ETHGlobal is helping grow the most valuable developer community in web3. We're a small team of individual owners focused on outcomes. We work closely with some of the best teams in the ecosystem: The Ethereum Foundation, Protocol Labs, Uniswap, Polygon, Aave + Lens, and hundreds more to create exceptional events, design curated educational content, and surface the best opportunities to the 10s of thousands of members of the ETHGlobal community.
As the usage of blockchain technology grows, the world is going to need more talented engineers, designers, and product leaders to build the future that blockchain technology is promising. We work with exactly these kinds of people every single day through the products we organize for our community. By focusing on this community, we think we can accelerate the transition to enabling more open, decentralized, and fundamentally ground-breaking systems.
If you’re curious about web3 & crypto you can have a major impact on how fellow developers learn and grow in this industry! You would be a successful candidate if you are self-motivated, have a sense of urgency, like getting things done, and are committed to learning more about engineering and the exciting world of web3.
What you’ll do
- Help Scale Web3. ETHGlobal works with hundreds of protocols and companies in the web3 ecosystem helping ensure healthy communities and exciting new products are being built on top
- Create Partnerships. You'll play a central role in chasing new leads, negotiating, helping existing relationships flourish, and providing opportunities on a bespoke partner-to-partner basis
- Form Relationships. Relationships are the backbone of all we do on the Business Development side. Whether at in-person or online events, educational content, or other products we offer, you'll be the central point of contact to support our partners' success
- Be a voice for our community and products. The partnerships team plays a unique role in bridging both of ETHGlobal's key external groups: our community of developers and our partners. As a result, you'll have a unique and important voice in advocating for the success of both parties and ensuring our products are aligned to do the same
- Work with the entire ETHGlobal team. We can't do it all — the partnerships team members are masters of working across our organization to deliver the best possible outcomes for partners.

- You know how to tell a story. Whether it's in a negotiation, a pitch, or a clarifying email, you never lose track of the narrative you’re trying to tell and who your audience is.
- You’re analytical. You look for ways to improve the status quo based on how things are changing around you and adapt quickly to new trends with new ideas and possibilities for the organization.
- You’re a self-motivated learner. You take initiative to learn the unknown & share new understanding for yourself and your peers
