FTW.DAO is looking to hire a Founding CTO
FTW is a revolutionary approach to find, fund and foster diverse founding teams with world-changing ideas at an early-stage.
The FTW.DAO is a decentralised community committed to promoting and advancing diversity and mental health among startups and venture capital. We think global and aim to make venture capital accessible to diverse talent wherever they are based, funding bold teams that are building the 2030 we want to work and live in.
Having raised first funds from global angels and family offices, we are now gathering and growing a swarm of investors, operators and thinkers who reflect the diversity of the society we live in to collectively work on new ways of making investment decisions together in an efficient, transparent and founder-friendly way.
DAOs are a new form of online organisation, similar to cooperatives. They are set to shape the future of work, uniting people, capital and culture towards important missions. Leveraging the latest developments in Web3 our venture community will be organized as a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) led by its members.
About your team:
We are currently hiring for 2-3 roles that together with the founders will form the core ‘professional’ team within the DAO. We currently have around 15 part-time contributors all over the globe and this group will grow significantly over the coming months. The role of the core team will be to take ownership of outcomes and enable people so that everyone in the DAO can contribute to our success.
