Microsoft Is Looking For A Web 3.0 Product Manager As Its Crypto Expansion Accelerates.
Microsoft continues to bolster its position in the cryptocurrency and blockchain area by introducing a vacancy for Web 3.0 and Blockchain Principal Product Manager.
According to the job posting, which was placed on the company’s website on June 6, the successful individual would be a member of the Microsoft Cloud for Industry Growth and Expansion Team (MCIGET). The major responsibility of this post will be to ‘bring clarity, generate energy, and deliver success for Microsoft in blockchain and crypto.’
Other tasks include dealing with external blockchain and cryptocurrency ISVs to build on the Microsoft Cloud. The candidate will also be responsible for helping to refine Microsoft’s overall blockchain and crypto strategy and implementation.
The role requires experience in crypto, blockchain, distributed ledgers, or Web 3.0, as well as conceptual knowledge of modern encryption.
Overall, the team’s growth compliments the company’s recent efforts to incorporate cryptocurrency into its existing products. According to the firm:
“The blockchain and crypto market presents Microsoft with an opportunity to grow usage of our tools, platforms, and products in new ways and with new customers. We can apply lessons learned from prior blockchain work to guide engagement with partners who extend these technologies into their industries.”
Microsoft has been strategically hiring to grow its cryptocurrency and blockchain teams in recent months. In February, for example, the software company announced the post of Director of Crypto Business Development. The successful hire was to help create the groundwork for Microsoft’s Web 3.0 strategy.
According to an analysis of the hiring binge, the corporation is steadily establishing itself as a significant player in emerging technologies such as Web 3.0.
After successfully acquiring video gaming corporation Activision Blizzard for $95.00 per share, the company has already showed interest in going into virtual worlds. The transaction is slated to finalize in 2023 and will be critical in the company’s transition to the metaverse.
