Remote, Global/Preferable US, Canada, UK, Australia, Truffle Team, Full Time
At ConsenSys we have a vision of a world where data sovereignty and financial well-being is accessible to every person and organization. We believe Ethereum and decentralized protocol technology is a more trustworthy and equitable foundation for how we create and share value across the web. On this trusted, open source foundation, we can accelerate the world’s transition to a universally accessible network of distributed participants where transparency, security and freedom are fundamental.
Our product suite, composed of Truffle, Infura, Quorum, Codefi, MetaMask, and Diligence, serves millions of users, supports billions of blockchain-based queries for our clients, and has handled billions of dollars in digital assets. As the leading Ethereum software company, ConsenSys enables developers, enterprises, and people worldwide to build next-generation applications, launch modern financial infrastructure, and access the decentralized web. To learn more about ConsenSys, and explore our products and solutions, visit http://consensys.net/.
We make open-source tools for building blockchain applications. Our tools let users simulate blockchain virtual machines, debug smart contracts step-by-step, manage suites of automated tests, deploy applications to live networks, interface with smart contracts at a high level of abstraction, and much more. We believe that software development tools should offer sensible defaults and never lose sight of human intent amidst low-level details.
We believe in cultivating autonomy, mastery, and purpose, both for ourselves and for our community. We recognize that developing great software requires passion for the positive impact of the work and passion to support each other as a team. We recognize each other by our strengths, not our weaknesses, and we maintain space for everyone to say “I don’t know.” We work remotely except for when we meet up with each other (pandemic aside) at conferences or as a group at team retreats. We’re a dedicated team with a playful sense of humor, constantly seeking new ideas.
What you’ll do
As a Senior Frontend Engineer, you’ll be working closely with the core Truffle team to build cutting-edge front-end experiences that aid developers in their web3 journeys. This will include ownership of our open-source front-end libraries, the development of the visual components to our CLI and desktop tools, and collaboration with teams across ConsenSys including Metamask, Infura, and Diligence.
With regards to medium-longer term R&D, we’d love for the individual in this role to start exploring how we meaningfully improve the developer experience at the intersection between on-chain data (which is increasingly spanning numerous layers) and the accompanying front-ends, wherein the latter is also stored decentrally.
We anticipate this role to be a key contributor to our website, both in terms of the content itself and the evolution of the underlying framework and deployment pipeline.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly of all, you’ll bring a passion for working with both the existing Web3 developer community and onboarding the next generation.
Would be great if you brought this to the role
- A passion for working closely with, nurturing, and growing the web3 developer community
- At least 3 years experience of building web applications
- Demonstrable experience with React.js and at least one other equivalent framework
- A desire to contribute to medium-large scale open source projects
- Experience in Typescript is a plus
- Experience in blockchain and building Dapp front-end is a plus
Would be great if you brought this to the role
- Real world Decentralized Application (dapp) development
- Open source software contribution and project maintenance
