56 in total, with 34 that include the tech in the job title. In what is quite possibly a record for any company in the crypto market, JPMorgan Chase has an array of job positions posted on its website.
The US mega bank has been noted for its enthusiastic blockchain hiring in the past.
In contrast to these 56 blockchain jobs that show up in search results, Goldman Sachs, which recently restarted its crypto trading desk, has just 2 blockchain and cryptocurrency job openings. Likewise, Morgan Stanley also has 2 blockchain open positions.
While BNY Mellon shows 4 positions with blockchain and digital assets in the title.
As noted, the majority of these job postings were posted this month and the last, and are situated in the United States, Singapore, and India. And many of them relate directly to Onyx, the division the company created last October to oversee JPM Coin — this is the bank’s wholesale payments token.
When Onyx was launched, JPMorgan said that the new division had about 100 jobs.
A number of blockchain engineer roles are focused on integrating both JPM Coin and Liink into the bank’s payments architecture. Liink was previously known as the blockchain based Interbank Information Network, and now counts more than 400 other banks as participants.
JPMorgan is building its JPM Coin and Liink system on Quorum, which has now been handed over to New York based Ethereum hub Consensys.
