About Protocol Labs

Protocol Labs drives breakthroughs in computing to push humanity forward. Protocol Labs is a product-development lab, but behind the protocols and tools we build, behind the research and implementations, are passionate people, teammates and community members. We are a fully distributed company. Our team of more than 150 members works remotely and in the open to improve the internet — humanity's most important technology — as we explore new advances at the intersection of many exciting fields (crypto, networks, distributed systems) and cultures (startups, research, open source, distributed work).


Key Summary:

You will build and lead a team that creates content and resources for the Protocol Labs network. Your content will showcase groundbreaking projects and individuals across the network, educate Labbers on key web3 trends and solutions, and accelerate the growth of the entire network.

To fuel our next phase of growth, we’ve created a new team—Network Services—to provide services and capabilities that our projects and the broader ecosystem can leverage, including design, video, events, operations, content, IT, and more. 


As the Content Lead for Network Services, you will play a critical role in educating and connecting the network. You’ll identify key challenges that web3 teams face as they grow, then interview experts and conduct research to create useful guides to help solve them. You’ll also highlight teams and individuals across the network, helping network members get to know each other and collaborate more effectively. Your work will span a wide range of mediums, including articles, videos, podcasts, illustrations, and more.


As Network Services Content Lead at Protocol Labs, you will…

  • Partner with internal and external collaborators to understand their main challenges, then prioritize a roadmap of guides and resources to answer them.
  • Source and maintain a network of web3 subject matter experts and sources, then partner with them to develop clear, concise content that informs and educates network members.
  • Regularly review and highlight projects and individuals across the network, then share these findings broadly to help network members collaborate more effectively. 
  • Develop repeatable distribution channels to share your content broadly.
  • Build or hire a team to support your efforts, including editorial, creative, and technical.
  • Build processes and systems to track and manage the content pipeline and its impact, then improve it.

You may be a fit for this role if you...

  • Have excellent written communication skills in English.
  • Are able to quickly grasp complex technical concepts and make them easily understandable in text and pictures.
  • Have experience communicating across a variety of mediums (e.g., blog, documentation, website copy, etc.).
  • Pride yourself in being a self-starter, thriving even without much direction.
  • Deep experience coordinating work across teams with different goals.
  • A rigorous, process-driven work style backed by an ability to communicate effectively.
  • Handle both complexity and ambiguity well.

Bonus points:

  • Experience with open source communities / projects
  • Experience with distributed orgs
  • Additional language expertise
