Tezos Foundation to Beef Up Dev Team Following Board Reshuffle

The hiring push is possibly indicative of this change of speed seen in the aftermath of a government dispute which roiled the Tezos job, equaling founders Arthur and Kathleen Breitman against Gevers. Amidst the back-and-forth, participants at the 232 million Tezos token sale, which took place last summer filed a string of class-action suits.
The new hires will help the Foundation “advance its main objective” of creating the Tezos protocol, and to market it to prospective users, the group announced in a statement.

The move comes just over a development which saw president Johann Gevers a week following the team’s board has been reshuffled and community member Ryan Jesperson taking his place.

“The Foundation is providing improved resources and help to expand the core development team of Tezos at Paris,” that the Foundation clarified. “This can further enlarge this world-class team to approximately 35-40 individuals. Recruitment is already underway.”
Days after, the Tezos Foundation board expanded to add Polychain founder Olaf Carlson-Wee, Alstom Digital Freedom senior vice president Pascal Cléré, Valais Academic Association co-president Marylène Micheloud and enterprise capitalist Hubertus Thonhauser.
