Nasdaq Hiring For Blockchain Developer Indicates Progress On Its Bitcoin Futures Plan


Nasdaq is working on its plan to launch bitcoin futures and, has recently posted a job opening on LinkedIn for senior software developer with a deep interest in Blockchain and Machine learning. This opening indicates that Nasdaq is working diligently and could be executing its crypto plans in time.

Nasdaq hiring for a division that provides a solution to capital markets

According to the job description put forward by Nasdaq, the exchange is looking for Senior Software Developer, who can design, develop, modify, adapt and implement solutions to the exchange’s information technology needs by means of new and existing applications, system architecture and application infrastructure.

The post also states that the candidate will be working for the “Enterprise Architecture and Innovation group in Boston” which focuses on cutting-edge technologies and solutions for the capital markets. This group is actively engaged in building solutions in blockchain and machine learning space.

Under the requirements section, the post speaks about the following:

  • A strong computer science background in algorithms, compilers and database systems. Deep interest and knowledge in Blockchain and Machine learning.
  • Experience in full stack development using NodeJs, ReactJs, and big data stores like MongoDB and Cassandra

Since, the vacancy is in the department which looks after the capital market solutions, in all probability it seems the hiring is for the project of bitcoin futures which the exchange had announced in November.

According to a representative from the investment management firm, Nasdaq had earlier announced its partnership with VanEck to launch cryptocurrency products, including derivatives.

In October 2018, the exchange had also announced Nasdaq’s Financial Framework will be integrated with Microsoft’s Azure blockchain to build a platform that does not rely on one particular distributed ledger.

The hiring looks a progressive step in Nasdaq crypto endeavors. With the top exchange slowly building its crypto army, is a positive sign for the complete eco-system. How and when these projects will be executed is something the community has to wait for.

Will Nasdaq open up more positions for blockchain and crypto positions? Do let us know your views on the same.
