Multiple High-Level Positions to Be Hired Within ICE and NYSE's Bakkt Platform

The launch of the New York Stock Exchange’s (NYSE’s) new cryptocurrency platform, Bakkt, has been in the works for quite a while. However, they have kept the public in the loop about exactly what is happening and any new developments. In the most recent news, a new tweet from Bakkt indicates that the exchange will be in the market for eight new higher-up vacancies that need to be filled.

The tweet keeps it simple, just saying, “We’re hiring,” providing users with a link to the careers page on the Bakkt website. Upon entering the website, consumers will find the following opportunities available right now:

  • Director of Blockchain Engineering
    • Locations: Atlanta and New York
  • Blockchain Developer
    • Locations: Atlanta, New York, San Francisco, London, Tel Aviv, and Singapore
  • Director of Security Engineering
    • Location: Atlanta
  • Senior Full Stack Engineer
    • Location: Atlanta
  • Mobile Developer
    • Location: Atlanta
  • Software Development Engineer in Test
    • Location: Atlanta
  • Director of Finance
    • Locations: Atlanta and New York
  • Institutional Sales
    • Locations: New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Tokyo

Predominantly, it looks like the Intercontinental Exchange’s crypto platform will be primarily a group of developer at director and senior levels. As reported by The Block, the crypto platform has already added COO Adam White, who brought his experience with Coinbase along with him.

At the end of the year, the Intercontinental Exchange had said that it “expects to provide an updated launch timeline in early 2019 for the trading, clearing and warehousing” for the Bakkt Bitcoin Daily Futures Contracts. The platform finished a $182.5 million funding round on the same day, involving 12 investors and partners.

So far, there still is not an official launch date for the futures contracts, which has likely been stalled by the current government shutdown, which has entered its 32nd day.

CEO Kelly Loeffler has reassured observers that the company is still on track, saying,

“We’re not standing still as we await regulatory approval by the CFTC for the launch of regulated trading in our crypto markets.”
