Reserve - Senior Microeconomist

Senior Microeconomist

Reserve Oakland, California, United States of America

Summary: We’re looking for an experienced applied microeconomist with demonstrated skill at designing complex incentive mechanisms to lead our stabilization protocol development team. We are open to short-term, contract work for exceptionally skilled candidates.

What we’re doing

Everyone’s money should be secure. Unfortunately, due to broken financial and monetary institutions around the world, billions of people don't have access to basic financial services like a trustworthy savings account. We’re trying to change that.

Reserve is a blockchain-based, decentralized currency that is always worth $1, is cheap to transfer, and provides its users access to basic financial services. While Reserve is valuable to traders and app developers inside the crypto ecosystem, we’re most excited about it replacing inflationary currencies and dysfunctional banks. And with the currencies in Venezuela, Iran, Argentina, Turkey, and elsewhere approaching hyperinflation, now seems like the right moment for people to choose something new.

Decentralized currencies have the opportunity to change global financial and monetary institutions for the better. If you’re excited by this idea, we would love to hear from you.

If you'd like to learn more, check out this recent interview of our CEO Nevin Freeman on the podcast Hidden Forces: https://www.hiddenforces.io/podcast/show/hard-prob....

Your role

Designing a self-stabilizing, decentralized currency is a formidable incentive engineering challenge. Our CTO Matt likens it to playing poker against the entire market while everyone can see your hand. There are many disaligned parties that have to be coordinated through decentralized incentive mechanisms, including traders, the owners of our two tokens, arbitrageurs, and more.

As lead microeconomist, you will take over from our CTO Matt in owning the economic design and development of the protocol that stabilizes the value of our currency, the Reserve. (You'll be freeing Matt to direct additional focus to other parts of the company.) While the core economic design is mostly complete, we still need to verify the protocol design and figure out low-level components. We also intend to pursue major design projects in the future including decentralized governance. You would lead these efforts.


You will be specifically responsible for:

  • Leading, managing, and scaling the protocol team.
  • Determining high-level goals and directions for protocol development.
  • Directly working on protocol design. Before our launch, protocol work will be focused on verification of our core economic design. After launch, work will be primarily focused on governance design.
  • Writing both technical and persuasive documents describing our protocol and arguing why it will work.


REQUIREMENTS

  1. You have direct experience applying microeconomic knowledge to the analysis and design of incentive systems in the real world.
  2. You are able to think systematically and literally about formal systems and can spot every minor problem in a system that most people would gloss over.
  3. You are able to track high-level priorities while simultaneously working on detailed, technical problems. You don't get lost in the weeds.
  4. You are comfortable managing and scaling a team.

BENEFITS

  • Competitive compensation with the ability to customize cash versus equity.
  • A beautiful office with views in Oakland. Excellent restaurants and coffee shops right down the street.
  • Health insurance coverage.
  • Free gym membership.
  • Well stocked kitchen, including catered meals, drinks and snacks.


A final note: In your cover letter, please explain why you’ll succeed at the incentive design challenge, expanding upon any relevant previous experience if applicable. If you really want to impress us, also tell us about something we got wrong or that we missed in our analyses of MakerDAO or Basis.

Reserve - Senior Macroeconomist

Senior Macroeconomist

Reserve Oakland, California, United States of America

Summary: We are looking for a theoretically skilled, experienced, and charismatic macroeconomist who will take point on determining whether and how a decentralized currency could replace existing monetary and banking institutions.


What we’re doing

Everyone’s money should be secure. Unfortunately, due to broken financial and monetary institutions around the world, billions of people don't have access to basic financial services like a trustworthy savings account. We’re trying to change that.

Reserve is a blockchain-based, decentralized currency that is always worth $1, is cheap to send, and provides its users access to basic financial services. While Reserve is valuable to traders and app developers inside the crypto ecosystem, we’re most excited about it replacing inflationary currencies and dysfunctional banks. And with the currencies in Venezuela, Iran, Argentina, Turkey, and elsewhere approaching hyperinflation, now seems like the right moment for people to choose something new.

Decentralized currencies have the opportunity to change global financial and monetary institutions for the better. If you’re excited by this idea, we would love to hear from you.

If you'd like to learn more about what we're working on, check out this recent interview of our CEO Nevin Freeman on the podcast Hidden Forces: https://www.hiddenforces.io/podcast/show/hard-prob....

Your Role

As lead macroeconomist, you will lead our efforts in determining whether a decentralized currency should replace inflationary currencies and bad banks, how exactly this could happen, where we should try this first, and what are strategy is for achieving this. This will be building upon work we've already done on this topic and will be in collaboration with others working on similar questions.

This role is roughly half economics research and half business development. On the economics side, you will be theorizing about the general structure of major monetary and financial institutions, their relations, and how decentralized, stable money could fit into the overall picture. On the business development side, you will be networking with central bankers and economists, building relationships with potential partners, and most likely traveling on and off the beaten path, visiting unusual parts of the world where our currency might be best suited to gain a foothold. This will happen in collaboration with the rest of our BD team who are exploring similar questions, though you will have significant autonomy. Over time, depending upon the results of your efforts, you will build a team of researchers and networkers to further our efforts.


REQUIREMENTS

  1. You are excited by the potential of a decentralized, alternative form of money to improve the global financial system. You’ve been thinking about how to improve the institution of money for years and are ready to turn theory into practice.
  2. You have broad expertise in macroeconomics, both practical and theoretical, ideally with particular expertise in monetary economics, the theory of money, central banking and economic history.
  3. You are driven to understand how things really work behind the scenes and aren’t deceived by the appearance of things.
  4. You are charismatic, good at networking and building relationships, and are undaunted by the challenge of collaborating with top government and bank officials. Ideally, you already have a network that we can tap into when you come aboard.
  5. You are excited about frequent and occasionally exotic travel.

Note that we are flexible on #4 and #5 for exceptionally theoretically skilled candidates.

BENEFITS

  • Competitive compensation with the ability to customize cash versus equity.
  • A beautiful office with views in Oakland, California. Excellent restaurants and coffee shops right down the street.
  • Health insurance coverage.
  • Free gym membership.
  • Well stocked kitchen, including catered meals, drinks and snacks.

A final note: We're much more likely to reach out if you can explain in your cover letter:

  1. Why do you want to help build a stable, decentralized currency?
  2. How do you currently think a decentralized currency should fit into the global monetary / financial system?

Reserve - Economist in Residence

Economist in Residence

Reserve Oakland, California, United States of America

Reserve’s mission

We believe that everyone’s money should be secure. Billions of people around the world don't have a safe place to store their money. Their banks can't be trusted. Their governments inflate their currency to pay off debts, hurting citizens. Our mission at Reserve is to change that. Reserve is a stable, decentralized currency that can’t be abused by a government. It’s globally distributed and outside of anyone’s control, so bad governments can’t shut it down.


Your role

You will help verify the economic design of our protocol. Our team of skilled thinkers have built, as judged by our investors, the best design for cryptocurrency price stabilization. This was a result of our careful, methodical analysis and guidance from our strong network of economists (in particular, Garrett Jones). But the stakes are high; if any part of our economic design is wrong then our protocol could end up unravelling. Your role is to continue on the work of our protocol development team and meticulously check that our protocol will, in fact, handle each problem.


Since verifying our economic design is critical, we are open to someone parachuting in for a limited time to just carry out this role.


Your day at Reserve
