About Protocols

Within Consensys, the Protocols team has a range of products and projects that support the Ethereum ecosystem. Alongside Java open-source communities, we are continuing to develop Ethereum core clients Hyperledger Besu (execution client) and Teku (consensus client).

Besu and Teku can be used separately or together to participate in Ethereum Mainnet, and are increasingly used by solo and institutional stakers alike.

Besu and Teku teams are both looking for a Senior Blockchain Protocol Engineer!
