Software Engineer

Company: Consensys

Salary: $0 - $0

Location: EMEA - Remote


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.

About MetaMask

We’re building for a future where the internet and world economy empowers people through interactions based on consent, privacy, and free association. Where both communities and individuals flourish. To accomplish that, we’re working hard to make web3 accessible for everyone around the world.

MetaMask is both a crypto wallet and a gateway to the decentralized web. Our tools help people create communities, play video games, access financial services, make payments, invest in assets, protect against economic turmoil, and more. Our browser extension and mobile platforms meet the needs of millions of users and developers across the world.

Originally a humble key manager, today MetaMask serves over 30 million monthly active users as a decentralized application development platform, an aggregator of decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges, and a decentralized identity manager.

What you’ll do

As part of the MetaMask Extension team, you will contribute to core user experiences that all MetaMask users depend on, while also building the platform that other MetaMask teams need to deliver great functionality.

The Extension team’s core UX work includes network and account management, settings and onboarding flows, navigating the wallet, the “home screen” of the wallet, and the browser-wallet interface. To contribute to this, you’ll write React and layout code to translate designs to reality for millions of users.

The Extension team’s platform work aims to enable other teams to effectively build and ship feature within the core UX described above. We enable the teams building features such as Swaps, Snaps, the confirm screens, hardware wallet integrations, token and NFT management, and more. We do this by building tooling, architecture, libraries and subsystems for initiatives such as: migrating our codebase to Typescript, making it easy and fun to write automated tests, improving state management and migration systems, better utilizing remote error monitoring systems, and enabling static analysis of code quality and complexity. We're committed to providing stable, bug-free releases to our extension and add-on stores, and we'd like you to help us ensure that.

We also believe in working closely with our customer success team, and using specialized software for monitoring application performance and tracking errors. This is a full stack role, and great match for someone who is equally as excited to build UIs react as they are to write lower level UIs with node.js We're excited to have you join us on this journey.

Would be great if you brought this to the role

  • Championing major refactoring initiatives such as the Typescript migration
  • Creating and maintaining developer tools such as ESlint rules, code quality and complexity static checks
  • Use your knowledge and previous professional experience in Javascript, React, hooks and CSS to bring new UI features into the extension.
  • Front-end build tools: Grunt, Gulp, webpack, or similar.
  • Experience working with browsers, browser APIs and browser extensions.
  • Experience with CI tooling. We use GitHub Actions and CircleCI, but familiarity with any similar tools is also great.
  • Yarn, javascript dependency management and associated tooling
  • Browsers and browser APIs
  • Experience with testing: unit, integration, end-to-end.

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.
