Building the exchange group for DeFi
Head of Community
About Shipyard Software
Over the past year, Decentralized Exchange (DEX) trade volume has grown astronomically to over $100B/month. Shipyard Software builds elegant decentralized exchanges for specific types of trades, traders, and instruments, starting with Clipper a DEX with the best prices anywhere on retail trades and tens of thousands of transactions. We empower individuals to trade in free and fair markets built just for them. Shipyard’s early backers include Polychain Capital, 0x Labs, 1inch, Quantstamp, Electric Capital, and more.
We are seeking a high-performing and creative Head of Community to build, manage, and scale our 10,000 strong community. You should be passionate about creating compelling, educational, and engaging gamified experiences that lead to deep social interactions. This is a strategic hire who will be critical to the project’s success. We seek to set the standard for best-in class community in the crypto space.
This is a remote position. We are a fully distributed organization, maintaining regular working hours in US time zones.
What you will do
Own, develop, and execute Clipper's Adventure Series; an experience between a digital scavenger hunt and a turn-based game. Each adventure consists of several Ships, Captains, and a crew of pirates from the community. The Ships race through educational and collaborative activities in the digital world to try to accomplish the quests first. 4,000 people participated in our first adventure.
Organize and execute engagement campaigns outside of the Adventure series (AMAs, Community calls, etc).
Partner with other projects for joint community campaigns.
Recruit, hire and manage ambassadors, including developing ambassador career paths.
Serve as a focal point for the community for questions, announcements, upcoming events, launches, and more. Lead moderation of online conversations happening on Discord and other community channels. Act as liaison between the business and the community (escalate feedback and ideas to the management team).
Constantly push Shipyard leadership to be community focused.
What we look for in you
Minimum 3 years of professional work experience in a high-paced work environment. Crypto experience is not necessary.
You have a high attention to detail, excellent time management, and organizational skills; ability to perform well under pressure and within tight deadlines.
You can switch seamlessly between strategy ideation to ground-level execution and have excellent content creation and data analysis capabilities.
You appreciate direct communication. You’re both an active communicator and an eager listener - because let’s face it, you can’t have one without the other. You’re cool with candid feedback and see every setback as an opportunity to grow.
You can pivot on the fly. Crypto is constantly evolving, so our priorities do, too. What you worked on last month may not be what you work on today, and that excites you. You’re not looking for a boring job.
You have a “can do” attitude. Our teams create high-quality work on quick timelines. Owning a problem doesn’t scare you, but rather empowers you to take 100% responsibility for achieving our mission.
You want to be part of a winning team. We’re stronger together, and you’re a person who embraces being pushed out of your comfort zone.
You can juggle wearing multiple hats, have high EQ, a lot of imagination, and have a strong urge to get things done.
Nice to haves
