Reddit Seeks Senior Engineer for Platform That Features 'NFT-Backed Digital Goods'

On Friday, American social news aggregation and discussion website, Reddit published a job listing seeking a senior backend engineer for a non-fungible token (NFT) platform. As part of Reddit’s development team, the new hire would help “design, build and ship backend services for millions of users to create, buy, sell and use NFT-backed digital goods.”

Reddit’s Job Application Is Looking for a Senior Engineer for a Possible NFT Platform

Reddit seems to be in the midst of creating a non-fungible token (NFT) feature on its platform and from a recent job description it seems to be a marketplace. Reddit is seeking a “senior backend engineer” for its “NFT platform,” the recently added job listing explains.

Reddit has already dipped its feet into cryptocurrency solutions and blockchain technology by leveraging Ethereum and Arbitrum. The job listing for a new engineer dedicated to NFT technology has a different focus than the firm’s community points system.

“If there is one thing we’ve noticed with NFTs, they too have an incredible power to create a sense of participation and belonging,” Reddit’s job post details. “With every new NFT project, a vibrant community of owners pops up with it. Fans of today’s biggest creators and brands are now flocking to buy digital goods directly from them — to support them, to gain exclusive access, and to feel a greater sense of connection with them.”

The company’s job listing adds:

Over time, we believe this will only grow, and NFTs will play a central role in how fans support their favorite creators and communities.

Reddit: ‘Experience With Crypto / NFTs / Go Not Required’

While the job description has multiple requirements like over five years of backend development experience, experience with cryptocurrencies, NFTs and the programming language Go is “not required.”

The backend, however, definitely will be dedicated to non-fungible token (NFT) services. The new senior backend engineer for the NFT platform will “design, build and ship backend services for millions of users to create, buy, sell and use NFT-backed digital goods,” Reddit’s listing notes.

Furthermore, the Reddit job listing explains that the company is accommodating in regards to the pandemic and the job can be done from a remote location.
