About Paragraph

Paragraph is a web3-native publishing & newsletter platform that provides creators with new and innovative ways of building communities, connecting with their audience, and monetizing their content. We're supercharging newsletters & publishing with web3-native features: permanent & uncensorable storage; on-chain, portable social graphs; crypto payment rails; token-gated communities; wallet-to-wallet newsletters; and more.

We're helping thousands of creators - from DAOs, to NFT communities, to traditional writers - and we're backed by some of the top investors in crypto.

How we work

We're remote-first.

Remote work is the future, so we're committed to doing it right - and right from the start. The freedom to work remotely allows for deeper and more meaningful work, so we're a distributed team that places an emphasis on excellent asynchronous communication to collaborate. We're open to workers in North American timezones for now, but hope to support global work in the future.

We're product-focused and customer-obsessed.

We're building products that are simple, beautiful, and useful. We care deeply about the quality of our work - down to the last pixel - and we don't cut corners or make sacrifies to ship. We're passionate about building great software.

We firmly believe in good work-life balance.

People work their best when they're rested, happy, and fulfilled. Work on your own schedule with flexible work hours, and take as much vacation as you need to fully disconnect and recharge (Colin regularly takes 4+ weeks vacation a year).

We offer competitive compensation & benefits.

We're early stage, but we believe good work should be rewarded. You'll have a 401k, medical & dental benefits, generous equity grants, competitive salary, and unlimited (truly unlimited) vacation.

About the job

We're looking for a generalist COO to join our team and work directly alongside our founder, Colin.

Since we're a very small team (you'd be the first hire!), you'd likely wear many hats. Ultimately, we're looking for someone that can help us prove our hypotheses around how web3 can revolutionize publishing.

You'll be talking to users constantly, and finding out what their biggest painpoints are (and how we can address them). You'd have full ownership over our growth strategies - you'd test out different customer acquisiton channels and see what works and what doesn't. You'd form partnerships with writers & DAOs, and ensure we're providing the most value we can to the right audience.

Must haves:

  • Experience with publishing, newsletters, journalism, or any type of written content. You understand the needs & painpoints of writers.
  • Ability to work independently, in fast-paced environments with changing priorities.
  • A good understanding of various growth & customer acquisiton strategies.
  • Primarily live between GMT-8 and GMT-5.

Nice-to-haves:

  • Experience working in web3 and crypto
  • A strong social media presence: you've been around Twitter and Discord for a while, and know how to manage communities
  • You've worked in seed-stage pre-product-market-fit startups before and thrive in ambiguous & early-stage environments

Bonus points:

  • You've been a previous founder
  • You're a published author
