About Bitfinex

Bitfinex is a digital asset trading platform offering state-of-the-art services for digital currency traders and global liquidity providers.

Our Mission

Our aim is to create a free and accessible global digital economy by disrupting the current financial services industry.

Our team is entirely remote, composed of individuals with an ownership mentality; no one waits to be told what to do. Each member of the team is a highly motivated self-starter that is comfortable with autonomy and believes in lifelong learning. When we’re not working, we’re dreaming about it. We place our egos aside and thrive within a culture that fosters one another from birth of a concept to launch of a product. 

At Bitfinex you have freedom to work as you please - all that matters is execution.
