Head of Strategic Partnerships

Benchmark Protocol is a Supply Elastic Collateral and Hedging Device, Driven by the Volatility Index. The protocol operates as a rules-based utility that dynamically adjusts supply based on the CBOE volatility index (VIX) and deviations from the target metric - equal to 1 Special Drawing Rights (SDR) unit.Employing the SDR creates a larger use case rather than exposure to just one currency; this creates a larger user base and delineated exposure to markets around the world. The DeFi space needs a collateral utility that retains its efficacy and increases inherent baseline liquidity during periods of high volatility. Benchmark is built on the Ethereum blockchain. The MARK token is the native asset in the Benchmark network and provides only the utility value available to it through the Benchmark network. The supply of MARK adjusts by tracking the movement of the CBOE volatility index.


In this senior position, the Head of Strategic Partnerships will lead the efforts to grow the adoption of Benchmark's blockchain technology across the DeFi space and beyond. You will target strategic partnerships with other leading blockchain projects to create mutually beneficial relationships throughout the broader blockchain space and eventually into the traditional financial industry.
