Role of Video and Design:
ConsenSys is an increasingly complex organization, touching practically every aspect of blockchain technology. The role of the video and design team is to translate that complexity into a cohesive narrative with engaging and aesthetically pleasing communications products, in order to increase the awareness of blockchain in general, Ethereum more specifically, ConsenSys as a brand, and ConsenSys spokes (incubated projects being built on Ethereum).
The audience for the collateral produced by the team is business, general public, developer, government and academia. The team works closely with ConsenSys Solutions, global and regional teams, and ConsenSys spokes to further our mission of building and scaling a world where distributed applications and the Ethereum world computer enable a new class of frictionless, global commerce with inclusion for all.
- Work with the ConsenSys Graphic Designer, EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), marketing and video teams to define project requirements, identify expectations, develop production timelines, create concepts and art direction
- Create visuals that help our target audiences easily understand the technology and concepts of blockchain
- Utilize photo editing, illustration and typography skills to create visually appealing content and narrative for presentations, events, online and offline collateral
- Create assets for social media and email marketing

- Source freelance designers/illustrators

What Makes Someone Successful in this Role?

- Demonstrated success in taking a service oriented approach and high level of ownership
- Ideally have experience working in a startup environment where you have had to wear many hats at a time (and those hats may change periodically)
- Experience working cross-functionally in a matrix environment and being the connective tissue between many different teams and collaborators
- Ability to travel 15-30% may be required
- Comfortable with a bit of organized chaos
Why this is the Opportunity of a Lifetime?
