ConsenSys is not just NFT players, but we have expertise up and down the entire technology stack all the way down to Layer 1 Ethereum.
We are looking for a diverse group of developers, creators and technologists who are interested in day to day exciting challenges, who are resilient, and who thrive in the exciting and fast-moving NFT industry.
What you’ll do
As Full-Stack Tech Lead, you will be helping lead a world class technical team, with State of the Art expertise in developing & delivering NFT projects and product features. You will be part of multinational agile teams working on world-class, exciting and highly visible client projects, where you will lead a scrum team of between 5 and 10 engineers to deliver front-end services and/or product features, back-end product features and/or services and/or blockchain smart contracts.
As a Tech Lead you typically spend 50% of your time coding and 50% of your time coaching the other engineers on the scrum team. This includes: working with a technical architect to design the high level solution, working with a business analyst to groom the JIRA tasks for the next sprint, reviewing pull requests, and leveraging your methodology and technical expertise to help your team during focused problem solving sessions.
The role is client facing. You are expected to constantly improve your problem solving skills, communication skills and relationship building skills in order to manage clients at key project milestones (key technical decisions and trade-offs, demos, knowledge transfer).
Within the project team, you establish your credibility and lead the team through project phases by demonstrating outstanding technical judgement, advocating the benefits of agile methodology, and coaching team members individually to make the project an enriching and fulfilling experience for them.
The project team size, scope and your responsibilities will vary from project to project. Some of our projects involve 5 team members for 3 months, others involve 50 team members for 12+ months. Most of them require world-class level of production-grade delivery, given the stringent technical and security requirements of our clients in the financial services industry.
As you gain more experience, you will also take part in the development of reusable product components and libraries and methodologies that will be deployed by other ConsenSys teams around the world.
