Aboutthe Protocols Team
The Protocols and R+D teams at ConsenSys build and maintain many of the ecosystem’s most important public goods and participate in Ethereum’s decentralized R&D.
From its earliest days, ConsenSys has not only developed commercial software for the Ethereum ecosystem, but also contributed technical leadership and resources to advancing the core protocol itself. Today, protocol engineers on four continents manage a suite of open source products including Hyperledger Besu, ConsenSys Teku, the Ethereum 2.0 consensus layer client and the powerful Web3Signer.
Our researchers are also driving core elements of the Ethereum 2.0 roadmap and partner with Core Devs and the Ethereum Foundation to advance research around ZK-Snarks, sharding, bridges, rollups and more. The team’s deep experience building and researching Ethereum protocols is a core differentiator for ConsenSys and presents team members an opportunity to make a stamp on the Ethereum ecosystem from day one.
