Binance intends to hire 15-30% more employees in 2023. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) reportedly stated on January 11 at the Crypto Finance Conference in St. Moritz, Switzerland, that the exchange will attempt to increase its employees and reorganize in order to improve efficiency.
According to CNBC’s Arjun Kharpal in a January 11 piece, the world’s largest exchange is apparently planning to continue its recruiting drive from 2022, while practically all of the rest of crypto appears to be downsizing.
In 2022, Binance increased its staff by over 150%, going from around 3k employees to around 8k. Adding an additional 30% of staff would put Binance at more than 10k employees globally.
CZ also told the conference that the exchange needs to do better to organize before the next bull run. He wants to ensure the company runs as efficiently as possible and that it can continue its meteoric rise through the industry.
Binance positions itself as the world’s leading blockchain ecosystem and crypto-asset infrastructure provider with a financial product suite that includes the largest digital asset exchange by volume.
The Binance platform aims to increase the freedom of money for users and features a comprehensive portfolio of crypto-asset products and offerings, including trading and finance, education, data and research, social good, investment and incubation, decentralization, and infrastructure solutions.
