America’s most ubiquitous retailer, walmart announced Monday that it is looking for a cryptocurrency product lead that will help the company develop a digital currency strategy.
Walmart said a job posting posted on LinkedIn a few hours ago is “looking for a visionary leader” to fill the leadership position of its so-called digital currency and cryptocurrency products. The person would create a digital currency strategy for the big store.
“You will be responsible for developing the digital currency strategy and product roadmap,” the ad reads. “As an expert in digital currency/cryptocurrency and Blockchain-related technologies, you drive the vision for the product and capabilities roadmap.”
The store in its ad also said it would expect the crypto expert to “identify crypto-related investments and partnerships”.
The ad did not mention what product the person would be launching. The job posting was published weeks after rumors circulated that Walmart’s rival Amazon was poised to make a big entry into the crypto market. Amazon has its own vacancy for a product leader in digital currencies and blockchain.
Amazon also announced last month that hire a digital currency and blockchain product leader for his payments team, according to a new job posting. First reported by Insider.
