dYdX is a protocol for decentralized derivatives and margin trading built on the Ethereum blockchain. With dYdX anybody can short, gain leverage, and trade options on any decentralized asset.

Our first product, expo, allows anyone to go short or get leverage by simply buying a token. Expo integrates directly with the blockchain so users can margin trade with no intermediaries.

At dYdX you'll have an opportunity to build state-of-the-art decentralized technology that will redefine global financial markets. By joining us at this early stage you will make fundamental decisions that will shape the course of dYdX. We prefer passionate quick learners with a history of excellence at top companies and/or universities.
