Product Manager

About us

Cere’s Decentralized Data Cloud platform allows big brands and enterprises to start establishing their own data ecosystems and first-party data strategies. Cere’s vision is to lead blockchain adoption for enterprises by using their own, unleashed customer data.

To achieve this, we built a decentralized network and customer data ecosystem to allow stakeholders to own their data with 100% control over who can use it and for what purpose in any particular context. This is opposed to traditional CRM’s, which are outdated, expensive, hard to integrate with today’s intelligent (AI) and data-driven solutions.

Demonstrating the urgent need for decentralized cloud solutions, Cere is already in the process of onboarding a number of Fortune 1000 clients and has received one Web3 Foundation grant, with another Web3 grant pending.

There are a few things we look for across all hires we make at Cere, regardless of role or team. First, we look for signals that a candidate will thrive in our fast-paced work environment, where we default to quick iterations, critical thinking and sound judgements because we play only to succeed. Second, we seek people with the desire to share their expertise and the capacity to extend their knowledge to drive innovation. Finally, we seek candidates who can commit to a greater goal; unite as a team to reach something no one could have done on their own.
