Product Manager (Protocol Engineering - Mainnet)

  • Token Foundry @ ConsenSys
  • Jan 07, 2021

Job Description

About the role
As a mainnet-focused product manager on the Protocol Engineering team, you will ensure that Hyperledger Besu remains a first-class mainnet client, while still meeting the needs of enterprises and paving the way for a smooth transition to Ethereum 2.0. You will own the mainnet roadmap, and will work closely with internal and external stakeholders to deliver it. Specifically, this means daily interactions with the Besu core development team and the broader Ethereum community ("AllCoreDevs"), frequent communication with the business development and strategy teams, and close collaboration with other product managers in both the Protocol Engineering team and other ConsenSys products (Infura, MetaMask, Baseline Protocol, etc.). Your work outputs will include product roadmaps, feature requirements, and artifacts to highlight your team's work.

If you are excited about making Ethereum a more resilient protocol for developers, thinking through product and engineering tradeoffs, and having a significant amount of your work done in tandem with the broader Ethereum community, this role is a great match for you!
What we are looking for
  • 2+ years experience in product management;
  • High level of familiarity with Ethereum;
  • Effective and powerful communicator who excels with a team that values autonomy;
  • Sufficient technical knowledge to think through complex feature specifications at a high level. The role does not require writing code, but it helps to (eventually!) understand how an Ethereum client works under the hood (e.g. EVM transaction processing, peer management, syncing, etc.);
  • Familiarity with modern product management tools, i.e. GitHub, Jira, Trello, etc.;
  • Open to learning and collaborative by nature; willing to give and receive feedback;
  • Comfortable with handling uncertainty and ambiguity, proficient with analysis, troubleshooting, and problem solving.
Bonus points for
  • Experience working with Ethereum, even more so at the protocol level;
  • Experience working on very technical products;
  • Having demonstrated the ability to learn about a domain rapidly;
  • Having worked in a globally distributed team;
  • Having worked in a remote role.

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 for our chaotic-but-fun, 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.
