About Messari.

Messari is the leading provider of crypto market intelligence products that help professionals navigate crypto/Web3 with confidence. We bring transparency and smarter qualitative and quantitative analytics to the industry by combining a global research database with a comprehensive suite of data visualization and asset discovery tools. We help drive smarter participation in crypto from individuals and institutions alike.
The name “Messari” came from the Franciscan monks who declared "clean books" a moral imperative during the renaissance and pushed merchants to use proper accounting methods. This led to the flourishing of investment via "trust but verify" methods and industry growth throughout Europe. That's what we aim to do. Provide participants, investors, builders, platforms, and everyone else with reliable information to better participate in the crypto ecosystem.
Our users range from some of the most prominent analysts, investors, and crypto individuals to top organizations including Coinbase, BitGo, Anchorage, 0x, Chainanalysis, Ledger, Compound, MakerDAO, and many more.

  • Develop tooling and automate processes to provide a resilient and flexible platform for other engineers.
  • Help debug and solve critical infrastructure issues across services and multiple levels of the stack.

Who You Are

  • Passionate about building and maintaining data infrastructure systems, and a love of building resiliency while growing a fleet of services.
  • Disciplined in working with Infrastructure-As-Code (IAC) platforms such as Pulumi or Terraform.
