Polygon will increase its staff by 200 people by the end of the year
They are methodically poaching experts from other companies
Company looking for good Web3 developers first
Polygon plans to increase its workforce by 40% by the end of the year. They are ready to employ 200 specialists – and many positions allow for remote work. The company particularly lacks quality Web3 programmers. They also have vacancies for managers, engineers and partnership specialists.
Many cryptocurrency companies are cutting their staff this year amid the recession. Polygon, however, received a $450 million investment from Sequoia Capital India in February. They see the bear market as a rare chance to poach quality talent.
The project has already managed to hire 30 developers from One Planet, as well as former employees from Amazon and Electronic Arts Inc. Many projects started migrating from Terra to Polygon in the summer after the UST collapse.
“In general, technical talent is a big rarity even in Web2. With Web3, it’s even harder because the industry is just taking shape,” comments Polygon’s director of human resources, Mr Srivastava.
According to web3.career, the average salary for Solidity programmers last month was $101,000 per year. Salaries for top professionals can be as high as $400k.
