The prospective employee of the Amazon position is expected to encourage those in senior positions at major firms to consider adopting cryptos, stablecoins, central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), asset-backed tokens, security-backed tokens, and nonfungible tokens.
Amazon’s IT service management firm may be considering driving adoption in the digital asset space among its users. Based on an October 30 job posting, Amazon Web Services’ New York office is hiring a Financial Services Specialist who majorly “understands the overall cryptocurrency and digital asset ecosystem,” with a lot of experience in blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT).
According to the company, the new employee will need to work with regulators, capital market operators, and financial institutions to explore how they may benefit from digital asset adoption.
The potential employee is expected to encourage those in senior positions at major global financial institutions to “transform the way they transact digital assets,” including cryptos, CBDCs, security-backed tokens, stablecoins, NFTs, and asset-backed tokens. Furthermore, they must have nearly seven years of experience in financial services business development “with exposure to distributed ledger or blockchain technologies.”
In the past, Amazon has posted job opportunities that need experience in the digital asset space. In February 2021, the online retail giant stated that it was looking for a software development manager in Mexico to enable it to launch “a new payment product” aimed at enabling residents to acquire cryptos with cash so that they could spend the digital currency while shopping on Amazon.
Based on a July report, one Amazon spokesperson had already denied that the firm would start supporting crypto payments line Bitcoin and Ether on its platform. Nevertheless, they stated that the giant retailer was “focused on exploring” the possibility of adopting digital assets.
