About the role:

We're seeking a Frontend Developer who is a self-starter and quick learner with an interest in Ethereum and blockchain technologies. You have worked with large code bases while minimizing technical debt, have strong knowledge of modern Javascript, and care about crafting elegant, well-tested code.

  • 6+ years working with web-based technologies.
  • Expert-level knowledge of React, VueJS, or AngularJS
  • Extensive experience with modern Javascript (ES6/TypeScript/etc.)
  • Expert knowledge of CSS and CSS preprocessors (Sass / LESS)
  • Strong working knowledge developing cross platform/browser compatibility.
  • Experience working in an agile development team
  • Proven track record developing large-scale applications across the entire stack with minimal tech debt through sensible abstractions, testing, linting, and adherence to coding/web standards.
  • Experience consuming APIs.
  • A demonstrable understanding of CI.
  • Strong understanding of web-based security threats and prevention techniques.

Bonus Points:

  • Demonstrated passion for and knowledge of blockchain technologies.
  • An understanding of cyber-cryptography.
  • Experience working in a decentralized, distributed team.
  • Enjoys finding new technologies and processes that make life easier.

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.
