Title: Hire an Operations Leader
Author: Rave & PMA
Created: May 2022
Summary: The Assange DAO is a recent project which aims to complete its governance framework and build upon its potential growth. We therefore seek a professional Operations Leader to coordinate its functionality and build a comprehensive roadmap for our DAO’s future. This position would be funded from the Treasury for at least 6 or 12 months (with 1 month probation).
Motivation: The proposal to hire an Operation Leader was drawn from a recognition of ideas which have been expressed by the community on the forum and discord. In essence, the community has acknowledged several shortcomings affecting our current ability to grow – such as the complexity in creating funding for future projects, completing governance, prioritising our “ideas” for projects, synching with our internationally diverse community, marketing the Assange DAO to the media and filling all the essential work roles with strongly skilled participants.
Specification: This position would be advertised via Twitter and/or a suitable technical recruiting agency, yet to be selected. The successful individual would be industry recognised and would possess many key skills sets including prior work experience in at least one DAO at a managerial level, detailed technical knowledge of DAO frameworks, lead discussion on a wide-ranging Assange DAO roadmap, supervise finance, provide oversight regarding marketing and media communications. If necessary appear at international conferences and front the media. Confer with the Assange Family. The position would be remote. The Operations leader would be expected to organise a community call (every 15 days or monthly). Before the final selection, a snapshot would be held for the community to decide on the Operations Leader from a list of the three final candidates. A brief resume would be included in this final step.
Drawbacks: Depending on the candidate’s experience, the 6 month payment would be between US$40-50K or the 12 months payment would be between US$80-100K, with any bonus negotiated, based on end gains to Treasury and output (performance). The payment would be by the month in a currency of the successful candidate’s choice. Extra costs associated with the proposal would be those relating to recruitment– advertising, agency fees, legal etc. Currently the Assange DAO has 198ETH (approximately US$400K) in its Treasury.
