Description

Maker is seeking a Technical Account Manager focused on driving integration of our stable coin system. If you like getting your hands dirty, working at the edge, then this is the place to be.

The Technical Account Manager is responsible for managing all technical aspects of Maker’s relationship with its partners. They’re a core component of the newly formed integration team, which will soon be releasing an extensive JavaScript library for interacting with the Dai Stablecoin System. TAMs also work closely with the business development team to on-board new partners and grow distribution of Maker’s Stablecoin System.

The Technical Account Manager is the bridge between business and technology, managing technical relationships with partners, both internal and external. They are liaison and primary point of contact between our external exchange and platform partners.
