Gaming company Razer has put up job ads to hire a blockchain, crypto and decentralised finance (DeFi) lead in Singapore.
The associate director/director role in this space will help to craft and execute Razer’s strategy on using blockchain as a platform.
The individual will work closely with Razer’s business and product leaders to pursue global opportunities that include partnerships and investments in the world of blockchain, crypto, and DeFi technologies.
In addition, the new hire will also help the company — which has over 120 million users — explore crypto and DeFi as potential areas of expansion for Razer’s services business.
Razer requires the candidate to have qualities like a technical background, an understanding of the fintech and blockchain ecosystem, and at least five years of experience in finance, business development, and marketing roles in the crypto/blockchain industry.
Razer’s CEO Tan Min-Liang shared the job post on his LinkedIn, which gathered more than 85 likes. Some followers commented that it’s a “great opportunity”.
The job posting, which is still open, has received 365 views and 38 applications.
A search on Razer Group’s LinkedIn account also revealed another job posting for a global engineering head which indicated “knowledge of crypto/blockchain” as a desired skill.
Razer exploring crypto space
Earlier this month, Razer announced that it’s exploring a potential entry into the cryptocurrency space.
Tan had said in a presentation then that there is a nascent opportunity for Razer in the cryptocurrency space, given the wide reach of its Razer Fintech unit.
However, he also raised concerns on the impact crypto has on the environment in a Twitter post.
Tan had said that it is “unlikely” that Razer will issue its own cryptocurrency, but he would not rule out the firm accepting one or more of the other currencies out there for its hardware and services.
