Ripple is hiring a Senior Policy Director in the US to lead government relations and strategic counsel on regulatory matters.
Ripple, the leading blockchain technology company, is searching for a Senior Policy Director in the United States to spearhead its crucial efforts in engaging with policymakers at the Federal and State levels.
The job ad was posted to Ripple’s career page, noting that the company’s Public Policy team aims to manage relations with government agencies. The firm also seeks to provide strategic counsel on regulatory matters that impact Ripple’s diverse business interests.
This leadership role will be integral in shaping the company’s public policy objectives within the US and nurturing essential relationships with external stakeholders to advance those objectives.
Recall that Ripple recently hired Amazon’s Chief Financial Officer to join its board of directors, as The Crypto Basic reported.
Senior Policy Director Responsibilities
According to the announcement, the Senior Policy Director will create avenues for Ripple to interact with key players in the regulatory sphere, including legislators and thought leaders.
The director must collaborate with internal business partners to grasp Ripple’s operations’ intricacies and offer expert guidance on the potential implications of public policy developments.
The successful candidate must keep a keen eye on legislative and regulatory initiatives in the US and take proactive steps to support or influence them. Establishing solid relationships with Federal and State stakeholders will be paramount to driving Ripple’s advocacy efforts forward.
Also on the agenda for the director is building an extensive network among external stakeholders, which includes trade associations, non-public organizations, and industry counterparts.
Ripple desires its Senior Policy Director to know digital assets and blockchain-related policy issues. The ad further noted that candidates with experience in senior public or policy roles within the tech, enterprise software, payments, or financial services sectors will have a distinct advantage.
Moreover, Ripple will strongly consider individuals with a background in congressional and executive branch positions. Likewise, those with pre-existing relationships with policymakers and regulators are at an advantage.
Ripple also requires the Senior Policy Director to have stellar written and verbal communication skills to liaise with the CEO’s office, the Executive Leadership Team, and other senior stakeholders.
This director position presents interested candidates with the opportunity to serve in one of the best-rated workplaces in the tech space. Specifically, Ripple has recently been ranked among the top 100 best work environments, as The Crypto Basic reported.
Notably, Ripple President Monica Long said in a recent interview with CNBC that the firm has started re-engaging with the US markets following the recent clarity from the US court. The hiring seems to be part of Ripple’s plan to expand in the US.
