The Tezos Foundation announced Friday that it is seeking to hire more developers to be based out of Paris.
"The Foundation is providing increased resources and support to expand the core development team of Tezos in Paris," the Foundation explained. "This will further expand this world-class team to approximately 35-40 individuals. Recruitment is already underway.”
The move comes just over a week after the group's board was reshuffled, a development which saw former president Johann Gevers stepping down and community member Ryan Jesperson taking his place.
Days later, the Tezos Foundation board expanded to include Polychain founder Olaf Carlson-Wee, Alstom Digital Mobility senior vice president Pascal Cléré, Valais Academic Association co-president Marylène Micheloud and venture capitalist Hubertus Thonhauser.
The hiring push is perhaps indicative of the change of pace following the resolution of a months-long governance dispute that roiled the Tezos project, pitting founders Arthur and Kathleen Breitman against Gevers. Amidst the back-and-forth, a series of class-action lawsuits were filed by participants in the $232 million Tezos token sale, which took place last summer.
