Active Roles

Why join us?

  • We're the first decentralized prediction markets platform on Solana. We launched on mainnet recently with No-Loss competitions, which are a new type of product that allows users to dip their toe into both crypto and prediction markets via a fun, experimental, gamified experience.

  • We are led by DeFi power users with 10+ collective years of expertise in crypto and backed by venture studio e^{i} Ventures.

  • We raised a seed round of $3.5M from notable investors such as Alameda Research, Republic Capital, and Reciprocal Ventures.


Engineering at Hedgehog Markets

Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team is empowered to have a bias towards ownership and action. We operate on one-week cycles; engineers can spec independently if they choose, or they can work with the product manager or community teams to map it out. Then, they work on the feature individually. We use Pull Requests on GitHub to conduct code reviews. We also ensure new code is UAT'd; we currently push to production once a week but will push more frequently for necessary hot fixes.

Technical Challenges

Because we are built on the blockchain, our engineers must think differently about how that impacts data fetching and user experience. The ultimate goal of users having a seamless experience, without needing to know the technical systems behind it, remains the same. But, how we get there is different.
