  • Collaborate with the ecosystem participants (e.g. node operators and developers) and engineering teams on the delivery of the product roadmap
  • Evaluate and prioritize specific opportunities and areas of improvement for the Mina protocol
  • Develop product requirements
  • Collaborate with engineering, cryptography & other teams in the ecosystem to design, develop, build, QA, and release new products & developer tools for the Mina protocol
