Ripple continues to expand despite the deepening crypto winter and SEC case.
In a tweet on Friday, Ripple urged the public to consider joining its team and look through open positions on its website as it is looking to expand.
As highlighted by the company in its tweet, a FORTUNE survey in May found that 95% of staff thought it was a great place to work. Far greater than the average of 57% in the US. Notably, Ripple currently ranks 34th in FORTUNE’s list of 100 best medium places to work.

It is worth noting that a search through the company’s open positions reveals that there are about 156 available roles, with some roles that need filling in multiple regions, which could easily multiply the number of open positions.
It is worth noting that the blockchain-based Fintech company is looking to expand in a period when many others in the industry have been cutting back on staff. The trend comes as the crypto industry is feeling the squeeze as asset prices continue to plummet.
Notably, this, combined with a legal battle with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, does not appear to slow the firm down. Instead, Ripple is expanding its services to other regions.
As highlighted by Ripple chief Brad Garlinghouse in April, nothing changes should the company lose its legal battle with the US SEC. Garlinghouse asserted that the company is already operating with the mindset that it has lost the case. Consequently, 95% of its clients are outside of the US.
Notably, the case with the SEC is nearing its end, and Ripple looks like a strong contender to win it. Moreover, the company’s legal team has expressed even more confidence in their arguments as they have finally received the documents relating to the draft of the controversial William Hinman speech in 2018.
