Marketing Lead - Grants Program

Marketing Lead - Grants Program

Job Category

Gitcoin is looking to hire a Marketing Lead - Grants Program. This is a full-time position that is 100% remote.

Position closed

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.
