Online Marketplace Amazon Hopes to Hire a Head of Product to Lead Blockchain Innovation
The worldâ€™s largest online marketplace Amazon is seemingly watching blockchain innovations and current defi platforms make waves in the world of finance. Since the firmâ€™s inception, Amazon has disrupted the online world via technological innovation and now it wants someone to help with blockchain technology.
The company posted a job listing this week that shows Amazon is looking for a â€œHead of Productâ€ with a comprehensive blockchain and cryptocurrency background. The business already has a product called the â€œAmazon Managed Blockchain (AMB)â€ and a team behind the project as well.
â€œCome join us to head product on the Amazon Managed Blockchain team,â€ Amazonâ€™s job listing states. â€œAmazon Managed Blockchain (AMB) is a fully managed service that accelerates customersâ€™ ability to create and leverage scalable blockchain technology for current and innovative business use cases across Defi, Supply Chain, Financial Services, Identity, and more. We are looking for an experienced product leader to drive the vision, roadmap, feature definition and go-to-market strategy of the AWS product offering across the rapidly evolving and broad landscape of blockchain technology and use cases.â€
Interested applicants are required to have a BS or BA degree, over a decade of experience in the field of product management experience and the company prefers someone with a degree in computer science. Amazonâ€™s job listing description adds:
Not the First Job Listing Seeking Blockchain Help
â€œThis product will enable customers to convert their cash in to digital currency using which customers can enjoy online services including shopping for goods and/or services like Prime Video,â€ the Amazon job listing explained at the time.
The listing from February has since been removed from the e-commerce firmâ€™s employment web portal.
