Nathan Worker Proposal 3/16/21 – 5/26/21

Date of proposal: 03/29/21 (end of my 2-week trial)
Proposal period - 2.5 months /10 weeks/, retroactively from 16th Mar '21

On the eve of my first fortnight with the team, I am submitting my official worker proposal as a Biz Dev Wiz.

At this point I have no doubts that this is the place, to which I’d happily devote all my mental energy, time, sweat and tears, for the rest of my foreseeable future.

My impeccable impression of Martin, with whom I’ve dealt in the past, gave me the confidence to explore the opportunity to join dxDAO in the first place.

Just wanted to say that starting at level 5 which is the maximum experience level is not realistic in my opinion, I will recommend you to start at level 3 and increase gradually in each worker proposal.

Judge on level is not easy to do. I got two people requesting L5 in the past, one was Ryu and the other Lee. We accepted this for the 2 weeks trail because at this point we could not judge and we had a high demand.

But then, after the trial, we have told them that they can only be a L4, mostly because I consider a L5 has to do more for the DXdao than just do their work. Ryu did drop out a week later. (I don’t think that the L4->L5 downgrade has anything to do with this, but may have been a reason. Ryu did SC hacking.)

Best would be, if people explain more why they feel to have a certain level? Specific to the Experience Guidelines here DXdao.eth

I had two calls with Arhat and I can’t judge his Biz Dev skill, but he has profound knowledge about many different defi/crypto projects.

For me, the 80% discount in the first two month is the price you pay to get into the DXdao and to learn how we work. This can’t be a reason for the level.

Final word, I would consider Arhat an L4 at least, but maybe @sky can an add some word because he did study Arhats CV. Also for non-tech workers its more difficult to judge on the level.

To add, maybe am spoiled, because of the high salary level in CH. Here a good dev makes ~120K a year.

Hard to judge for a DAO of more than 400 REP holders and many more DXD holders with soon to have voting rights when the CV and social media credentials were only sent to 1 person. Give me a great CV or great proof of work if you’re gonna ask for Level 5 from Day 1. Neither is present here.
