Who We Are

Bitfinex is renowned for innovation, building first to market products that pave the way for the future of finance. We're on a mission to create the most innovative and industry-leading digital-asset exchange.

This is a unique opportunity, a rare window of time at the tipping point of the financial evolution, and having the best team plays a pivotal role. Much like the early days of the internet, blockchain technology faces complex new challenges.

Our team is entirely remote, globally distributed to capture the best talent from around the world. So far our company has grown fast and stayed lean to secure its place as a leader in the space.

Our team is composed of individuals with an ownership mentality; no one waits to be told what to do. Each member of the team is a highly motivated self-starter that is comfortable with autonomy and believes in lifelong learning. When we’re not working, we’re dreaming about it. We place our egos aside and thrive within a culture that fosters one another from the birth of a concept to launch of a product.

At Bitfinex you have the freedom to work as you please - all that matters is execution.

Join us and help lay the foundation for a decentralized future.
