Aptos is a people-first blockchain on a mission to help billions of people achieve universal and fair access to decentralized assets in a safe and scalable way.
Founded by some of the original creators and maintainers that researched, designed, and built the Diem blockchain to serve this purpose, we have dedicated several years toward this mission. We believe the open-source Diem technology we have developed is an important foundation of a safe and scalable web3 world where everyone has more equitable opportunities to grow and access financial assets with lower fees and fewer intermediaries.
Aptos (Ohlone for "The People") encompasses our mission and ethos for why we build.
About The Role
We are searching for a Business Development Lead to create our partnerships strategy, close deals, and manage partners to expand the Aptos network into large financial institutions that are looking to build new investment, banking, and lending products, such as tokenizing currently existing assets, creating new settlement rails, or hosting trades on the speedy Aptos network. As a lead, you will be responsible for scoping potential partners among banks, lenders, funds, investment managers, and brokers, building deep relationships at the executive level with these financial institutions, forming and executing our partnership strategy, building internal business cases, negotiating complex deals, and working cross-functionally with key internal stakeholders to further our mission. We are looking for someone who can exist comfortably among the ranks of traditional finance, but who can distill the problems they discover in those ranks into guidance for our product and engineering teams to turn into new products on our network that can help solve those problems.
