ConsenSys is a venture production studio focused on building and scaling tools and enterprise software products on the Ethereum platform. Our mission is to use these solutions to power the emerging economic, social, and political operating systems of the planet.

Our teams are busy at work building the future of identity, financial markets, commerce, security and infrastructure, and more. 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.
The Role
ConsenSys is seeking a PR specialist at the Associate or Coordinator level to oversee external communications facing enterprises, governments, and general consumers.
