Monad Labs is a contributor to the Monad blockchain, an ultra-high-performance EVM-compatible layer-1 blockchain designed to bring world adoption to decentralized apps. We help the EVM scale by enabling parallel execution and other significant innovations in distributed consensus and smart contract execution.
Monad offers developers the best of both worlds: unparalleled performance (10,000 transactions per second) and portability (full compatibility for Ethereum smart contracts).
We are founded by Jump Trading alums, and backed by notable leaders in the crypto space, including Dragonfly, Cobie, and Hasu. We have an office in NYC, with some team members working remotely from the US and Canada.
We are looking for a first Marketing hire to grow Monad’s brand and community. You’ll manage our socials and website, contribute to content (blog posts, announcements, threads), and experiment with growth hacking techniques that build our presence among both developers and crypto-native users.
You will need to be scrappy in tackling the many challenges facing an early-stage project, and strategic in identifying what initiatives or improvements to prioritize. You’ll need to be both creative and data-driven. We are looking for someone who loves crypto, is creative, is ambitious, is organized, and has substantial experience with growing a crypto project.
This role is crucial to Monad’s success, and will ultimately have a massive impact on helping Monad and crypto achieve mass adoption.

- You can balance strategy and execution
