Amazon is looking for a blockchain lead

Amazon Building

Passionate about blockchain? Then you may be a fit! Amazon is looking for a blockchain expert, with the tech titan wanting someone who is passionate and about blockchain and decentralized networks.

The job posting published on the company’s employment portal details that the firm is looking for someone who can build innovative business use cases across the decentralized finance space and lead blockchain innovation.

Amazon is essentially looking for a “Head of Product” here with a comprehensive blockchain and cryptocurrency background.

The technology giant already has Amazon Managed Blockchain (AMB), and the product has a full team backing it as well. But this latest posting seems to be for something that involves use cases across DeFi, supply chain, financial services, identity, and more.

The description reads:

“The candidate will have a track record delivering outstanding products at scale in emerging spaces, and is passionate about blockchain, distributed systems, and cloud scale software. Ideally you will have experience delivering products or innovations in the blockchain space, and in particular Defi or Traditional Financial Services.”

Interested applicants are required to have a BS or BA degree, and the company prefers someone with a degree in computer science. A decade of experience in the field of product management will also serve in good stead.

This is, of course, not the first expert job listing posted by Amazon. It added one back in February where the ecommerce giant was looking to build a pilot project in Mexico.

That posting has since been taken down.

We’ll likely see real soon what kind of business use cases Amazon is interested in building tethered to the rapidly exploding decentralized finance space.
