Fidelity Investment posts 9 job offers for its digital asset wing

Thu, 16 May 2019, 07:18 am UTC

American multinational financial services corporation Fidelity Investments is looking for talented individuals for its institutional-grade crypto custody wing, Fidelity Digital Assets, as posted on the company’s careers page.

The Massachusetts-based firm opened nine positions for interested applicants. It is seeking a product designer, an analyst or senior analyst for trade support and settlement operations, a customer service representative, a senior data engineer, blockchain software engineer, and directors. It is also hiring vice presidents for solutions architecture and information security officer.

Most of the job listings are intended for Boston, Massachusetts. Some require experiences in cryptographic protocols, cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology, public blockchain platform development, software and network infrastructure deployment, and money movement. One job even needs a sense of humor.

Last month, Coinbase’s former U.S. Head of Sales Christine Sandler joined Fidelity Digital Assets as the head of Sales and Marketing. She will take the lead to drive the company’s expansion to new markets and target more institutional clients.

The hiring of new talent coincides with the digital asset unit's plan to launch cryptocurrency trading within a few weeks, as reported by Bloomberg. The company is poised to open its trading service to institutional investors.

We currently have a select set of clients we’re supporting on our platform,” Arlene Roberts, spokeswoman of Fidelity, said in an e-mail to Bloomberg. “We will continue to roll out our services over the coming weeks and months based on our clients’ needs, jurisdictions, and other factors.

Founded last October, Fidelity Digital Assets revealed its plan early this year to introduce OTC (over-the-counter) trading and order routing for Bitcoin.
