The role

We are looking for a Governance Secretary to help us build a lightweight, orderly, standardized, and beautifully documented governance process. Making governance transparent and accessible while maintaining standards is very hard, but it’s very important, and you will be rewarded as such. This will start of as a 8-week Grant, with the aim to then transition into a Part-Time Position (PTE) or perhaps even a Full-Time Position (FTE).

To be considered for this role, governance should be your thing. We’re looking for someone who is interested in cultivating the most beautiful, transparent, accessible DAO governance record there is. This job shouldn’t be viewed as a stepping stone, we want you to love governance through and through.
