UX & Product Design
The internet is broken. In many ways it’s because of monetization. “Show me the incentives and I will show you the outcome”.
Our mission is to enable a new age of the internet – filled with trusted and quality experiences. An internet that isn’t locked into aggregator platforms. Not littered with listicles, content/affiliate farms and corrupted by untrustworthy experiences. Not stuffed with ads or locked behind expensive up-front paywalls.
Mash is building the solution with a value for value payments system for the open internet. We are well-funded – and assembling the core team. Mash was founded by Jared Nusinoff – half outdoor adventurer and half technologist. He previously founded a successful atoms based travel business, and launched + scaled products at Google during his 7+ year tenure.
Mash is being built on top of the greatest monetary network ever conceived – Bitcoin ฿ and Lightning Network ϟ. Magical internet money. You don’t need blockchain expertise, or have to be convinced on the merits of Bitcoin ฿ yet – but we know you will once you dig in. Reach out and we will share some resources.
This is an opportunity to join an early stage well-funded start-up – with the audacious goal to help fix the internet.

Working at Mash
We treat your time as the scarce asset that it is. We respect people being heads down and having the time to get into a flow. Distractions and context switching are things we work to minimize. We have meetings for specific purposes – and leverage async channels as much as possible. This helps us all.
Mash has an open and direct culture. We use data to make decisions. We believe that not making a decision is a decision – and usually not a good one. We have strong conviction – and a bias to action. We can agree to disagree and move forward – after reviewing the details. As we learn, we will re-evaluate, iterate and push forward. We are dedicated to the mission.
Mash is a remote-first company. We are doing this deliberately – to assemble the best team possible – and enable you to work where it fits best into your life. For those that prefer a team based environment, we plan to have mini-offices in cities that we have a meaningful presence in.
