If you are looking for a job in the crypto world, maybe this is your chance. Facebook’s Calibra will create 50 new positions for its team in Ireland.
Fire?! Facebook Calibra is hiring
Facebook has decided to hire new employees amid the crisis, the Irish Times reported. In this way, he ensured that Calibra’s small team in Dublin plans to grow this year.
The creation of new jobs is part of an expansion plan for the Calibra team. In this way, Laura Morgan Walsh, chief operating officer of Facebook, assured that, despite the global uncertainty, the company continues to invest in equipment located in Dublin.
Also, Walsh added that they are “Actively hiring fraud, compliance, workforce management, and customer service experts to expand our operations team that supports the Calibra wallet“
It is important to note that, since 2009, Calibra has been essential for the development of Libra. Accordingly, Facebook notes that its operations in Ireland are “Critically important” for your planning.
This was emphasized by Gareth Lambe, head of Facebook for Ireland, who reiterated that Ireland “plays a central role” in the overall operations of the company in general.
“We have over 60 teams, including engineers, security experts, policy experts, marketing and sales staff with a number of global and regional teams led from Ireland.Lambe said.
Changes in Libra?
The expansion of Facebook’s Calibra team occurs just days after the revelation of the second technical document for its digital currency, Libra, by the Libra Association.
Since Libra was announced, Facebook has not stopped receiving criticism and pressure from regulatory entities. Consequently, the company has had to make major changes.
Libra was initially proposed to be backed by a basket of fiat currencies, however the new technical document has modified this. Now, the company plans to issue multiple stablecoins backed by different fiat currencies.
Accordingly, each issued stablecoin will be backed by a single fiat currency.
Also, the project will now have a stricter system for anti-money laundering control and other measures that concerned regulators.
Obviously, the new changes aim to attract reluctant global regulators to Facebook’s cryptocurrency.
So, with the new changes, it makes sense that Facebook’s Calibra wants to expand its workforce in search of new challenges.
