The latest cryptocurrency news show that crypto is a valuable skill that is needed in a lot of organizations. It seems like the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is one of them. According to a recent ad, NASA is hiring a data scientist which will have crypto and DML as his background and main expertise.
A job listing posted on LinkedIn on September 20 shows that NASA is looking to employ a data scientist for its Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California – which main goal is the construction and operation of planetary robotic spacecraft and conducting Earth-orbit missions.
“The Data Scientist will be a member of the Chief Technology and Innovation Office, working with all of JPL. Will be detail-oriented Big Data Scientist who loves discovering trends where none were visible before. The successful candidate will be a self-starter who possesses a strong desire and experience developing, implementing, and maintaining a program of predictive analytics,” the job listing notes.
As many best cryptocurrency news sites reported, NASA is hiring a specific data scientist and has received a handful of applications. What’s interesting is the related fields which NASA created in the job listing too, adding that the candidate should know big data, machine learning, Internet of Things, analytics, statistics and cloud computing and others. Cryptocurrency and blockchain technology are seen as a big plus, the ad says.
“The Data Scientist will be responsible for designing and implementing a program for analyzing complex, large-scale data sets used for modelling, data mining, research, and predictive analysis purposes,” the job listing also notes, clearly stating that the candidate needs to be creative, tenant, curious and have deep technical skills.
In other words, NASA is hiring a data scientist that will know how to design and implement programs for analyzing complex, large-scale data sets used for research, modelling, data mining and predictive analysis, as the agency wrote.
However, reports in the Bitcoin and altcoin news show that the major global aerospace agency is not new to blockchain technology. In fact, in January 2019 NASA proposed an air traffic management blockchain framework to enable secure, private and anonymous communication with air traffic services.
In April last year, NASA also awarded a grant supporting the development of an autonomous spacecraft which could implement blockchain technology to make decisions without any human intervention.
