Lots of our tasks are blocked on the limited administrative time that the volunteer board members can contribute. We're looking to hire an experienced project manager to help facilitate. See the job description below (approved by the foundation board):

The Zcash Foundation is seeking to hire a Senior Project Manager to help with the Foundation.

The Zcash Foundation is a non-profit organization, tasked with supporting privacy-preserving cryptocurrencies and public blockchains.

Responsibilities:

  • Coordinating with volunteers and board members
    The bottleneck right now is attention and cycles from the board, who are excellent and have good ideas, but are full time engineers, researchers, etc. There are also many folks who would be interested in volunteering, but lack the attention to steer and recognize them. We need someone to “push” in order to bring out the best in us.

  • Project management
    Our projects include:

    • Organization of community-building events focused on privacy-preserving cryptocurrencies
    • Grant programs and bounty program to support community-driven projects
    • Education of non-profit organizations on the use of Zcash to receive private donations
    • Community involvement, polling, and communication platforms
  • Hire and manage professional services as necessary

    • Legal and accounting in order to comply with expectations of a non-profit

    • Custody of virtual currencies received as donations

    • Communicating with the public via blog posts, website
      Zcash Foundation needs to be a thoroughly transparent organization. We’re accountable to the public, who have an interest in understanding how our donations are spent and how our decisions are made.

More details:

Expected workload

Part time, 10-20 hours per week
Potential to scale to full-time position in 6-12 months

Compensation

Depending on location and experience, compensation will be $25/hr-$40/hr.

How to apply

Send email to Andrew Miller socrates1024@gmail.com
Preference given to candidates located in US

Perhaps it would help align incentives if the manager were explicitly compensated in zcash?

@asm13243546 I would suggest applying to Andrew about the position before asking about financial custody details.

Just to clarify but at risk of over-comment,

Hire and manage professional services as necessary

is the parent directive of

Custody of virtual currencies received as donations

and I'm new to your community, so I was wondering if something public had already been established, since, if not, it becomes something of a work item for whatever PM.

Hopefully that's clear enough.

Is there an intention to hire other specialists... e.g. a marketing/publicist/media-content generator?
