Investment firm Franklin Templeton is posting two crypto-related job positions.
According to a pair of LinkedIn ads, the firm that holds $1.5 trillion in assets under management is seeking a cryptocurrency trader and a cryptocurrency research analyst.
The asset manager says the trader will mostly trade some of the largest crypto assets by market cap such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).
“We are looking for a Crypto Currency Trader to execute trades for several strategies using the largest, most liquid listed and tradable crypto assets (e.g., BTC, ETH, etc.)”
Franklin Templeton says candidates for the cryptocurrency trader position should possess “knowledge and passion in blockchain protocols / digital currencies and the new businesses they enable.”
As for the cryptocurrency research analyst position, the asset manager says candidates will be required to have a “passion for blockchain protocols / crypto currencies and the new businesses they enable.”
Some of the responsibilities of the successful applicant will include providing “research coverage for the largest, most liquid listed and tradable crypto assets (e.g., BTC, ETH, etc.)”. The successful applicant will also be “expected to help develop and manage new products in the crypto asset space.”
In July, Franklin Templeton CEO Jenny Johnson said crypto assets and blockchain technology will dramatically shake up the financial services industry.
“The tokenization and blockchain are going to be hugely disruptive to the financial services industry. We are at the very, very early stages of that.
I’m not even sure folks completely understand how disruptive that could be. It is something I’m spending a lot of time on — my team is spending a lot of time — just trying to think about and understand.”
Franklin Templeton’s crypto-related job postings comes nearly two months after financial services giant Fidelity Investments announced that it would increase the workforce at its cryptocurrency unit by 70%.Don't Miss a Beat – Subscribe to get crypto email alerts delivered directly to your inbox
