About Token Foundry at ConsenSys:

Token Foundry is an arm of ConsenSys Capital that helps promising blockchain projects launch successful token sales.  We have a strong understanding of the Ethereum blockchain ecosystem and work closely with companies and initiatives that can benefit from a decentralized protocol. We have successfully launched several token sales  and have several more in our pipeline. We are seeking applicants with a strong understanding of cryptoeconomics and blockchain protocols and a genuine interest in this space. The ideal applicant should have a hard work ethic, a proven track record and passion to succeed in an ever-changing and exciting digital landscape.

About the role:

Token Foundry is seeking a full stack developer with node.js and react experience.  The job will primarily focus on backend development in node.js, but will also include some front-end duties (e.g. creating pages with functional elements).

The ideal candidate will have between 2-5 years of experience in a professional development setting, with preference to those who have worked in high performance start-ups.

Requirements:
  • Javascript: node.js required, react strongly preferred
  • Some experience building web APIs (preferably RESTful ones)
  • Database experience: preferably SQL, but noSQL is fine too
  • Familiarity with Ethereum/blockchains (at least on a conceptual level)
  • Teamwork, flexibility, initiative, communication and organisation competencies are required.
  • Experience of developing highly secure and resilient code.
  • Understanding of Blockchain technology, especially Ethereum.

Preferred skills :
  • Cloud resource management (AWS, Azure)
  • UNIX wizardry and devops experience
  • Python (for scripting)
  • Teamwork, flexibility, initiative, communication and organisation competencies are required.

 

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.
