  • Is able to unblock individuals when they are faced with technical challenges
  • Is a strong communicator who can collaborate well with other non-technical functions (e.g. Product & Design)
  • Has the courage to try out new tools, fail fast, and dive into unknowns to solve new and challenging problems

  • Developing DApps or interacting with blockchains
