Amazon to hire blockchain employees with DeFi experience

Amazon is looking for employees with experience in decentralized finance (DeFi), according to a job ad posted for the head of blockchain products, according to Coindesk. The job ad reads, “Candidates should have a track record of delivering large-scale excellence in emerging areas, a passion for blockchain, distributed systems and cloud-scale software, and experience delivering products or innovations in the blockchain space, specifically DeFi or traditional financial services.” There is speculation that Amazon is looking for employees to build a digital payment token, which appears to be part of an emerging payments program to be piloted in Mexico.
