Overview

Tari Labs, a digital assets-focused blockchain organization that believes privacy on the internet should be pervasive and available to all, was co-founded by Naveen Jain (who also founded Sparkart). And in case you’re worried about funding (stability), Yat is backed by Blockchain Capital, Pantera Capital, Multicoin Capital, Trinity Ventures, Redpoint Ventures, Canaan Partners, and Slow Ventures (as well as some of the best investors in the world).

Yat is the brainchild of Tari Labs. It’s really about connecting to the universal language of visual representation in a whole new way; one that celebrates individuals, community, and everyone’s right to privacy in the digital realm. We don’t want to say we’re changing the world, but yeah, we are.

We also happen to be one of the fastest-growing consumer products of all time (👑 us), and as such, we need an incredibly talented team dedicated to making sure it’s continued 🚀 from here on out.

We are looking for people who are fearless, who want to fight for internet freedom, and who believe that privacy is a basic human right for everyone on Earth. We want to collaborate with people who push their own definition of excellence every day, who desire full ownership over their ability to make a meaningful impact, and who don’t want to be a cog in a giant machine. If this sounds exciting to you, join us.

Open source is vital to Tari, we rely on many amazing projects from the community to run our business and regularly share with the world what we build internally. We are looking for a motivated, forward-thinking individual to take Tari’s open-source operations to the next level.
