About Protocol Labs

Protocol Labs drives breakthroughs in computing to push humanity forward. Protocol Labs is a product-development lab, but behind the protocols and tools we build, behind the research and implementations, are passionate people, teammates, and community members. Most teams in the Protocol Labs Network are fully distributed and work remotely around the world. Engineers, researchers, and operators work in the open to improve the internet — humanity's most important technology — as we explore new advances at the intersection of many exciting fields (web3, cryptography, networks, distributed systems) and cultures (startups, research, open-source, distributed work).

Key Summary:

You will supervise and produce video editorial content and resources for the Protocol Labs network. Your content will showcase groundbreaking projects and individuals across the network, educate Labbers on key web3 trends and solutions, and accelerate the growth of the entire network.

Protocol Labs Network Services

Protocol Labs is a research and development laboratory that has built and scaled multiple projects that have made great contributions to the web3 ecosystem. To fuel our next phase of growth, we’ve created a new team — Network Services — to provide services and capabilities that our projects and the broader ecosystem can leverage, including design, video, events, operations, content, IT, and more. 

As the Supervising Producer for Network Services, you will play a critical role in connecting the network, telling stories in and around the ecosystem, and working with internal and external collaborators to develop and deliver engaging video formats. You’ll identify key and emerging storylines in web3 and have the creative presence to tell them in a way that reaches the widest audience. You’ll highlight teams and individuals across the network, helping network members get to know each other and collaborate more effectively.

  • Build a network of companies, creative professionals, agencies, co-producers and partners throughout the country and globally.

  • Have a history of success creating content for a variety of formats and platforms, especially YouTube and social media.
  • Have strong creative vision and the capability to transform complex concepts into premium and engaging content formats.
