Backend Engineer (Product)

Mirror



At Mirror, our mission is to use web3 technology in order to reimagine the ways people publish, read and share writing online. We are a small, passionate team with a breadth of experience that has been building in web3 for years. Together, we aspire to build products that are beautiful and intuitive, without compromising on user sovereignty or decentralization.

The Company

Mirror is a web3-native publishing platform that powers a new writing ecosystem. Writers on Mirror donโ€™t just publish, they build community and fund their writing by minting their work as Writing NFTs โ€” collectible, minted versions of posts on Mirror. Readers on Mirror donโ€™t just consume content, they collect it and discover new writers in each otherโ€™s collections. All of this happens within a tightly integrated web3 product that is centered around an intuitive editor that allows writers to incorporate smart contract-based economic blocks.

We've raised close to $14 million from investors that include a16z Crypto, Union Square Ventures, and Variant.
