When The House of Obsidian wanted to raise the bar and bring quality talent for Web3, we first thought of Jayce “Gosu” Azua from WaifuTV.

With nearly a decade of experience in multiple startups and big-tech companies, we thought it was an obvious decision to bring him on board to build and vet talent for Developers by Obsidian! He is currently building value at Amazon Prime Video and is passionate about engineering a rug-free Web3.

Our Process

Curated Web3 talent is no longer hard to find.

Web3 Talent by Obsidian leverages the expertise of a 'Big Tech' engineer with an extensive background in software engineering and building in Web3 in order to showcase curated talent so that you can achieve your vision.

Our vetting process, created by a 'Big Tech' engineer, consists of multiple screening and onboarding steps:

Resume Screening

Candidates are pooled according to their professional experience: ui/ux, front-end, back-end, full stack, smart contract dev

Online Assessment

Candidates' work style and approach are assessed with a specialized online testing process that generally requires one to two hours to complete.

Virtual Onsite Interview

Qualifying candidates move onto the interview phase where their technical skills, cognitive abilities, and behavior are analyzed.

Data Review

The data from each candidate's results in steps 1-3 is compiled to score their overall performance

Final Vetting

The hiring committee then reviews qualifying candidates' performance and score. The committee includes an additional individual who was not present in earlier vetting phases to provide a non-biased opinion of the information presented. Together, the hiring committee will decide whether or not each candidate will move forward.

Developer Verification Process

Step 1:Onboarding Contract

Once a Web3 talent has passed our vetting process, we send them the necessary Web3 Talent by Obsidian contract that each individual is required to sign.

It should also be noted that we move to the following step only after all the previous steps have been completed and the contract has been signed.

Step 2:Identifiable Document Submittal and AI Verification

A special order number and verification portal URL link is given to the developer who uses it to submit their identification documents which are then verified using AI.

Step 3:PEP & Sanctions Check

A Web3 Talent by Obsidian team member then ensures that there are no red flags that came up during a PEP & Sanctions list checks along with other due diligence processes to ensure that we are working with the correct individuals.

Step 4:Recorded Video Interview

A recorded video meeting is then conducted with each developer in which a variety of topics are discussed including, but not limited to

  • 1
  • 2
    Area of expertise and focus
  • 3
    Project safety tips and other related information

At this point in time, each individual is also required to verify the wallet address they will be using for the program.

Our Developers

Obsidian Tier System

Web3 talents who are fully vetted are assigned to one of two tiers: Fresh Talent and Battle Hardened Talent.

The individuals listed as 'Fresh Talent' have a fundamental understanding of programming and software engineering principles. This includes knowing how to write code that is modular, readable, and scalable.

They are receptive to feedback and see every form of criticism as an opportunity to grow. They are able to solve problems on their own but are also comfortable asking for guidance if they are unable to resolve the issue and move forward.

Individuals classified this way are building experience, developing insight on engineering tradeoffs, learning from the guidance offered, and questioning standards through evidence and logic. They may require supervision and guidance from an individuals listed as 'Battle Hardened Talent' or a more experienced Web3 talent.

The individuals listed as 'Battle Hardened Talent' embody everything required to be 'Fresh Talent' with additional independent capabilities.

They require little to no supervision and are able to accurately estimate the effort needed to complete an assignment within the scope set.

This role requires the talent to fully understand the software engineering lifecycle which includes the principles of documenting and planning before executing.

Battle Hardened Talent comes in with a "strong opinions loosely held" mentality. They are able to make engineering tradeoffs and quickly design solutions. They are resourceful in their approach to solving problems. They can be trusted and they do not let their ego get in the way of delivering quality work.
