Linear Finance partners with Work X to use their ‘Internet of Jobs’
Dear Linear Community,
We are delighted to announce our partnership with the ‘Internet of Jobs’, Work X. This new collaboration will allow Linear Finance to hire quality talent with verified work experience and skills in both the Web3 and DeFi industries.
For those of you that are not aware, Work X is a decentralized job economy that matches candidates with job openings based on verified references and skill assessments. Additionally, Work X is building an open marketplace for online assessments and online education courses from external platforms. Candidates will be able to measure & develop their skills to improve their match with jobs at Linear.
Ironically, trust is often an issue in the trustless world of blockchain. By collaborating with Work X, Linear Finance will be able to scout and hire qualified candidates to join our team. With many people operating anonymously and countless impersonators, it’s hard to verify the identity of someone behind a computer.
Work X uses verified email domains from CoinMarketCap to verify an applicant’s work experience. Candidates can send a reference request to a previous employer. This will allow Linear to only interview top candidates with the desired credentials to work with us.
“As an early user of Linear myself, I’m very excited to be able to contribute to the growth of the company by finding the right talent for the job. Linear has proved to be a very valuable partner during the development of Work X.”
— Rik Rapmund, CEO Work X
“We’re excited for the launch of Work X and look forward to posting our current and future vacancies on their platform. Finding the right talent with a matching skill set in an industry that’s constantly evolving is crucial to any project. An efficient hiring process is always welcomed.”
— Kevin Tai, Project Lead of Linear Finance

About Work X
Work X is building ‘The Internet of Jobs’; a decentralized, non-profit & sovereign platform economy for work. Work X cuts out the commercial middleman to optimize salaries and minimize service costs. Where existing platform economies like UpWork or Fiverr charge up to 30% commercial fees, Work X only charges a small fee to cover the running costs of the DAO. Users can utilize Work X without any knowledge of web3 or blockchain technology; people pay with both crypto or fiat and the UX will be very close to what people are used to. The big platform economies give their users the perception that they work peer-to-peer, but economically this is not true; causing low salaries and high service costs. The commodifying underlying technology provides the opportunity to build a new economy that doesn’t optimize the profits of a tech giant, but the salaries of the workers!
