Ripple is still looking to expand its team despite the seemingly incessant legal tussle with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The technology firm recently called public attention to numerous job roles within its team, soliciting applications from interested and qualified applicants.


A preview of its careers page reveals up to 71 job roles currently open across several departments, including but not limited to global operations, legal, RippleX, RippleNet, finance, and engineering. The company also seeks interns for its product design, software engineering, and product management roles.

The majority of jobs are offering on-site roles spanning numerous locations, which include the United States, Canada, Singapore, the United Kingdom, Australia, and the United Arab Emirates.

Amid the ongoing litigation with the SEC, Ripple has been expanding its legal team to beef up its defense strategy and increase its capacity to navigate legal proceedings. Last July, the Silicon Valley firm hired Kylie Kim and Clayton Masterman, two Kellogg Hansen lawyers, to appear pro hac vice in the SEC case.
