Kadena is the industry’s only scalable layer 1 Proof of Work (PoW) blockchain. The principal feature that drives Kadena is scalability, which enables Kadena to deliver infrastructure-grade performance for any blockchain project. Along with our own smart contract language Pact, Kadena’s platform provides the world the tools and environment to turn ideas and ambitions into reality. Founded by Stuart Popejoy and William Martino who created JP Morgan’s first blockchain and led the SEC’s Crypto Committee, Kadena aims to allow for true blockchain mass adoption. At Kadena, we value diversity, curiosity, a work/life balance, kindness, and teamwork.


The Director of NFT’s main goal is to take responsibility for the Marmalade product and the overall growth of Kadena’s NFT ecosystem. Marmalade is Kadena’s NFT tooling platform and developer infrastructure that will power the next generation of blockchain-based projects and initiatives ready for mainstream adoption. The candidate will set strategic business priorities for Marmalade that will help ultimately propel Kadena and its ecosystem to leaders in the crypto space.

The candidate is expected to learn existing Kadena processes and company culture, and to bring forward such values to the ecosystem as a whole.

The Kadena ecosystem will grow rapidly and dynamically in the coming years, so the candidate must be comfortable and capable in quickly capitalizing on arising opportunities and ready to take on roles and responsibilities best suited to maximize ecosystem growth. We will be looking for a candidate with a strong entrepreneurial spirit and a character that is welcoming of new challenges that will arise in a fast-paced and high-growth industry.
