What is thirdweb?

Glad you asked!

We’re empowering builders to create a new generation of the internet.

Cool. So, what does that mean?

We make building in web3 incredibly easy. Our tools help everyone from developers to creators build the web3 apps and features of their dreams.

Y’know, no one knows what exactly the future of web3 will look like, but what we do know is that it will a transformative impact on our world. That’s why we’re focused on unleashing the many promises of web3 to a whole generation of builders. Because when builders have the right tools at their fingertips—magic happens.

We started thirdweb in the second half of 2021 and our community of builders has exploded ever since. Over 1M unique wallets have interacted with our contracts on mainnet, deploying tens of thousands of projects to the same. It’s been a hell of a journey so far, and the momentum is only increasing.

We’re looking to grow our team to help us become the default platform of choice for anyone who wants to build web3 apps and services.

Our Founders
thirdweb was founded by builders with deep experience in tech and a track record of creating epic companies: Furqan Rydhan, previous Founder and CTO of Applovin (IPO), and CTO of Bebo (Acquired by Amazon); and Steven Bartlett, previous Founder and CEO of Social Chain (IPO). Now they’ve got their sights set on a new challenge, and are building a bold team to pave the way with them.

Work in a small team of engineers to build excellent developers' experiences on thirdweb. You will build the infrastructure that powers the thirdweb platform. You will make critical decisions on setting up the infrastructure for the unified interface to upload files to decentralized storage, web, and blockchain analytical data pipeline, and low latency indexing for smart contracts.

  • Are passionate about decentralization, especially for data availability, and constantly pushing the boundary of decentralized technologies
  • Are excited about working in a fast-paced, unstructured environment that prioritizes delivering impact and learning over process
  • Are curious about technology outside of your direct expertise and have an appetite for learning
  • Are a self-starter in proposing and carrying out technical solutions to ambiguous business problems
  • Know when and how to make calculated tradeoffs to meet the needs of the customer and business
