Overview

Today, from the moment you connect to the internet, most websites focus on learning everything about you. In Web 3, the moment you share an Ethereum, Bitcoin, Solana, or Tezos wallet address with anyone, you expose your entire on-chain transaction history to the world.

To us, this is crazy. We should have complete agency and control over what stories we share and how we share them. We believe the same should be true on the internet. This is why we are stewarding the development of Tari, a default-private digital asset protocol.

Tari is unique with a highly intentional design. Our mission is to make it easy for developers to create and deploy Web 3 interoperable, highly scalable, and secure applications without spending months on audits.

In addition to stewarding the development of this new protocol, we are building the first application that will use it. This app is Yat, a new censorship-resistant internet identity system that enables everyone to use a personalized string of emojis as their universal username.

Why emojis? Over 90% of online users on Earth use emojis every single day. They are genuinely our global language. We use them to tell stories and connect with others in a beautifully simple way. Yats create a system that allows people to own a single emoji or string of emojis that best represents them. Yats are owned by whoever creates them and are an internet freedom product. Imagine a world where we all own self-sovereign emoji identities that are self-directed, deeply censorship-resistant, and cannot be canceled.

What if instead of johnsmith535, someone could be 🔥🐉 or 👑 🎳(kingpin) or 🦄🤖💃? They could use this unique emoji username to do the same things as a standard username, like sending or receiving money, chatting with friends, or creating a website. This would change how we connect. We could express ourselves in truly remarkable ways instead of one-dimensional email addresses, usernames, or phone numbers that say nothing about us. The possibilities are endless.

At Yat Labs, we are building an incredibly talented and dedicated team to make Yat the preferred form of self-sovereign identity for everyone on Earth.

Yat and Tari are the brainchildren of Tari Labs, the fast-growing startup focused on building privacy and pervasive privacy technologies for everyone on Earth. They were both co-founded by Naveen Jain (who also founded Sparkart). They are backed by Blockchain Capital, Pantera Capital, Multicoin Capital, Trinity Ventures, Redpoint Ventures, Canaan Partners, Slow Ventures, and many more of the best investors in the world.

And who are you? We’re looking for a proactive and resourceful problem-solver who thrives in a fast-paced, diverse environment. The right person will have deep integrity, and meticulous attention to detail, and will embody Tari’s culture and values. Responsiveness and top-notch communication skills are essential. You will be expected to provide a combination of business and personal support to the CEO while having exceptional communication skills and will be resourceful in building relationships. This role is a gatekeeper to our CEO and a reflection of him both internally and externally.
