Amazon wants to hire a digital currency and blockchain product lead

E-commerce giant Amazon appears set to toe the digital currency waters, outlining a blockchain-specific role in a new job ad.

The job spec appears wide-ranging, mentioning "central bank digital currencies" and "distributed ledger" among other catch-all phrases for digital currency applications.

"You will leverage your domain expertise in Blockchain, Distributed Ledger, Central Bank Digital Currencies and Cryptocurrency to develop the case for the capabilities which should be developed, drive overall vision and product strategy, and gain leadership buy-in and investment for new capabilities. You will work closely with teams across Amazon including AWS to develop the roadmap including the customer experience, technical strategy and capabilities as well as the launch strategy," the post explains.
