Logos is a fully decentralised, privacy-preserving, and politically neutral technology stack.

Combined, they provide the technical foundation for cyber states, parallel societies, network states, or any borderless public institution based on voluntary consent

As Logos grows, there is increased focus on ensuring quality and consistency across the ecosystem. With projects at varying stages of maturity, there’s a need to ensure excellent communication and cross-team coordination as we move towards a model of self sustainability, in the long-term.

The Logos Program Owner will oversee the Logos projects (Codex, Waku, Nimbus, Nomos) and help with stewardship, guidance & cross team coordination. Acting as an advocate for the principles of decentralization, transparency, and inclusivity, while nurturing relationships and cultivating an organization committed to innovation and collaboration. Ultimately, the Logos Program Owner acts as a catalyst for positive change, empowering individuals and projects to deliver transformative decentralized technology for the betterment of society.

Key responsibilities:

  • Foster open and transparent communication across the teams, ensuring that everyone is informed and aligned on project goals and priorities.
  • Handle conflicts and disagreements within the teams constructively, promoting a culture of respect, empathy, and collaboration.

  • Foster a culture of continuous improvement by encouraging experimentation, learning from failures, and implementing best practices.
  • Embody the principles of servant leadership by prioritizing the needs of the teams, serving as a facilitator rather than a dictator, and empowering others to succeed.
