Job Description

About the Ethereum Foundation

The Ethereum Foundation (EF) is a global non-profit organization dedicated to supporting Ethereum and related technologies. Our mission is to do what is best for Ethereum’s long-term success. Our role is to allocate resources to critical projects, to be a valued voice within the Ethereum ecosystem, and to advocate for Ethereum to the outside world.


The Go-Ethereum (Geth) team is looking for someone to join them full-time to work on documentation for the client. The core responsibilities for the role would include updating, maintaining, and, most importantly, re-architecting the documentation to be richer in context, providing better examples & tutorials, and generally being best-in-class.

This role would help make Geth even more accessible, by not only explaining how features work but also incorporating the design rationale and examples that are too often lost in merged PRs (example).
