mission & key concepts

We believe that DAOs and Web3 organizations are the future of organizing labor and capital. But, to achieve this level of adoption, there are significant challenges that yet need to be overcome. Web3 organizations must comply with local employment, tax and securities laws globally—or face serious, real-world consequences.

WorkDAO is a wrap-around legal and HR solution that bridges existing regulatory structures and the innovation of Web3 to deliver equitable, legal & compliant employment to contributors and Web3 organizations.

WorkDAO is built by Web3-natives, for Web3-natives and aims to unlock the ecosystem to the next one hundred million contributors.

OUR MISSION

  • Provide an employment solution designed for the specific challenges of Web3 and facilitate the continued, sustainable growth of the ecosystem.
  • Design a contributor experience second-to-none. An experience that is legal, compliant, equitable, and that values the efforts of the builders and creators.
  • Work with regulatory bodies to update and redefine labor and employment regulations around the globe that support, not diminish, the fundamental ethos of Web3.

current challenges and tasks

culture & values

We are a team of extremely hard-working overachievers who are hyper-focused on redefining the existing social conventions and many convictions around how people work and collaborate, how they are compensated and how they are enabled for success.

Regardless of the role, we look for smart humans who thrive in fast-paced environments, who have a high tolerance for complexity, and who won’t stop searching for solutions until they invent them.

We look for people who have (or are intentional about getting) experience working in an early-stage startup where priorities may shift quickly and the role may go beyond what is in the job description, and who are excited about having an influence over product development and company’s growth trajectory.

We work with self-aware, kind and empathetic people who are ready to learn and willing to build. Attitude is everything.

benefits

We are a fully remote organization looking to hire the absolute best talent, regardless of the location. We take care of everyone on our team, anywhere in the world.

We offer:

  • Experience working in an early-stage startup where priorities may shift quickly and the role may go beyond what is in the job description, but you have a critical influence over product development and the company’s growth trajectory, as well as ownership & support to grow into the role you get to define.
  • Being a part of an international team on a massive mission. We currently have 40 people on our team, representing 15 nationalities, based in 11 different countries. While continuing to focus on building a more inclusive work environment internally at WorkDAO, we are proud to be on a shared mission towards building products and services that address some of the biggest barriers to participation & belonging in Web3.
  • Very competitive compensation & salary transparency for all of our open roles. We provide location-agnostic pay for everyone on our team - we reward the work you do, not the place where you are based.
  • Fully remote work environment. We have been fully remote since day 1 and we will always stay this way. We hire the world’s best talent & enable everyone to have maximum possible flexibility from where they work. Some roles might require specific timezone coverage or compliance-driven limitations on the location, we are always transparent about these in our job descriptions.
  • Leave & vacation - we have unlimited Paid Time Off (PTO) to ensure that everyone takes time off to recharge.

WorkDAO is an equal opportunity employer, and we are committed to being a diverse team that reflects a broad range of background, thought, and experience.
