YFDAI Welcomes New Additions to the Team

YFDAI continues to hire talented professionals necessary to keep up with its DeFi platform expansion

Dear YFDAI Community,

We’ve seen a flurry of hiring at YFDAI over these past 6 weeks with the additions of John Burmeister (LaunchPad Success Manager), Murai Ryo (Full Stack Developer), Hargobind Gupta (Lead Solidity Developer), Jeetesh Gajjar (Technical Project Manager), and Deep Yadav (Lead Backend Developer).

Now, as the community turns its focus to SSGT (given the recent launch of the token), along with the expansion of our governance system (now that DAO1 has launched), the move of our SafeSwap DEX to Matic, and more, we’ve brought even more great talent to assist with YFDAI’s platform expansion and growth prospects. Great projects require great people at their core to succeed, especially as a young start-up that has carved out its niche in being the most trusted and secure DeFi platform in the industry.

To ensure that we are always moving in unison together to achieve the greater YFDAI vision, it is important to expand the team with great people that are not only the right fit from an experience and expertise perspective, but also from a business culture perspective as well. We are more confident than ever that we have the pieces in place to deliver on our mission of democratizing finance and serving as a catalyst for mass adoption of the next generation of financial products.


Paolo Petrolini - Product Manager

Paolo is an entrepreneur and product leader with over 15 years of hands-on experience in product management and operations excellence. Prior to starting his entrepreneurial journey, he worked at Google for over a decade, where he served as the Head of Trust & Safety in Central Europe, leading an international team of product specialists, data scientists, security engineers and anti-abuse analysts.

Paolo is the co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Salarify, the first earned wage access solution in continental Europe. He is also a trusted Advisor to startups and enterprises alike, providing them with hands-on support in setting the right product strategy and operations excellence framework to fit their business growth expectations.

Paolo has been providing YFDAI with tremendous value since he started working with us. He has the important position of working alongside the YFDAI senior team to define and re-define core product development processes while efficiently project managing the slate of new services and existing product enhancements on our roadmap. His leadership experience from his time at Google and as a mentor across many early-stage tech startups is priceless.


Business Operations

Evan Smith - Partnerships & Exchange Manager

Some of his career highlights include: Research and launch of tokenized NRG called NRGE, raising over $3 million dollars in his first year as a market maker, and listing projects on top exchanges such as HitBTC, Kucoin, and Bithumb, among many DEXs and CEXs.

Evan believes blockchain and specifically DeFi is the future of money as we know it and is keen to play a role in the growth of the ecosystem. We’re excited to bring Evan on board as he will serve as a tremendous asset in growing YFDAI through a combination of his expertise in new exchange listings, internal market making, and business expansion through tier 1 partnerships.
