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.
Infura is the leading infrastructure platform providing scalable and easy-to-use APIs and cloud solutions for blockchain and decentralized application developers. Infura currently offers APIs for Ethereum, IPFS, and other leading decentralized networks, allowing developers to immediately begin building instead of spending time on architecting and maintaining their own infrastructure.
Infura provides developers instant access to decentralized and blockchain networks without the need to sync or understand complicated peer to peer infrastructure. Similar to how one might access a cloud service to alleviate the friction of owning proprietary compute and storage, Infura lowers the barrier to entry for engineers to begin building.
We believe in a more equitable and decentralized future, and we know developers will be at the forefront of that progress. We want to empower developers to spend their time building, creating, and evolving by providing them with the best and easiest solution to their infrastructure needs.
Some things to know about the Infura team, we are a remote first company, with team members all over the world. We strive to reduce meetings, respect work life balance, promote diversity, and generally be good people. We depend on each other not only to make an amazing product but to be a group that wants to succeed together.
What you’ll do
As the Data lead, you will manage Infura’s data team consisting of Analysts, Data Scientists, and Data Engineers. This is a leadership role so you will use your deep experience managing people to help grow our data talent and mature our data capabilities. This role encompasses 2 sides of the data organization: the analysis side (including data science) and the engineering side. As an engineering lead, you will oversee the development and maintenance of a high quality data platform from which multiple stakeholders in the company can build their insights. As an analytics lead, you will help lead and structure the analysis of data into a collection of data products that foster an empowered / self-service data culture at Consensys. The role comprises three main areas of responsibility: the data roadmap, data governance, and engineering culture.
In managing the roadmap, the data lead will ensure that all commitments are reasonable and achievable. They will work with the analytics and engineering teams to sequence out and deliver all data products and analytics reports. Managing the governance of the data team involves establishing and maintaining the classification of all data managed by Infura, aligning with compliance requirements, and ensuring the data lifecycle is adhered to. Managing the engineering culture of the team will involve establishing and implementing best practices, incorporating principles of software engineering, and ensuring the continuity of engineering excellence within the data engineering team. The data lead will manage multiple stakeholder relationships both internal to Infura as well across the Consensys organization.
Would be great if you brought this to the role
You have at least 5-7 years of experience leading complex projects. You have 3-5 years of experience managing people. You have a deep understanding of servant leadership and have had success growing the skills of your past teams. You come from an engineering background and have shaped the engineering culture of past teams. You have hands-on experience with systems in our data stack including Redshift, Airflow, EMR / Pyspark, streaming systems like Kinesis, and Data Lake implementations. An understanding of various analytics methodologies and how data products feed into end user analytics will enable you to effectively manage the analytics side of the team.
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.
