The DUX Core Unit is one of the teams helping MakerDAO. We focus on front-end development and UX/design. Our goal is to improve the UX for MakerDAO governance. Our current focus is developing and maintaining the governance portal and related tools and libraries (i.e. dai.js).

Our first milestone is to introduce vote delegation into the governance portal. After this we will explore new needed features by gathering feedback and information from the community, governance and other members of the DAO.

Ideally you should bring
  • 3+ years as product manager using agile methodologies

  • Contribute to high-impact projects that address some of the core needs of a decentralized protocol

  • Full-time permanent team member of the Sustainable Ecosystem Scaling core unit
  • Competitive compensation that consists of fixed monthly income plus MKR incentive plan vested over a 3-year period
The DUX Core Unit vision focuses on the five core DAO Principles

Driving Dai Adoption – The inclusion of diverse and desirable collateral types in the Maker Protocol increases the supply, attractiveness, market usage, and ultimately, the demand for the Dai stablecoin.

Scientific Governance – The diversity of the collateral assets of the Maker protocol reduce the portfolio’s risk inherent in relying heavily on a single collateral type. The natural byproduct of diversity helps maintain the stability of Dai.

Gradual Decentralization – By deploying MakerDAO capital to build, scale, we normalize the process and costs associated with onboarding collateral.

Serving The Underserved – Support the financially underserved through the use of Dai as a predictable and stable unit of account. As we term it, “to be the world’s unbiased currency”. Sensitivities to localized collateral help with inclusion and access to the global financial ecosystem.

Sustainable Finance – The makeup of the Dai collateral portfolio has a significant impact on global capital allocation. It is therefore crucial that governance of the collateral portfolio take long-term societal, environmental, and sustainability impact into account.
