A slew of new job openings at Ripple is shedding light on the company’s push to spread adoption of the crypto asset XRP.
Xpring, Ripple’s fundraising and development arm, is hiring 10 new people in positions ranging from senior infrastructure engineer to director of product management to vice president of developer relations. The positions are designed to help Ripple create and promote an ecosystem that gives engineers the resources they need to build enterprise applications on the XRP Ledger.
According to Ripple,
“Xpring is Ripple’s open developer platform for money, and our vision is to bring money to the Internet. We work on open-source projects for fiat and cryptocurrencies.
We build tools, offer services, and provide support to developers to make it easy to build on our core open-source technologies: the XRP Ledger and the Interledger Protocol (ILP). We help developers add money into their applications on using XRP and ILP.”
Last week, Xpring announced it’s rolling out a new development relations initiative to engage engineers, offering a a central hub to share content, discover events and get support.
In December, Xpring launched a software development kit (SDK) to help developers integrate XRP-based payments into their products. One of the jobs advertised on Ripple’s website is for an SDK and Tools engineer. Job duties include assisting with creating tools for the Interledger Protocol.
Xpring has also allocated more than $500 million worth of XRP to fund businesses building on crypto and blockchain technology.
