Leading US news outlet the New York Times (NYT) has posted a job advertisement seeking blockchain talent for an internal proof-of-concept (PoC).

Several hours after the original postings were made, however, they were delisted or made unavailable, although details of the post can still be seen on Indeed. It remains unclear as to why they were taken down.

The role is listed as “Lead, Blockchain Exploration” and requires candidates to have a diverse skill set in at least three of the following areas: journalism, product, design, software development, hardware engineering, user research. Professional experience with ”real-world application” of blockchain or other emerging technologies is also a must.

The listing notes that the expected term of the position is just 12 months, in which time they are expected to recruit stakeholders for the project as well as advisors from academia, other news agencies and social media corporates.

The job listing may come as a surprise to readers of the news outlet as NYT has frequently published editorials from blockchain and cryptocurrency skeptics, although it also keeps up to date with major industry events and has recently produced several insightful reports such as its investigation of Facebook’s alleged cryptocurrency project.
