We need to grow the team before moving forward I’d like to share a brief draft of OmakaseBar and JiroOno bio. so I can have a community consensus to keep the process transparent.
They have been involved since the start of the project and have been doing a lot of work on the current product and future UI. I think it made sense to have both join the team in a full time manner to consolidate our efforts and to ensure things keep moving.
Here is a short bio/proposal of OmakaseBar :
Here is the bio of JiroOno :
Hello I’m Jiro Ono, an anon developer that has contributed throughout the space
under various pseudo names. Anonymity is important to me, and I believe it
one of the important pillars in crypto which is why I choose to stay anon for the
TLDR - I consider myself a full stack engineer, with a unique skillset
in big data and machine learning. A wearer of many hats, and I have extensive
experience working with many different languages/technologies.Have been a
follower and contributor in crypto for a number of years, and a big believer in
decentralized/community owned projects.
Though I am anon, I believe it is important to give the community my complete
background (minus the specific details), and to stay as transparent I can. So
here’s my story:
Started programming when I was 13, and currently have 15 years of experience
under my belt working in several industries and with various tech stacks.
In my early days, I started with scripting languages to develop bots that I’m
sure many of you saw being used on various social media sites to help with
many affiliate marketing campaigns I operated.
Started my first successful project when I was in my later teens, that involved
working with several freelancers to help build out the platform. This is where I
first became accustomed to the open source, and freelancing community.
I then went to school in the States, and completed my Masters in Computer Engineering
with a focus in big data and machine learning. During my time in uni, I worked for
a startup centered around machine learning and helped build out some of the key
data pipelines and ml interfaces.
After uni, I got a job in cefi with a well known bank. I worked in the ML
department, and specifically worked on a crucial product that is still used today
to determine the risk levels of potential customers. This is where I initially became
frustrated with the legacy banking system, and discovered crypto currencies.
While working for this bank, a couple of other devs and I started a
crypto project right before the big boom of 2017. After starting this project,
I decided to leave my job to focus full time on the endeavor. Though it was quite
the ride working in the space during the bull market, we didn’t make it through the
crash and ended up dissolving the project due to lack of funds.
Since then, I’ve worked on various part time projects within ML and the crypto
space. Where my focus/attention has primarily been in Ethereum, and web3 technologies.
I’ve bounced around quite a bit during this time frame, and up until sushi was
primarily building stuff for my own use.
So why am I here, and why do I want to become a core member of SushiSwap?
For one, the complete decentralization and community driven aspect is very
enticing for me. I’m a big believer in community owned projects, and the power
of the community is quite special.
The resiliency of the community and the group of volunteers that devoted
a lot of their time during the pre/post migration phase. Truly a special moment
to witness, and especially working with all of the others behind the scenes on
the successful migration.
A kick ass project, something I’m sure you all are aware of. But it’s worth
highlighting, because the opportunity ahead of us is something we as a community
should truly be excited to be a part of.
Overall, my aspirations for this project are quite high and I couldn’t think of
a much better use of my time then to commit fully to the SushiSwap community.
The community aspect is quite valuable, and I as one of the lead devs want to
make sure that we get a system in place that streamlines the process for others
to get involved and contribute in a decentralized/secure manner.
I’d like to have some feedback and thoughts on both and if community is willing to move forward.
In my opinion they are exceptional candidates and some might have asked why this wasn’t posted before, I needed to have all of the elements presented here before moving forward while respecting a small cooldown period and no-pressure environment for both.
- Yes hire both
- Yes but some tweaks
