Join our engineering team and help us build innovative and high impact web 3 experiences!
Creating stories can be fun and beautiful, and also a huge pain. We're turning the production of stories into a multiplayer game, and helping writers and aritsts — the most under-rewarded creators in history — capture more value from their creations.
We're doing this by building a decentralized IP creation engine at scale, with clear economics from the get-go.
If Spiderman were created today, a player would feed the hero token Peter Parker into our game. Stan Lee would host it and the output would be minted as an NFT. The community would own pieces of their creation, and collaborate with writers, artists, and developers to make Spiderman comics, movies, games, and tv shows. All participating in a decentralized creator economy to earn along the way.
We're looking for someone to own substantial portions of the product. You'll be working directly with the founders and a team of senior engineers to make sure our product, tech, and design goals are met. Join us on this epic journey and help us shape the creator economy of tomorrow!🚀
The brothers Rosenkrantz — Jay and Scott — have shipped VR games, built virtual influencers on Twitch, and popular entertainment across all media including film and television. During the Internet poker boom of the 2000s, Jay was one of the top online poker players in the world (he even starred on a reality television show that he co-created)!
Some of the top writers and storytellers in the world (Marvel, Star Wars) are lined up to host our games, and we're well-capitalized with funding from top entertainment and crypto funds, and gaming industry angels including the co-founder of Twitch and co-founder of Kabam. You can't build decentralized Disney in a day (and crypto is volatile!) so we're well equipped to weather any bear markets.
Help digital creators get paid what they deserve: We're turning the production of stories into a multiplayer game, and helping writers and artists — the most under-rewarded creators in history — capture more value from their work.
Build a web 3 platform, which doesn’t sacrifice premium experience for decentralization: bridging the gap between blockchain technologies and the best experiences web 2 has to offer.
Smart contract extensibility: we're making a virtual economy and we want people to make a living from our gaming platform — that's the level of impact our smart contracts and apps will have. They'll need high reliability, extensibility, and thoughtful separation of concerns. We want to grow our games and offerings over time, and we'll need to think through how we release our smart contracts so that they can last many years.
Multi-chain interoperability. If we build a game on Eth and someone wants to build on top of our work using Solana, how do we enable that?
Consumer messaging, onboarding, and security. We think entertainment and games are going to be the on ramp for many people in the world of crypto. Current onboarding experiences are rough at best and we're helping our community by building better education and UX using Discord, Discord bots, web apps, and mobile apps. We also need to help everyone stay secure by sharing continually evolving best practices.
Also: join our Discord ([https://discord.gg/heroicstory]) and play in a test game. You'll have a better sense of what we're building, and we'd love to hear your thoughts on how to improve the game.
You will be successful on our team if you:
During our YC batch, we were considered one of the most fun companies! That feeling of fun during the work week permeates the culture we are building. You can read more about our core values and team here: https://www.notion.so/heroicstory/Jobs-at-Heroic-Story-e632e23e8788404a9548acba24b7bc25
We're building decentralized Disney, and starting by creating a collaborative, community-owned worldbuilding game powered by smart contracts and NFTs. We're well-capitalized to build for the long run,with funding from top entertainment and crypto funds, and gaming industry angels including the co-founder of Twitch and co-founder of Kabam. The impact of decentralized technologies on the world will be seismic, and we're at the beginning of the next dotcom boom. Web 3 tools are in their infancy and blockchain computing faces significant challenges. We're going to solve so many interesting problems and build the most knowledgeable and talented creative community in the world. Join us on the wild ride and help pioneer how these technologies will impact the future of meaningful storytelling and entertainment.
