About the Job

What we do

Violet is building on-chain compliance and identity infrastructure. Our mission is to evolve trust in Web3.

Violet is a primitive applicable to many use cases, however we are most excited about catalyzing institutional participation across DeFi in the near term. We believe this is key for the industry to expand and become more robust.

Specifically we are initially building an on-chain infrastructure product that solves institutional compliance requirements - while maximizing privacy for individual participants. We intend this infrastructure to be utilized by DeFi builders as they start engaging institutional liquidity and wish to grow regulatory trust in their platforms. Our early work includes www.humanbound.xyz.

Violet sits at the intersection of web2 and web3, which translates to engineering across old and new UX patterns, requiring deep holistic thinking in producing delightful software - which is why we are looking for a senior frontend engineer to join our team.

Violet is backed by top crypto investors and traditional investors alike, including BlueYard and founders / senior leadership at Ethereum, Filecoin, Anchorage, Coinbase, Wise, Uniswap, Argent, and many more.
