LocalBitcoins.com is a marketplace for Bitcoin, everyone’s favourite cryptocurrency. The site is one of the most popular person-to-person bitcoin exchange places in the world, now growing at the pace of 1000 new users a day. As Bitcoin is a currency without borders, so is our site: the users come from over 200 different countries.
LocalBitcoins Oy, the parent company of the site, has been cash-flow positive since January 2013. Despite the volatility of Bitcoin itself, the LocalBitcoins business is stable, as when the Bitcoin price goes down, customers tend to trade more.
Currently we have 30 people working full-time on the site, and several freelancers/contractors. We are looking to grow explosively. Our goal is to bring Bitcoin everywhere in the world. We need the most ambitious and brightest minds to achieve this. International background is a big plus as all of our customers are and will be outside Finland.
Our office is located at Ruoholahti area, Helsinki, named as one of the hottest startup cities by Wired Magazine.
As we are a startup, our positions are more directional than specific. Flexibility, ability to step out from your comfort zone and open-mindedness is a good attitude for this job. Also interest in Bitcoin and similar crypto-tech is definitely a plus!
