At Harpie, our mission is to be the driving force of crypto mass adoption by protecting crypto traders from theft.
We’re a small and ethically-driven team that takes pride in working on projects that matter. Every day is a new challenge at Harpie, as our work operates on the cutting edge of blockchain technology. By joining the Harpie team, you’ll be joining a mission-focused group that always enjoys a new challenge, appreciates teamwork, and loves learning on the job.
Harpie is currently building the first firewall that stops theft and scams on-chain. We are able to detect and eliminate malicious transactions before they have an opportunity to execute; we do this by taking advantage of Ethereum’s consensus algorithm. We are funded by world-class investors, including Dragonfly, Coinbase Ventures, OpenSea, Orange DAO, and founding team members of Messari and Quantstamp.
We are remote-first!
