Job description

Our developers envision a world where blockchain and decentralized technologies play a pivotal role in transforming society. At ConsenSys Enterprise, we have been delivering blockchain software solutions to major global institutions for the past two years. As consultants, we work on-site with our clients to ensure we’re delivering the best possible solution. We believe that to flourish as a Full Stack Software Developer here, you will have the following competencies:

What we're looking for

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. Therefore, 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. 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: We would especially like to hear from you if you are strong in Java, Python, Haskell, Golang, or maybe also JavaScript/React.JS. 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.

Why you should join us

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 A few important things to know Travel is required. Projects may be on customer sites, so our blockchain consultants need to be flexible and up for extensive travel. Many of our consultants travel for weeks on end. We do our best to take people’s personal situations into account, but we know it’s not for everyone. 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.
