With the Commons Stack, we are building a world where public goods are valued and protected by the communities that use them. Our current economic paradigm incentivizes the exploitation of the environment and systemically undervalues open-source software, open research, and every other altruistic effort to address our collective needs.

We firmly believe we can create economic systems that can counteract this effect and reward value creation that creates abundance and prosperity for the collective good, as opposed to only individual benefit. The Commons Stack is building a library of open-source blueprints for constructing these economies, breaking them up into governance, funding, the allocation of capital, and feedback components.

Today we are looking for an experienced communications lead or two complementary communication all-rounders to support our mission.
