Civil: A Self-Sustaining Journalism Network

Civil is using a token-based economy to incentivize news reporting and fact-checking on a decentralized journalism platform. Our mission is to fuel a more civil society through self-sustaining journalism.

At Civil we are building an Ethereum-based decentralized marketplace for journalism that can be used to create “newsrooms” -- digitally capitalized decentralized marketplaces where citizens and journalists can form communities around a shared purpose and set of standards, economically support factual reporting and investigative work, and substantially limit misinformation through effective crowd-vetting methods. The net result is a social marketplace for journalism that is free from ads, fake news, and outside influence.

We published our  whitepaper  a couple months ago that was covered by Politico, Neiman Lab, Poynter, Bloomberg, Fortune, Coindesk and elsewhere.

We are looking for exceptional engineers, designers, product managers, journalists and marketers to build and scale the Civil platform. You should be passionate about building innovation solutions for a groundbreaking new marketplace focused on improving the state of journalism and its impact on society more broadly. You should be thrilled to join an early stage startup, willing to roll up your sleeves and wear multiple hats. You should be highly organized, detail-oriented and timely in your work. You should have a desire to grow with the company -- encompassing not only the development of your functional skills but also your leadership and management abilities. 

- Engineers should have working knowledge of blockchain systems and consider themselves fairly advanced.

Working at Civil
Fulfilling our mission requires building a phenomenal team. At Civil we are building an open, trustworthy and transformative work environment and career opportunity for our teammates to do their best work.

We believe performance is measured at the team level, not the individual. We don’t believe in traditional hierarchy or corporate structure. Instead, we intend to create a more dynamic and synchronous organization of self-managing individuals and high-performing teams.

We believe in vesting as much autonomy & freedom into the individual as possible while still maintaining cohesion within teams and as an organization as a whole. We believe star players expect a vast range of responsibility, to make decisions quickly and without hesitation, and to manage their own priorities fluidly. However, with this level of freedom and our need for consistent cohesion, Civil teammates also recognize the huge premium we place on communication, context, inclusion, and feedback.

We aim to constantly improve ourselves as teammates and individuals through frequent feedback & radical listening. Consistent, proactive communication and feedback becomes a tool for ideas, higher-quality execution and personal and team development. Additionally, we support each other through collaborative coaching & mentorship.

We place great value on happiness, holistic health, personal space and well-roundedness. We are committed to fostering an inclusive, diverse, and open culture that allows you to bring your whole self to work. Furthermore, we respect the fact that everyone has personal lives and families and we encourage balance and attention to personal wellbeing. We believe peace of mind and the drive for continuous improvement are personal requirements for working at the top of one's game.
