The world's largest payment network is looking for a developer with knowledge of Ethereum to work on a new blockchain-based application.

  • Visa's job posting, first reported by Decrypt, says the payments giant is looking for a blockchain engineer with at least two years' experience with blockchain architecture, and decentralized applications (dapps).
  • The successful candidate will join Visa B2B – its blockchain-based cross border payments platform that launched last June – at the company's global headquarters.
  • The new hire will work as part of a team building a new "distributed application."
  • Although primarily focused on Ethereum, the company is also interested in developers with knowledge building on Bitcoin, Ripple, or the R3 enterprise blockchain.
  • Visa processes up to 150 million transactions worldwide every day, making it the largest payment network in the world.
  • A former member of the Libra Association, Visa has expressed an interest in the potential for well-regulated blockchains to radically overhaul payments systems in emerging and developing markets.
  • The job ad doesn't provide any more information on what the mentioned distributed application could be.
  • After publication, a Visa spokesperson told CoinDesk the position was no longer open.
