You’re passionate about design and helping high caliber designers step into the sometimes intimidating world of blockchain.

  • Process. Constantly improve and iterate on design recruiting and hiring process, creating feedback loops on recent hires for data used to improve. Test and research the target candidate pools through surveys and conversations

Provide complete, accurate, and inspiring information to candidates about the company and position. Partner with Marketing to further build brand awareness of opportunities

What we ask for:
  • 5+ years recruiting/sourcing experience, with at least 3 years of experience supporting creative teams

  • Deep knowledge in all full lifecycle recruiting components including, but not limited to, sourcing, qualifying, networking, assessing, legal, job analysis, wage and salary trends, relationship management, and due diligence.

Even better if:
  • You’re interested in or have experience with decentralized applications and blockchain
  • You have experience in talent acquisition for high-volume global companies
  • You’re interested in or have experience recruiting for tech platforms and open source
  • You enjoy some amount of ambiguity and freedom to experiment
  • You’ve been a designer yourself

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.
