About Swirlds Labs:

Swirlds Labs was established with the mission to accelerate the future, built on Hedera – the most used, greenest, enterprise-grade public ledger for the decentralized economy. Our vision is to enable ‘Shared Worlds,’ where anyone can gather, collaborate, conduct commerce, and control their own online footprint. We will enable this vision by continuing to provide development and other support for the Hedera network, building community and enterprise solutions that enable fast, rapidly scalable adoption of Hedera network services, and cultivating ‘moonshot’ projects that will change the way humans and organizations interact in cyberspace.

You will work with both the Hedera community and Hedera Governing Council to define, validate, and prioritize roadmap items. This will include defining epics and user stories to drive product development by Hedera’s engineering teams and partners. You will also work closely with business development and marketing to define the Hedera value proposition in the market. This can include supporting product messaging as well as defining integration models with the Hedera Mainnet.
