This proposal is cross-posted at https://www.dashcentral.org/p/coreteam-comp-201804

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.

We have not submitted a budget request for the Dash Core Group compensation since October 2017. At this time, we have sufficiently drawn down our reserves to now justify further funding for the core team. The team has expanded to 60 paid team members, and we have open positions that will further expand this over the coming two months to approximately 70. The current run-rate is ~$305,000 monthly. This is an average of ~$5,100 / month / contributor.

Glenn Austin will be editing this proposal within the next 24 hours with supplemental details on the breakdown of the number of resources we have working in each department, similar to our past core team compensation proposals.

EDIT: Here are the details referenced above (just adding to the OP)

The breakdown of the number of staff we have working in each department is as follows:

- Marketing / International Outreach - 9 staff - plans to expand to 11
- Development - 27 staff - plans to expand to 33
- Project Management - 3 staff - plans to expand to 4
- Infrastructure - 3 staff - plans to expand to 4
- Support - 1 staff - plans to expand to 2
- Quality Assurance - 4 staff - plans to expand to 6
- Leadership and Admin - 10 staff - plans to expand to 11
- Strategy - 3 staff - plans to expand to 4
- Human Resources - 1 staff
- Business Development - 2 staff - plans to expand to 5

If you have any questions, please direct them to @glennaustin in this Dash Forum post to ensure we are notified of your request.

Requested funding is as follows for the April 3rd budget cycle:
  • 697.53 Dash for core team compensation ($305,000 USD @ $437.26 per Dash)
  • 5.00 Dash proposal reimbursement
Total: 702.53 Dash

Note: Should any funding remain, we will apply it toward future compensation expenses.
