Fidelity seeks blockchain engineer for Digital Assets launch

Fidelity is in the market for a senior blockchain software engineer to join its soon-to-launch Digital Assets unit.

Fidelity is in the final testing phase for its new cryptocurrency custody and trading platform after announcing its plans to enter the market in October last year. The investment house is currently putting the platform through its paces with a handful of selected institutional clients.

Fidelity says the new business will offer custody and execution services for the emerging class of digital assets, including bitcoin and ethereum, and other digital asset classes in the future such as stocks and bonds issued on public or private blockchains.

In its ad for a senior blockchain software engineer, Fidelity states: "You would be responsible for bringing new technologies on these networks to our technology stack as the ecosystem evolves. This might include new blockchains or assets issued on other blockchains, or new ways to use existing blockchains by adding second layers (Lightning/Plasma) or Sidechains."

The successful candidate will be expected to create wallet software and integrations for bitcoin, ethereum, and digital assets on their respective networks and to develop blockchain-based solutions for the wider business.
