About the Job

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

MetaMask aims to create a thriving engineering organization that supports the well-being of our engineers while empowering them to do work they are proud of and enjoy. We strive for an environment that gives our people high trust and autonomy, while also facilitating collaboration, communication and camaraderie among teams and teammates. We aspire to build a diverse engineering team, inclusive to people from all backgrounds and demographics. It is also of great importance to us that working at MetaMask is an experience that catalyzes career growth and learning.

What you’ll do

We are looking for someone with deep experience in both Javascript and Ethereum, who is interested in being seen as a subject matter expert in building crypto wallets. This person will work with several growing teams of engineers to develop various features that require interfacing with and extending web3 solutions, patterns and protocols. This could be work related to NFTs, tokens and other programmable assets, decentralized file storage, layer-2 networks, smart contract wallets, decentralized identity systems, wallet provider APIs and more.

Would be great if you brought this to the role

  • Serving as an expert in blockchain, DeFi primitive and other aggregation (NFT marketplaces) and advisor to the product experience teams building in MetaMask’s Curated Experiences group.
  • Providing, guiding and using cutting edge, scalable, secure and product-ready web3 solutions to solve critical user problems.
  • Identifying and implementing opportunities which require a longer term view and impact strategic goals and objectives. Results for this position impact multiple functions.
  • Collaborating with MetaMask leadership in other functions (product, design, operations, etc) to represent Engineering externally.
  • Investigating and resolving complex legal and compliance-related issues with an eye toward engineering.
  • All stages of the software development lifecycle from conception to production
  • TypeScript and React
  • Release/Delivery Management (shipping fast, often and securely)

Don't check all of the boxes? 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 to create a world-class infrastructure and tools function in our chaotic-but-fun, decentralized, remote-friendly, start-up environment—apply anyway. 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.

The salary range for US-based candidates only will be determined throughout the interview process depending on experience and skills. Candidates should anticipate a base salary (not including bonus, equity or other benefits) of $USD 98,000 - $USD203,000
