NEAR is a sharded, developer-friendly, proof-of-stake public blockchain, built by a world-class team that has built some of the world’s only sharded databases at scale.
We are seeking a talented and highly motivated Executive Assistant to help our executive team as NEAR scales in hypergrowth. You’ll provide strategic and operational support to various leaders at NEAR in the Shanghai area.
You’ll be a strategic partner who holds everything together – from calendaring and travel, to creating/reporting processes and team support. You will be a wearer of many hats who strives to work in an ambiguous but rewarding environment. We are looking for an EA who has a natural passion for learning and optimization, enjoys taking on new tasks and projects, and who excels at being mindful of strong communication and details in an energetic, fast-paced and developer-centric environment.
Since NEAR is a blockchain company, familiarity with the crypto and blockchain ecosystem is ideal but not required. You should be familiar with working in the technology industry and its unique challenges, especially those in a startup experiencing hypergrowth. Due to the nature of our highly distributed team, you will need to be comfortable operating across many time zones, geographies and languages.

About NEAR and the NEAR Collective
NEAR’s mission is to enable community-driven innovation to benefit people around the world. The NEAR platform provides a decentralized application platform that is secure enough to manage high value assets like money or identity and performant enough to make them useful for everyday people, putting the power of Open Finance and the Open Web in their hands.
The NEAR platform, NEAR Protocol, and associated tooling are being built by the NEAR Collective, a collection of the best engineers in the world who work across teams, companies and countries similar to other large scale open source projects. Core contributors include a couple of 2-time ICPC world champions, 2 gold medalists, a Latin American champion and multiple other competitive programming finalists.
Working at NEAR
Roles are posted to this portal on behalf of the companies that make up the NEAR Collective and are typically located anywhere in the world because most of the companies are fully remote. Some hubs are located in Switzerland, Germany, Russia, the US and China. Regardless of where you work, this is a high performance culture that values ownership, execution and professionalism but pairs it with curiosity and experimentation. The vision is big but the right team is behind it.
