Company Description

Delphi Digital is a research-driven firm dedicated to advancing the understanding and development of the growing digital asset market. Our foundations lie in producing institutional-grade research for some of crypto’s top funds, institutions, and investors. Delphi’s goal is to continue to drive the crypto asset space forward by investing both financial and intellectual capital into projects, and participating actively to help shape the ecosystems we believe in.

Your Role

We’re looking for someone who is passionate about the intersection of crypto and gaming, as well as peripheral implementations across virtual worlds and environments broadly. Your mission, with the support of a veteran multidisciplinary research team, will be to uncover unique insights about the gaming sector through the lense of crypto. Importantly, this is not solely limited to a crypto gaming focus, as we firmly believe that there are many lessons to be learned from the evolution of video games over the last 20+ years, with a particular focus on monetization models and game economies. 

The right candidate must be confident working autonomously, have high accountability, strong communication skills, and a burning passion for both the gaming and crypto industries. We are looking for someone who lives and breathes virtual worlds, and is ready to shape the next chapter for this sector.

  • 12+ months of relevant experience, which can include research,  investments, or operations experience, including as active governance participants or community contributors, within web3 projects
  • Comfortable working with crypto data providers such as Nansen, Nonfungibles, DappRadar. Ability to execute custom data queries to build dashboards via platforms like Dune Analytics is a major plus
  • Strategic mindset with sharp quantitative and analytical thinking as well as great attention to detail: analytical, fact-driven yet pragmatic working style
  • Autonomous working style, as well as the ability to synthesize and present complex data, while getting operational and working “hands-on”
  • Strong financial modeling and research skills
  • Team-oriented attitude and familiarity and passion for working in distributed teams and in remote working environments

Additional Information

  • Language Skills: Fluent English, both spoken and written
  • Location: Global, Western Hemisphere preferred
  • Earliest starting date: Q3 2022
  • Candidates will be asked to submit a 3-6 page research report on either a topic, traditional video game, or crypto gaming project of their choice

Benefits & Compensation: 

  • Flexible schedule: You’ll be able to work remotely and manage your own time. As long as your core responsibilities are met, your schedule is what you make of it. We strongly believe a proper balance between work and free time allows for creativity and innovation to thrive.
  • Compensation: Competitive compensation package with potential equity and bonus upside

  • Technology/Workspace budget: Up to $4000 to help build your work-from-home setup.

  • Impact: You will have the opportunity to work with ambitious projects that will have a meaningful impact in advancing the future of the industry.
  • Autonomy: While you’ll benefit from the Delphi brand and resources, you’ll have strong autonomy in building your team and leading your project.
  • Learning: You’ll benefit from the cumulative knowledge base of Delphi’s 130+ person team as well as our portfolio companies and extended network. The only limit to your rate of learning will be your own initiative.
