Curve Labs is a team of design and development interventionists architecting distributed solutions for the future economy. We create, combine, and integrate modular Web3 open-source technologies to form organizations more than the sum of their parts.
The Lab, which launched early 2020, is a registered German limited liability company (GmbH) headquartered in Berlin. Our work currently covers three domains:
- We are a design and development agency that works with organizational web3 primitives to create blockchain-native organizations, a.k.a. “DAOs.” Weve worked with an activist coop, decentralized finance applications, a local sustainable development network, and more.
- We are social activists, creating and advocating for web3 solutions in regenerative finance, data sovereignty, and distributed systems. We aim to build holistic cyberphysical systems that simultaneously address social and ecological crises.
- We are hands-on technologists who create infrastructural web3 building blocks, such as identity and reputation modules, geospatial token standards, and inter-blockchain bridge mechanisms. We understand that engineering these primitives is crucial for Web3 adoption.
Altogether, Curve Labs is an exciting and diverse collaborative network of passionate domain experts navigating the razor edge of innovation. Join us.
We’re looking for a collaborator who has a strong understanding of Web3 and/or software team project management. This person will collaborate with our tech team on the specification and implementation of multiple Web3 applications.
As a Project Manager, you should be able to think creatively, communicate, and mobilise a distributed, tech-savvy team. You should be able to handle responsibility well, facilitating workflow between in-house resources and external collaborators while simultaneously resolving roadblocks as they emerge.
