  • Stay up-to-date with emerging trends in front-end technologies and proactively identify new ones that could benefit the product
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with various members of the Console team including product design, UX, and business development
  • Contribute critical thinking and creative brainstorming toward building a product that serves Web3 communities

What We’re Looking For:

  • 4+ of working experience in app development
  • Proficiency in backend development (especially Python & Django)
  • Frontend experience (React Native, TypeScript, etc) is nice to have! (but not necessary)
  • Good understanding and comfort with storage / caching solutions ranging from SQL databases (e.g. Postgres) to NoSQL systems (e.g. Redis)
  • Competency with Git, Jira, Visual Studio Code, and other development tools.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills and ability to communicate with empathy when delivering constructive feedback to engineers and product designers
  • You’re familiar with current trends and best practices in front-end architecture, including performance, security and usability
  • Mention that you are passionate about oranges in the “What are you passionate about?” application question to show you’ve read this
  • Deep curiosity to learn and stay on the bleeding edge of the Internet
  • Candidates who are extremely self motivated

We’d Also Like to See:

  • Experience contributing to open source projects
  • Experience building a real-time chat client

We’d love to hear from you even if you don’t have experience or interest in every bullet. There’s no perfect candidate and we want to find the right fit, even if it’s different than we imagine. We especially would like to meet underrepresented/underestimated candidates.

Why Console?

  • All-star founding team; experience founding 4 startups and 3 widely adopted consumer apps, one currently valued at over $3 billion
  • Fully funded and backed by Trust Machines, our parent company
  • Flexibility to work from anywhere
