About Cellarius at ConsenSys:

Cellarius is currently seeking a Front End Developer with a passion for science fiction, media, and art applications. You have an interest and/or experience in content creation, digital rights, and software platforms—you are passionate about the needs of users in relation to these areas. As a front end developer at ConsenSys, you will partner with the ConsenSys Engineering organization to take products from ideation and rough prototypes to production systems, relentlessly validating and pushing for accessible, delightful front end solutions.

As a Front End Developer, you will:
  • Design and craft software for a growing community of dreamers, writers, creators, and futurists who want to empower people to tell their stories and reach a global audience
  • Work with a team of distributed engineers in order to ship reliable code with minimal defects
  • You trust your instincts, but you trust data from A/B tests more
  • Be part of an early stage startup learning to grow and work together to deliver on a disruptive mission
  • Iterate upon our engineering culture by participating in team-wide initiatives such as such as recruiting, developing development principles, and improving development tools and process

What we ask for:
  • You have 3+ years of experience working as a front end developer on agile teams
  • Thorough knowledge of Javascript
  • Experience working with React/Redux
  • Current with the state of the JavaScript and Flow ecosystem (ES6, Babel, NPM, Webpack, Rollup, etc.)
  • Strong design focus with commanding grasp of HTML, CSS, and related web technologies
  • Awareness of cross-browser compatibility issues and client-side performance considerations
  • Familiarity with continuous integration and deployment
  • Basic knowledge of back end APIs and how they interface with front end components

Even better if:
  • You’re interested in or have experience with decentralized applications and blockchain
  • You have experience at both large organizations and start-ups
  • You have experience in an arts-focused software platform
  • You enjoy some amount of ambiguity and freedom to experiment

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.
