The crypto branch of Fidelity Investments, Fidelity Digital Assets, is ready to grow. The company has been reported to be wanting to hire 10 people to its team of blockchain pros. A new job posting indicates that these positions include leadership roles such as vice president, leading software engineer and director.
In case you are not so experienced, don’t give up now, as the company is also hiring software engineers, product designers and people for other technical positions.
It should be noted that the job posting for vice president, for instance, is not really new. It was originally posted back in May but reposted now. The more technical positions, however, are new job posts.
The most high-profile job is “leading solution architect”, which will basically have the rank of vice president and act as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of the company, a very important position. The person will need to create the design, architecture and do the maintenance of the new platform. The service has to be done, of course, following Fidelity’s parameters for security, which are high.
According to the job posting, the most ideal candidate for the role is someone who already has experience in developing for public blockchains (especially either BTC or ETH) and that has experience with private platforms as well.
The director of product management is set to be another senior officer. His job will be to create new crypto offerings as well as to work on maintaining the relationship between the company and its partners. Experience with institutional investors, custody and securities trading will be necessary. Another important experience is to have worked with the regulation before or to know it very well.
There is also the job of product designer, which is set to help in the creation of strategies for the business and usability of the platform, as well as design and research.
Developers can apply to be the software engineering lead of the new company. In order to do it, they need to be experts in these three platforms: Ethereum, Corda and Hyperledger Fabric. This is a management position, so the person will be overseeing other developers.
Someone less experienced can apply to be the new blockchain software engineer of the company. Experience working with both BTC and ETH is needed and this person will evaluate projects and determine the ones that will be used for the company, as well as to develop technology focused on the blockchain.
Finally, there are also jobs which are not necessarily directly related to the blockchain technology: associate analyst, senior analyst for trade support, senior software quality engineer, customer service representative and others.
Fidelity Digital Assets was launched this year and it seems that the company has seen plenty of growth so far, as the need to hire more people have presented itself to the company.
