Build the foundations of an open economy
What we do
We believe in the power of technology to change the world by enabling new ways for individuals and businesses to communicate, create, and transact value. However, we recognize that some old traditions, institutions, and ideas are being carried over from the days before the Internet.
We empower creative people all over the world to build new software-based global systems and communities, no matter where they live. We do this by driving technological innovation, open-source collaboration, and great user experience design.
How we work
We’re focused on creating a collaborative work environment where people are happy and productive. We don’t let geography or borders define us: we are a distributed team with members all over the world.
We apply proven remote and organizational practices to ensure that our team is always in sync.

How long does the hiring process take?
It usually takes 4-6 weeks from the time you submit your application to an offer. The exact timing depends on matching your availability to schedule the work test. We try our best to ensure a swift process while also committing plenty of time to getting to know each other.
Who will I be talking to during the hiring process?
You’ll talk to our hiring manager, your prospective teammates, your assigned work test coach and the CEO. Each candidate usually interacts with at least four OpenZeppelin team members.
What’s the work test like?
The work test is a custom challenge guided by a coach from OpenZeppelin. You can think about it as an audition. Work tests should require an effort of roughly 10 hours per week, spanning no more than three weeks. Your time is paid regardless of the output.
How can I contact OpenZeppelin if I have questions about my application?
Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve applied in the past. Can I reapply?
Yes! Our needs are constantly evolving. If you’d like to reapply for the same or a different position, feel free to do so.
Does OpenZeppelin offer internship programs?
At our current stage, we’re not ready to offer internship programs that would add value to both ends. If we ever offer internship programs, they’ll be up on our Jobs page.
Do you follow up with candidates you’ve decided not to move forward with?
We try to make sure everyone is kept up-to-date with their application status. Whether we see a match or not, we will reach out to you within two weeks.
