Smart Contract Engineer

Sense

Sense builds products that allow users to hedge interest rate volatility and express views about future interest rates and protocol risk. Our main product, the Sense Protocol, will be the next piece of permissive DeFi infrastructure, enabling the creation of fixed income instruments and yield curves across the universe of yield generating activity.

Together, we’ll embark on a mission to bridge fixed income to DeFi and build a more equitable financial system.
