Executive Assistant

  • Full-time

Company Description

Founded in July 2021, TBD is Block’s newest business unit. Our team is building an open developer platform and primitives that will help unlock the next wave of innovation in financial services — which we believe will be decentralized, permissionless, and non-custodial. As such, we will eschew custodial and traditional centralized approaches — and instead, shape Block’s strategy in building for a non-custodial world, embracing the decentralized and democratized nature of crypto. The offerings we build will provide developers, institutions, and individuals with the capabilities needed to access this decentralized future. Our vision is to leverage bitcoin and other blockchain technologies to reinvent the global financial system in an open and permissionless way to further Block’s mission of economic empowerment and financial inclusion for all, with a global focus.
