A key requirement for the job is “experience with blockchain frameworks, technology and applications, including Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric”.

Amazon is still interested in cryptocurrency
Earlier this year, there were rumors of Amazon launching its own cryptocurrency. The company has shown no signs of actually creating one after the experiment in 2013 where they released “Amazon coins”. Although they are not launching their own cryptocurrency, their interest in blockchain technology and DeFi still exists, and it is very likely that Amazon will try to be a dominant player in this space, just like in the other sectors they have been active in.
Amazon isn’t the first company looking for a new employee with DeFi experience. Another company that recently posted a job listing was tech giant Apple.
