We are looking for
Community Lead

Why would you join?

We are Memri and we're solving a big problem. We are continuously generating data and information about ourselves but we have little control or access to it. Many of the services that we use are built to capture our attention rather than help us achieve our goals as individuals; all the while, they compromise our freedoms, agency and trust. We are on a mission to fix this.

We are building an open source community within the Web3 space, and we are tackling data challenges through shared creativity and collaboration. We want to create a world where technology is better aligned with people’s needs today. We build tools that empower people to create a new web - one that is private, trustworthy and free from centralized control.Among the core team, we have founders who have built and sold multiple companies to the world’s industry leaders. We are an international company with a hub in Amsterdam and a diverse, remote team based across Europe and Asia.

Our organisation

We are a values-centric, democratic organization and we are driven by creating positive impact for people and planet. We believe that our self-governed structure eliminates many of redundant managerialistic routines one sees in traditional companies. We find that our structure allows for unhindered scaling and innovation, while also attracting top talent. Our team are highly motivated because we are creating the organization we want to work in and a product that leaves a lasting positive impact.Our values apply to how we work and the philosophy of the solutions we create.
