Hi guys, applying for the KYC Manager role.
TG: AndreasAltamirano
Resume sent via TG.

I believe I’m the best candidate for the job because I managed NEAR Foundation’s KYC operations for 1.25 years. I developed our compliance program from scratch and ushered in a streamlined, automated, and robust system of checks, applicable to 100% of our outbound payments. With ~1,500 KYC profiles, payments and verifications reached new speeds and overall processing was reduced by more than 75% from where they started prior to me joining the Foundation. My work kept NEAR Foundation and the NEAR ecosystem safe, and I hope to continue this path forward with the ecosystem directly. My new contributions will be to strengthen our ecosystem and will reflect the goals of the community.

Thank you for your consideration!

Hello team!
Applying for SC developer (Rust) role.

I’m Volodymyr, bringing more than 15 years of in-depth experience in full-stack development. My career spans significant roles in both startup environments and large enterprise projects, with a focus on web2 technologies such as PHP, Python, NodeJS, Angular, and React, configuring server architectures, and expertise in AWS.

Three years ago I switched to web3, and work with Solidity, Hardhat, Rust and NEAR SDK. My technical skills extends beyond coding to encompass UI/UX design, handling high-load systems and team-lead experience. Leveraging these skills, we successfully developed ZomLand, one of the first games on the NEAR blockchain, along with several smaller projects. One such project, ChatMe, achieved the distinction of winning first prize at the NEAR Hackathon in 2022.

I am excited about the possibility of bringing my diverse skill set and rich experience to your team.

I can definitely vouch for Andreas to be a good fit for this role. I’ve had the pleasure to closely work with him when it comes to devising processes for payouts from community events and campaigns and he has shown a pragmatic approach but never at the expense of cutting corners with compliance that would put any of the ecosystem stakeholders at risk.

My work kept NEAR Foundation and the NEAR ecosystem safe

This is indeed very true and should be the primary goal for whoever is taking on this responsibility for the NDC :v:

I wish to express my interest in the Project Manager position at Near Digital Collective.

My professional journey over the past eight years has been marked by a series of successful automation projects in the banking, insurance, and healthcare sectors in India and Hong Kong. This diverse experience helps me gain a deep understanding of various business operations and find automation opportunities that streamline operations. During my tenure as Product Manager of three automation-centric blockchain products, I was able to leverage the same expertise successfully in Web3.

At Nearvese Labs, where I have been leading since March 2022, my team and I have been at the forefront of product development for the Near NFT ecosystem. Our applications have reached 5000 unique wallets and B2B products supported 35+ NFT & DeFi projects. I helped execute grant-funded projects across three blockchains, managing multiple Scrum teams simultaneously. Over the last six months, I have been a core contributor to the NFT Work Group, helping set up the NFT DAO, a grassroots DAO approved by the NDC.

With a comprehensive background in managing projects in multiple domains and a significant footprint in the Web3 space with Nearverse Labs and Near NFT WG, I am confident I would be a good fit for NDC. I am excited about the opportunity to contribute to NDC.

Hi NDC Team!

I am applying for the Project Manager role, I have attached my LinkedIn and contact details below, and of course will be happy to provide a resume if needed.

My time at Aurora Labs allowed me to manage crucial security projects, like smart contract audits and penetration testing. I ensured they were executed seamlessly by meticulously planning, allocating resources, and fostering teamwork. Notably, I successfully oversaw projects with a cumulative value of up to 2 million dollars, which allowed me to refine my project management, risk assessment, and communication skills. I’m not just a project manager; I’m a dedicated problem solver with a knack for innovation.

One of my standout achievements at Aurora Labs was my role in forging and managing strategic partnerships with renowned companies in the blockchain and cybersecurity sectors. I collaborated closely with companies such as Hacken, Sigma Prime, Halborn, AuditOne, Zokyo, Cobalt, and more. These partnerships involved critical security measures, smart contract development, and other key initiatives. Through these collaborations, I gained invaluable insights into the nuances of the blockchain and cybersecurity space and developed a deep understanding of the importance of fostering strong technical partnerships.

Furthermore, I played a pivotal role in facilitating cross-departmental collaboration, working closely with HR, Legal, Engineering, Finance, and Business Development teams. Building strong relationships with external vendors and partners was an integral part of my responsibilities. My experience at Aurora Labs has given me a deep understanding of the intricacies of managing partnerships and collaboration within the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry.

In addition to my role as a Project Manager, I also had the privilege of serving as a Community Manager for Raiz Vertical Farms, a Refi project on the NEAR protocol. This experience provided me with the opportunity to establish valuable partnerships and expand my professional network. Moreover, I have held managerial positions in other industries, such as hospitality and retail, where I was responsible for staff onboarding and off-boarding processes. This diverse background has equipped me with a well-rounded skill set and a strong foundation in team and project management.

I believe that my unique combination of experiences, both in the blockchain industry and across various sectors, positions me as a strong candidate for the Project Manager role at NDC.

Thank you for considering my application. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss how my skills and experiences align with the needs of NDC in further detail.

Thank you @Sine for inviting me to the team.
The project is very inspiring: an opportunity to design and implement governance powers to the ecosystem.

However, I’m not going to take the position. My time capacity is limited, and the offer is not competitive. Moreover, with the current circumstances and decision making process in NDC (eg: willingness to change various Governance Rules, without approval from the Voting Body) I don’t find it aligned with my personal goals.

If you will need my services, I am more than happy to offer case by case consulting or advisory.

All the best, and looking forward for the upcoming NDC improvements. NDC is special and needs lot of contributions. Keep going!

PS: adding below my thoughts for the next voting system.

NDC v2 Elections Proposal

My most recent contribution is developing a spec of how I would see the next Elections and Voting Body voting system: NDC Gov v2 - HackMD
Unfortunately, it was assessed as “misaligned” (various reasons: including proof of personhood (I Am Human), including DAOs, not including other paramters like number of transactions…).

Context: December 2022 - February 2023 I was the strongest proponent to have stake weighted voting for NDC v1 elections. With @blaze and Proximity Labs we were trying to push it forward. However the community and OGs were against it, claiming that it will give too much powers to whales (NEAR distribution is very concentrated). We were thinking about many ways to limit it, but that was a year ago, where we didn’t have proof of personhood. The latest official proposal for NDC v2 Elections doesn’t include proof of personhood (eg I Am Human ), while advocating for number of transactions (which is easy to game) as one of the parameters to evaluate voting power. IMHO that will move us backwards, and open other problems.
So, in my design I propose to focus on 2 metrics: stake weight, and proof of personhood (IAH) to apply the reduction formula. It also enables DAOs to vote, with a special process for DAO verification.

Hello everyone :handshake:

Dear OPS Team, I would like to apply for the role of Project Manager and want to be part of your strong team.

My Experience ⬇️

My experience in the NEAR ecosystem started as the Project & Community Manager of the NEAR & Aurora Hunters community, where together with our team we developed and supported 4 projects in the Aurora ecosystem (Aurora Play, WORDL, 2048, Aurora Tip Bot), my role in the team was to set up operational processes between all parts of development, actively communicate with all team members to synchronise work, and create a project plan to create clear goals and objectives.


The next major phase of the project began with the creation of the Aurora Community DAO and the development of our key initiatives (Ambassador Programme, Mini-grants, Marketing Plan, Project Recruitment and Further Collaboration). At the moment I am the mini-grant consul for the AC-DAO, but I also organise all the activities and key workflows for the functioning of our DAO.


I am also the organiser of the GDAOs and Proactive People Team, where we discuss and resolve important ecosystem issues with the rest of the Congress and Congress members.
