About ConsenSys

ConsenSys is a venture production studio building decentralized applications and various developer and end-user tools for blockchain ecosystems, primarily focused on Ethereum.

The ConsenSys “hub” coordinates, incubates, accelerates and spawns “spoke” ventures through development, resource sharing, acquisitions, investments and the formation of joint ventures. These spokes benefit from foundational components built by ConsenSys that enable new services and business models to be built on the blockchain. In addition to the development of internal projects and consulting work, ConsenSys is interested in the identification, development and acquisition of talent and projects on an ongoing basis.

Your qualification

Technical Skills

  • Core blockchain concepts. Blockchain is a new field of technology that is rapidly evolving. If you are not yet fully immersed in the technology, you should be willing to dive deep down the rabbit hole. 
  • Architecture. You should be comfortable working with your team to craft a design: choosing the appropriate technology and designing a solution that both answers the problem at hand, and stays within constraints.
  • Coding. Our clients don’t all work in one language or platform, and neither do we. As a Full Stack Developer, we’re looking for a breadth of experience in multiple languages, and proven expertise in one or two:
  1. We would especially like to hear from you if you are strong in Java, Python, Haskell, Golang, or maybe also JavaScript/React.JS
  2. You should be comfortable with Rapid Application Development, and be up to speed on practices like TDD, continuous integration, pairing, and infrastructure automation.
  • Cloud deployments. Experience building for deployments to AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, etc. using Docker would be helpful. If you're also comfortable with distributed systems and technologies, great!
  • Prototyping and PoCs. You'll have experience of building prototypes for different use cases, and won't get too worried if needs and priorities change, meaning that they don't end up being implemented.
  • Agile. We believe strongly in agile delivery practices, having implemented them for ourselves and our clients to great success. You should be very comfortable working with Agile, Lean and Continuous Delivery practices -- and love it as much as we do.

Soft Skills

  • Sharing knowledge. Working together with the rest of the team to help each other get up to speed on new languages and skills. We all learn from each other, especially in such a rapidly changing space.
  • Thinking big and acting fast. You’ll need a startup mentality, and will revel in rapidly switching between different projects, priorities and contexts. Being ready and able to pivot or adjust plans quickly is one of your strengths.
  • Open minded and flexible. Your role as a Full Stack Developer won't be set in stone, so it's vital that you enjoy change and you're willing to experience new ways of thinking and working with the ConsenSys teams. Sense of humour is a plus!

Will be a plus

It would be beneficial if you already have experience or awareness of Ethereum, Solidity, Truffle, Infura, Geth, Parity, Quorum, or other blockchain platforms and technologies.

What we offer

  • The forefront of a revolution. At ConsenSys we fundamentally believe that a next generation of technologies presents the opportunity to create a more just and equitable society. We believe that there is an opportunity to bring the remaining 2 billion unbanked people into the global economy and to radically transform our society for the enrichment of humankind.
  • A dynamic startup environment. ConsenSys is a thought leader in the blockchain space and we are absorbing a significant portion of the mindshare. This is both exciting and challenging, as we learn to scale our organization while adhering to the principles of decentralization.
  • Continuous learning. You’ll be constantly exposed to new languages, frameworks and ideas from your peers and as you work on different projects -- challenging you to stay at the top of your game.
  • Deep technical challenges. This entire ecosystem is less than 10 years old. Ethereum itself is still a toddler. There is much to be done before these platforms can scale to the order of millions or billions of users. ConsenSys is building the technology platforms that can get us to those next thresholds of scale.
  • ConsenSys was just named a Top 100 FinTech company by KPMG's 2016 Fintech Innovators report
  • Residing near our European HQ in London is required. If you currently live elsewhere, we can work with you to find a home base for relocation.
