Dapper is the world’s leading consumer blockchain company
We created CryptoKitties, the first non-fungible digital asset and the most popular consumer application of blockchain outside cryptocurrency
We are looking for a former founder or head of product with expertise building software platforms loved by developers. Experience in gaming is a bonus but not required – we would equally value familiarity with payments, consumer / social, and/or cryptocurrency
Ideal candidates will have proven experience building and leading world-class teams, navigating complex strategic landscapes, and setting a culture for product quality that runs through every facet of their work
We’re looking for someone willing to come in and try new things, understand what makes blockchain different and special, then lean into that – we are not interested in ripping off ideas (unless they’re brilliant) or reinventing the wheel (let’s try to fly instead)
We are building a suite of products around the Kitties in collaboration with our partners (see the KittyVerse) – we’re also working on some pre-launch stuff we can talk about after we get to know each other. We work in a highly technical space so fluency is expected, but we don’t need you to be a blockchain expert – we can get you there
Our hierarchy is very flexible so while we prefer you to build a team, we are fine with strong individual contributors especially if you have a rare specialty. We prefer full-time in Vancouver but are open to remote and to contractors
Our core team includes three former CEOs, four former CTOs, and alumni from Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Unity, ESPN, Ubisoft, Stanford, Columbia, and Waterloo among others. We raised $15M earlier this year from some of the world’s best investors including Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures, Chris Dixon of Andreessen Horowitz, and the founders of Dreamworks, Reddit, Coinbase, and Zynga, as well as Bill Tai and Naval Ravikant
CryptoKitties was incubated by Axiom Zen, a venture studio specialized in emerging technology. Founded in 2012, Axiom Zen has created four companies in the last six years: two venture-funded, two profitable; and accelerated several more. The group has pushed the field forward in blockchain, AR/VR, and AI/ML, among others, and was named first among Canada’s Most Innovative Companies.
