Developer Relations Lead at Commonwealth Labs
The Edgeware Network is in need of a Developer Relations Leader to onboard developers to the platform, serve as their voice to core developers of the platform, and ultimately grow a robust developer ecosystem. Commonwealth Labs frames this role as a chain-contractor opportunity, not a traditional hire, submitted as an request-for-proposal (RFP) response, and paid according to milestone or KPI achievement from the network's on-chain treasury.
We imagine that this role will be fully responsible for the strategy and execution of their proposal, but will have support from Commonwealth Labs, a core developer of the Edgeware network. We think the ideal person will serve as Edgeware's pioneering first developer. They will explore what can be done on Substrate, provide technical update communications, serve as a liason to the ecosystem, and help run the grants program. They will create and maintain a compelling Edgeware brand specific to developers.
