    Who You Are

    We are seeking an economist or tokenomics expert who will build the foundation for the economic model powering an Impossible Cloud token. This role will primarily focus on defining and stress-testing the incentivization system, the supply model, the mechanisms to balance demand/supply, a dynamic unlocking scheme, and the economic model between the (initially) fiat-based cloud business structure and the token. You will contribute to the token whitepaper as well as the testing and executing of the strategy to progressively extend the use of the token to currently fiat-based ecosystem services. You will work closely with our team of product designers, marketers and developers, as well as our external partners and stakeholders. As a bonus, you value working together with us here in our Hamburg headquarters.

    What We Do

    Impossible Cloud is a B2B cloud platform focused on becoming the #1 cloud platform in Europe and beyond. Currently offering cloud object storage similar to AWS S3, we already see highly promising growth based on our channel-based GTM strategy. Building an entire suite of cloud products, we innovate the cloud sector by bridging the gap between decentralized infrastructure and mainstream B2B cloud use cases. The token will be launched with the goal of decentralizing cloud services - effectively creating a more efficient, secure, and transparent cloud computing market.

    Impossible Cloud was founded by serial entrepreneurs who have previously built a billion-euro tech company. They started Impossible Cloud, rethinking the future of the cloud with a decentralized approach to become the #1 cloud platform in Europe and beyond. This business model offers inherent advantages that you will help bring to life.
