About ConsenSys
ConsenSys is the leading blockchain software company. We enable developers, enterprises, and people worldwide to build next-generation applications, launch modern financial infrastructure, and access the decentralized web. Our product suite, composed of Infura, Quorum, Codefi, MetaMask, and Diligence, serves millions of users, supports billions of blockchain-based queries for our clients, and has handled billions of dollars in digital assets. Ethereum is the largest programmable blockchain in the world, leading in business adoption, developer community, and decentralized finance activity. On this trusted, open source foundation, we are building the digital economy of tomorrow.

Description: Magmo is a 5 person team focusing on Ethereum state channels research and implementation. State channels are an Ethereum scaling technique. Over the past two and a half years, the team has released a protocol specification and client/application implementations. To find out more about state channels, check out https://statechannels.org/ .

Responsibilities: we are looking for a person who is excited to work on developing a bleeding edge technology alongside a group of motivated engineers. On our small team, we value the following:
  • Clear verbal and written communication for exchanging ideas and priorities.
  • Clean code, but we also value practicality over perfection.
  • Collaboration to solve tough engineering problems.
  • Flexibility to pick up new tools and languages.
  • Feedback from each other to help improve as individuals and as a team.

Skills and experience: No existing blockchain experience required. We would prefer to hire someone who has contributed to the success of complex software projects. That being said, extensive software experience is not a must as our team includes a former mathematician and a former physicist who are now excellent engineers. Strong analytical thinking is a must.

Current Magmo team members work from home across the world, but we have physical offices in New York, Dublin, London, Paris and Hong Kong..
