Sales Strategist

Bitwise Asset Management, San Francisco, CA

The world’s first cryptocurrency index fund.

Duration: Full-Time

It’s not very often that a new asset class is born. But that’s exactly what we’re witnessing today with the rise of crypto.

Over just the last four years, crypto has evolved from an embryonic $50B market to a young-but-growing $1T+ market today. At Bitwise, we think it’s just getting started. In fact, we believe crypto has reached a turning point, and is headed north of $10T over the next few years. Along the way, we expect there to be risks, pitfalls, and uncertainty — much like there was during the rise of the Web, of cloud computing, and of apps. But we also expect there will be great opportunities, and millions of people wanting to participate in the potential upside.

Our goal at Bitwise is to help busy mainstream investors understand and access the opportunities emerging in the cryptocurrency asset class. We want all those who so desire to be able to come along for the ride in a secure and simple manner, and to be able to benefit from the role crypto exposure can play in pursuing their investment objectives.

Today is an exciting moment for Bitwise as a firm. We manage over $1B and are growing quickly, with the largest crypto index fund in the world (ticker: BITW), the first DeFi index fund, and a lot more coming. We focus on serving investment professionals — financial advisors, family offices, hedge funds, endowments, foundations, and others — the people entrusted to look after the capital and savings of individuals and institutions across the country. We provide education, partnership, and professionally-managed investment products tailored to this group’s needs, to help them build their view, pick their strategy, and get their exposure.

Currently, Bitwise is a close-knit team of 40+ professionals. Our backgrounds combine technology expertise with decades of experience in asset management and indexing, coming from firms including Facebook, Wealthfront, BlackRock, J.P. Morgan, and IndexIQ. We’re backed by some of the most accomplished investors in venture capital and veterans of the financial services world. We love working together, we love what we do, and we’re excited about what’s ahead.

We’re looking for an exceptional individual to join our team and take on important responsibilities to help Bitwise scale. Reporting to the Head of Distribution, the Sales Strategist will be a key contributor to the success of the entire client facing distribution team. There will be a lot to learn, a huge impact to be had, and some lifelong relationships to be built along the way.
