The global KuCoin cryptocurrency exchange has posted a job opening for a Metaverse Engineer, seeking to find a highly qualified specialist.
The job posting includes a long list of prerequisites, outlining the future scope of work for the candidate, indicating the potential direction for KuCoin’s development in blockchain and metaverse space. Among the responsibilities that the successful candidate will have to take on are leading educational initiatives, as well as architecture assessment and selection of metaverse projects presented on the market with subsequent preparation for market fielding. The architect will also be responsible for the design of the metaverse within the KuCoin Metaverse Fund program – a task that is especially relevant in light of the fact that KuCoin Labs, the exchange’s investment and research firm, announced the establishment of a $100 million fund to invest in metaverse projects.
Serious technical expertise is also expected of candidates seeking to apply for the posting. All applicants are required to have solid experience in the creation and implementation of multi-user products based on Blockchain, VR, and AI technologies. Given the specifics of KuCoin’s latest business direction, the architect will also have to have experience in the development of game mechanics and economic systems. Other hard skills that candidates have to possess are the standard mix of comprehension of software frameworks, decentralized architectures, and blockchain cross-operation.
KuCoin has been rapidly permeating into metaverse space. The latest evidence of such complete digitization of the business can be traced in the exchange’s recent announcement that it will soon be opening a virtual office in a 21-floor skyscraper located in the decentralized Bloktopia metaverse. The building is expected to act as a virtual workspace for content creators and blockchain architects for the Polygon and Avalanche networks.
