You don't need to be a coder, but you should feel at home with blockchain technology, concepts, and terminology. We need someone with excellent organizational skills, and the ability to help define and implement a community engagement strategy. You will also be the 'face' for our development updates on social media, and coordinate the creation of technical content according to the features roadmap.

  • Articulating and demonstrating the value of Cardano to developers propositions
  • Identifying material to inform and educate the community about ETC Mantis

  • Generating discussions across community channels and social media
  • Presenting IO Group externally (including presenting at conferences and meetups, and in podcasts)
  • Advising, and supporting fellow community managers
  • Creating content for blogs and other social media.


Your expertise

  • A proactive, problem-solving attitude with a customer-focused mindset
  • Good empathy and emotional intelligence skills
  • Technical understanding of blockchain and open source projects
  • An understanding of blockchain technologies and development languages, and tools such as Solidity, Truffle, and MetaMask
  • Good communication skills with the ability to communicate clearly and concisely on paper or in person
  • An ability to influence and evangelize at operational and leadership levels (especially among engineering and product management) and form positive technical partnership
  • Able to work flexible hours to engage with our worldwide organization and customer base
  • Mediation skills, such as addressing disputes between community members.
