Amazon is a leading e-commerce business site in the world and dominates the global shopping taking place in the world by a sane figure of 70%. If you are going to buy something online, the chances are that you will end up buying it from Amazon or from another site that buys it from there.
Just like eBay, another leading e-commerce business that has adopted the cryptocurrency and the idea of blockchain to facilities the buyers interested in buying antique items, Amazon wants to do the same and is now looking for a DeFi (decentralized finance) expert. Amazon wants to integrate blockchain technology into its cloud service.
Amazon has posted a job for head of product at Amazon’s blockchain unit or AMB and has invited tenacious candidates from all over the world to apply for the job that entails driving customer success in a transformational space. The selected candidates will be put to enhance the performance of Amazon Web Services or AWS by integrating the blockchain technology and its various use cases.

The main element of the job posting that the candidates have to fulfill if they are interested in the job is to have some blockchain-oriented background; having only the know-how of the cloud technology is not going to cut it as Amazon requires someone who is passionate about blockchain and distributed systems. Defi or having an interest in various other digital finance services is another attribute perfect for the job from the candidate’s side.
Many other tech giants are also coming around the crypto adoption, and it is no surprise that Amazon is doing the same. The only thing that might seem a little out of context is why integrate the blockchain technology with the AWS or web services. Shouldn’t it also be made part of the selling/buying aspect of products on Amazon too? Well, this might be the very next project of Amazon after the successful integration of the blockchain technology into their AWS systems, but nothing could be said for sure at this time.
