About OpenCover

OpenCover is the #1 source for DeFi cover data, news and insights.

With over $2.7 billion lost to DeFi exploits in 2022 alone, risk mitigation has become the fundamental bottleneck to wider DeFi adoption.

DeFi Cover (aka insurance) is a rapidly emerging industry with a critical lack of visibility.

OpenCover is assembling a world-class team of researchers, engineers and business leaders passionate about de-risking DeFi to drive the next wave of adoption.

OpenCover is backed by leading investors including NFX, Alliance, Village Global & OrangeDAO.

  • Support product and growth efforts with data, insights and content
  • Be the first to know about the latest developments in the industry (e.g. CT, Discords)
  • Track content-related KPIs and surface performance insights to the team

Desired experience

  • 2+ years of experience as a Blockchain/Crypto/DeFi researcher or analyst
  • Extensive first-hand experience using DeFi, familiarity with cover protocols a big plus
  • 2+ years of experience writing educational content on complex topics for general audiences
