ConsenSys is a venture production studio and the leading technology firm in blockchain globally. We deliver products, solutions and platforms built using blockchain technology to transform how business is done in complex network of buyers, suppliers and consumers.

Our teams are busy at work building the future of identity, financial markets, commerce, the music industry, security, and infrastructure, and more. To accomplish this we've built out a flat organizational structure which we call the ConsenSys Mesh: a network of individuals & teams working autonomously and towards the same goal.  Our mission is to use these decentralized solutions to fundamentally reshape the economic, social, and political operating systems of the planet. If you are someone that thrives in a fast-paced environment where being self-directed, determined, and resilient are a requirement, we would love for you to join us.

About Truffle at ConsenSys:

Ethereum is at the forefront of the blockchain technology, and at Truffle we're working hard to build tools that'll make this industry thrive. Truffle, a Consensys company, is currently the leading Ethereum development platform worldwide. Truffle is looking for a talented Integrated Software Tester to help build the next generation of Ethereum development tools.

About the role:

Your primary role as an Integrated Software Tester would be to help the team ensure the quality of the products we ship. Ensuring quality is a team effort, so you'd be integrated directly within the development team, providing developers with valuable feedback on new features, bug fixes and changes as soon as possible, often before they're ready to merge to master. Your day-to-day will largely include performing manual testing strategies like session-based test management to elicit new information about existing and new products, though automated testing skills are a plus. Your communication skills our paramount, and your ability to advocate for issues with our software will be your greatest asset.

In the Integrated Software Tester role, you will be expected to:
  • Execute manual testing strategies to elicit new information about each of the products we build.
  • Constructively communicate issues to developers and key stakeholders, and advocate for issues that might otherwise go unnoticed or under-prioritized.
  • Have a working knowledge of git, Github, Node JS, npm and other software development tools.
  • Have software development experience, as our tools are primarily geared to developers within the Ethereum ecosystem.
  • Write clear and concise bug reports that cut to the heart of the issue quickly and constructively.
  • Investigate issues to reveal their root cause, removing any unnecessary information that will distract from fixing the issue.
  • Communicate with users on a regular basis, as our users are sure to provide helpful test ideas.

Some things we like to see:
  • Expertise working as an Integrated Software Tester on existing development teams.
  • Programming experience building applications using web technologies (Javascript, HTML, CSS)
  • Knowledge of context-driven testing.
  • High communication skills via writing, voice and other mediums.
  • Creating ways to advocate for issues, including screenshots, screencasts and videos
  • Desire to improve the "testing culture" within both Truffle and Consensys
  • Enthusiasm about Ethereum and blockchain technologies.
  • Ability to stay very productive while working remotely.

As an Integrated Software Tester, you'll be pivotal to helping us build great software, and we'd love for you to apply. This position is a fully-remote position, and is open to anyone that overlaps with United States timezones. Consensys is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate based on race, gender, age or sexual preference. We welcome all to apply!

 

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.
