Stronghold, an early-stage financial services company on a mission to improve financial access, builds infrastructure for virtual payment networks. We’ve been going deep to lay the underlying rails for modern payments and reach all customers with secure, transparent ways to move money.
Stronghold has entered a phase of hyper-growth and we are looking for a leader to run our SHx Markets team. The ideal candidate will have significant experience in capital markets and managing relationships across crypto and traditional institutional participants. This leader will be responsible for expanding SHx markets infrastructure and assisting company efforts to grow market makers, add more brokers, exchange listings, and other institutional relationships and partnerships. This leader will work closely with a team of financial professionals on the SHx Markets team, responsible for managing and expanding SHx liquidity to enhance utility and the health of the SHx ecosystem. Stronghold’s mission to provide fast, secure, and accessible financial services for all requires digital asset efficiency and a healthy crypto market, and robust liquidity is a core component of making that mission a reality.
Ideal candidates will have a deep understanding of market infrastructure, clearing, settlement, prime brokerage, and custody. This leader will have a deep understanding of market structure and the ability to apply that knowledge in the development of SHx markets. We expect this leader to have a large network and stellar reputation with traditional market participants.
We’re looking for an entrepreneurial and experienced professional who is adept at working with a globally distributed team and has the ability to think creatively through how markets need to adapt to support potentially paradigm-shifting technology.
