About Ujo at ConsenSys:

Ujo Music is a ConsenSys Spoke, with a vision for a music industry that allows creators to grow and thrive independently. It is a platform that uses the ethereum blockchain as the substrate for innovation by empowering artists, digitizing their music rights and metadata, sharing this information in an open environment, thus enabling new applications, products, and services to license their catalogs and pay artists directly with minimal friction. We are aiming to enrich the lives of artists and fans through a shared love of music, and excitement for the potential of decentralized technology.

  • You know how to use design patterns, with the ability to create simple and reusable components for complex UIs.
  • You are familiar with data structures and algorithms to the degree that you make informed optimizations when appropriate.

  • You are comfortable preparing and shipping code using a variety of server-side technologies such as Node.JS, Webpack, Grunt, Gulp etc.
  • You value code simplicity, performance, and the details.

You have a fear of the mundane and an excitement to push the boundaries with technology.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to talk.

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.
