What We’re Building
We’re an experienced team (ex-Square, DoorDash & Instagram) that is building a platform to power creator fan communities using NFTs that unlock membership, exclusive benefits, and rewards. Because NFTs are ownable digital assets, fans can be rewarded for their loyalty and fandom in an entirely new way.
Diversity & Inclusion
We’re an equal opportunity employer and we value a diverse team – people who identify as women, non-binary or gender non-conforming, LGBTQIA+, American Indian or Native Alaskan, Black or African American, Hispanic or Latinx, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, differently-abled, caretakers and parents, and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply.
In keeping with our beliefs and goals, no employee or applicant will face discrimination or harassment based on: race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, age, gender, marital/domestic partner status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability status, or veteran status.
Above and beyond discrimination and harassment based on “protected categories,” we also strive to prevent other exclusionary behavior (e.g., stereotyping) from ever gaining a foothold in our company.
Whether blatant or hidden, barriers to success have no place at Highlight.
