The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco has published a job listing for the position of a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) developer to do research into the potential costs and benefits of various technologies that might be used for CBDC.

The applicant will allegedly collaborate closely with management, other developers on the team, and suppliers. By doing this, the bank will be able to create and implement technologies that will facilitate a CBDC, according to familiar sources.
