Walmart Inc. is seeking to hire a cryptocurrency expert, joining a growing number of companies looking to develop strategies for digital currencies such as bitcoin.
The retailer posted a job for a digital-currency and cryptocurrency product lead based at its Bentonville, Ark., headquarters. The hire would be expected to “commit to a product roadmap and drive the project execution” and serve as an expert on the job’s subject matter, according to the posting.
The job posting says the person it hires will “identify customer needs and translate them into product requirements” and that he or she will work with product and design teams.
Amazon Inc. in July similarly posted an opening for an expert in digital currency.
Walmart didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
