We believe that blockchains need real world data to be useful* and UMA enables any verifiable truth to be recorded on-chain, trustlessly. Who is UMA? We are a team aligned with the ethos of the crypto community. We believe that because UMA’s optimistic oracle is the decentralized truth machine which can verify any statement proposed on the blockchain - we have the ability to truly expand what web3 is building. We are building a robust ecosystem. Our growing team is relatively small but incredibly mighty, and strives to be an engaging leader in the DeFi community.
Where are we headed:
- We’re building foundational infrastructure for web3 and developing high quality products to showcase this.
- Our road-map is robust, and with an iterative and continuous development philosophy, we’re always building.
- We’re a global team that values diverse perspectives and top tier talent. We’re growing internationally with the support of top tier investors and advisors.
Where do you fit in?
We’re looking for a Marketing Manager who is seeking an opportunity to strengthen, grow, and shape UMA’s mindshare. This person is passionate about DeFi and the ethos of web3, and uses that passion to motivate and inspire others to be an active part of the ecosystem. Your role will be twofold: to run the communications for the protocol to the wider Web3 space, and to rally and support the community to support you in that same mission. A piece of rallying the community is building out the DAO structure that supports the protocol.
The successful candidate will need to be sharp and pay a lot of attention to detail. You should understand UMA’s infrastructure and be able to speak about it accurately.
- User Communications: Maintain a persona for UMA that instills trust in the oracle. Educate current users and the wider addressable market about new and existing features, and work with engineers to describe complex topics in ways that can appeal to multiple audience segments.
- Co-marketing: You’ll support the growth team in cultivating our relationships to other projects by arranging and leading co-marketing campaigns. These campaigns will range from simple Twitter space events, to multi-step incentive programs that require on-chain steps by users.
- Grow Across’ audience: Strive for ambitious audience growth and engagement in the space as a whole. Not everyone will join our community, but everyone should know about us.
- Collaborate: Work closely with your product team to align on and implement growth strategies, recognizing that our product and its communications are intertwined
- Trends: To the degree that it is useful for hitting your mindshare KPIs, stay on top of current trends both in Crypto Twitter as well as in Web3 development as a whole.
