Work should be challenging.
Your work should challenge the status quo.
You should be defining the future, not being dependent on it.
You don’t like it safe, and prefer to swim in the deep end, while figuring things out.
You want to be an avant-garde.

If this resonates with you, then you’ll fit right in here at Propine.

Propine is re-inventing capital markets using blockchain technology. We’ve worked with Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), to become the first licensed custodian for digital assets in the world.

We are re-imagining the issuance and life cycle management of capital market products like equities, debt, structured products and funds using blockchain technology, to reduce friction and increasing value accrual for both issuers and investors.

This role requires you to have a ‘do-whatever-it-takes’ mindset and learn to operate just outside the limit of your comfort zone. If this excites you, but also makes you a bit nervous, then you might be the right fit.
