Published at 2021-04-09 - Viewed: 1513 times - PktPal (Worldwide/Remote)

PKT is a blockchain project focused on making internet access more accessible, low-cost, and decentralized, it is a philosophical continuation of the cjdns project (GPLv3+, started 2011) for making networks more secure and easier to setup.

PKT ( https://pkt.cash ) is a no-premine, proof-of-work “real deal” coin based on a new bandwidth-hard proof of work algorithm called PacketCrypt. The objective of PacketCrypt is to incentivize rollout of networking infrastructure which is re-usable for providing people internet access. PKT also includes a 20% fee in each block which is allocated to a Network Steward which implements a transparent process to fund initiatives for helping build out the ecosystem (mostly open source software development).

There are multiple business entities who exist within the PKT ecosystem, including https://anode.co/ and https://pktpal.com/ but everybody collaborates using common chat and project management tools including MatterFOSS ( https://pkt.chat/ ) and our OpenProject instance ( https://projects.pkt.cash/ ).

We need a project manager who can:

  • Structure the OpenProject instance and train the team(s) to use it effectively
  • Conduct meetings and create Tasks during the meetings so everybody knows what needs to be done before next call
  • Seamlessly switch between coordinating agile software development projects (almost all FOSS) and more waterfall-like business planning
  • Effectively communicate with people who spend their whole day thinking about their particular intuitive and may have difficulty communicating outside of that

Particular skills which will be helpful:

  • OpenProject experience
  • Communication, empathy and ability to listen, question, and extract relevant facts from what is said
  • Root cause analysis
  • Reasoning in uncertainty
  • Ability to keep meetings focused
  • Knowledge of Scrum/XP/CMM/Waterfall, intuition on “when to use what”

If you are interested in learning more about this project, please email me cjd at cjdns dot fr and we can setup a call to converse further about it.
