San Francisco, CA (Remote)
This is a unique opportunity to lead the technical community for Standard Bearer, a Web3 & Society project developing technical standards to help Web3 projects cooperate, interoperate, and succeed.
In the early 1990s, standards like TCP/IP, HTTP, and SSL built the foundation for the GAFA-dominated Web2.We've seen proto-examples of similar standards in Web3:
But there's still no neutral governing body for Web3. What would it look like If we built a Web3-native W3C?
I. What is Roote?
Roote (www.roote.co) is an educational hub and startup studio accelerating the personal and collective transformation necessary for humanity's transition to the Wisdom Age.
II. Role Overview
Your north star is: Can you help create a web3-native W3C that builds standards to help Web3 succeed?
This position is extremely entrepreneurial. We’re looking for a relentlessly resourceful teammate who learns and executes quickly.
If you're interested in leading something new that will maximize your rate-of-learning, please apply!
You might jump right in to existing technical standards work, or explore the wider space of standards before diving in. Some example lines of work:
After 1 year, success looks like: you’ve talked with 100s of standards members, have helped push forward 1-3 in-process standards, have helped catalyze 1-3 new standards, and have a community of 10+ dedicated Standard Bearer members.

Note: You might want to work on ETH standards, cross-chain standards, #ReFi standards, or anything else! There's lots of standards work to be done across all the categories below
