The Firm

Paradigm is a San Francisco-based investment firm focused on frontier technologies across the globe. We make investments in companies and protocols at all stages including early-stage venture financing rounds, growth equity, and liquid token assets. Paradigm was co-founded in 2018 by Matt Huang (former Partner at Sequoia Capital) and Fred Ehrsam (co-founder of Coinbase). We are building a world-class team to support our portfolio and the ecosystem globally.

Given the technical complexity of the projects we invest in, design and engineering is incredibly important to Paradigm, and the team is tasked with the critical role of creating the operating system of the fund. From data collation to investment discovery to custom on-chain contracts, this team is in charge of building the system that directs all investment activity -- on-chain, in custody, traded, or privately held. The system is the source of truth -- building insights to the fund’s positions that inform how Paradigm invests and manages its portfolio. We’re looking for open-minded individuals to come help shape the future of frontier technologies from the inside out.
