|I currently work at a crypto startup (https://dydx.exchange/) and we're having issues finding engineers to interview with us, specifically backend / smart contract engineers. From my perspective, I'm not sure why we can't find engineers; dYdX is one of the top decentralized exchanges in crypto and is doing ~$4B in trading volume per day with a current annualized revenue of ~$800M per year (profit margin of 75%). Offers are competitive with FAANG and we are remote friendly.|
Given the above, I'm worried that we can't find engineers because they don't want to work for a crypto startup. From your perspective, would you work at a crypto startup? If no, then what would it take to change your mind?
