Global crypto exchange Binance is now hiring IT specialists and customer service representatives for its operations in Romania. The leading coin trading platform is also engaged in a number of educational initiatives in collaboration with Romanian universities and authorities.
Binance, the largest crypto exchange by trading volume, intends to hire a number of professionals this year for its technology hub in Iași, Romania’s third largest city. The hub was established in 2022 and the company is now recruiting its staff.
Job openings are already available for IT specialists, including in backend, quality assurance, frontend, and mobile, the Romania Insider portal reported. Expertise is needed in Java, typescript, iOS and Android, automation, and framework. Binance Country Manager for Romania Ilie Pușcaș stated:
Binance is constantly hiring and developing around the world, and Romania, recognized for its high skills in IT and technology, is an important point on our map.
“Last year, we opened our first technology hub in the country, in Iași, after consistent discussions with the Romanian government, and this year we are entering a natural stage of growth, in which we want to attract many talents to our new center,” the executive added.
Binance is also hiring customer support staff for its offices in Bucharest. The vacant positions for both the tech hub in Iași and the Bucharest branch have been listed on its global website.
Binance founder and CEO Changpeng Zhao announced the opening of the Romanian office during a visit to Bucharest in September. While in the country, he met with high-ranking officials and highlighted Binance’s plans to expand direct operations in Eastern Europe.
Besides the recruitment efforts, Binance is also behind a number of educational initiatives in Romania. These are realized in collaboration with other platforms, universities, and government institutions, in order to organize courses, webinars, and training in finance and crypto for Romanians. The company has already held meet-ups in Bucharest, Iași, and Cluj-Napoca.
The global exchange is engaged in similar projects in several other countries in the region and the former-Soviet space. Earlier in February, Binance agreed to support Georgia in developing its crypto sector through education and crypto-focused events. In December, it launched a blockchain education program in Kazakhstan and offered to help Azerbaijan with crypto regulation.
