Acala’s mission is to build and nurture the autonomous financial infrastructure of the decentralized web. Delivering on this mission will bring more financial accessibility, opportunity, and prosperity to everyone on the planet through a new, open financial system.
Acala buids the liquidity layer for web3 finance that is captive and sustainable. It aims to provide infrastructures for HyFi (DeFi+CeFi) solutions with crypto and real-world assets. Acala offers a Universal Asset Hub that hosts multichain liquid staking token (LST) protocols (such as liquid DOT - LDOT), an AMM decentralized exchange, and an app platform that is EVM-compatible and highly customizable (based on Substrate). Acala is secured by Polkadot, and is the liquidity gateway of Polkadot parachains and L1/L2 blockchains.
We have secured our support from eminent backers like Polychain, Coinbase Venture, Pantera, DCG and many more.
About the role
As the Community & Social Media Manager at Acala your goal will be to keep our userbase updated and aware of what our growing suite of DeFi products can offer them, and to strike the balance between asking and telling them what we’re going to building next.
This is a dual role, with both Community & Social Media components, best suited to a Marketing graduate who has experienced the commercial side of web-based software products. The role will benefit from an in-depth knowledge of DeFi application practices, and the common pitfalls they succumb to, but you don’t need to be a Crypto expert.
You’ll be talking directly to our userbase on a daily basis and organising online events and product launches, and without basic DeFi user knowledge then you may find the learning curve quite steep -but you won’t be alone. You’ll be brainstorming marketing possibilities with an experienced team, as well as the Acala founders themselves, distributed throughout China and New Zealand.
Our ideal candidate will be a DeFi user and an experienced Community or Social Media Manager, who has already spent some time working with blockchain applications, whether commercially successful or not. But at a minimum we need a marketing-oriented individual with a mature interest in decentralised finance as the future, and the general concept behind BTC/ETC applications and their use cases.
