Pre-Series A

Roll is building blockchain infrastructure for social money. We believe blockchain-based social money can allow everyone to own, control and coordinate the value they create online. We're building a social money layer for the web that will handle issuance, distribution and provide pathways to use for all social money.

We're launching this quarter and issuing branded social money for some of the top digital creators in the world. The product will wrap around existing social platforms, giving fans and followers additional access while enabling creators to build their own social money economy without changing existing behavior.


Why join us?
  • Both founders have a long history as blockchain and crypto researchers, and previously ran a successful consulting for protocol design in the space

  • Funded by some of the top VCs and angels (and incubated out of Techstars New York)

  • Work on a problem that matters and make a real impact in the lives of creators and creative professionals. Help define the future of social money for communities across the globe.

Engineering team and processes

We operate on weekly release cycles. We use Github PRs for code reviews and coverage. We meet twice a week to discuss the week ahead, and look back on the week. Engineers work closely with our design and product teams. Engineers have a lot of say in how the product features are built, and how customers end up interacting with those.

Technical Challenges

We run our own nodes to get first-party blockchain data. Security is a top priority for us, including storing funds in cold storage (away from computers that are connected to the internet). We have unique challenges around some parts of the application that need us to move slowly and cautiously (such as smart contracts on the blockchain), and others that are more typical of a web application.

Projects you might work on
  • You would define our backend web architecture that underlies our application, and scale it as we grow. Your backend will interact with the blockchain and the frontend. You will define the development process we've adopted (using APIs for most interactions) and open it up for third-party applications down the road.
