ConsenSys is seeking an experienced Community Manager to create an active and engaged community of blockchain technologists, entrepreneurs, and product enthusiasts in London and the UK, while positioning ConsenSys as a thought leader in all things blockchain / Ethereum.

The successful candidate will be able to quickly develop a strong understanding of blockchain technology, the Ethereum platform and ConsenSys' value proposition and entire suite of products and services, and become an ambassador, educator and evangelist on all of these.

This is a dream opportunity for any blockchain enthusiast who is also experienced in building communities, has worked in digital marketing, social media marketing, and events management!

As the Community Manager, you should ideally have a solid understanding of the blockchain marketplace and competitive landscape. This includes blockchain early adopters, having an understanding of both B2B and B2C applications of blockchain, and/or blockchain for social impact.

If you are already plugged into the blockchain community in London or elsewhere in Ireland, UK or Europe, this would be hugely beneficial!

You will be someone who feels comfortable learning new technologies quickly, frequently testing and iterating on your ideas, and scaling things that work to maximize results.

To be a successful community manager you'll also need to be scrappy, self-reliant, and have a knack for understanding what motivates and grows communities, and how to develop B2B and B2C businesses across the blockchain ecosystem.

In return, you will get to be at the forefront of a technological revolution, helping to tap into and grow a community like no other!

  • Identifying business development opportunities generated by Community efforts and making appropriate introductions to colleagues in Solutions, Spokes (startups within ConsenSys) or one of ConsenSys’ venture studio companies.
  • Identifying content marketing campaigns (on-site, social, and guest posting), press and communications opportunities for the EMEA circle.
  • Developing and managing strong relationships at government agencies, foundations and institutions to expand the community within Dublin and further afield.
  • Educating regulators on how to oversee blockchain usage/deployments to pave the way for large-scale adoption of blockchain technologies in both the public and private sectors.

  • Experience planning and hosting in-person events and meetups to hit strategic goals, as well as vetting sponsorships and speaking engagements.
