About ConsenSys Diligence

About the role
We are looking for experienced smart contract developers with a strong understanding of finance, and the decentralized finance ecosystem in particular. You should have a deep understanding of the most essential money legos (tokens, decentralized exchanges, oracles, lending protocols, and an awareness of what can go wrong when they are composed to create new DeFi products. In addition, you should be familiar with the language of traditional finance, and understand the design of financial products such as lending, options, futures, etc.
You should also be aware of how the EVM works, and the idiosyncrasies which can lead to vulnerabilities when developers don’t properly understand them. However, for this role we are focusing on a strong DeFi skill set, and we are willing to teach the auditing and verification methodologies we use in our security work. You will have the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the brightest minds in the space, to see how we approach hacking, threat modelling, scanning, auditing, designing and enhancing the security of smart contracts across the board.
Alongside client work, we also provide you with plenty of time for research and development efforts where you can push the state of the art and science of blockchain security.
A significant part of the work can be done remotely from wherever you are; little travel is anticipated (most of the team works remotely around the world). Along with a focus on technical excellence, we also believe firmly that culture and processes play an essential role in security.
We are looking for exceptionally intellectual, bright and technically driven individuals who can communicate their ideas clearly while working with clients to achieve their security objectives.
