About Primitives

At Primitives, we are working to build the easiest, most joyful way to create and share NFTs. We believe NFTs will be ubiquitous mediums for expression and connection, not just for crypto-natives, but for everyone.
 
We’re working towards a future where Primitives can be the hub for the entire NFT experience, from creation to minting, remixing, and sharing. As part of this, we’re building a social network based on shared assets across crypto wallets, creating new ways to facilitate connections and online experiences. We’re excited to be building on Solana.
Primitives is currently a team of 11 full-time employees. We are a backed by investors including Redpoint Ventures, Union Square Ventures, Harlem Capital, and Stellation Capital. To learn more about our mission, check out primitives.xyz and our most recent TechCrunch feature.

What we're looking for

We are looking to grow our team of talented software engineers (currently four individuals full-time) to build the next generation of NFT creation & connection. We are scaling our product and community rapidly – you will serve as a pillar for this growth by helping to shape our technical architecture, ship new features, and enhance our core platform.
 
Are you able to investigate, own and architect solutions to large product challenges? Do you thrive as a self-motivated person who takes on tasks and figures out all that is needed to get them done? Are you passionate about the future of NFTs, wallets, and social connection? Do you get fired up about building future of the internet for new and experienced crypto users alike? If that sounds like you, we’d love to chat :)
