at Parity Technologies
Chief Creative Director
Location: Worldwide remote, ideally not more than +/-7 hours from CET
Parity is the pioneer in providing the most enterprise-ready and consumer-ready platform of tools and technologies for Web3. Inspired by Founder and Chief Architect Gavin Wood, who himself coined the term Web3 back in 2014, Parity brings together a global team of people who share a passion and purpose for Polkadot, a community that builds on blockchain based technologies a fairer internet where users control their own data, identity and destiny, putting power back into the hands of the individual. Polkadot’s tech stack leverages a new, foundational architecture for this next generation of the web, bringing with it an entire ecosystem of innovation that will shape countless aspects of our lives over the coming decades. Already recognized as one of the driving forces behind Web3, Polkadot has the largest ecosystem of Web3 developers on the planet, and the broadest coverage of institutional investors in the space.
“I think this is a foundational technology change, a new architecture for building an entirely new generation of computing systems…It’s as foundational an architecture shift as the ones from mainframes to PCs,from PCs to web, from web to mobile, or from traditional software to AI. It’s a fundamental shift and building this out is a 25- to 30-year process.”
