Position: Innovation Team - Analyst


Celsius is looking for an Analyst to join our growing global team of Celsians, as a core member of our newly formed Innovation team. 


The Innovation team at Celsius is charged with answering “What’s next for Celsius?”, and then working across the organization to bring those ideas to life.  From strategy to ideation, and prototyping to production, our team’s mission is to quickly bring new products to market, following the adage “The best way to start something is to start!” So if you’re someone who excels in hackathons and want to solve the security, UX, and trust challenges prevalent in crypto today -- this role is for you!

Familiarity with the crypto and DeFi ecosystems or traditional payments & banking rails will be extremely helpful, but most important is demonstrated passion to learn about this industry.
