Partnerships Manager

Full Time @Decentraland in Operations

Job Description

The Organization
At Decentraland, we are making sure the virtual world of the future is decentralized,
open like the Web, and free of control by any single company or organization. To
accomplish this, we’re building a suite of supporting tools and applications designed to
help people create 3D immersive content, games, and applications. All of this is hosted
and accessed on a fully decentralized platform. Our work touches web decentralized
apps development, game design, cryptocurrencies, 3D art, decentralized server
applications and networks and, eventually, new experiences like immersive VR. Our team is dedicated to pushing the limits of what can be done in each of these areas.
Work happens quickly at Decentraland: we iterate frequently and are always chasing
new problems to solve. Like the tools we build, our team is distributed and transparent.
Our contributors are spread around the globe – all we require is a commitment to
quality, creativity, and flexibility.
The Product
Decentraland is the world’s first fully decentralized, Ethereum blockchain-based virtual
world, built, governed, and owned by its users. It’s a truly unique ecosystem with its own
decentralized autonomous organization, currency, marketplace, and system of property
– and it’s growing fast!
New creations are added daily by creators who use proprietary
developer tools to make games, puzzles, scenes, artworks – whatever their
imaginations allow. Via their personal avatars, users attend live music events,
conferences, exhibitions, dance parties and other experiences every day of the year.
What began as a proof-of-concept for assigning ownership of digital real estate to users
of a blockchain is now an immersive, ever-expanding, and richly detailed metaverse,
where anything is possible.
