Company Description

What we're doing at BRD 

BRD is a team made up of innovators, self-starters, independent thinkers, and builders that are at the heart of a financial revolution. We go against the grain to change the world. We’re enabling true financial sovereignty to people around the globe by building out the infrastructure and consumer applications surrounding Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and other digital assets. BRD is a completely non-custodial wallet, making it the most reliable and secure way to hold funds without the need for a bank or third party. Your money is your money.

Until BRD, non-custodial applications have been clunky and difficult to use, causing people to give up and use custodial options instead. The main reason for our success is because we combine the intuitiveness that custodial options offer, with the security of a non-custodial, completely peer-to-peer system. We rigorously design, redesign, test, and experiment to ensure our customers have a positive, safe experience.

BRD is leading the charge towards the next frontier in FinTech - adding cryptocurrency to every financial services offering. With Blockset by BRD, the best enterprise-grade digital asset platform in the market, we are helping global banking leaders, innovators, and the next unicorns build their next generation financial services solutions. Recently we unveiled the world’s first Wallet-as-a-Service offering that already has the market buzzing and competitors rushing to catch up.  Customers are leaning on BRD to help them with business and technical strategy for multi-billion dollar crypto projects. Why? Because we offer the leading experts, the most robust technology, and the best vision in the industry.

Lastly, we embrace a decentralized culture. We put high amounts of trust with whoever works with us. That is why all employees of BRD get unlimited vacation days, sick days, and have the option of working completely remotely. We host multiple in-person meetups throughout the year that are not only lots of fun, but also a great way to strategize our next steps, get closer as a team, and celebrate our accomplishments. And we offer competitive benefits, a bonus program, home office stipend, and more! As a financial infrastructure company, our mission is unlikely to ever be complete. We continually strive to bring the power of our apps to new regions of the world, some of which have never had wide access to banking functionality. To date, BRD supports over 7 million users across 170 countries, but this is just the beginning. If you’re a disruptor with a relentless attitude to make a difference, then BRD may be your next home.
