I know him from the telegram group of snowball. He was one of the best admins I have ever seen. I believe that the communication skills he has can add too much value to Avax ecosystem. Also, he has good knowledge of the DeFi ecosystem in Avalanche. I fully support this proposal as a community member from the beginning of the Pangolin journey and looking forward to seeing him as a Community Manager in Pangolin.

I fully support this proposal. I’m not only on Telegram but also on Discord and @Leo_Pangolin is gold for the Avalanche DeFi ecosystem. Pangolin really needs a guy like him and the position as Community Manager fits a skilled guy like him perfectly.

I think Best_coder_NA is the best fit candidate for community manager. Best_coder_NA will be an important team player for the entire Avalanche ecosystem with the role at Pangolin

İt all reads great, your mindset also sounds good. Are you going to do an AMA (Ask me Anything) on ​​YouTube too? The community should already know who the people behind the Nicks, are. That is also the price (getting out of anonymity) for getting these great tasks and roles…

We have candidates who describe their ideas, vision, goals etc. for the position they have defined. It is important that we also know this from companies and Pangolin is also a company that defines the tasks and requirements for the job. The position can be given many names, the tasks, responsibilities, and authorizations are decisive, this has to be clear so that there is no misunderstanding later. It is also important so that there are no misunderstandings in the division of tasks. This is also important for the subsequent evaluation of the performance.

general consideration

Roles, Responsibilities, Authorities

Hey I would love to do an AMA. Do you prefer written format or video call?

As for defining tasks and requirements for the job, I agree that it is important to be transparent about responsibilities and authorizations. I can describe my role and responsibilities at a high level at this point: community building, creating partnerships, establishing network effects, building support processes, establishing our brand, etc. I also think it is important as an early core contributor to have the flexibility to wear many hats, and also to do what is necessary to add value to Pangolin without being boxed into a rigid title.

Appreciate the links that you provided! I think they ask great questions, and we as the Pangolin community should try to find the right balance between establishing formal structure without compromising the speed at which we can build and innovate.

Let me know if you have any more specific questions about this, happy to answer.

I think the role of the community manager is a very important position in community-driven DEX. I hope that you will be able to contribute to the development of pangolin by demonstrating your abilities.

I can’t support this enough! I’ve had the pleasure of working with Best_Coder_NA for a few weeks on various projects. This dude can do it all! He’s on discord, telegram, twitter, reddit, heck we joke that he’s even running a myspace page for some extra engagement.

I have no doubt he has the skillset for engaging effectively and actively across multiple platforms. He also has the ear of so many other communities already as he has been integral with creating partnerships and outreach. I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve heard “yeah I was chatting with ____ on telegram and am thinking about ___”. That is exactly the community engagement Pangolin (and Avalanche) needs and I know nobody better to bring it than @Leo_Pangolin!

Both, the written document and the face-to-face conversation are important.

The document and the video can be stored centrally and then accessed by anyone if necessary.

The question is, what do the other community members think?

A survey like the one hariseldon2 did would certainly be the most efficient. Its AMA is at 8 pm UTC today.

From the V1.1 Roadmap

Thanks for putting yourself forwards @Leo_Pangolin
Can I ask why do you pick Comminity Manager over Developer?
I am not suggesting Community Manager is the wrong job, I’m just interested to know why :smiley:

I think while Brand, Graphics & Visuals should have input from the Community Manager, we can afford a separate Designer and Marketing Manager.

Hey that is a good question.

I would like to be community manager over developer for the following reasons:

  1. Impact - my impact to Pangolin is much greater as a community manager than as a developer. I excel at creating relationships and partnerships, as well as engaging with communities.
  2. Preference - I enjoy the community manager role more than the developer role
  3. Need - Pangolin needs both a community manager and developers. There are some great developers already, such as Bmino, that we will add to the core team.
