Central Bank of Ukraine Seeks to Hire a Blockchain Developer

The blockchain specialist will be involved in the “development, implementation and refining of infrastructure services, highly accessible distributed systems and services (Hyperledger)”, the announcement details. Future employment will focus on the design and development of microservices and integration solutions, development of smart contracts, registries and architectural solutions.

According to the Nagornyuk poster, quoted by Forklog, the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) offers “opportunities for professional development in a stable and transparent organization” and a “market-level reward” with performance-based bonuses. A corporate pension plan and flexible working hours are also part of the benefits.

The monetary authority says it will give its blockchain expert access to training courses and “an opportunity to participate in the country’s development.” This indicates that the person occupying the position will likely adhere to the regulator’s project to create their own digital currency of a central bank (CBDC).

The e-hryvnia project has been running for several years. New legislation opening the door for its publication, the law “On Payment Services”, was adopted by the Ukrainian parliament in June, and later signed by President Volodymyr Zelensky. The bill gives the NBU rights to create a digital version of the sovereign decree currency.

A survey conducted among financial professionals this year showed that the industry favors blockchain design for the digital hryvnia, which would allow interlocutory transfers, burn e-commerce and use to facilitate transactions in the crypto space. The central bank has stated that the application of its CBDC in the virtual assets sector is worth further research.

Meanwhile, Ukraine’s Ministry of Digital Transformation revealed in August that it plans to use the electronic hryvnia to pay its employees once the currency is available for testing. According to a recent statement by Arsen Makarchuk, head of the NBU’s Department of Strategy and Development, a pilot project to do so may be launched before the end of the year.
