Our mission is to unlock the collaborative power of communities by making Web3 universally easy to use, access, and build on.
Working with Consensys puts you at the forefront of an evolving paradigm, transforming our society for the better. We fundamentally believe blockchain is the next generation of technology that can lay the foundation for a more just and equitable society.
Blockchain tech is just over 10 years old. Ethereum itself is still a toddler and we’re far from reaching our full potential. You’ll get to work on the tools, infrastructure, and apps that scale these platforms to billions of users.
You’ll be constantly exposed to new concepts, ideas, and frameworks from your peers, and as you work on different projects — challenging you to stay at the top of your game. You’ll join a network of entrepreneurs and technologists that reaches the edge of our ecosystem. Consensys alumni have moved on to become tech entrepreneurs, CEOs, and team leads at tech companies.
Infura is the leading infrastructure platform providing scalable and easy-to-use APIs and cloud solutions for blockchain and decentralized application developers. Infura currently offers APIs for Ethereum, IPFS, and other leading decentralized networks, allowing developers to immediately begin building instead of spending time on architecting and maintaining their own infrastructure.
Infura provides developers instant access to decentralized and blockchain networks without the need to sync or understand complicated peer to peer infrastructure. Similar to how one might access a cloud service to alleviate the friction of owning proprietary compute and storage, Infura lowers the barrier to entry for engineers to begin building.
We believe in a more equitable and decentralized future, and we know developers will be at the forefront of that progress. We want to empower developers to spend their time building, creating, and evolving by providing them with the best and easiest solution to their infrastructure needs.
What you’ll do
Team leads are focussed on delivering excellence in execution. The engineering manager is accountable for delivering projects, prioritizing work for the team, and representing the team’s interests as a point of contact. In people management, the team lead will work with engineering directors to coach and develop the careers of the team members. Holding one on ones, identifying and coaching areas for improvement, and strengthening the team as a whole is important to maintaining a high performing team. The team lead understands the big picture, knows how projects fit into the larger context, and can communicate this to the team.
The tech stack is cloud native and largely in Golang. It is microservice oriented and uses a mixture of relational and nonrelational databases.
Would be great if you brought this to the role
You bring empathy and supportive leadership. You understand that “responsible for” doesn’t always mean doing the task, but delegating the task to the right person on the team. You are product minded and can help represent the engineering perspective when we create solutions. You have a strong background in software engineering and while you may not code everyday now, you have the knowledge it will take to guide the team. You know how software is put together, how to navigate the challenges, and know how to manage trade offs to deliver a project. Basic project management skills are a bonus. While you may not be running scrum ceremonies, knowing how to break up work and deliver a project as a team is an essential skill.
Experience in the technologies used in our webstack is something that will make you successful in this role. While blockchain (and specifically Ethereum and IPFS) experience will be very helpful in these roles, it is not required.
Don't meet all the requirements? Don't sweat it. We’re passionate about building a diverse team of humans and as such, if you think you've got what it takes for our chaotic-but-fun, remote-friendly, start-up environment—apply anyway, detailing your relevant transferable skills in your cover letter. While we have a pretty good idea of what we need, we're ready for you to challenge our thinking on who needs to be in this role.
