We are looking for a Policy Partnerships Lead to coordinate TBD’s digital identity work with governments, standards bodies, and third-party partners. You are familiar with decentralized platforms, bring relevant experience in standards and public policy issues in the digital identity space, and have experience engaging with policymakers, standards organizations, and civil society organizations. You will manage complex and technical policy matters, spot challenges and opportunity, work collaboratively across the organization to guide outcomes, and advocate on behalf of issues at the intersection of financial services and technology.

You will collaborate with TBD colleagues in compliance, legal, products, and partnerships, and with Block’s larger Global Policy team. You will report to TBD’s Head of Policy. 

You Will:

Develop and deepen expertise in digital identity, “self-sovereign identity” and related standards for Decentralized Identifiers and Verifiable Credentials.  

Develop government partnerships with municipalities and states on digital identity and credentials in partnership with our state and local policy team.

Organize TBD/Block participation in standards bodies important to the development of open identity protocols and government adoption of digital credentials. 

Develop partnerships with important third-party partners (privacy groups, technology coalitions, open source advocates) who are important players in policy discussions around DIDs, VCs, and other areas of importance to TBD.

Support the Head of TBD Policy in other important work, including building strategic plans and creating legislative and regulatory priorities and advocacy plans for engaging on TBD policy priorities.
