CANADA - Remote, EMEA - Remote, LATAM - Remote, UNITED STATES - Remote

Full-time

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

We are looking for a senior backend engineer with production application experience to work on bringing transactions through the web3 ecosystem. This will include work related to the transaction supply chain and how we can facilitate a more frictionless user experience. Many of the activities we focus on are adjacent to ethereum and require an understanding of the EVM. We handle transaction simulations, transaction ordering and transaction routing. They all require an understanding and appreciation of the ethereum ecosystem, from dApps to DEXs and wallets to nodes.

In this role, you’ll be utilising technologies to enable visibility and understanding of transactions, working to keep people’s funds safe and secure. The services you will be working on are centrally hosted in the traditional Web2 sense and require monitoring and maintenance. You will develop and maintain public-facing API services supporting MetaMask users and developers. 

It would be great if you brought this to the role

  • 6+ years of experience as a Backend Software Engineer working on production applications
  • Proven experience working with systems utilizing Golang in production
  • Experience implementing appropriate software patterns and practices for complex business domains e.g DDD, CQRS etc
  • Experience working on agile projects in an Agile environment in CI/CD setup
  • Experience working in a distributed, asynchronous remote team environment
  • Writing good technical documentation for use by internal teams
  • Be “T-Shaped”, demonstrating a depth of knowledge in a specific area whilst maintaining a breadth of knowledge across multiple ecosystem topics.

Bonus Points for any of:

  • Experience working with decentralised applications or web3 protocols
  • Understanding of transaction supply chain, MEV and associated actors.
  • Experience with microservices architectures
  • General interest in DevOps topics/experience with Docker and/or Kubernetes and deploying cloud infrastructure (AWS / Azure)
  • General interest in economic incentive theory

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.
