About DeFi at ConsenSys

ConsenSys aims to be the industry leader in decentralized commerce and finance (“DeFi”). In that capacity, ConsenSys is building tools and services for consumers to easily access and navigate the decentralized ecosystem.

About the role

ConsenSys is looking for a Full Stack Engineer to help us build our consumer DeFi platform.

As a Full Stack Engineer, you will be responsible for

  • Architecting and building complete product features, including frontend, backend, and smart contract code
  • Having ownership over the code and being able to make crucial decisions
  • Reviewing and testing your teammates pull requests
  • Monitoring and supporting 24/7 applications and services
  • Providing input to refine the product vision, functionality, and design

Qualifications

  • Organized, independent and self-sufficient
  • Good understanding of web application architecture
  • You are an expert in Javascript and node.js and keep up to date with the latest developments in back-end technologies, and web standards
  • You're comfortable writing ES6+
  • You've interacted with APIs and database systems (SQL, NoSQL).
  • You have general familiarity with React
  • You have experience working with blockchain technology (e.g. wallets, escrow, multi-sigs) and protocols for p2p networking, storage, and communications (IPFS, libp2p)
  • Working with UNIX / Linux based operating systems
  • Strong interpersonal skills and ability to make things happen
  • Ideally, have experience working in a startup environment where you have had to wear many hats at a time (and those hats may change periodically)
  • An understanding of the Blockchain and Ethereum ecosystem, with an interest and curiosity to learn more

Here are some of the perks of being part of a unique organization like ConsenSys:

  • 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.
  • 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 about 10 years old. Ethereum itself is still a toddler. There is much work 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.
