Blockchain vendor R3 doubles London office amid hiring spree

R3 is looking to expand its global headcount from 215 to almost 300 by the end of the year

Blockchain technology specialist R3 has doubled the size of its office in London and will add more than 40 new hires in the city as part of a major expansion plans.

R3 said in a statement that the extra space will support its “aggressive hiring plan” to increase global headcount from 215 to almost 300 by the end of the year, with over half of those being based in the larger London office.
