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.
The new hires will consist largely of software engineers, but the firm will also recruit for client-facing and commercial roles. The expansion in London also represents the firm’s commitment to the city, despite the uncertainty of Brexit negotiations, R3 said.
