Circle Wants To Hire More Staff Amid Wide Industry Layoffs

The issuer of USDC, Circle, wants to start its hiring process despite the massive layoffs in the industry. According to Wall Street Journal (WSJ), Circle might hire 15% to 25% more staff this year and currently has around 900 employees. The expected 25% growth is still half of the company’s expansion in 2022 when it doubled its number of employees from the year before.

Circle CFO Optimistic About Firm’s Growth

Circle’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jeremy Fox-Geen told WSJ that they are “in a financial position to be able to sustain our investments” and added that they have prudently slowed down their growth and are focused on what matters most. Although Circle is looking for a better time not this year due to recent bankruptcies and collapses, Fox-Geen remains optimistic about the firm’s growth.

Other Companies Also Hiring Despite Layoffs

Other companies such as Binance have also announced hiring around 700 new employees despite wide industry layoffs. This indicates that although certain firms may be affected by these losses, some companies remain confident about their future prospects and continue investing in human resources.

Compliance With Regulators Important

Fox-Geens also stated that compliance with regulators and maintaining good relations are essential things that Circle has been doing as they make progress towards going public. As such, it is important for firms like Circle to ensure regulatory compliance while expanding their workforce at the same time in order for them achieve success in both areas.

Conclusion

In conclusion, although many industries continue experiencing massive layoffs due to the pandemic, some companies remain optimistic about their future prospects and are continuing with their recruitment efforts even amidst difficult times – an example being USDC issuer Circle which plans on hiring between 135-225 staff this year.
