  • Strong knowledge of relevant laws and regulations, such as securities, commodities, anti-money laundering (AML), and data privacy.

  • Experience working in or with the crypto industry, understanding its unique challenges and opportunities.

  • Proven track record of successfully engaging with regulatory issues and compliance programs.

  • Excellent drafting, negotiation, and communication skills.

Nice to Have
  • Ability to translate complex legal and regulatory language into layman's terms for internal stakeholders.

  • A visionary, yet grounded approach to legal matters, with an ability to balance vision with operational considerations.

  • Technical skills and/or product development or start-up experience.

  • A belief in the promise of decentralized public blockchains

  • Affirmation of the importance of privacy and open access to cryptography

  • An understanding and appreciation for building in the open and contributing open-source public goods to technology communities.

  • Ability to adapt and navigate through a rapidly evolving regulatory landscape.

About Flashbots

Flashbots started in 2020 as a research and development organization formed to mitigate the negative externalities and existential risks posed by Maximal Extractable Value (MEV) to smart-contract blockchains, starting with Ethereum. We build products to maximally decentralize public blockchains, redistribute MEV, and empower users. We work closely with our community to ensure that our products have a positive impact, are secure, and can be used in production at scale.

Our Impact

Since the launch of Flashbots, we have had an immense impact on the world of cryptocurrency. The Flashbots Auction was launched in alpha in January 2021 and was quickly adopted by almost all Ethereum miners. Prior to Ethereum's Merge in 2022, Flashbots launched MEV-Boost, a temporary solution for out-of-protocol proposer-builder separation. MEV-Boost has since been adopted by over 90% of Ethereum validators and has significantly influenced the Ethereum PoS ecosystem. Now, Flashbots continues its journey with the introduction of novel privacy primitives and SUAVE.

Our Research

Flashbots Research is an independent arm of the organization that aims to become the hub of MEV research. In addition to conducting in-house analysis, Flashbots Research collaborates with external researchers at other institutions via an external grants program. Flashbots Research continues to publish seminal research on MEV, covering a wide range of topics including cross-chain MEV, EIP1559 and MEV, how ETH2 affects MEV, SGX and privacy, and more.
