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.

Key Responsibilities:

We are seeking a highly experienced System Architect to join our team and design and oversee the architecture of our layer 2 zkEVM operator. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in distributed systems and blockchain technology.

  • Design and oversee the architecture of our layer 2 zkEVM operator, ensuring it meets performance, scalability, and security requirements.
  • Work closely with other teams, including development, operations, and security, to ensure the architecture is aligned with business and technical requirements.
  • Research and evaluate new technologies and trends to incorporate into the architecture, such as new consensus algorithms or data storage solutions.
  • Develop and maintain documentation and diagrams of the architecture, including component relationships, data flows, and system interfaces.
  • Act as a technical advisor and subject-matter expert on system architecture and related technologies.
  • Qualifications:
  • Strong background in distributed systems, blockchain technology, and zkEVM.
  • Experience designing and overseeing the architecture of large-scale, complex systems.
  • Strong understanding of system performance, scalability, and security principles.
  • Experience with GoLang, Rust, or similar programming languages.
  • Strong communication and leadership skills.
  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related field.
  • 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.

    The salary range for US-based candidates only will be determined throughout the interview process depending on experience and skills. Candidates should anticipate a base salary (not including bonus, equity or other benefits) of $USD$176,000 - $366,000
