Proposal: Stable Comp For Critical Roles

This has been an ongoing discussion, and drafted off the latest conversation amongst the team. This highlights some of the key roles/responsibilities vital to keeping the ship running bear or bull. This does not preclude or prevent additional compensation from other sources such as governance proposed budgets and ops distributions.

Critical Roles Included:

  • Fulfillment Manager - DamagedGoods ($2,000/mo)
    • NYC x Decode MicroFactory Lead. MF fulfillment operations and logistics. Customer Support coordination w/ Admin. Work with below roles to foster further Zero Waste Design Decode relationship.
  • Technician Lead - CptnSkeletor ($2,000/mo)
  • Production Management - Milfdad ($2,000/mo)
    • Above 2 Roles: Coordinate drop collabs, blank selection, design quality assurance and Curation Funding when applicable. Ideation β†’ Fulfillment. Improve processes and transparency as it relates to the ERP, new design direction, Berlin/NYC and platform improvements.
  • Project Administration - Drew, Daofren, NiftyFifty ($6,000/mo) TOTAL
    Project Admin Team has opted to self-manage their budget/distributions to account for value contributed.
    • Bussiness Ops/Financials, Customer Support (Shopify, Emails, Twitter, Discord), Community/Onboarding, Discord/Moderation, PR/Client Relationships, Housekeeping + Improvements to Process Documentation & Tools (Notion, Sobol, Dework), Shop Listings.

  • Monthly KPI reports to audit performance
  • Quarterly reviews for budget renewal & roster adjustments

The nature of the DAO life equates to many contributors providing value and often wearing many different hats, putting in work where it’s most vital at any given time to expand the scope and ambition of MetaFactory. again, this by no means captures the full roster of contributors that are deserving. Many originally proposed have opted-out, due to compensation coming from scoped project budgets, etc. It is low to prevent an unsustainable burn-rate, especially during da bear market conditions.

Ops Distributions per the Milestone Distribution Schedule is unaffected.
Other paths to stable/$ROBOT compensation encouraged via scoped project/budget and working group proposals taken to snapshot, such as M3org has been doing and the recent Creative Consortium Proposal.

Should also be a future bounty budget allocation proposed soon for quicker compensation to part-time and one-off contributors for quicker comp and a means to onboard/rain $ROBOT on new talent and community members. Post NYC will also take a look at a wholistic way to adjust the current Distro Schedule for more frequent, smaller distros + Tech/Designer reward tweaks in line with the Curation Funding model.

Please drop thoughts/feedback and any tweaks prior to going to snapshot :beers:
