Trader, Liquid Discretionary

About Nascent…

Founded in 2020, Nascent exists to build, expand, and capture opportunity, in open markets and permissionless technologies. Building from a base of permanent capital, we deploy assets across a range of both liquid and long-term strategies that ensure we are among the most active users of the open financial system we are helping to build. We’ve made venture investments in 50+ early-stage teams that we believe have the potential to create substantive change, expand boundaries, and find new horizons. We are consistently on the hunt for the most competitive and curious minds exploring the edges of the crypto ecosystem and leverage our hyper flexible structure to accelerate ideas into fully deployed strategies.

The Opportunity

As a Trader on our Liquid Strategies team, you’ll be responsible for managing the day-to-day of our liquid portfolio, from identifying compelling trading opportunities to collaborating and building new proprietary trading technologies and tools. You’ll have the opportunity to identify, vet, and execute a wide variety of trading and yield farming strategies to maximize return on liquid assets. You will be responsible for deploying into both directional and delta neutral strategies, and also contribute to ongoing discussions about appropriate levels of allocation in each area.

This is an opportunity to make a direct impact on the bottom line of a crypto-native multi-strategy firm with a strong VC presence and engineering and incubation arm. This may be the right opportunity for you if you’re a driven, ambitious, highly trustworthy, math-inclined human with the desire to experiment and build in the crypto/DeFi space. This position will be fully remote work, with the opportunity for co-working and colocation as necessary.
