Posted on Thursday, February 22, 2024
At Centrifuge, we're pioneering the future of finance by bringing real-world assets onchain.
Founded in 2017, we’ve played a major role in shaping the real-world asset industry as we know it today. Centrifuge minted MakerDAO’s first real-world asset, launched the RWA Market with Aave and brought the first credit fund’s operations onchain with BlockTower. And that’s just the beginning. We’re on a mission to bring the multi-trillion dollar world of credit onchain by providing a faster, easier and better system for all parties involved.
Centrifuge is well funded by leading VCs and has been a major force in the institutional adoption of tokenized assets. We believe deeply that a rising tide lifts all ships and have worked to drive the industry forward with the Tokenized Asset Coalition, Real-World Asset Summit and industry recognized token standards.
We’re looking for a Director of Institutional Sales to lead our institutional go-to-market.
The perfect hire combines an executive presence with the ability to roll your sleeves up and dive into the trenches of a fast-growth early-stage startup. You will own the institutional investor go-to-market strategy, including direct sales, pipeline development, and the overall success of our institutional relationships. You will have your finger on the pulse of what’s happening in traditional capital markets and be able to synthesize insights into actionable opportunities for product and marketing. You should love influencing decision makers, managing multiple stakeholders at large organizations and making deals happen. You should be passionate about bridging the gaps between digital assets, traditional finance, and credit and have conviction in your belief that blockchain technology can improve the financial system.

  • Strong leader and individual contributor
  • High EQ and interpersonal skills
  • Willingness to learn and develop intuition for the fast-moving and sophisticated trends within tokenization
  • Ability to delve deeply into topics within credit and finance, investment and allocation strategies, portfolio and risk management, and deal structuring
  • Comfort working independently, within a small team, and in a fast-paced startup environment
  • Excitement to hit the ground running on day one and passionate to help lead and shape the future of RWA
