Jack Dorsey is recruiting his own personal bitcoin posse – Mashable

If reporting directly to an eccentric billionaire and getting paid in bitcoin sounds like your cup of tea, then does Jack Dorsey have an offer for you. 

On March 20, the CEO of both Twitter and Square made use of the former to announce a new and very specific job opportunity in the land of cryptocurrency. Specifically, Dorsey wants you to join his personal super crypto posse — saving the bitcoin-maximalist world one open source contribution at a time. 

“Square is hiring 3-4 crypto engineers and 1 designer to work full-time on open source contributions to the bitcoin/crypto ecosystem,” he wrote. “Work from anywhere, report directly to me, and we can even pay you in bitcoin!”

And while Dorsey only announced the new roles at Square today, he’s already giving out marching orders. Essentially, he wants his renegade crew to make cool open source stuff (and, again, report directly to him). 

“These folks will focus entirely on what’s best for the crypto community and individual economic empowerment, not on Square’s commercial interests,” Dorsey wrote. “All resulting work will be open and free.”

That the lasered-goat eating CEO wants cryptocurrency to succeed should not come as a surprise. The Square Cash App allows users to buy and sell bitcoin, and he has spoken in the past about the need for the internet to have its own currency — presumably one that isn’t FacebookCoin.

“The internet deserves a native currency; it will have a native currency,” he told a gathered crowd at the 2018 Consensus conference. “I don’t know if it will be bitcoin or not. I hope it will be. I am a huge fan.”

Now a lucky few have the chance to help make Dorsey’s BUIDL dream a reality, all the while working directly with the bearded wonder himself. The world of cryptocurrency truly is magical.
