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.

The MetaMask Delivery Team

The MetaMask Delivery Team is focused on software delivery for our Extension and Mobile platforms. There are many teams at MetaMask building a range of features - teams for Accounts, Swaps, Confirmations, Snaps, etc - and they all build their code on and release their features through our Extension and Mobile products. Our team is responsible for ensuring these teams are able to consistently and frictionlessly deliver their features through and throughout the software delivery lifecycle, to the users of these products.

To achieve that, we have a primary responsibility of managing and facilitating the Extension and Mobile release processes. A majority of our time is spent on this, and it requires oversight, coordination and hands on action in support of release planning, quality assurance, branch management and store submission.

In addition, we support, advise and unblock teams at earlier stages of the delivery lifecycle (e.g. planning, development, PR review, code merge). We do this by supporting and troubleshooting the use of the tools, processes, development environments and automations that make up our software delivery systems. As such, we need to be responsive day-to-day to any challenges that are slowing down or blocking any team’s ability to move code and features forward towards
