Hi there! I’m Olumide, I work in Program Ops at Stack Shift — the network for experienced tech talent in Africa. We’re excited by remote work and the prosperity it will bring. Our mission at Stack Shift is to help you unlock this opportunity.
We believe that to advance remote work, the biggest lever isn’t technical training. It’s access to powerful networks. That’s why we started Stack Shift dWeb - a fellowship program focused on Web3.

The dWeb Fellowship

Last week, we concluded our fifth cohort of our dWeb Fellowship with 30 participants. We had participants in Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa. They worked in engineering, product, marketing, and operations. More than half of the cohort also worked in Web3 companies like Consensys, Status, Unstoppable Domains and IOV Labs.

Some examples include:

During the fellowship, we had:

  • three IRL socials
  • Deep Dives on Web3 ecosystems
  • Weekly peer group accountability meetings
  • Workshops like salary negotiation, stock options, technical interviewing
  • Reverse demo days where companies pitched us opportunities

And a lot more. If you’re curious, here’s the full calendar of events

Some pictures to give you a sense of the fun:

Next cohort:

We started recruiting today for the upcoming cohort, which will begin in mid-July. Because the fellowship is focused on networking, not technical training, we target people who are either 1) already working on Web3 or 2) senior enough to easily transition.

Applications are currently invite-only. If you’re interested, you can learn more about the fellowship and submit your interest here. We’ll reach out to schedule an intro call if it looks like a potential fit. We have a very small team and limited bandwidth, so my apologies in advance if we don’t reach out to schedule a call with you.

Our goal with the selection process is to curate a mix of participants that have aligned goals but also a diversity of expertise compared to those already accepted. Either way, we’ll keep you informed of awesome Web3 events, insights, and jobs.

Hope to see you at an upcoming event soon!
