As the blockchain ecosystem keeps evolving, it only seems natural more and more companies will look for expert developers to bridge the gap between digital currency and the financial world. One of the more recent job postings on the Coinality platform, which is posted on behalf of Northern Trust, specifically mentions how they are looking for a Senior Java developer with knowledge about Ethereum and Bitcoin.
Northern Trust Embarks On Blockchain Mission
People active in the world of finance will have heard of Northern Trust [Nasdaq: NTRS] before, as this publicly traded company is focusing on bringing innovative investment technology to their partners. It comes as little to no surprise to find out this enterprise has been keeping an eye on the progress of blockchain technology in recent years.
However, the company is taking active steps towards embracing distributed ledger technology, as they have posted a new job listing for a Senior Java/UI Developer. What makes this particular posting so interesting is how applications will need experience developing blockchain-based solutions within the Bitcoin or Ethereum ecosystems.
To be more precise, the Shared Services development group of Northern Trust is expanding their team, and their new projects will revolve around blockchain technology. For a company looking to bring investment technology to its partners, innovation is a driving factor, and there is hardly anything more innovation than blockchain technology right now.
The person selected for the Northern Trust opening will be a part of the full software development lifecycle of these blockchain projects, which is where their expertise with Bitcoin and Ethereum starts paying off. Moreover, this is a full-time position, rather than a freelance or one-time opportunity, and interested applicants should keep in mind relocation to Chicago, IL might be required.
Considering how Northern Trust is an established player in the world of financial technologies, their interest in blockchain technology is a significant step for the digital currency ecosystem. Although the company does not seem inclined to embrace Bitcoin or Ether anytime soon, referring to both of these digital currency ecosystems is a positive note.
