The California office of Visa is searching for a blockchain specialist with eight years of experience in working with distributed applications based on Ethereum. Crypto-community calls attention to the fact that the ecosystem exists only two and a half years.
The world's largest payment system Visa is looking to expand its development team in its office in Foster City. According to the published announcement, Visa searches for a blockchain specialist who will create a new payment service based on the distributed registry.
"Our ideal candidate has built and released distributed applications, has worked with the Ripple, R3, Ethereum and/or Bitcoin blockchain, and has experience with Solidity," the announcement reads.
Candidates must also have experience in trade finance, equities, payments processing, wholesale credit blockchain technical expertise, as well as in building cloud-based and scalable solutions and have a bachelor's degree in computer sciences.
The total work experience should be at least eight years, The list of requirements end with an obligatory 8-years total work experience.
Although it is obvious that Visa writes about the experience not only in the field of blockchain technology, but in general with distributed and cloud financial applications, the requirement of 8 years of work experience has caused criticism from the crypto-community, which mentioned that Ethereum exists only two and a half years, and bitcoin is 9 years old, which implies that a proper candidate is supposed to be one of the earliest specialists in blockchain, if not Satoshi Nakamoto himself.

Someone please tell Visa they can't look for Ethereum engineers with 8 years in experience because Ethereum was created in 2015.— Joseph Young (@iamjosephyoung) 16 января 2018 г.
In the comments, he added that Visa would have to wait until 2023 when the Ethereum ecosystem turns 8.
Someone tell Satoshi it´s a trap to finally spot him! :D— Mark Caruso (@Mr_Cso) 16 января 2018 г.
