MakerDAO: Sustainable Ecosystem Scaling (SES) Intern

The Core Unit & Role

For those of you who want to be part of something extraordinary - we are changing the world as you (and everyone) know it.

Maker is one of the first DAOs - Decentralized Autonomous Organizations not controlled by any single entity, institution or board of directors. Instead, an automated system (Maker Protocol) and community of Maker token (MKR) holders handle all management structures and governance.

The mission of MakerDAO is to grow and promote the use of DAI - a stable cryptocurrency used to build a new decentralized finance (DeFi) system, replacing traditional financial institutions with a global ecosystem of open, trustless financial services hosted on Ethereum blockchain and accessible to everyone, everywhere.

We started back in 2014 with the creation of Maker. Then in 2018, Maker Foundation was formed to steward the protocol through its early days until the community was ready for true decentralization. This moment has finally come - the Foundation is dissolving, being replaced by Core Units - decentralized, self-organizing and autonomous teams that will now be running the protocol.

The Sustainable Ecosystem Scaling (SES) Core Unit was created to facilitate this process and help new core units and the DAO to succeed, focusing on activities, such as:


  • Analyzing DAO needs to find gaps for new core units to emerge into

  • Mentoring core unit candidates on submitting proposals & voting process (anyone can propose any core unit, and those are voted in or out by MKR holders!)

  • Helping out with networking and communication

  • Creating new MIPs (Maker Improvement Proposals)

  • Assisting with core unit setup (recruiting, legal structures, budgeting, etc.)

  • Analyzing core units? needs and building support tools and templates

  • Anything else you can (or cannot) think about


  • Strong Communication skills

  • Interested in tech, web3 and crypto

  • Ideally coming from a maths background

We need someone to help out with all the above. A traditional company would call you an intern/ trainee/ junior/ analyst?but we are a DAO, so you will need to be a lot more autonomous than an intern. We are all collaborators who constantly need to earn our place, so we need you to take the initiative, be creative and most importantly, construct and deliver. That being said, you won?t be left alone - you?ll work directly with our Core Unit Facilitator, and so you?ll have all the support and mentorship you need. You don?t need previous experience or knowledge about blockchain, just willingness to learn (and change the world). The only hard requirement is an excellent command of both written and spoken English.

You will get a chance to work with the first DeFi application to receive meaningful use and build the first true DAO. In addition, you will:

  • Work entirely remotely with flexible time (we don?t care where you?re based)

  • Have a very high level of autonomy

  • Be able to grow within the DAO (or have a great start into other blockchain projects)

  • Get a competitive compensation

  • Be changing the world.

If this is something for you, your friends, family, friends of friends or other people you know would do great and love it, drop a note.

TL;DR: SES is looking for a polymath to take MakerDAO to the next level.

  • Strong Communication skills

  • Interested in tech, web3 and crypto
