About GFX Labs & Oku

Oku is the future of trading onchain. Seeded by the Uniswap Foundation with a $1.6m grant, GFX Labs has built Oku to be the premier trading DEX trading app. Oku’s core goal is to build a Uniswap v3 interface with the features and quality user experience of a traditional exchange but with the mandate to remain onchain. Oku has features such as order books, price charts, volume charts, live trading history, limit orders, a best-in-class swap interface, user order history, Uniswap v3 analytics, multichain support, and many more features.

Oku has the underlying liquidity of Uniswap v3, a high-quality frontend akin to Binance without having to burden of onboarding users, custodying assets, and the other responsibilities of a traditional exchange. It also has the benefits of supporting any market on the underlying protocol and the ability to tap into the composability of other DeFi protocols. While most people think of crypto exchanges as Binance and Coinbase, an untapped domain exist for a DeFi option to rival the industry giants by leveraging DeFi’s complete offering. We plan to grow Oku into one of the best crypto exchanges.

Why work at GFX?

  • Any firm can pay a high salary and offer good incentives (as will we), but most can’t offer interesting, challenging, and rewarding work.
  • We have something to prove. Our team is young and hungry. We like to move fast and make things. We know when to double down and when to cut our losses. We are going to make mistakes, and we are going to build a better product because of them. We don’t micromanage or have a huge team of product managers. We want self starters who take charge and solve problems.
  • We don’t care if you went to school, what grades you got, or your age. Show us what you have built, what problems you have solved, and what skills you have.
