- Advertising data set to be integrated onto blockchain systems
Amazon is looking for a senior software engineer to integrate its online advertising on blockchain technology. The job opening published on the company’s LinkedIn page will push forward the company’s growth in online advertising. The senior software manager is set to work in Amazon’s ad fintech team that focuses on integration of “blockchain ledgers, billing, and reconciliation systems” – all with an aim to improve data transparency.
The new team is based in Boulder, Colorado offering new fintech based solutions to transnational financial data and helping the e-commerce giant gain a foothold in the blockchain industry.
The job posting states the job is more about creativity and idealization, with some tasks listed for the job including; lead design, implementation and deployment of core components; interface with engineers and Program Managers on dependent teams and be responsible for the operational support and maintenance of the systems.
One of the company’s representatives said the company have nothing more to share at the time as Amazon keeps its blockchain endeavors rather secret.
A Clear Path For Amazon?
The ad world is slowly adopting blockchain technology in a bid to streamline the industry. A number of companies are integrating adverts on to the blockchain to record data and track how much advertising is actually relevant and cutting out middlemen. Media Blockchain pilot, an ad blockchain, recently announced McDonald’s, Virgin Media and Nestle to improve their opaque digital advertising structure.
Despite the continued rally towards blockchain, Amazon is not looking to launch its cryptocurrency as it does not “deal in the speculative”. In June, the VP of Amazon Pay, Patrick Gauthier, stated that the company is not looking to build its own crypto coin despite its abilities to do so.
Amazon’s subsidiary, Amazon Web Services (AWS) built the Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB) – a centrally administered immutable data ledger. Using the AWS Managed blockchain service users will be able to connect with Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric on the platform.
