You’ll play a key role in supporting exchanges, partners, and other entities that have integrated the Stacks blockchain. You’ll also have the opportunity to define testing protocols for Stacks Foundation-owned software, work on new software we’re building to make Stacks development ever more powerful, and help the community better understand the state of the network by enabling easy access to key data.

In short, you’ll help us make the Stacks network more robust and increasingly easy for builders to innovate on.
