Source is a data management layer built for the decentralized web. Today's decentralized storage networks rely on centralized standards of data management; stifling Web3 innovation. Source brings data management into the fold and unlocks the true potential of decentralized networks. With it, data become interoperable; empowering developers to make apps and devices that talk to each other, users truly own their data, and information is cryptographically secured to ensure trust.

Active Roles

Why join us?

  • Decentralized applications are a fast-growing market expected to reach $368B+ by 2027 and Source is pioneering the foundational technologies to help it get there and go beyond.

Working at Source Inc.

Strive for Excellence

Excellence is how we will build the future of the democratized and decentralized web. We strive for excellence in everything we do and are proud of pushing boundaries, thinking outside the box, continuously improving to produce great work.

Respect Each Other

We're different, and we may not always agree with one another, but we always accept each other. We communicate with an open mind, respect, and humility and appreciate a new or different perspective. In the long, run we know this will lead to better results.

Be Authentic

We are at our best when we can bring our authentic self, and communicate openly and with honesty. This allows us to understand our successes and failures, and ultimately become better problem solvers.

Work-life Balance

We strongly believe that maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a balance between work-life enables us to be high performers and deliver exceptional results.

Diversity and Inclusion

We take a systems approach to diversity and inclusion. Our system for recruiting, growing, promoting, and retaining people is integrated. Because we perceive a larger system, we make decisions that incorporate more dynamics, and we have better chances to learn more.

Because inclusion is a behaviour, we behave in a welcoming way. We're comfortable in being our whole selves at work, so that everybody can be their whole selves at work. Good ideas can come from anywhere. We solicit input on decisions because prefer large, fluffy, decision trees. Large decision trees are more likely to create better decisions and better experiences for everyone. We communicate the intuition for decisions. We iterate.

We are conscious and deliberate about how we construct job descriptions. We have flexible work hours, unlimited days off, competitive compensation, and a technology spending budget available for everybody.
