Fidelity On A Hiring Spree to ‘Capitalize On Increased Market Demand’ For Digital Assets
Amidst the ongoing market frenzy, Fidelity Digital Assets is looking to hire more than twenty engineers to help them expand its capabilities and “capitalize on increased market demand,” basically to build the “future of finance.”
One of the largest asset managers in the world with $3.3 trillion in assets under management, Fidelity investments first started researching digital assets and blockchain in 2014, and then in 2018, they launched Fidelity Digital Assets. FDA was the companies,
“First step towards a long‐term vision to create a full‐service platform for storing, trading, and supporting digital assets.”
In the past two years, the digital assets market has grown “exponentially,” with more institutions adopting them as part of their portfolios.
So, in this changing landscape, Fidelity wants to improve its bitcoin custody and build new products to support the growing ecosystem. Peter Farland, Chief Technology Officer at Fidelity Digital Assets, said,
“Ultimately, we imagine a future where all types of assets are issued natively on blockchains or represented in a tokenized format.”
The company is hiring engineers with development experience with Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other digital assets for Merrimack, NH, and Boston, MA locations in the US.
The idea is to create secure, interoperable, and scalable products to offer safe and simple investment in Bitcoin and increase digital assets' overall adoption.
