More companies are looking toward the future of the internet, as eBay and Amazon both post job listings for Web3-related job roles.
The space of Web3 is intended to be the new version of the internet; a better internet. One where users can utilise the power of blockchain and crypto to give power back to those who use its services and form true ownership. Many are yet to explore the concept of Web3, and others are confused by it.
However, there’s no denying its existence and its growth potential. At its core, Web3 is based on the idea of a decentralised internet. This in turn makes ownership a key selling point for these projects. With more people looking to explore the decentralised space, we are now seeing bigger companies expand their presence.
A wider Web3
It seems that eBay is hiring across multiple positions within Web3 for its Known Origin NFT marketplace. Various listings such as Crypto Counsel, Head of Community and a marketing executive have appeared on sites such as LinkedIn. The Crypto Counsel role is posted as a Hybrid, full-time role. This position would handle legal advice regarding NFTs, blockchain and other matters for Known Origin.
It’s not just Ebay on the prowl for new staff. Amazon has also taken to LinkedIn to scout for a Senior GMT Specialist. The job advertisement notes that Amazon Web Services is looking for, “Individuals in the Web3 Go-To-Market team that is responsible for growing adoption of Web3 workloads on AWS.” Amazon Web Services has created tools for blockchain companies and the specialist role would be responsible for growing its services through the cloud computing division.
Gaming is playing a large role within the space of Web3 as its decentralised nature is allowing players to have a sense of ownership within the games they play. ImmutableX is a popular platform for Web3 projects, with some big-name brands choosing the platform. In addition, we are seeing various companies explore Web3 with the likes of Porsche releasing NFTs.
