Akash Network is developing the world’s first and only decentralized cloud computing marketplace, enabling any data center and anyone with a computer to become a cloud provider by offering their unused compute cycles in a safe and frictionless marketplace. As the first decentralized cloud for DeFi, Akash DeCloud greatly accelerates scale and price performance for DeFi, decentralized organizations, and high-growth industries like machine learning/AI. Through Akash’s platform, developers can easily and securely access cloud compute at a cost ten times lower than the current market providers (AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure). The platform achieves these benefits by integrating advanced containerization technology with a unique staking model to accelerate adoption.

Why join us?

  • Great leadership. Greg, the CEO of Akash has a track record for building successful companies that put the developer first.

At AngelHack, he helped launch several developer companies including Firebase, which was later acquired by Google.

  • We’ve grown by 400x since the launch of Akash Network. Deployments and AKT spend are both steadily rising and we’ve been featured in Yahoo! Finance, Messari, BeinCrypto, Cointelegraph and more. Joining Akash means that you will be at the forefront of Web3.0.

  • Impactful work. Our work has the ability to directly impact communities in need. Empowering marginalized developers with the ability to obtain a high-quality, dependable, resistant platform without the need for traditional banking or monetary systems.

  • A culture of autonomy. Own the work you produce, receive recognition for high-quality, highly dependable, and creative work. An amazingly independent work environment that encourages and aligns with our views of self-sovereignty and autonomous governing.

  • The focus is on “we” not “me.” Akash is a tightly woven team. While highly distributed and remote, we strive to ensure team members are empowered, aligned, and equipped to do the best work possible. A blameless retrospective with a highly introspective team allows for unparalleled career and individual growth.

  • It’s fun. We have so much work to do, how can we possibly accomplish it all? We’re high energy, infectiously positive and above all relentless in our pursuit to make a project we all care so deeply about, into a successful reality.
