Gitcoin is looking to hire a Gitcoin Grants Eligibility Review Analyst. This is a full-time position that is 100% remote.
Public goods, including open source software, deliver billions of dollars per year in economic value, but those contributing often aren’t properly incentivized or compensated for their work.
We built Gitcoin as a means to grow and sustain public goods. We have helped people building public goods in Web3 & beyond raise over $60M by enabling institutions and the community to fund each other with cryptocurrency. However as an organization, we can only go so far. In the next phase of our development, we’re building a decentralized protocol that will empower communities to fund their own shared needs using our quadratic funding and grants management tools.
We are looking to bring on a seasoned marketing leader to oversee our flagship grants program. Our grants rounds have steadily grown over 14 quarters to become among web3’s biggest building & funding events, and now support causes like climate solutions & crypto advocacy alongside the many blockchain projects that remain our bread and butter. We’re looking to you to build & lead a growing program that will support the next stage of growth.
- Deeply understand the Gitcoin Grants product and how it can provide value to Web3 ecosystems
- Leading up to each quarterly grants round, work with the Grants Ops team – especially the Account Managers – to understand all the rounds we’re running and the objectives / eligibility for each round for the partners and what high quality grantees would look like and inform other relevant workstreams.
- Work with each Account Manager & Cause Round Manager to establish who from partners will be reviewing their rounds and the Main Round, and partner with the Fraud Detection and Defense (FDD) to execute on those plans, with a focus on transitioning all responsibility for grant eligibility review to GrantOps in PGF
- Communicate and help partners execute grant reviews during the round
- Own and define the current process for all rounds (Main, Ecosystem and Cause rounds) and help engineer a better review process that is less manual and less reactive to attacks on the system and more proactive to building a higher barrier of defense
- Work with different teams within the organization - FDD, Product (GPC), Moonshot Collective (MC) and other groups within PGF to align on the most effective and efficient way to complete grant reviews. This will take understanding the current process from FDD, working with Product on how to implement better systems for Grants 2.0 and working with Moonshot Collective to start implementing identity staking and other innovations to simplify reviews and create GTC utility
- Help define the overall policy for grant eligibility for the platform and how it is handled long-term
- Collect data and conduct analysis of grantees to get a holistic view of who and how we are supporting and making an impact through grant giving
- Work with our team focused on grantee engagement around how to better support our grantee cohorts and continue to attract top talent to the grants program
- Existing understanding of the Ethereum ecosystem, open source software, and the public goods ethos
- Proven work experience in systems / process development
- Excellent communicator and creative on-your-feet problem-solver
- Ability to lead, coordinate across teams, and operate in an unstructured environment
- Self-starter able to work independently, meet deadlines, and fulfill expectations
- Solid organization skills including attention to detail
- Bonus: technical experience / data analytics background
Our core contributors:
- Understand the ambitions and goals of GitcoinDAO, Ethereum and web3 in general and how they function on a high level.
- Agree that a passionate, inclusive, collaborative team of missionaries always outperforms a loose group of individual mercenaries.
- Are passionate about people and the transformative potential of open source software, blockchain, and disruptive technologies common in web3.
- Get things done and when they can't get them done, communicate why and what they need to get unblocked.
- Are persistent in the face of roadblocks. They take the initiative to fix issues.
- Are comfortable jumping into an unfamiliar space and navigating uncertainty (and a little chaos).
- Are committed to goals, sometimes determined by themselves and often determined collaboratively, and flexible on tactics.
We’d ideally like to hire fulltime contributors. That said, for the right talent, we’re willing to be flexible in onboarding contributors in a part-time capacity with an eye to a more dedicated engagement. Let’s talk.
