🤝 New benefits for Talent.

Braintrust The Freedom of Freelancing with Security-1
Freelancing isn’t for everyone. Some feel full-time employment offers more security — steady pay, health benefits, and the expectation of ongoing work.

That may have once been true, but now freelance can have all those things too: Braintrust is proud to offer health benefits, career coaching, and even more job opportunities for Talent!

We’re taking the risk out of freelancing and empowering workers to build their dream careers on their own terms. Learn more about the benefits we’re offering Talent.


🚀 Even more new Web3 partners.

Finding work in Web3 just became even easier.

We’re partnering with DFinity, Decentology, ConsenSys Mesh, Sifchain, Provenance, and others to bring even more Web3 jobs to the network! We’re talking full-time, part-time, and grant-based projects that can provide a gateway (or a next step!) into Web3 for Talent on the platform. Learn more.

Soon, you won’t have to delete a submitted invoice to make changes.

Getting paid shouldn’t be a pain. That’s why we’re making improvements to invoicing. Up until now, if you had to make an edit to an invoice, you had to delete it and resubmit it.

We know nobody likes to re-do work. Braintrust is now working to implement an edit invoice option. Soon you’ll be able to make any minor (or major!) changes to submitted invoices without hassle and without help.


🎟Event recaps you need.

The Web3 event you shouldn’t miss — How to Land Your Dream Job in Web3 — is now on YouTube!

The event included Web3 leaders Jack O’Holleran from SKALE, Jack Chan from Harmony, and Scott Olson from ConsenSys giving practical advice for how to stand out in the Web3 hiring process.

It also featured Caryn Tan, the host of the Braintrust Web3 Cohort Course, and Aidan Musnitzky, the builder of the Braintrust Fee Converter, sharing their personal stories about how they got into Web3.

In other news, our Co-Founder Adam Jackson has been busy at events and on podcasts sharing some insights of his own.

👪 Community spotlight.

The community-created Fee Converter has been getting some serious attention on social media. More community members have been creating flywheel visualizations to show how the Fee Converter is taking client fees, converting them to BTRST, and funding more community projects. Here are a few:




The Fee Converter is a testament to the transformative power of this community, which saw an opportunity to improve our tokenomics. This ensures the community will always have funds to fuel its projects, and change Braintrust for the better—and you all made it happen. Learn more about the impact of the Fee Converter here.


💻 Product improvements.

Braintrust Growth Report 35 Product-1
Last month, Braintrust pushed a whole new “Create Job” workflow live in the product! Aside from making it easier for clients to post jobs, this new workflow has some seriously positive impacts:

  • It empowers more self-service capabilities for Clients. No more needing to ask for help when posting a role, it’s all smooth sailing.
  • It provides the platform with better, higher-quality, and more streamlined data which helps improve algorithmic Talent matching.
  • It enables the addition of new job types — hello, Grants!

🚩 Challenges:

The MVP Wave of the Braintrust Grants Program has shown us that plugging in community members to a core node's system and processes is easier said than done. In order to empower all the grantees to build their projects, Braintrust first needed to provide access to tools, information about how systems are organized, and clear frameworks for success. The challenge of making all these things accessible took longer than originally anticipated, and set a few of the grant timelines back by a couple weeks.
