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

The Extension Platform team aims to enable other teams - such as those building Swaps, Snaps, Confirmations, hardware wallet integrations, NFT management, Security Features, and more - to effectively integrate with and ship through our browser extension wallet. We build tooling, architecture, libraries and subsystems for initiatives such as: migrating our codebase to Typescript, making it easy and fun to write automated tests, improving state management systems, better utilizing remote error monitoring systems, improving performance of local build systems, enabling static analysis of code quality, and better leveraging browser APIs to make new users experiences possible. We don’t build features directly for MetaMask’s end users, but we build the foundation on which those features are built, the tools used to build them, and the systems used to release them.

As part of the Extension Platform team, you would help us build these foundations, tools and systems, empowering MetaMask’s engineers to build high quality wallet features at a high velocity.

Who we are looking for

We are looking for someone who is passionate about building and improving developer experiences and tools. We want to work with someone who is excited about the challenge of help other developers improve the velocity, quality, stability and scalability of their engineering, and who enjoys building tools, automations, APIs and frameworks.

Regarding specific experience, we are looking for someone who is well experienced with JavaScript/Typescript and Node.js, and who has at least one year of professional experience as a software engineer. We are also looking for experience with:

  • Front-end build tools: Grunt, Gulp, webpack, or similar.
  • Browsers, browser APIs and browser extensions.
  • CI tooling. We use GitHub Actions and CircleCI, but familiarity with any similar tools is also great.
  • Yarn, javascript dependency management and associated tooling
  • Automated testing: unit, integration, end-to-end.
  • React and Redux
  • web3 and blockchain
  • Must be able to overlap with teams in EST (9am-1pm)

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.
