Job Description

Senior Software Developer / Tech Lead
ConsenSys - Codefi Assets About ConsenSys
ConsenSys is a blockchain software technology company focused on building infrastructure, tools, and products for Institutions, Enterprises, and developers. Our mission is to drive adoption of the decentralized world wide web (Web3) and the Ethereum ecosystem, the only current candidate to be the automatic, objective trust foundation and base settlement layer for the planet.  If you are someone that thrives in a fast-paced environment where being self-directed, determined, and resilient are a requirement, we would love for you to join us.
About Codefi Institutional Product Group

This ConsenSys group is focused on two products:
  • Codefi Assets enables the manufacturing, issuance, sale, trading and use of digital assets representing either real world assets (commodities, good, etc.) or financial assets (shares of funds, bonds, syndicated loans, etc.) in a secure way and compliant with the relevant regulations.
  • Codefi Foundation enables the automation of underlying business processes across participants in ecosystems, reducing operational cost and risks and increasing trust between participants .


And contributes generic business middlewares/APIs of ConsenSysOS (ConsenSys blockchain Operating System for commerce and finance).


Codefi Assets is based on a multi-purpose Digital Assets API that enables the manufacturing, issuance, transfer of digital assets,  stablecoins, loyalty coins, collectibles. The API relies on open-source token standards designed and reviewed by the Ethereum community.


Codefi Assets also includes a Digital Asset Platform that is an advanced and configurable frontend for the Digital Assets API but mostly focused on asset management use cases (venture capital, private equity, real estate funds, etc.) and that incorporate a KYC module, Asset Creation module (reflecting the features of the API as outlined above) an Order Management module to handle subscription periods and soon a secondary trading module (Bulletin Board for the financial services industry or decentralised Atomic Swaps protocol for crypto/stablecoins use cases). The platform enables operational efficiencies and the expansion of market opportunities (broadening potential investor base, fractionalisation and therefore lower entry ticket, etc.)


Both the Digital Assets API and Platform are powered by Ethereum blockchain technology (the largest blockchain developer community in the world) and enable the deployment of use cases on private Ethereum, network, public Ethereum testnets or mainnet with also the ability to transfer tokens from one network to another securely.

Why join ConsenSys? Here are some of the perks of being part of a unique organization like ConsenSys
  • One of the most recognized tech companies in the blockchain ecosystem globally. A work experience at ConsenSys is a tremendous reference for your future career. ConsenSys alumni have moved on to become tech entrepreneurs, CEOs, team leads at leading tech companies.
  • 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. We believe that there is an opportunity to bring the remaining 2 billion unbanked people into the global economy and to radically transform our society for the enrichment of humankind
  • 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
  • Deep technical challenges. This entire ecosystem is less than 10 years old. Ethereum itself is still a toddler.

ConsenSys is building the technology platforms that can get us to those next thresholds of scale

  • Project work at client's office locations could be required (on average 50%, but can vary between 0% and 100% depending on project)
