We’re looking for a versatile, well-rounded technical writer and content strategist to help make the next version of the internet easier to build.
Web3 Stack at Protocol Labs
Web3 is the next generation of the internet that aims to create a fairer and more decentralized web. Protocol Labs aims to be at the forefront of this generational shift by researching, building, and productizing protocols to drive breakthroughs in computing and push humanity forward
As a technical content strategist, you will...
help set and steer the direction of documentation and other content for Protocol Labs during a crucial stage in its development: the on-ramp to widespread adoption of IPFS and Filecoin. This role is both tactical and strategic, and in both the short and the long term, you will be instrumental in Protocol Labs’ efforts to plan, create, organize, and continually refine content for both technical and non-technical audiences.
Day-to-day, you might update existing documentation for accuracy, draft or review documentation on new features, or create new material that makes IPFS easier to understand and use at a general level. More strategically, you might design and implement new documentation or educational resources, conduct research with the broader IPFS community, or work closely with engineering teams (including getting deeply into the code and submitting your own pull requests) to clarify fine details of our work. This is a broad-reaching role because the Protocol Labs audience includes developers and users with many perspectives, needs, and technical proficiencies. At this role's broadest level, you will ensure that the entire community has a clear picture of what Protocol Labs’ projects and products are and how to use them for their specific needs by reducing complexity through clear, concise, and accurate communication.
We’re looking for someone who has been in the technical weeds before; you either already understand blockchain or distributed systems, or have enough technical background and interest to dive in and get up to speed on this particular stack. If you enjoy diving into issues and pull requests to distill complicated concepts into sentences, structures, and diagrams people understand, this job is for you.
