NFT Platform OpenSea Offers 1ETH for Recommending Top Notch Coders
Nate Chastain, OpenSea’s Head of Product, issued an appeal for assistance, noting that the popular marketplace presently employs just 37 employees while handling 98 percent of all NFT transactions. As NFT fever spreads, the world’s biggest nonfungible token platform, OpenSea, is in urgent need of new employees.
Chastain also mentioned referral incentives, saying, “Will reward 1 ETH to anybody who links us to programmers or strategists that we employ.” Currently, the company’s jobs website has a number of vacant roles ranging from business advancement directors to comprehensive developers to finance executives. On Twitter, Chastain revealed that OpenSea is eager to grow their crew:
“In response to the urgent need for personnel, we’re trying to augment our employment procedure with some guerilla hiring.”
He said that the hiring process for technical jobs includes some actual coding tasks linked to hypothetical OpenSea features, stressing, “We wouldn’t want to over-index on interview skills/algorithm work. We conduct a comprehensive evaluation of candidates.”
The appeal of OpenSea has risen in recent months as NFT craze has resurfaced, fueled mostly by CryptoPunks and Axie Infinity. According to DappRadar, OpenSea has produced $2.84 billion in trade volume in the last 30 days.
Its daily trading volume reached a historical high of $224.6 million from 111,800 trades on August 28. OpenSea is the biggest user of Ethereum network fees, as per Etherscan’s Gas Tracker. It has earned 21.6% of all transaction cost for Ethereum in the last 24 hours, making an aggregate $5.8 million, greater than Uniswap and Tether put together.
Point taken that Gmail was a weird look here. Was trying to spin up a dedicated inbox for this and handle referrals ephemerally. Trying to supplement our hiring process with some guerrilla recruiting due to the pressing need for manpower, so that’s on me. My fault.

Significantly, more than $900 million was allocated on NFTs in the previous 30 days, culminating in a historic month for August.
