This proposal funds the Dash Core Group's ongoing compensation costs - including all developers, administrative, and support staff - at market rates for base pay, excluding benefits or bonuses.
After five months without a budget request for the Dash Core Group compensation, we have sufficiently drawn down our reserves and require further funding for the core team. The team has expanded to 50 paid team members, and we have plans to further expand this to 56 over the coming two months. The current run-rate, including the anticipated cost of the additional 6 roles is ~$298,280 monthly. This is an average of ~$5,300 / month / contributor.
The breakdown is as follows:
- Marketing / International Outreach - 8 staff
- Development - 23 staff
- Project Management - 4 staff
- Infrastructure - 1 staff - plans to expand to 3
- Support - 2 staff
- Quality Assurance - 1 staff - plans to expand to 3
- Leadership & Admin - 11 staff - plans to expand to 13
If you have any questions, please direct them to @Ryan Taylor in the original Dash Forum post to ensure I see your request. I may be slow to reply until Thursday due to our participation at Money20/20 this week, but will do my best to monitor for any questions.
Requested funding is as follows for the November 3rd budget cycle:
1,125.16 for core team compensation ($298,280 USD @ $265.10 per Dash)
5.00 Dash proposal reimbursement
Total: 1,130.16 Dash
Note: Should any funding remain, we will apply it toward future compensation expenses.
