I'm Interested Vol.4

In this issue: Closing the loop, winning 🟪, LOTS of new roles and heading to the Mile High City

Hi everyone, and welcome back to Vol. 4 of I'm Interested - our weekly newsletter to keep you updated with all things interesting re: jobs, hiring, and web3.

I’m Alec.eth 🤠 - the Chief Alec Officer of interested.fyi, a web3 hiring platform that helps teams find their next great hire through high-quality referral funnels. To learn more about the history of @interestefyi: check out our very first edition here

But TLDR; after my 5+ years of web3 recruiting - hiring in web3 still sucks. So, I'm on a mission to make hiring transparent, effective, and efficient. Don’t believe me? Create a profile as a recruiter or a candidate at interested.fyi to try us out! 

We just crossed over 1200 users on our platform! The work is just getting started; we are chugging away with new roles popping up on interested.fyi and rolling out new features.

The theme for this week is closing the loop. So many applications go into a black box, so we have shipped some fun features to complete the experience and to reduce the latency.

We also have some new frens joining the interested.fyi frames family and have just booked our tix for EthDenver 2024!

But before you dive in, make sure to join /jobs on Farcaster to stay updated daily on the latest openings, referral bounties, and best talent in the market. We have over 6.5K+ casters posting everything from new roles to seeking advice on conquering the current job market. 

So without further ado, let's dive into all the interesting things happening @ interested.fyi and /jobs this week 🤠

Closing the Loop

We are getting so many new roles every week that it's crucial we help close the loop. Our goal is to help reduce the latency  from application/referral to offer and this means making ruthless design choices to help create tighter flows between users and personas, enable multiplayer experiences and make web3 hiring fun. 

Here is what we focused on last week: 

End 2 End Scheduling is here 🎉

And what we’ve achieved is probably one of my favorite features; end to end scheduling! At the end of the day, we want to connect talent and teams as fast and securely as possible. This should close the loop quicker when talent and teams express mutual interest through our frames or at interested.fyi.

Check out our lil’ demo below. We are so excited to roll this out this week. Stay tuned for any and all updates.

Upcoming Features 👀

We will still be shipping during Denver next week. We’ve done a couple rounds of user feedback and are going to focus on rolling out the following:

  • Open bounties dashboard 

  • Direct cast Notifications - Candidates can follow our @interestedfyi bot on Farcaster and get notification on their application status  

  • We are bringing back our Salary tool

  • UX clean ups 


Also quick PSA: Hiring is ramping up and if you are tired of getting unqualified, non-vetted folks in your inbox, we can help. If you have open roles and want to launch an @interestedfyi Frame with targeted web3 distribution, DM me at alec.eth on Farcaster or @Chipagoesfinest on X. I can get you started 🙂


We won Purple Retroactive Round 💜

We are so excited to announce that @interestedfyi won 2rd place for a Purple Retroactive Round! The 24 hours leading to it has been intense and we are immensely grateful to all the amazing Purple holders that voted for us. We are even more honored to be listed amongst some of the greatest teams on Farcaster. 🙏

Purple DAO is the first DAO on FC with the goal to proliferate + expand the Farcaster protocol. We love building for the FC community but have been 100% bootstrapped so far. 

Thank you again to all the 🟪 holder and friends who spread the word and advocated for us. 1 ETH may not seem like much but for our small team, it makes a world of difference in helping us pay our infra bills, contributing to open bounties and iterating our next sprint for you.


Woohoo! We made it! 

Wow this is probably the quickest read I’ve ever produced. But as always I have a super quick TLDR for our busy bees.
