[Jobs Roundup] These roles may help you land a role at Web3 solutions startup Polygon

Fresh from its $450M fundraise, Polygon is looking to consolidate its lead in the race to scale Ethereum, obviating the need for alternative blockchains and paving the way for mass adoption of Web3 applications.

Earlier this week, Ethereum scaling project Polygon (previously Matic Network) announced it had raised $450 million in its first major VC financing round led by Sequoia Capital India, with participation from Tiger Global, SoftBank, Galaxy Digital, Republic Capital, Makers Fund, Alameda Research, Alan Howard, Alexis Ohanian, Steadview Capital, Elevation Capital, Animoca Brands, Spartan Fund, Dragonfly Capital, Variant Fund, and Kevin O’Leary.
