Target dips toes into blockchain with Hyperledger project and job posting

Target dips toes into blockchain with Hyperledger project and job posting
Another day, another retailer interested in blockchain
technologies. Target is entering the blockchain space with minimal fanfare,
having posted a job advert for a blockchain engineer.

As originally
reported by Coindesk , the job offers the winning candidate an opportunity
to contribute to ConsenSource, an GitHub project from Target which is a
certificate registry blockchain application, built with Hyperledger Sawtooth, as
well as Hyperledger Grid.

Joel Crabb, vice president of architecture at Target, wrote a
missive in April exploring the benefits of blockchain. Last year, the company
began a proof of concept to help manage the certification of suppliers in
branded paper product manufacturing. The result was that while setting up a
blockchain was straightforward, working out what should live on the distributed
ledger was less so.

Target is working with agribusiness provider Cargill on its Hyperledger
blockchain initiative around the supply chain.

“Distributed ledgers will bring a new form of transactional
ability and data storage to corporate enterprises – one in which the transactions
are trusted and the data is verified by a group of companies working to solve
problems that extend beyond their own borders,” wrote
Crabb . “Maturity in this space will take time, but we’ll only get there
when enterprise partners like Target and Cargill dive in together.”

Many of the largest retailers are moving on from exploration
to use cases when it comes to blockchain. Last week, as
this publication reported , Carrefour said it had reported an increase in
sales after implementing ledger technology to track meat, milk and fruit from farms
to stores. In the same week Walmart, a long-time believer, announced it was collaborating
with MediLedger to track the provenance of pharmaceutical goods through

Anyone wishing to try their luck with the Target job ad,
posted on May 29, will need a minimum 12 months’ software development
experience in more than one language, as well as of course knowledge in
blockchain or distributed systems, UI/UX development, as well as continuous
delivery and iteration.

You can take a look at the full advert here.
