Description

At River, we are committed to building financial solutions that power a transparent and efficient global economic system made possible by Bitcoin. To that end, we have built leading Bitcoin Lightning, brokerage, custody, and mining products to keep our clients ahead of the curve. We aim to bring premier Bitcoin banking solutions that offer a full array of financial services to our clients.

In addition to River’s consumer-facing business, we launched a payments software business in late 2022 that utilizes River’s Lightning infrastructure and expertise. We are looking for a Lightning Software Account Executive to drive the development and execution of River’s Lightning software sales playbook. You will be the first sales hire for this line of business, reporting directly to River’s COO and working closely with the CEO. The ideal candidate is entrepreneurial, forward-thinking, and excited to build the future of Bitcoin payments and financial services.
