Matter Labs

At Matter Labs, we are building zkSync: a blockchain scaling solution secured purely by cutting-edge cryptography. Our mission is to scale Ethereum to billions of users, fully preserving its most valuable properties — permissionlessness, trustlessness, and resilience, — in order to protect and enhance global economic freedom.
We hold a strong opinion that zero-knowledge proofs (ZKP) are the only technology today that can achieve this goal.
We are also proud to be the pioneer of the ZKP tech on Ethereum, and one of the few companies in the world with strong expertise in this field. Our contributions over the last 3 years include the first ZK rollup ever built, the first implementation of recursive ZK proofs on Ethereum, and the world’s first practical FPGA-based ZKP accelerator. Most recently, we launched a zkEVM testnet, making zkSync the first ZK rollup capable of executing native Ethereum smart contracts.
Across all hires we make at Matter Labs, regardless of role or team, we look for signals that a candidate will thrive in a culture like ours, where we value freedom, ownership mindset, and meritocracy.
The Role
The zkDAO Marketing Lead will play a critical role in building out the marketing, community, and communications function for zkDAO, a decentralized organization with $200m in capital dedicated to expanding the zkSync ecosystem through active funding across numerous verticals. This leader will head up strategy and execution to grow the DAO’s awareness, engage the community, and handle necessary communications to create a thriving organization where developers, researchers, and educators can access the capital they require to solve big problems.
We’re looking for a leader who can win the hearts and minds of developer and crypto communities by delivering value through innovative programs, events, hackathons, community leadership, and comms.

  • Onboarding and managing vendors, agencies, and community managers
  • Analyzing campaigns and providing regular reports and actionable ways to improve the DAO’s marketing, community, and communications
  • Helping organize events and hackathons with Matter Labs
  • Ensuring consistent brand alignment with zkSync
  • Managing the marketing and community operations budget; creating proposals when funding for certain initiatives is required

  • Skilled in evaluating creative assets and providing constructive feedback and direction
  • Proven track record in developing marketing plans and optimizing marketing investment
