Hi MGD! I’m Andy Boyan, an MGD Member and Founder of Infinity Keys (infinitykeys.io). IK is a gamified achievements platform with composable pieces from any web3 asset that helps projects & communities build engaging virtual challenges and quests. (we should do something w MGD btw).
The full time team consists of myself as Founder, (female) Technical Lead Tawnee Allport, Technical PM Chair, and a number of supporting advisors and part-time contributors. One of these part-time contributors is Kori Riddick, a Jr. React and Front-End Developer developing her skills and experience in a production-level environment including web3 components for about 6 months.
This grant proposal is to support Kori Riddick as a paid intern under Infinity Keys for the next 3-10 months. The main ask is $3,000-$10,000 for the following reason: for $1,000/mo, MGD can support Kori as she (exponentially) grows on front-end development and learning how to integrate web3 into front-end applications. This proposal would use all funds at $1,000 per month directly to Kori, and Infinity Keys would match that contribution 1:1.
The ideal outcome is to end the grant early either by hiring Kori full time as a Jr Dev (depending on Infinity Keys fundraising outcomes in 2023), or for Kori to use her skillset to earn a full-time position in another web3 Jr Dev role. This funding would enhance Kori’s ability to develop in under several highly capable mentors.
We believe this grant is within the scope of MGD grants, directly supports technical development for women in web3, and indirectly supports a female (partially) owned and built project.
Reach out with Q’s. I’m magic#4311 in the MGC Discord and andyboyan about everywhere else.
