Espresso Systems is the lead developer of Espresso: the coordination layer for cross-chain transactions and interactions. We are building a network and marketplace that enables chains to interoperate seamlessly, without sacrificing scale or sovereignty. Chains that are fueled by Espresso create better experiences for their users and capture more value for their ecosystems.
At Espresso, we work with leading projects developing chains, rollups, and applications including Offchain Labs, Polygon, Cartesi, RARI Chain, and beyond. We support these teams in offering users an open, interoperable experience through a pragmatic and diligent approach to infrastructure design and by harnessing the power of free and fair markets.
Contributors to Espresso comprise a diverse and passionate team located around the world. We are developers, designers, and researchers who have contributed in academia, in open source communities, in policymaking, and beyond. We are backed by over $50m in funding from leading investors in technology and crypto including a16z, Greylock Partners, Electric Capital, Sequoia Capital, and Polychain Capital.
In the last year, Espresso has on-boarded 45 partners (and counting). Espresso’s success as a project and as a protocol is predicated upon the success of our partners. As Partnerships Marketing Lead, it will be your job to go deep across all of our partners, understand their priorities and their communities, and amplify their work to the world. You love learning about new projects, not just through reading whitepapers but also through using the products, chatting with founders, and embedding in their communities. You are happiest when you have multiple workstreams going at once.
