Company Description

What we're doing at BRD 

BRD is a team made up of innovators, self-starters, independent thinkers, and builders that are at the heart of a financial revolution. We go against the grain to change the world. We’re enabling true financial sovereignty to people around the globe by building out the infrastructure and consumer applications surrounding Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and other digital assets. BRD is a completely non-custodial wallet, making it the most reliable and secure way to hold funds without the need for a bank or third party. Your money is your money.

If you’re a disruptor with a relentless attitude to make a difference, then BRD may be your next home. As a financial infrastructure company, our mission is unlikely to ever be complete. We continually strive to bring the power of our apps to new regions of the world, some of which have never had wide access to banking functionality. To date, BRD supports over 3 million users across 171 countries, but this is just the beginning. 


Until BRD, non-custodial applications have been clunky and difficult to use, causing people to give up and use custodial options instead. The main reason for our success is because we combine the intuitiveness that custodial options offer, with the security of a non-custodial, completely peer-to-peer system. We rigorously design, redesign, test, and experiment to ensure our customers have a positive, safe experience.

BRD has taken the consumer market by storm, and now we are also taking the enterprise world by its horns with the release of a new product, Blockset. Blockset essentially takes the infrastructure built over the years with BRD and productizes it into a powerful B2B solution acting as a bridge for banks and large financial institutions to enter the crypto world.

 
Lastly, we embrace a decentralized culture. We put high amounts of trust with whoever works with us. That is why all employees of BRD get unlimited vacation days, sick days, and have the option of working completely remotely, although we do have offices globally in San Jose, Bend OR, Chicago, and Tokyo. We host multiple in-person meetups throughout the year that are not only lots of fun, but also a great way to strategize our next steps, get closer as a team, and celebrate our accomplishments.

    An Insider's view of BRD

    How does your team reward individual success?

    We work hard to make the team feel like their hard work is noticed. We give out praise in our weekly all hands meetings, cash bonuses, and even some BRD tokens when the team goes above and beyond -which seems to be all the time these days!

    Adam

    VP of Engineering

    What does your typical day look like?

    We are big believers in individual responsibility, so my day may look different than your day. We have a daily standup, and a few additional standing meetings throughout the week. Other than that - we are all responsible for getting stuff done and helping our team mates. The breakdown of how you do that, is up to you.

    We are building the world's first decentralized bank. It requires a massive transformational shift in the way people use, save, send, and receive value.

    What projects are you most excited about?

    I am very excited about BRD App adding full ERC20 support! This will provide millions of people around the world with a simple and secure place store nearly all cryptocurrencies.
