Bright DAO functions as “a collection of teams self-organizing and rallying to contribute: verification helpers, anti-sybil researchers, user-experience experts, and many more.”
New teams are forming rapidly as Bright DAO grows. These teams are focused on their own immediate objectives and not always aware of everything happening within the Bright DAO ecosystem.
In other words, the DAO’s demand for coordination between these teams will only continue to increase as the ‘self-organizing’ becomes more complex with each new team that joins the DAO.
Another issue facing the DAO is that there is a tremendous amount of building and development taking place, but the story of the DAO’s growth is not being told in real time. This is a problem because it limits BrightID’s adoption potential.
We are interested in building a small team of 2-4 individuals within the DAO whose purpose is to facilitate effective communication and coordination between the teams who are busy building with their heads down, and to educate outsiders as to the great strides the DAO is making due to the efforts of these compartmentalized teams.
The objectives of the team should be
- “Infiltrate” the DAO through the individual teams; build a comprehensive understanding of the direction of the DAO as whole, as well as an understanding of the individual teams.
- Begin the process of documenting progress in a way that is accesible to people who are outside the DAO. The goal in documenting this progress is to foster adoption of BrightID and to attract more teams into the DAO.
While “infiltrating” a team to understand and document the DAO’s progress, the Facilitator team will not only seek to report on what is being built, but will look for opportunities to aid the team’s development by connecting threads of information siloed within teams.
The Faciliator team will need to be skilled in content writing, narrative development, content editing and curation, critical thinking and communication skills. Graphic design and video production are examples of good optional skills.
Forming the team
We believe it will be ineffective to hire a marketing or business development consultant to take on this mission. Even hiring an individual for a position on this team using traditional hiring methods such as ads and job postings is not likely to result in a quality hire. This team must be formed organically from within the DAO.
The team can be formed slowly as candidates arise and make themselves known. A formal proposal can be made for their compensation once they have proven their value to the DAO. If formed correctly, this team will provide infinite and almost undefinable value to the BrightID project.
