About the Ethereum Foundation

The Ethereum Foundation (EF) is a global non-profit organization dedicated to supporting Ethereum and related technologies. Our mission is to do what is best for Ethereum’s long-term success. Our role is to allocate resources to critical projects, to be a valued voice within the Ethereum ecosystem, and to advocate for Ethereum to the outside world.

Overview

The EF is looking to hire an ecosystem research intern. You will primarily work with Josh Stark and others to better understand the Ethereum ecosystem, and create work products based on that research.

You will cover a wide range of interdisciplinary topics related to the Ethereum ecosystem. This is not a narrow financial analyst role. You will research topics ranging from specific application areas on Ethereum, regional communities, technical progress on key issues, the impact of upcoming technologies within the crypto space, and more. This role will also involve assisting in drafting reports, blog posts, or other materials.

This is a great role for someone looking to break into the crypto industry, and get paid to follow an existing passion for reading & writing about Ethereum.

About you

  • You have an interdisciplinary skillset. You’re able to grok some ethresear.ch posts (even if you can’t read the code), and you can make sense of a blog post about macroeconomic policy or political philosophy.
  • You can learn new fields that interest you. You’re good at learning the basics, asking dumb questions, and finding the material you need to get up to speed on something important.
  • You’re independently minded and self motivated. You’re able to work without much oversight, going deep on a topic, until you’ve built a sufficient understanding.
  • You’re a clear writer & communicator. You’re able to share what you’ve learned with others, increasing the leverage of your research by striving to help others see things as you do.
  • You’re knowledgeable about the Ethereum ecosystem. Specifically, you know enough to know how much you don’t know.

Contract details

  • 3-6 month paid internship
  • Open to both full-time and part-time candidates
  • We’re flexible. If you’re interested in this role but not sure about how it fits into your life, apply anyway.
  • Fully remote

How to apply

  • Submit a CV
  • Attach an answer to the following question: What is the most important thing that happened in Ethereum in 2021, and why? Your answer cannot be anything directly related to NFTs or DeFi.
  • Writing samples are helpful but not required.
