New York, NY, USA
Posted on Wednesday, May 3, 2023


Archetype is a New York-based early stage crypto venture capital firm focused on accelerating the decentralized future. We back the next generation of crypto founders that will disrupt the status quo, create entirely new markets, and are maniacally dedicated to their craft. Archetype was founded in 2021 by Ash Egan, who has been leading investments in seed-stage crypto companies and protocols since 2015, having led early investments in Chainalysis (2015), Mina (2017), Bison Trails (2018), Balancer (2019), and others.

The Role

Archetype is looking for a Research Analyst who is…

1. Crypto-native: We like to play where we work. We are crypto-natives who have lived through multiple cycles and continue to be deeply embedded in the ecosystem.

2. High-conviction: We are high-conviction investors who deeply respect our founders’ time. Authenticity and speed are at the core of everything we do.

3. Collaborative: We collaborate with founders at the earliest stages (even pre-idea). Our core mission is to help builders scale from 0x to 1.

As a Research Analyst on the Archetype team, you will work closely with the team to research and analyze investment opportunities with a deep focus on technical diligence and frontier research.


  • Generating theses on emerging frontier technologies within crypto and presenting analysis to the team
  • Conducting technical diligence on new investment opportunities
  • Interfacing with researchers, founders, and builders
  • Contributing to the broad crypto ecosystem through cultivating rich networks, publishing thought leadership, or building public goods


  • Demonstrated passion and/or native understanding of crypto
  • Past working experience in crypto, either in an engineering, product, or research role
  • Ability to quickly synthesize and communicate complex technical information at both elementary and academically proficient levels
  • Low ego, high initiative–we’re a lean team and value the willingness to wear multiple hats
  • Ability to work full-time, in-person, in New York–team culture is a core value at Archetype, and the entire team works together in our SoHo office 4-5 days a week
Archetype is an equal opportunity employer.
