We contribute to open-source protocol development (e.g. the XRP Ledger) and innovations that accelerate the IoV.

  • Identify proactive opportunities for Ripple to participate in conversations relevant to its mission and goals
  • Work with the RippleX leadership team to prepare for media interviews and speaking engagements, and elevate their thought leadership and social media profiles
  • Maintain and build relationships with press, partners and influencers to drive positive awareness and coverage
  • Manage agency relationships


What we’re looking for:


  • 10+ years of relevant communications experience working in tech – experience in crypto and/or developer-related fields a big plus

  • Excellent at collaborating with many contributors and cross-functional partners
  • Excellent verbal and written communications skills
  • Experience working in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial, dynamic environment
  • In-house experience in digital payments and/or the cryptocurrency landscape is a big plus

What We Offer:

  • The opportunity to work for a crypto innovator with a mission to create a financially inclusive world
  • Work alongside super talented, passionate colleagues inspired by the challenge and reward in pioneering the future for how money moves
  • Competitive salary, equity and 401k (with match)
  • 100% paid medical and dental and 95% paid vision insurance for employees starting on your first day
