Rob Dawson

Chief Technology Officer


Washington State

IT Developer and Leader with experience in a wide range of technologies, including thin and thick clients, agile and heavy methodologies, security and protocols. At ConsenSys I have the privilege of helping to bring in the web3 future and it is amazing. I get to help bring web3 software to direct users, and to empower developers to build on web3. In my role as CTO I'm helping ConsenSys Software to work together to build the web3 future. There are two things I'm passionate about in my career. Building useful software, and helping my teams to do the same. I love working through new ideas, and helping the teams I'm working with to skill up and implement. I've done this in a mix of individual contributor and leadership roles. There are good challenging problems to solve in both, and I enjoy solving them with teams either in more of a management role or directly.
