About us

At Staking Rewards, we believe in agency over one’s way of life. We give our users agency by empowering them to generate sustainable income streams through crypto asset staking. With our suite of data, tools and education, we make staking easy.

We are building the next generation staking explorer for the rapidly growing $300B+ staking industry, used by more than 400k investors, analysts and crypto community members worldwide. Our mission is to make staking transparent for everyone to earn passive income and secure decentralisation.

We are a close-knit team of ~20, working remotely from all across Asia, Europe and the Americas. Our unique data-driven products are being used by the likes of Coinbase and Bitcoin Suisse. We have built a strong, established brand that is recognized by industry leaders and regularly featured in outlets such as CoinDesk and Forbes. We are backed by some of the world's best crypto asset managers (Galaxy Digital, Coinshares, Digital Currency Group).

Now, we are at a crucial stage in our journey as the activity in staking is exploding. By pushing into both TradFi and Web3 at the same time, with highly regulated and complex product lines, we will establish Staking Rewards among the top firms in this new, fast-developing industry.

About the role

This is a unique, high-impact role. You will work closely with the Head of BD & Strategy to assess, prioritize and execute a set of crucial strategic projects. You will help develop, launch and distribute regulated financial data and investment products around index investing, staking and benchmark reference rates. Some of these products require regulatory licenses and high-profile TradFi strategic partnerships to be obtained. With your research and analysis, you will support setting and executing the overall company strategy for Staking Rewards as a whole.

Therefore, this role spans the full spectrum of strategy, BD and also project work:

  • General: Identifying and prioritizing problems, researching all necessary data and information to structure a proposed solution and come up with a plan of action, up to execution.
  • Strategic products & partnerships: Researching & scoping out business opportunities, prep pitching, structuring and negotiating deals, working out legal fineprint, financial modeling, to plain distribution of products, where help is needed.
  • Regulation: Preparation of regulatory documents and filings, keeping up with regulatory developments
  • Business intelligence & research, strategic planning and positioning, generating insights for marketing, keeping up with market developments, supporting product development
  • Diligent documentation all along the way, implementation and optimization of repeatable processes.

The scope of this role is very broad. You will jump into many different topics and learn quickly to get up to speed. It’s very hands-on – be prepared to get your hands dirty.

Very swiftly, you will execute whole projects by yourself, all while keeping efficient and structured communication up-, down- and across the Staking Rewards team.

This role is a unique opportunity to enter the crypto / staking industry with a well-established yet still small startup and shape its strategic course. Depending on your preference, this role could lead to managing a team or product, an analytical or more commercial role. Either way, you will establish yourself early in a growing team managing a full index product line and the company strategy.

About you

You have worked 18 months + as a strategy consultant for one of the Big 3 or other leading management / strategy consulting firms. Alternatively, you have worked as an analyst in PE, VC or in strategy at a VC-backed, fast-growth tier 1 startup / scaleup in Tech / Fintech. Ideally, you have had some exposure to the crypto industry in the past (though no prerequisite).

In terms of market / industry knowledge, the following topics give you a headstart:

  • Crypto general understanding; Staking is nice to have, Web3 (DeFi) industry is a big ++
  • Market microstructure (players and plumbing of the market)
  • Financial industry general understanding (TradFi)
  • Financial regulation (status quo and trends)

You are able to source, analyze and process data into actionable insights, using Excel, Google Sheets, Python, SQL or else. You are able to distill the essence of a topic and get it across in a clear and concise manner, using your data and research to build your case (ie. logical, hypothesis-driven reasoning and testing of assumptions).

You are an efficient and structured communicator: You know when, what and whom to ask at the right time and plan ahead accordingly. You understand how your actions (and your projects) affect all other parts of the business and account for interdependencies.

We value honesty, transparency and quick feedback loops. Naturally, you are straightforward and reliable. You are entrepreneurial – you own your stuff.

Growth mindset over fixed mindset. High energy, low ego.
