Medusa is a startup focused on unlocking and securing the world's data via cryptography and distributed systems.

We are looking for a co-founder with a strong background in product, business development, and/or user experience to join our team and help us grow.

About Medusa

At Medusa, we're on a mission to unlock and secure private data. The Web needs stronger primitives for owning, securing, sharing, and monetizing data. Cryptography and decentralized applications give users full control over their data, enabling security, privacy, and new forms of data economies.

Medusa Access Control is a threshold network of data custodians that applications control via smart contracts. The network secures keys to unlock encrypted data on IPFS (or other open storage networks) based on programmatic rules defined by application developers. This means we can store encrypted data on open networks and control access to that data with an open network, Medusa.

We're looking for a co-founder with a strong background in product design, business development, and/or user experience to join our team and help us execute this vision. If you share our passion for building innovative Web3 products that unlock and secure the world's data, we invite you to join us at Medusa.


  • Work closely with the technical co-founder and advisors to develop and execute a product vision and roadmap that aligns with Medusa's mission and values
  • Define and prioritize product features based on user feedback, market research, and industry trends, while taking into account the security and privacy concerns of our users
  • Lead the product design process, from ideation to prototyping to launching, and ensure that the product is easy to use and understand for our users
  • Collaborate with the technical team to ensure that the product is developed with a user-centric approach, and meets the highest standards of security and privacy
  • Develop and execute business strategies that drive user acquisition, retention, and monetization, and work with our advisors to identify and evaluate potential partners and vendors that can enhance the product's value proposition
  • Build and maintain relationships with key stakeholders, including investors, customers, and partners, and represent Medusa at industry events and conferences
  • Identify and secure fundraising to support organizational growth.
  • Help build a culture of innovation, collaboration, and excellence at Medusa, and recruit and manage a team of designers, product managers, and business development professionals as the company grows.


  • Proven experience as a product manager, business development manager, or UX designer in the web3 or blockchain industry, with a track record of delivering successful products and/or services
  • Previous experience leading fundraising utilizing creative strategies to secure funding.
  • Deep understanding of blockchain technology and its potential applications, and a passion for using technology to unlock and secure the world's data
  • Strong analytical skills and ability to make data-driven decisions, while also being able to think creatively and outside the box
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills, and the ability to work effectively with cross-functional teams
  • Self-motivated and able to work independently, with a sense of ownership and accountability for the success of the product and the company
  • Experience working in a startup environment is preferred, and a willingness to roll up your sleeves and do whatever it takes to help the company succeed is essential
  • Preferably Europe-based or willing to travel to colocate with the team (especially in the early stages!)

If you are passionate about building innovative web3 products that unlock and secure the world's data, and have the skills and experience to help lead Medusa's product, business, and design efforts, we would love to hear from you.
