A recent job posting for a Shareholders Communication Senior Manager at Ripple has led to increased speculation about the cryptocurrency firm’s plans to go public.
The role entails managing communication and relationships with various stakeholders, including current and potential investors, shareholders, financial analysts, and more. The office holder will collaborate closely with internal Ripple teams and report directly to the Senior Vice President of People, Places, and Communications.
Candidates for this position should have at least five years’ experience in investor relations, equity research, analyst relations, hedge funds, asset management, or related fields, along with a strong understanding of cryptocurrency. The base salary for this role falls within the range of $143,792 to $179,740.
Is Ripple planning an IPO?
Rumors have been circulating amongst the XRP community about Ripple’s potential IPO, even though the company has not yet made any official announcement. Notably, members of the XRP community, including popular figure WrathofKahneman, have suggested that the current open positions in the company might indicate an expectation of it going public despite there being little evidence beyond the job posting.
Last year, Brad Garlinghouse, Ripple’s CEO, suggested the possibility of an IPO, stating it could follow the conclusion of the company’s ongoing legal battle with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Ripple has yet to respond to CryptoSlate’s request for comment as of press time.
It’s worth noting that Ripple would not be the first crypto company to go public in the United States if it pursues this path. In 2021, the cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase went public on the Nasdaq exchange through a direct stock listing.
