Although it’s only been around for three years, Binance has quickly risen to become the world’s biggest and best-known cryptocurrency exchange. It’s more than just an exchange, of course: it’s also an IEO launchpad, a margin trading and staking platform, a research division, a mining pool, a charity, an incubator and so on. Recently, new Binance registrations approached levels last witnessed during the peak of the 2017 bull run.
Binance always seems to be recruiting, which is great news for freelancers and others with technical expertise who find themselves out of work. At the moment, Binance is hiring a SE Asia business operations specialist to develop and manage relationships with clients, agents and partners throughout the region. Boosting sales by researching accounts, identifying key players and forming long-lasting connections will be the main duties, and the recruit must be fluent in English with native knowledge of at least one regional language (Thai, Vietnamese, Indonesian or Chinese). Although crypto expertise isn’t crucial, it’s certainly a plus.

OKCoin is a leading global digital asset exchange founded in 2013 and headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in Hong Kong, Malta, Korea, Singapore, Vietnam, Japan and the Philippines. Formerly one of China’s big three crypto exchanges, OKCoin moved to the United States after Chinese fiat-to-crypto trading was banned in 2017, and recently became the first non-Japanese exchange to obtain a license from the country’s regulators. OKCoin boasts a user base of millions and a workforce of over 1,000, servicing traders from over 180 countries.
At the moment, the firm is looking to hire someone to help grow the team and implement visionary design leadership. The new recruit will be based out of San Francisco and tasked with managing and developing expanding UX/UI and visual design teams, while collaborating with leadership peers in various departments. At least seven years’ design experience and two years of management is required.
You don’t have to be based stateside to apply to join OKCoin, though: the company is also hiring data analysts, general and trading-focused product managers, UX writers and UX/UI designers in locations including Singapore, Malta and Hong Kong. It’s fair to say the bulk of vacancies are at headquarters, though.
