Boston Fed Wants to Hire a Digital Currency Engineer

• https://currencyinsider.com, by CURRENCY INSIDER

This "lead engineer" will play a key role in the digital currency experiments being spearheaded by the regional central bank branch's Applied FinTech Research team, according to a job description posted June 10.

Along with "developing digital currency software," the one-year hire will audit code, address bottlenecks and manage tech specs inside and outside the fintech-focused team.

Robert Bench, a Boston Fed payments official and director of the Applied FinTech Research team, said during a recent CBDC event hosted by The Block that the U.S. "better be ready" to issue a digital dollar in the future – though he cautioned that such a decision would ultimately be Washington's to make.
