Jorge Lopes Contributor Proposal [18 April 2022 - 18 May 2022]

Background:
I started the onboarding process after initial contact with Zett. Although I haven’t worked previously as a Web3 developer, I have enterprise experience as a developer for the banking industry and I’ve been an advocate for cutting edge technologies and innovation in my previous role.

Professionally, I have been involved in developing choreographed distributed systems leveraging scalable, secure, and robust solutions while adding value to the whole process. I believe my background in the financial sector will help enlighten my contributions to DXDao in general and, in particular, to the Swapr project.

Furthermore, although I was working full time as a team lead and developer, I became interested in blockchain technology and gained some experience in the crypto-sphere as a trader and a node operator. This kindled my curiosity in internet-native organizations and decentralization and I now plan to dedicate myself full time to learning more about development for Web3 and DAOs.

Timeframe:
1 month
Starting at 18th of April

Proposed Scope of Contribution:
Goals:

  • Start Eco Routing V2 Implement

I had an interesting call with Jorge, in which he was talking about the complex systems he’s has built at HSBC. I believe Jorge’s background in software architecture will improve not just Swapr, but the entire suite of DXdao’s products. I’m excited to help him onboard Swapr!

Shorting the banks and longing Web3 is a smart move!
