Binance Meets Crisis With 175 Job Openings, Bitcoin.com Cuts In Question
While the world wears the coronavirus pandemic and its associated economic impact, including widespread unemployment, some cryptocurrency companies are ramping up their workforce..
On Friday, the Binance exchange recalled the presence of a job page on its website, where more than 100 positions are currently represented. As noted by Binance in its tweet, its vacancies suggest the possibility of working from home, which is especially important during the period of self-isolation of the population..
The vacancies presented by Binance cover a large geography, including Moscow, where it requires a support specialist, web developer and recruiter. Although the official announcement says “over 100 vacancies”, there were actually 175 available at the time of publication..
According to LinkedIn, Binance currently has 720 employees, while other sources estimate the number to be in the range of 500-800.
Also this week it became known that the Kraken exchange is increasing its staff by 10%, thus responding to the growth of interest in cryptocurrencies it has noticed. In addition, Kraken intends to provide temporary employment for the relatives of its employees who have lost their jobs..
Meanwhile, the network is spreading information that the crypto-portal of the main supporter of Bitcoin Cash Roger Vera Bitcoin.com is cutting 50% of its employees. It gained attention following a post from Twitter user Whale Panda, who in turn links to recruiting site Candor.co. On the Candor.co page itself, it says that all information is entered into the table by users and does not pass verification by the creators of the resource.
The user who left information about Bitcoin.com did not enter the source of information, as was done in some other cases. There are still two open positions on Bitcoin.com. We have contacted Bitcoin.com and will update the material if we receive a response..
