Facebook Needs to Expand New Blockchain Team

Facebook is continuing to expand its recently formed blockchain team under its head, ex-Coinbase director David Marcus.

A team of high profile players from the IT and blockchain/crypto environment is taking shape and with the latest position coming available, Facebook will be searching for some big shoes to fit the role. The latest position on the team is for a Global Brand Development Lead, as described in its rather vague job description:

“Our ultimate goal is to help billions of people with access to things they don’t have now – that could be things like equitable financial services, it could be new ways to save, it could be new ways to share information.”

Facebook mentions that its internal startup is “exploring lots of areas of interest across all facets of blockchain technology”, which appears to be leaving the door ajar for those that feel they might have the attributes to add to the social media’ giants blockchain aspirations at some stage in the future.

With David Marcus the former head of the Facebook messenger app, under whose guidance, its user base exploded to over 1 billion people, and Evan Chang as Blockchain Engineering Director, the company is clearly planning to stake a claim in the industry.

Other roles that need filling as part of Facebook’s blockchain push include a Head of Global Community & Media Director, Head of Brand, Product Marketing Lead, Head of Business Development & Partnerships, Strategic Planning & Operations Lead, Software Engineer, and finally a Software Engineering Manager to be based in Tel Aviv.

Marcus originally intended to create “a small group to explore how to best leverage blockchain for Facebook”, when he made his plans known in May of this year, but Facebook is a big company and the positions advertised demonstrate just how technically unequipped it is for the intended job in hand.
