Community Lead

Who are we at DAppNode?

DAppNode is a FOSS (Free Open Source Software) project with the mission to create a decentralized infrastructure layer for the new internet. The goal is to provide anyone with the ability to run decentralized crypto-network nodes and participate directly in them without the need for 3rd parties. And we mean anyone, regardless of their technical level. On the other side, this helps the networks become more resilient and decentralized.

In the past year we’ve grown spectacularly in usage by becoming the easiest way to run an Eth2 validator and decentralize validation power out of staking pools and exchanges. Our focus in the next year is to build on our product and our experience with PoS in Eth2 to expand horizontally and help decentralize other networks, and vertically to offer more flexible options for Eth2 staking.

Our goal is to use technologies like Secret Shared Validators (Shamir Secret Sharing), and leverage the economy of our $NODE token to create web3-native products that strengthen the resilience and decentralization of the network while providing value to each of our Node Runners.

We are a 100% remote team which allows you to work from anywhere in the world, while meeting every year in person to create meaningful connections.
To align with our initiatives, we are looking for intrinsically motivated, love and understand the web3 space and are whole-heartedly passionate about our mission to transform decentralized ecosystem infrastructure.

We are now looking for you, a C-whiz: C for Comms and C for Community, with previous experience working in blockchain and cryptocurrency technology or participating in DAOs / Decentralized ecosystems.
