Senior Product Manager – Perpetual Swaps

Full-Time Anywhere Closes: 2022-03-31

Tracer DAO is an open-source, smart contract protocol for derivatives. For decades, financial institutions have been able to manage their risk with powerful financial tools. However, the opportunity to access these powerful tools has not been one that individual citizens could easily exploit. The birth of Tracer now means that anyone, regardless of wealth, location or status can better manage their financial health from the convenience of their smartphone. Tracer’s gift to the Individual is better access to financial freedom and more meaningful ways to manage risk.

DAOs, or Decentralised Autonomous Organisations, are a new structure for coordinating people and resources. They are member-owned communities, represented by transparent rules encoded as computer programs. Governance decisions are coordinated by using tokens to grant voting rights.

Working at a DAO

After successfully interviewing with some of the core builders, you have two options; employment through Mycelium, a service provider to Tracer DAO, or contracting with the DAO. In the latter, your contract will be pushed to the DAO for perusal. The core team will help you in drafting the contract and setting your remuneration in TCR and/or stablecoins. You’ll be directly contracted by Tracer DAO and you will be remunerated directly from the Tracer DAO Growth Fund, as set in a Growth Fund Proposal. Please note that the relationship established with the DAO is not an employment contract and you will have to ensure regulatory & taxational compliance within your jurisdiction yourself.

Tracer DAO is part of the Mycelium network. Growing since 2018, Mycelium has people distributed across Australia, US, UK, Canada, the EU, Malaysia, Hong Kong and India, with a commitment to continue expanding. Mycelium incubates big ideas, providing critical nourishment and enriching the protocols to emerge independently. The relationship continues through providing centralised resources to manage legal, financial, recruitment, advisory, capital raising and research requirements.
