The Role

About Drift Labs

Drift Labs is the core contributor to Drift Protocol, the largest perpetual swaps DEX on Solana. Drift Protocol’s goal is to make DEXs the best way to trade derivatives. Despite the decentralized nature of crypto, centralized derivatives exchanges still remain dominant - they're already fast, familiar and reliable however they lack immutability and transparency.

Drift’s vision is to create a centralised user experience built on decentralised rails. We’re backed by Multicoin Capital, Polychain Ventures, Ethereal and many more. The team is made up of experienced traders and builders from DeFi and traditional finance working to make this a reality.

The Opportunity

Drift Labs is expanding its presence in the DeFi ecosystem by increasing focus on business development and coverage across the product verticals. The business development manager will work directly with the Drift core contributors and Institutional Coverage Manager to create a robust user onboarding experience and enable deeper partnership within the broader Solana community.

Drift Labs pays a competitive salary with upside potential.
