About the role


Hey, this is Ben & I run design here at Titan 👋. 

I want you to know I’ve written every word here personally not only because I think this a massive opportunity to build an industry-defining product, but because I want to work with people that value clarity, transparency, and ambition.

What do I mean? Well, the app you see today is just a glimpse of what I know we’ll create together. The bones are strong and the value is clear… but it’s a C+ when it comes to vision. What I’m building now is the foundation of our rockstar team to blast us out of this world.

You game? Read on.

We recently raised a $58M Series B round) led by venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, bringing our total funding to $75M.
