US Department of Commerce Crypto Expert wanted! The Department of Commerce is looking to hire a computer scientist – the salary is six figures!
According to the job listing, the Department of Commerce is seeking someone with at least one year of specialized experience in developing blockchain infrastructure and conducting research into blockchain technologies, ledgers, and contracts.
The position will focus on identity management and crypto tokens – although the listing does not outright say it.

The candidate is expected to focus on cybersecurity capabilities and requirements necessary for the successful implementation of emerging technologies. Most importantly, according to the listing, is the idea that identity management with blockchain will be incredibly important for the role.
Applicants should have experience with:
“National and global identity management programs and identity tokens” and in “standards and national and international standards bodies developing identity management, blockchain, and identity token interoperability standards.”
The job listing calls for a short-term vacancy – not to exceed one year. The salary is at $166,500.
Blockchain is increasingly being looked upon as a viable technology to be used by the United States Government.
