The Graph Foundation

Technical Project Manager, Web3


The Graph Foundation supports core contributors, enables community development, distributing grants, and leads decentralization efforts within the broader Graph ecosystem. The Foundation's mandate is to develop and grow the ecosystem to ensure the sustainability of The Graph Network.

We are looking for an experienced Technical Project Manager to drive projects across The Graph ecosystem. This person will own multiple projects and work flows between the Core Dev Teams and The Graph Foundation including, but not limited to, the Chain Integration Process (CIP), GIP process, and protocol governance. The role requires a sound understanding of web3 technology, and this person should already have a deep understanding of and (ideally) previous experience working within a web3/blockchain ecosystem.

What You’ll Be Doing

  • Coordinate the Chain Integration Process: Leading and managing teams through the Chain Integration Process (CIP). This includes clear communication, timely follow-ups, expectation management, and maintaining the CIP tracker as the source of truth for all new chain integrations. You will document the pipeline and processes and coordinate all steps with involved stakeholders (internally and externally).
  • Outreach & Community Engagement: You will own and coordinate new initiatives such as dedicated mini-hackathons for newly integrated chains. You will also coordinate joint workshops with the DevRel team and marketing activities with respective teams and hackathon managers.
  • GIP Coordination: You’ll oversee the whole GIP process, ensuring proposals are properly socialized in public, reviewed by the Technical Advisory Board, discussed during Council meetings, and voted on by the same body. This includes maintaining a GIP (Graph Improvement Proposal) database and managing the repository, coordinating the required next steps with other stakeholders like the GIP author to ensure the GIP moves through the pipeline.
  • Protocol Governance Coordination: This includes preparing Council meeting agendas, and gathering notes and action items, as well as preparing the Graph Council Proposal (GGP) with tools like Snapshot. In addition, you will also help manage related multi-sigs, deployed vesting contracts, and other related responsibilities such as documenting processes.

What We Expect

  • 5+ years of experience managing or coordinating cross-functional projects where coordination and communication with other departments, companies, organizations, etc. was part of your day-to-day job
  • Experience managing cross-functional projects involving 10+ key stakeholders and their respective teams
  • 3+ years of experience working in a technical environment and directly interfacing with technical teams
  • Experience gathering customer requirements, setting expectations with stakeholders, managing deadlines, managing deliverables, and creating and presenting proposals
  • Background in computer science or holding a Computer Science degree (bonus)
  • Experience designing technical products and working alongside engineers, product owners, product managers, etc. (bonus)
  • Previous experience in a technical role in web3 (strongly preferred)

About The Graph

The Graph is the source of data and information for the decentralized internet. As the original decentralized data marketplace that introduced and standardized subgraphs, The Graph has become web3’s method of indexing and accessing blockchain data. Since its launch in 2018, tens of thousands of developers have built subgraphs for dapps across 40+ blockchains - including Ethereum, Arbitrum, Optimism, Base, Polygon, Celo, Fantom, Gnosis, and Avalanche.

As demand for data in web3 continues to grow, The Graph enters a New Era with a more expansive vision including new data services and query languages, ensuring the decentralized protocol can serve any use case - now and into the future.
