Giveth - Solidity Developer
RemoteSpain, Catalunya [Cataluña], BarcelonaTech
Our Mission at Giveth
Giveth is a community focused on Building the Future of Giving using blockchain technology. Our intention is to support and reward the funding of public goods by creating open, transparent and free access to the revolutionary funding opportunities available within the Ethereum ecosystem. Our mission is to build a culture of giving that rewards and empowers those who give - to projects, to society, and to the world.
These funding mechanisms give donors the confidence needed to participate in philanthropic causes to achieve shared goals, including becoming self-sustainable while giving organizations that are caring for Public Goods the ability to cooperate with each other instead of competing for traditional funding. Giveth hopes to be the place where every organization that wants to support Public Goods is able to cooperate and coordinate.
Giveth’s Smart Contract Reputation
Giveth has a great reputation and a powerful legacy to uphold. Created in 2016 by the White Hat Group, rising like a phoenix out of the ashes of TheDAO. We created the Minime Token and Liquid Pledging, which have been adopted by many notable projects in the space. For instance, Aragon uses the Minime token for every Aragon DAO and Status used Liquid Pledging to build Assemble which they use for funding their projects https://assemble.fund/#/. In 2017, we rescued 210 million dollars from vulnerable parity multisigs at a Giveth all-hands meeting.
Who are we looking for?
We are seeking an experienced Solidity Dev that has significantly contributed to the build and launch of a project. Ideally this developer is familiar with DeFi, DAOs and yield farming. We are looking for Solidity devs of all levels. We love passionate people and call in someone excited about the Blockchain4good space who wants to help us Build the Future of Giving. Further qualifications include understanding how to fork and adapt previously audited contracts from other projects to re-purpose them for our own use.

Build the Future of Giving
Ideally, you are someone who is focused, dedicated, fluent in English, with a track record of successfully developing and launching crypto projects remotely. We are dedicated to building systems that appreciate value creation in the care work and stewardship of Public Goods which is currently under appreciated. Giveth is the critical interface that allows the legacy world to connect to the blockchain revolution that can value this important work and make it regenerative.
