Please add questions, suggestions, etc here - especially if you have ideas on the spec itself, or recommendations of people that could be a good fit.


Hiring update on this role!

We’ve been busy with @guylouis taking a first look at applications received. We’re now onto a shortlist of ~10 people for a first interview with People Ops - we’re getting those interviews scheduled in this week between me and @rajanie. First interviews cover general content like remote work, Status values, the candidate’s work & crypto experience, and a bit more about how the day to day at Status looks.

@guylouis and @jonathan - for any candidates we think are a good fit for advancing beyond first interview, we’ll get those scheduled in with you two in parallel. We’ll check your calendars, please DM if you have any availability exceptions.

Cheers! C

Hi All,

I’m applying for this role through a recruiter and have been doing some research and due diligence.

I really love the ethos and I share the values you have built for Status; I’m intrigued by the ‘flattened’ org structure, I’m excited to see how liquid democracy and swarm mindset actually function within a business setting. Lot’s to discuss!

In the way of proactive contribution, I’ve put together a brief growth audit of Keycard that I hope will prove a valuable resource for the team (with or without my core contributor employment).

Happy for any feedback or input and looking forward to speaking with some of you!

Hey Morgan - welcome to the wonderful world of Status - thanks for your interest!

Adding a few folks that I know will be interested to review your work: @carl @guylouis @jonathan

Look forward to getting to know you.

Just wanted to check what your timelines here are? I wasn’t actually looking for a new challenge but somehow found your job offer and remembered about Status.

I have previously been in the blockchain field for over 6 years and took on a “normal startup project” recently. But it’s just not the same when centralised :frowning:

Also I’ve been trying to test the Status app, but it just says - Oops, this is not available any more.

Anyway, this is me, happy to chat - Liina Laas - Member of the Board of Advisors - ESNA - Europe Startup Nations Alliance | LinkedIn

Hey @liinalaasb - welcome to Status! Nice to see you here, and thanks for applying :slight_smile:

Just wanted to check what your timelines here are?

We’d love to find someone for this role before the end of year holidays, and are still actively accepting applications and working our way through the different stages of interview.

All candidates should hear from us one way or another within the next couple of weeks, and we’ll certainly let people know if there’s any delay to that.

Also I’ve been trying to test the Status app, but it just says - Oops, this is not available any more.
Sorry to hear that! Feel free to email me with details and we can take a look: [email protected].

Cheers! Ceri

Thank you very much for the update, Ceri!

I will email you shortly, maybe it is user error by me but so far not able to get the app :smiley:

Quick update - we’re still hiring for this role. Not a huge amount to report other than we have candidates in all parts of the hiring process, still very much going through the interview phases with People Ops, Jonny, Guy-Louis, and Carl.

Thank you to all the candidates currently going through and that have been through the process so far with us, we really appreciate your time and don’t take it for granted.

In terms of what we’re looking for from the role - over time we’re leaning towards a more senior & technical profile that can set and drive the marketing strategy for the product, as well as someone that’s comfortable on the execution as they will be also handling the day-to-day. The mix of crypto experience + technical + product marketing skills + leadership is a huge ask - which is why this search is progressing a bit slower than we would’ve liked.

Thanks all for your patience, will keep working on this.

Update - after much deliberation, we made the decision not to prioritise this hire for the time being. The combination of skills we were looking for were turning out to be not the most straightforward to hire for, and though we had a number of great candidates apply, the search was diverting recruiting time and attention away from other marketing roles with a more urgent need to fill.

In terms of positioning for Keycard, there’s been some change in the thinking since we first went live with the job post. Check out this user journey sketch from @jarrad for most recent info on how Keycard fits into the Status flow.

Sorry to everyone for a disappointing end to this hiring effort. Shout if any questions.
