About the Company

Do more with your DAO. Āut is an extendable protocol, designed to expand decentralized communities through composable Governance modules – and power the next generation of Human Coordination. It does so by "expanding" any Legacy DAO Contract – adding native concepts such as Roles, Commitment and Interactions directly at contract level. More about it @ docs.aut.id  Join a team of Web3-native, competitive hackers, researchers and protocol designers – backed by the kinds of Consensys and Protocol Labs, and with 5+ years of individual experience in decentralized technologies. Fully remote culture, with frequent team meetings around Europe, for friendly retreats, conferences and the occasional hack :)

About the Job

We keep innovating and releasing new end-user products, we are looking for a Blockchain Tech Lead able to design, implement and maintain our protocol(s) – as well as communicating on a daily-basis with the frontend team.

The Role is executive, working directly with the Founders – and includes the possibility for a generous equity package, as well as growth within the company. 
It’s a unique opportunity to join one of the most innovative projects in the space, and create impact in the real world – contributing to the definition of the first standard for DAOs, and the modular architecture/stack for decentralized Governance.

Must have
  • Be genuinely excited about the project. 
  • Friendly, respectful, used to work in a diverse, multicultural environment. 
  • Fun to work with and with a strong inner-drive: what we are building is difficult, and there will be difficult/stressful times :) 
  • 5+ years of hands-on experience in Software Development. 
  • 3+ years of experience in Software Development Processes, Software Development Cycle, and working in larger as well as smaller teams. Previous experience as CTO / Tech Lead will be preferred, but it’s not necessary.
  • 3+ years of hands-on experience in Blockchain specifically: designing, implementing, testing and shipping complete DApps (Blockchain + Backend + Frontend Interfaces).
  • Ethereum-native dev, daily working with (at least): Solidity, Web3JS, Truffle/Hardhat, IPFS, etc. 
  • Familiar with L2s, at least one between: Polygon, Gnosis Chain, Optimism. Being familiar with other chains (i.e.: Polkadot, NEAR, Cosmos, …) is preferred, but not necessary.
  • You have vast knowledge (both theoretical and practical) in: server-side programming, data structure, CI/CD, databases, and end to end communication.
  • Understanding of crypto industry, Web3 communities, and internal dynamics, matured in other real-world blockchain projects (NFTs, DAOs, DeFi Protocols, etc.)
  • 3+ years of experience in Javascript and REST APIs.
  • Passionate about solving problems, being autonomous, taking ownership and actively proposing solutions.
  • Mastery of the English language, and ability to read, write, edit and maintain Technical Documentation. 
  • You need to care about what you / we do. A lot. This is not a Corporation, and some time we will have to run the extra mile :)

Nice to have
  • Previous experience as Founder. 
  • DevOps skills.
  • Passionate about DAOs, governance, game theory, sociology, and all that jazz.
  • Previous experience with EIP/ERC standards.
  • You’re deep into the open-source space, and have some previous (Web3) hacking experiences. 
  • If you love the occasional chess game (and you’re good at it), you may be skipping a couple of rounds of interview :D

NB: start your application with “Create your own Standard.”
Applications starting otherwise won’t be considered.

Conditions & Perks
  • Initial Contractor relationship – for full personal flexibility and ownership.
  • Executive position and unique opportunity to shape the future of human cooperation.
  • Generous equity package, in a fast-growing startup.
  • Daily challenges, and the possibility to quickly develop your skills, and constantly discover / learn new stuff.
  • Fully remote, chat-friendly environment :)
