Asia Blockchain Review
June 7, 2019

A fintech research institute originally launched by China’s central bank, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC), posted several new job openings in May for blockchain talent on the Chinese recruitment website Lagou.com.

As reported by Cointelegraph, the Shenzhen Fintech Research Institute is tasked with heading development projects related to fintech and digital currency under the auspices of both the central bank and the Shenzhen municipal government.

The three new listings were published as part of a wider recruitment effort, with openings for a total of 29 positions. The institute was specifically looking to fill roles for a blockchain development engineer, a blockchain architect, and a senior technical expert.

The Three Roles

For the role of blockchain engineer, a skill set spanning multiple development languages and coding proficiency was sought, alongside familiarity with big data, cloud computing and distributed systems.

Regarding the role of blockchain architect, a deep understanding of blockchain technology and distributed system architecture design was required, together with experience in designing large-scale institutional information system architectures.

Finally, for the opening of senior technical expert, expected skills included an in-depth knowledge of blockchain, as well as smart contracts, consensus algorithms, P2P protocols, and distributed systems and storage

Additional Openings

In addition to the three blockchain talent roles, the Shenzhen Fintech Research Institute has also been seeking a director of trade finance products, an area in which the PBOC has been innovating over the past year through a series of blockchain-based pilots.

Last year, the PBOC opened four positions for crypto-related professionals at its Digital Currency Institute, seeking engineers to develop a secure big data platform and chip processor for crypto transactions.
