Community Growth Specialist

Role Overview

Overview

The primary project of Heliax is Anoma, a suite of protocols and mechanisms based on distributed ledger (blockchain) technology. Anoma intends to act as a coordination mechanism, much like how people use money, speech and language to transmit information about their internal preferences for mutual benefit. It distinguishes itself by enabling the use of private cash of any fiat or digital currency, as well as bartering among any number of parties. In addition to Anoma, Heliax works on open-source projects which are part of the Anoma ecosystem, including but not limited to research in cryptographic libraries, and tools that refine the way user preferences can be expressed.

Heliax is a remote-first public goods lab which researches, develops, deploys and maintains open-source protocols and mechanisms designed to serve the everyday needs of humanity. Using this, we build vertically integrated open-source products and networks that form coherent open systems, which are capable of acting as an alternative to existing exploitative systems, such as the existing financial system. With team members located around the world, our work culture is characterized by open-allocation, where team members have a high degree of freedom and autonomy in choosing when to work, what to work on, and whom to work with.
