Myna Swap LLC


Myna Swap, a new online trading and vaulting platform for sports cards and other collectible hard goods, raised $6 million in its Seed funding round [1]. The company is currently developing its Myna Platform, a digital marketplace for physical goods based on the Avalanche blockchain. Collectors can use Myna Swap to convert their physical products into digital "twins." The tokenized assets can then be bought and sold without having to exchange physical items each time.


Are you a gritty, 0-1 sort of Go engineer looking for more autonomy and responsibility, someone who can deliver value in a seed-funded company where ambiguity is just part of your everyday?

Come be our first full-time hire for the backend, responsible for taking our platform to the next level. Reporting to the VP of Engineering, we need an experienced engineer who can build for scale; meaning application development as well as the creation of infrastructure.

Principals only; no agencies of any nature.
