|Nov 11, 2020|
Hi Everyone 👋
TQ Tezos is still looking for the right person to fill their open Technical Product Manager role.
In case you missed it the first time around, the original Blockchain PM post is below. Please read it for the details.
And remember, if you’re not the right fit but know someone who might be, please send this along to them. I’m offering at $1,000 referral fee to anyone who refers the candidate to me that gets hired 🙂
In case you missed it, Blockchain PM is back. The last issue was in May. I lost track of things during the height of the pandemic in NYC. You can read more about my plans for Blockchain PM here.
We’re kicking-off the re-launch with a number of job postings. This Technical Product Manager job at TQ Tezos is the first in the series.
If you don’t know them, TQ Tezos is a driving force within the Tezos community. They provided tools and other assets to make it easier to develop on Tezos. The easier it is, the more developers get attracted, who then build more apps, which then attract more users.
The person who takes this TPM job will manage creation of developer tools and digital assets, will create a roadmap in alignment with strategic vision and bring it to life.
This could be a great chance to have a direct impact on growing the Tezos community. This job is also a fantastic entry point into blockchain/crypto, for an experienced TPM. That said, crypto experience would be nice to have, yet isn’t necessary.
So please read through the job description. Reply directly to this email if you’re interested, including a short cover letter and CV.
If you’re not a fit but know someone who is. Please contact me about that too, as I’m offering a referral fee.
