Description

ConsenSys is a venture production studio focused on building and scaling tools and enterprise software products powered by Ethereum. Our mission is to use these solutions to power the emerging economic, social, and political operating systems of the planet.

Our teams are busy at work building the future of identity, financial markets, commerce, the music industry, security and infrastructure, and more. As a ConsenSys intern, you will be embedded with one of our product teams and receive 1-to-1 mentorship while making real contributions towards building the Internet of tomorrow. Past ConsenSys interns have:

- Contributed theoretical research to the Ethereum Foundation
- Published among the earliest decompositions of the DAO hack
- Helped INFURA scale to serve more than 40 million requests per day
- Contributed code to uPort, Boardroom, Weifund, the Proof-of-Physical-Address project, and the original Ujo Music prototype?one of the most heavily transacted-with smart contracts in the first six months of the Ethereum mainnet.

About RAPID:

RAPID is a team within ConsenSys focused on the building of quick and dirty technological solutions to bring the ideas of the Mesh to life.

Through the collective consciousness of the Mesh, an immense backlog of unbelievable ideas has been amassed. The most promising of these ideas require further exploration, to determine their potential worth and/or merit. Instead of developing a dedicated spoke or circle around each of these ideas, the goal of RAPID is to quickly tackle the exploration of these ideas through RAPID development, deployment, and internal dogfooding of technological solutions ? to prove their worth before further investment of time and resources is allocated.

Through this RAPID prototyping process, we are additionally laying the groundwork for the quick and easy deployment of dApps in general. Because our specialty is moving fast, we are simultaneously building the tools and processes which allow others to move fast along with us towards a decentralized future.

Responsibilities:

- Work closely with our team to RAPIDly deliver new offerings and a great UX.
- Help plan and develop the technical direction of new offerings.
- Assume ownership of specific components and features, and build them from start to finish (with support from the RAPID team).
- Write readable, maintainable code that is built to scale.
- Stay up-to-date on technical options and help select the right technology for each task.
