The e-commerce business is looking to fill a number of roles in the non-fungible token (NFT) and Web3 technology sector, according to job posts on Linkedin from Ebay.
This comes after Ebay purchased Knownorigin, an NFT marketplace, and the business filed trademark applications for a number of NFT and metaverse services in the same month.
Jobs like "crypto counsel," "head of community" for Knownorigin, and "marketing campaign executive" are among the new postings.
So far, 31 candidates have applied for the post of head of community during the past 24 hours, 37 candidates have applied for the marketing role, and 17 candidates have applied for the crypto attorney position.
The responsibilities of the crypto attorney include keeping abreast of regulatory changes, collaborating with internal Ebay teams, and offering legal counsel and assistance on NFTs, blockchain, and Web3 problems.
The executive overseeing the Knownorigin marketing strategy must raise awareness and possess in-depth knowledge of the Web3 environment. This is consistent with the remarks made last February 2022 about NFTs by Jamie Iannone, president and CEO of Ebay.
“Ebay will be the place where people trade goods, whether they be physical or digital,” Iannone said at the time. The latest Linkedin job offer from Amazon, which indicates that the online retailer is seeking a Senior Web3 GTM Specialist in particular, was followed by Ebay's employment posts.
The post of Web3 GTM specialist at Amazon received about 41 applications. This person would be "responsible for expanding adoption of Web3 workloads on AWS."
