Job Description

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 Customer Success The Customer Success team provides dedicated, tailor-made support solutions to emerging Consensys ventures. Being a newly formed function within Consensys, the Technical Support Engineer will have ample latitude in shaping and executing a shared customer success vision.

What you’ll do

We are seeking an experienced support engineer with independent problem-solving capabilities. Someone who is eager to become an expert on Consensys blockchain technologies. The candidate will work closely with Customer Success Leaders, internal and external Engineering teams. Your work will ensure the Customer Success team meets all its commitments and has the knowledge and capabilities to deliver best-in-class support to our customers. 

You will be part of our Developer Support team, working with products like Infura or MetaMask. Expect to cover various support request types, from answering simple questions to troubleshooting complex issues on API systems at scale. You need to be comfortable with using logging and tracing tools, troubleshooting customer scripts and reproducing issues. Hence some experience with at least one scripting language is a must (experience with web3 libraries is a big plus). 

Key responsibilities:

  • Respond to technical customer requests in accordance with our SLAs and own them until resolution.
  • Provide valuable customer feedback to the product team and identify opportunities for product improvements or solutions to common issues.
  • Proactively identify, develop and maintain support knowledge documentation.
  • As part of a global support team, working on establishing operational protocols and standards
  • Working in an on-call environment

Qualifications:

  • 2+ years of experience in a technical customer support role
  • Excellent communication skills in English
  • Familiar with issue-tracking tools like Jira, Github or similar
  • Knowledge of web technologies (DNS, HTTP, TCP, TLS, Web services, etc)
  • Knowledge of Linux/Unix system administration, familiarity with concepts and tools involved in modern software development (docker, AWS, Kubernetes, etc)
  • Knowledge of database technologies – MongoDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Redis, etc
  • Understanding of Ethereum and the ecosystem main concepts (L2s, nodes, bridges, RPCs, transactions)

Would be great if you brought this to the role

  • Strong troubleshooting capabilities and the ability to decide and act with minimal guidance
  • Experience in supporting and troubleshooting complex API systems, preferably in a 24/7 setup
  • Comfortable working with monitoring systems like Datadog, Grafana, etc
  • Javascript, Python, Golang, Bash or other scripting experience
  • You’re a MetaMask user and have proven experience with web3 development (a very big plus)

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.
