Having just raised $27m in funding from investors including Polychain Capital, Coinbase Ventures and Circle Ventures, Evmos is now poised to accelerate towards our goal of becoming the playground for Ethereum Apps in the Cosmos ecosystem.

About The Role

Technical Product Manager (Core Engineering)

The core protocol engineering team builds reliable and performant blockchain node software for validators to run the Evmos Blockchain and features that allow developers to build interoperable dApps on the EVM and place them on our dApp Store.

  • Employment Type: Full-Time
  • Location: Preferably Berlin, although exceptions will be considered for candidates within Europe.

Your Responsibilities in the Role

  • Think Forward: Prioritize the core engineering roadmap and align with company goals and CPO
  • Be a Filter: Set priorities and remove blockers for a highly-skilled, driven engineering team to keep them focused on building and learning
  • Keep Scope: Define the technical scope using user stories and work closely with engineers to ensure technical specifications align with the project's scope and goals.
  • Manage Backlog: Maintain and prioritize the Linear board to ensure a clear and well-structured backlog that supports efficient development cycles.
  • Keep in Sync: Lead regular Core Engineering syncs to ensure effective communication and coordination within the engineering team.

  • Knowledge of blockchain technology and trends, allowing engagement with our blockchain-focused projects.
