Who we are

Staking Facilities has pioneered the staking space ever since its’ inception in 2017 - one of the first validator companies in Europe.

While we are a web3 infrastructure and service provider, i.e. our main business is operating highly secure, bare metal hardware for selective public blockchains and web3 protocols to run on, we go beyond the simple operation and maintenance of top-notch hardware:

  • We provide holders of Proof-of-Stake tokens with a smooth and seamless, non-custodial staking experience through education and customer support.
  • We fund and support early web3 startups through our own venture arm, Staking Facilities Ventures.
  • We build tools that help with the proliferation of web3 technologies, e.g. Solana Beach.

Our custom-built hardware is co-located in certified, tier 3+ data centers, which use a clean energy mix. Since the data centers are within reach of our company headquarters here in Munich, we are always able to physically access our servers at all times.

We are a diverse, fun-loving, international team of doers, tinkerers, and technology enthusiasts with an edge for the next evolution of the internet and a diverse set of backgrounds. As an independent, bootstrapped company, we have the freedom to call our own shots and, first-and-foremost, put our team at the heart of our company and everything we do.

While we are based in Munich, we are a remote-first company and our team spreads across the whole globe. As such, we regularly meet up at conferences or company retreats in order to closely knit the team together.

To double down on our people first approach, we are looking for support in our HR/operations team and you might just be the one we’re looking for!
