Full job description
Makerdao requires a consistent and well-run governance process managed by elected facilitators in order to remain stable and secure as it grows.
The strength of the makerdao governance system relates directly to the participation levels in both on-chain and off-chain governanceThe expression of will by individuals interested in the protocol’s success can only be as well-rounded and well-defined as the number of governance participantsSimilarly, a decision is only as durable as the consensus surrounding itFor these reasons, it is govalpha`s mandate to strive for participation and consensus which are crucial for the preservation and improvement of governance within makerdao.
Govalpha should aim to promote and increase engagement by stakeholders in all aspects of the governance processes.
Govalpha should ensure that new members of maker governance have access to the resources necessary to bring them up to speed on the maker protocol.
Govalpha must encourage maker governance to explore the least objectionable option(s) in governance decisions rather than treating decision-making as a competition where a subset must end up disappointed in the outcome.
Govalpha must encourage maker governance to come together on divisive topics and to prevent political polarization and demagoguery.
