Postcapitalist Economic Systems Architect

Remote Work Full-time


“We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings.” ― Ursula K. Le Guin

“There is no alternative.” — Margaret Thatcher on neoliberal capitalism

One Project is looking for a Postcapitalist Economic System Architect to co-create new and amplify emerging economic and governance systems that are equitable, ecological, and effective. You'll work closely with our partner communities around the globe to imagine, model, simulate, realize and support new systems and promising experiments already underway. You’ll steward the effort to develop the technical mechanics of those systems, then partner with One Project’s design, engineering, and community engagement teams to prototype, iterate, and scale those systems as digital and social infrastructure.

Even as capitalism’s destructive effects on the planet and its people become more widely recognized, there remains an absence of rigorously-defined planetary alternatives. The debates of the 20th century that concluded there were no better options were based on technical and social assumptions that no longer apply in the 21st. We are inspired by the successes of noncapitalist economic approaches, many developed by indigenous and grassroots communities, to distribute resources and live more fulfilling lives. We aim to work in solidarity to evolve these into viable, global, democratic alternatives for a world in crisis and opportunity.

While we hope the Postcapitalist Economic System Architect will bring a combination of technical and leadership skills, this role indexes more heavily on the technical skills and presents an opportunity to grow your leadership in an exciting and growing organization. You’ll work alongside members of our team, including Raphael Arar, Sasha Constanza-Chock, Daniel Deng, and Justin Rosenstein, in a collaborative and supportive environment.
