Summary

I’m working mainly as a developer relations engineer at Polywrap. In this role, I meet with potential launch partners to help the understand our project and its use-cases. I’m also the liaison between Polywrap’s core dev team and our launch partners, relaying any technical issues that the LPs have with our toolchain. Aside from dev relations, I help with general operations, community management, frontend development, and more.

This month, I focused on operations - doing project management on the raise as well as helping finishing our fundraising package (slides and valuation models), and practicing for presentations with stakeholders. I met with potential launch partners, helped current ones with any questions and continued improving this new proposal submission process. I always presented to the Uniswap community in their Discord.

I ended up working less than full-time this month for personal reasons but plan to revert to full-time in September.
