Job Description


At Candy Digital, we're driven by a single question: How can Web3 technology revolutionize the world of collectibles?

Our mission is to take the passion of being a devoted fan and elevate it to new heights by building a fully immersive digital storefront where fans can buy, sell, and trade their digital collectibles with unique, gamified experiences behind each engagement.
