Amazon has opened employment position for senior software engineer for its “Advertising FinTech team focused on a Blockchain ledger,” according to a recent job posting.
The blockchain team will work on billing and reconciliation systems to provide transparency on trans-national financial data, the job description says.
It is not clear yet the type of blockchain Amazon intends to use for advertising. Previously, the blockchain team at Amazon Web Services, the company’s cloud business, built a proprietary blockchain known as the Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB), and AWS’ Managed Blockchain service connects with Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric.
As a reminder, back in April, crypto owners got the opportunity to shop directly on Amazon.com from Coinbase account or via Lightning Network thanks to a new browser extension called Moon. Moon offered an alternative payment method including Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ether or Bitcoin Cash.
