About Filecoin Foundation:
Filecoin Foundation is an independent organization that facilitates governance of the Filecoin network, funds critical development projects, supports the growth of the Filecoin ecosystem, and advocates for Filecoin and the decentralized web. In 2017, the creators of Filecoin envisioned that an independent Filecoin Foundation would serve as the long-term governance body for the Filecoin Ecosystem. The Foundation is focused on growing an open ecosystem for decentralized storage and giving developers an open and sustainable platform to build, enhance, and monetize those services. The Foundation is similar to foundations for other open-source projects like the Apache Software Foundation, the Mozilla Foundation and the Linux Foundation. The Filecoin Foundation operates independently of Protocol Labs, the organization that designed and built the Filecoin network. As a member of Filecoin’s early-stage team, you will have the opportunity to help define their growth as the organization scales. We also support our 501(c)(3) non-profit, Filecoin Foundation for the Decentralized Web.
Your role as a member of the Filecoin Foundation legal team will involve commercial, product, grantmaking, and other legal support to the Foundation in support of the Filecoin ecosystem. In this role, you will work closely with a variety of internal and external teams and ecosystem contributors, including the Filecoin Developer Grants team, the Filecoin Foundation Social Impact team, and the broader Ecosystem Working Group as they work with a variety of Filecoin network developers, contributors, and partners on a variety of initiatives. In addition, you will work closely with the Filecoin Foundation Events and Marketing teams to support their efforts, including on events, publicity and marketing agreements, and agreements around retaining third party support for these efforts. You will draft and negotiate a variety of complex and strategic agreements spearheaded by the Filecoin Foundation executive team. You will also support internal contracting, privacy, product, regulatory/compliance, and other legal needs for the growing Foundation. You will also provide general legal support for the organization on an as-needed basis. This position is part of a positive, supportive, and growing legal team but will require a high degree of self-sufficiency, drafting and organizational skills, proactivity, and an ability to enjoy a quick-paced and busy environment.
