Pain points

The Challenge

Blockchain technology is still relatively new, and the talent pool is somewhat limited. This can make hiring for any blockchain-focused position more challenging.

Additionally, as ConsenSys is a major player in the Ethereum ecosystem, they need to maintain a high standard in their hires to ensure the quality and security of their products, adding another layer of complexity to the hiring process.


MetaMask is a crypto wallet and gateway to blockchain apps. Hiring challenge include:

Finding developers with solid knowledge and experience in blockchain technology, Ethereum, and related technologies.

It may be difficult to find developers who understand and can work with Web3, the decentralized internet powered by the blockchain.

Security is a critical aspect of any cryptocurrency application, so finding professionals with expertise in cybersecurity could be challenging.

Ensuring new hires align with the open-source, privacy-focused ethos of the project might be another challenge.


Quorum is an enterprise-focused version of Ethereum. Some possible hiring challenges could be:

The need for developers experienced with both Ethereum and enterprise software solutions.

Hiring individuals who understand the balance between blockchain's open, decentralized nature and the privacy and control needs of enterprises can be challenging.

A broad knowledge base is needed, as enterprise solutions can be complex, often requiring integration with various other business systems.

It can be challenging to find individuals who are skilled in both consensus mechanisms (Raft-based and Istanbul BFT in Quorum) used in private and permissioned business consortiums.


Codefi is a blockchain application suite for commerce and finance. Hiring challenges might include:

Locating professionals who understand both traditional finance/commerce and decentralized finance (DeFi) concepts.

Hiring individuals with experience in smart contracts, given that many DeFi products revolve around them.

It can be difficult to find individuals who can handle the regulatory complexities in the intersection of blockchain and traditional finance.
