About Us!

Banyan is a startup based in NYC, focused on decentralized storage and generally making the internet less bad. We're massive fans of the local-first software movement. We are very in favor of people having sovereign ownership over their data- we're rolling usable tech out to normal people to support these technologies getting more market share.

Our mission is to put data under the control of the user and push computation and coordination to the edge where possible. We believe this will improve users' experiences and make the internet a better place in many ways.

We're venture-backed and have solid runway - about to announce our series A. We have relationships with a large number of Filecoin miners and are rolling our software out into their datacenters for both Filecoin-based cold storage and custom Banyan hot storage. We feel good about our plans to raise again (soon!). For now, we're focused on releasing and selling a decentralized, local-first, and encrypted cloud storage product that could rival Dropbox or Backblaze. We're layering in compute as we see demand. After that's selling... our next steps are pretty ambitious... Think P2P CDNs :)

About you!

We are looking for a high-energy crypto-native who is able to: sell, solutionarchitect, write technical content, give talks, run programs for Banyan/in Filecoin community, handle devrel and participate in the working groups on behalf of Banyan.

TLDR: do all the non-code engineer things and be a technical bolster to our comms and GTM efforts.

If you are an engineer and you want to found something one day, this will be an AWESOME role to learn a lot of founder skills and have real impact on an early stage project.
