DAOLens

Product Designer


The promised world of Web3 won’t be achieved without digital communities. DAOs are a mystery box, especially when it comes to a new joiner. For a new member to get a sense on how things work at a community, how to start actively contributing or how to build an on-chain reputation based on their contributions it’s vital to handhold and guide them; or risk losing them forever.

Similarly on the DAO Admin end, a lot of data sits in silos across the stack of tools they use with no way to identify the right contributors. Neither is there a way to enable new contributors to taste how DAOs actually work.

We at DaoLens are fixing all this, one step at a time 🙂

❤️ Well Being, compensation and how we behave when no one is watching?

We care about your well-being. Along with excellent health insurance, we offer flexibility to work how you want to. We push for physical well-being and in addition to internal health sessions, you get a complimentary annual gym membership.

We assign dedicated work hours exclusively to learning & development initiatives. We respect your weekends and in terms of work hours, we believe in deliverables over anything else. We regularly host team-building sessions, off-sites and encourage discussions around mental well-being and physical well-being over everything else. Most importantly, when our chips are down, we behave the way a family would.

We admire talent and believe in rewarding people for their inputs. We understand that compensation is an important factor. Our compensation will be respectful to your situation, and the whole process will be transparent from the very minute we speak to you.

Most of us have grown up in a meritocratic culture where actions speak louder. We grew up saying yes to a lot of things outside of our comfort zone and we want to maintain the same without any compromise. When actions speak, we love to celebrate and amplify bold moves. We don’t have answers to a lot of questions and when we falter, we will acknowledge our missteps. There are no closed doors in the way we work. At the end of the day we are human beings and we will ensure that you can proudly call DaoLens your home.

🍰 What gives you brownie points?

You demonstrate learnability. The founders have spent their years building things mostly independently and at times relying on the collective hive mind of peers. If you are willing to learn and dare to say yes to things that lie out of your comfort zone, you’ll love the growth and transformation.

Do you need to know Web3 and Blockchain?

Not necessarily. At the end of the day, human beings are the same. Web3 is a new way of doing things with brilliantly put socio-economic angles. At DAOLens, as long as you are curious and intrinsically driven to learn stuff, you should be good.

🏡 Where will you work from?

We are operating out of Central Indiranagar, Bangalore. Do you have to come to the office everyday? No. It’s entirely on you. But when we sit together on a table, we move mountains. So you will be required to show up time and again. That said, we respect your preferences and would be happy to chat.

 

🌟Why we are building DAOLens?

We spoke to some 300+ founders building in Web3 before jumping into building DAOLens.

Firstly, we resonate with the hypothesis and the philosophy behind DAOs. DAOs bring a unique social economic graph to communities and in the long run every corporate, every community, every group will get structured into a DAO.

Secondly and most importantly, 75-80% of these random 300 Web3 founders that we spoke to are actively making efforts to structure their organisation as a DAO. Lastly, most of us here are SAAS nerds and out of all the emerging pillars we see in Web3, DAOLens is a way of us capitalising on whatever we have done best over the years.
