In late 2013, Joseph Lubin co-founded the Ethereum Project, and has been working on Ethereum and more recently ConsenSys since January 2014.
ConsenSys began as a blockchain production studio building decentralized applications, mostly on Ethereum. Many of those components are core elements that can be used to construct larger solutions as well as being standalone solutions in their own right. Since ConsenSys began operations before the Ethereum ecosystem existed, ConsenSys has also built core infrastructure elements like Ethereum clients, testing frameworks, rapid application development frameworks, and Integrated Development Environments.
ConsenSys Enterprise, the professional services arm, works with various enterprises to help them formulate their blockchain strategy and develop business processes for them on private or consortium blockchains, as well as on the public Ethereum network.
Prior to Ethereum, Lubin’s career has involved various posts in the fields of technology and finance and in their intersection. Subsequent to graduating cum laude with a degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Princeton, he worked as research staff in the Robotics Lab at Princeton and then at Vision Applications, Inc. in the fields of autonomous mobile robotics, machine vision and artificial neural networks.
