Blockchain Engineers Needed For Magic Leap VR Startup
Blockchain technology is making its way into more and more places lately, and there are plenty of companies adding these types of developers to their staff. Magic Leap, a startup that focuses on Virtual Reality, has listed open positions for blockchain engineers, according to the Greenhouse employment website. The specific positions open include a senior blockchain architect and blockchain engineers.
The senior blockchain architect will be directly involved with the “planning and execution of a portfolio” that includes technologies like blockchain, smart contract, and Ricardian contracts. The technologies are used to support the Lifestream implementation.
CEO Rony Abovitz of Magic Leap was recently the subject of an interview with UploadVR, a VR industry publication. During the interview, Abovitz explained that Lifestream is
“all the data that you experience and the data of the world around you and how that needs to be protected.”
While speaking at a conference in October, he spoke on how necessary it is to protect the data set.
Optimally, as stated in the job listing, the individual that Magic Leap chooses to hire will have some kind of experience with the blockchain framework involved in the Hyperledger and Red Belly platforms. They will also need to be familiar with and have experience with Java, Go, Node.js, or Python, along with experience in writing smart contracts with Corda, Hyperledger Sawtooth, Hyperledger Fabric, and Ethereum.
The VR company was only created in 2010, though it has survived through the last nine years by keeping up with the needs of consumers. CrunchBase recently stated that Magic Leap is the top-funded VR startup that the market presently has. In 2018, the company managed to collect 41% of VC funding for the entire market around the world.
This month, digital asset startup Enjin said that they were going to launch a Software Development Kit for the game engine of Unity, which promotes augmented reality app development and supports VR. Enjin is Ethereum-based.
