The Gemini cryptocurrency exchange is growing its workforce with a massive recruitment push that is aiming to bring on 200 new hires.
According to a new report from Forbes, Gemini is “growing fast” and “aggressively hiring” with the company’s director of talent Jonathon Tamblyn, stating that the exchange is searching for more than 200 new hires at present.
Tamblyn makes it clear that the company is not just looking for those with previous experience in the cryptocurrency sector, explicitly stating that it is not a prerequisite.
This comes alongside an ongoing trend of industry growth in the blockchain sector, which has increased by a rate of more than double in the past year. This shift correlates with a notable change in hiring priorities exhibited over the past year by employers, which BeInCrypto explored just a couple of weeks ago.
Gemini — a crypto stalwart
Gemini is a cryptocurrency exchange created by two co-founders of Facebook, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss in 2014. Since then, Gemini has become regarded as a pioneer in the development of progressive relationships between the crypto industry. In 2016, Gemini became the first exchange to be officially licensed to sell ether and in 2018, it became the first licensed exchange to sell Zcash.
The aim of Gemini is to create the foremost wallet and exchange products and services, with an eye towards accomplishing mainstream adoption. The twins hope to accomplish this by putting user experience front and foremost: creating an accessible, easy-to-use, and easy to understand avenue for onboarding newcomers.
In the same article, Chief Operating Officer (COO) at Gemini, Noah Perlman, seemed to support this statement, saying that:
“Trading platforms that prioritize security and smart regulation, while making it simple for anyone to use, make cryptocurrencies accessible and attractive. We believe digital assets are a strategic part of a well-rounded portfolio and providing crypto education will help remove barriers to entry.”
