On the outside, ConsenSys, a leading blockchain company, is on a mission to return trust to the digital world and democratize access to capital. But on the inside, the six-year-old company is dedicated to creating a work environment that’s safe and inclusive for its employees.
In an anonymous FGB review, one employee shared that "ConsenSys is an incredible organization. It is the definition of innovation. If you want to be somewhere that is on a mission and is driven by a deep desire to change the way our world operates — this is the place to work.”
And in the company’s own words: “You can expect inspiring work, lots of autonomy, a mesh of like-minded colleagues and endless encouragement to showcase your creativity in a start-up environment.”
There’s also an “ability to shape your own path” at ConsenSys, according to another employee’s review. Plus, they continued, the culture includes a “huge amount of flexibility with regards to hours, where you work and how you work, which allows each person to bring their best to the workplace everyday.”
We recently got the inside scoop on what differentiates ConsenSys from other companies in the software technology space, plus what female job seekers can expect from growing their careers here. Take a look below.
What is the mission of the company?
Since our founding in 2014, ConsenSys has envisioned growing the Ethereum community into a robust ecosystem of people and products. Six years later, we’ve developed into a global formation of world-class developers, entrepreneurs, enterprise leaders, security experts, lawyers and more who are working together to lay the foundations for a decentralized future.
Our mission is to assemble the tools needed to build and scale the emerging economic, social and political operating system for the planet.
We’re also dedicated to transforming the world’s digital architecture into a more open, inclusive and secure Internet of value, which many are calling Web 3.0. The first phases of the Web allowed users to digitize information and interact online. Now, Web 3.0 is enabling everyone from local communities to global enterprises to transact with efficiency, transparency and most importantly, trust.
What are its core values?
Transparency, Empowerment, and Feedback.
What differentiates the organization from others in this space/industry?
ConsenSys is filled with some of the brightest thought-leaders, entrepreneurs, industry experts and developers who are solving the most complex problems associated with building the sturdiest foundation for automated, objective trust and enable a global asset settlement layer.
We are first-movers in the blockchain industry and since forming, have built developer tools that have been adopted across the Ethereum ecosystem. We’ve also incubated and accelerated Ethereum startups that are launching products across industries, from finance to supply chain to law.
Similar to our technology, ConsenSys also equips and encourages teams to create their own governance models based on principles of transparency, feedback and autonomy.
