Posted on Friday, May 31, 2024

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 Diligence

Consensys Diligence helps developers and smart contract architects to build more secure blockchain and smart contract applications. Our full remote team, distributed all over the world, is supporting the high demand for smart contract audits in the ever growing ecosystem. We are proud to help a fast growing list of clients, including major financial institutions, corporates and crypto / DeFi native companies such as Aave, 0x, Balancer, Uniswap, Status and many more. Our aim is to make blockchain safer.

We are the creators of the MythX security analysis service, the Scribble runtime verification tool for Ethereum smart contracts, and we are leading standard setting industry references and tools, including: SWC Registry, Smart Contract Best Practices, and Blockchain Security Database, Legions (Ethereum/EVM Node Security Toolkit), Solidity Visual Developer VScode extension, and many more.

About the role

We are looking for passionate smart contract security researchers or developers.

Candidates should have a strong understanding of security primitives and be up-to-date with current exploits. Awareness of the current DeFi landscape is a big plus, and experience with exploitation techniques of financial protocols is a valued skill. 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. 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.

Most 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.

Qualifications

  • Experience developing and building on top of DeFi protocols or other smart contracts
  • Experience describing or assessing smart contract specific security risks
  • Demonstrated expertise with Solidity, the EVM, and blockchain
  • Demonstrated ability to work well with clients, and communicate clearly and concisely in a written format

Nice to haves

  • A portfolio of blog posts or presentations on DeFi or security related topics
  • Experience working in the Financial sector or as a financial analyst
  • Publicly visible audit reports in your portfolio
  • BS degree or higher in a relevant field or equivalent practical experience
  • Experience building tooling in javascript, typescript or python
