About StreamingFast

StreamingFast is a cutting-edge technology firm, a core developer on The Graph, revolutionizing the way blockchain data is processed and analyzed. We specialize in integrating Firehose and Substreams (our two flagship products) into all blockchains, enabling users to process entire networks in less than 5 minutes. Our platform empowers users to compose upon other people's indexes and data models, fostering a more open and collaborative space. Launched in 2018 and originally backed by top investors, StreamingFast embarked on a journey towards becoming a fully employee-owned enterprise. This pivotal transformation was made possible through a core developer grant from The Graph in June 2021.

Alongside this work, StreamingFast is the technology power behind Boolean Labs.

Boolean Labs is a forward-thinking web3 and AI venture studio. We specialize in building new tech companies from the ground up in the realms of crypto, web3, and AI, including applications based on Large Language Models (LLMs). By pairing innovative ideas with experienced operators and providing essential capital, we're at the forefront of driving growth and scale in these cutting-edge technologies. Boolean Labs is a collaboration between Diagram Ventures, a $300M venture studio in Montreal, and StreamingFast, a group of web3 builders, investors, and core developers of The Graph protocol. Our unique position at the intersection of blockchain and AI technology sets us apart in creating transformative solutions.

In our quest to innovate, we offer exciting opportunities for talented individuals to make a significant impact in the blockchain and LLM industry. This might sound like buzzwords only, but do reach out to us nonetheless, you'll see we aren't kidding around.
