Open source software delivers billions of dollars per year in economic value, but those contributing often aren’t properly incentivized or compensated for their work. At Gitcoin, our mission is to build and fund digital public goods. We empower communities of builders to connect and work together to create the future of the open web. As of January 2022, we have helped developers, designers, and creators of all types raise or earn >$50mm to fund their open-source ecosystems by enabling the community and institutions to fund each other with cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum or DAI.

We are looking for a User Support Lead to join GitcoinDAO Operations to support our community of contributors, stewards, and givers. If you care about Open Source Software and empowering software engineers, founders, and change agents, we want to talk to you.

We are looking for a highly skilled, self-managing, outspoken teamplayer comfortable in a frontier environment, who is ready to bring the quality of Gitcoin support to the next level.
