About Organizational Development at ConsenSys

Consensys is developing itself as a self organizing system. ConsenSys believes that this is the only way we can be nimble and innovative enough to stay in the lead of the blockchain field. Project DNA combines our Organizational Development & Global Operations Circles. Our goal is to facilitate the development of a self-organizing ecosystem that is agile, scalable, representative and transparent. We coordinate the creation of the mindsets, structures and skillsets needed for self-organization at the individual, team, and company-wide level.

Experience with startups, or working at a non-traditional corporate organization or nonprofit is preferred.  Knowledge about blockchain & Ethereum is not required, but candidates should be interested in the technologies poised to transform the way we live, and be open to learning deeply about blockchain topics.

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.
