Visa Is Looking At Ripple And Ethereum Devs For Global Blockchain Payments
The mass adoption of cryptos and blockchain technology has been one of the main goals that the industry has set and there have been a lot of moves made in this direction.
The achievements continue despite the fact that we are in the middle of a global crisis that’s triggered by the pandemic.
Visa is looking for Ethereum and Ripple developers
Visa is looking for Ethereum devs to help build a global blockchain payments network.
A brand new job advertisement by the payment processing giant on the New Zealand site, the firm is looking for a “strong developer experienced with Ethereum and blockchain architecture” to join its Global Commercial Payments team, working on distributed applications.
“Our ideal candidate has built and released distributed applications, has worked with the Ripple, R3, Ethereum and/or Bitcoin blockchain, and has experience with Solidity,” states the ad.
Decrypt notes that the successful applicants will be tasked with working on Visa’s generically titled, “Non-Card based payment innovation and product.”
It’s important to note the fact that even if the ad’s focus seems to be on developers who have experience of Ethereum, the Visa blockchain payment product may not be using the Ethereum test, nor Ripple/Bitcoin which were also named in that ad.
The same online publication mentioned above also noted that one of Visa’s five stated “priority verticals” for the Global Commercial Payments team is listed as “Hyperledger chain-code development in Go-lang.”
