Bitmain, a crypto chipset manufacturer, has initiated a campus recruitment program to discover new talent.
In an update on Sep. 4, Bitmain outlined their specific interest in recruiting PhD candidates talented in thermal energy, machinery, electrical engineering, materials science, and related fields as part of this initiative.
Bitmain is seeking 24 graduates, both from home and abroad, with at least a master’s degree. In return, they offer free dormitory accommodation for three years or discounted rent. This recruitment drive isn’t limited to China; it also covers Singapore, Malaysia, and the United States.
This update follows Bitmain’s announcement on June 21 that it, along with the crypto platform Anchorage Digital, would acquire equity in Core Scientific, then the second-largest publicly listed Bitcoin miner.
Core Scientific had filed for bankruptcy due to declining revenue and falling Bitcoin prices. However, it’s worth noting that the status of this plan is still pending, and there have been no new updates to report as of now.
At the same time, the company also shared its hosting of World Digital Mining Summit 2023 (WDMS 2023) in Hong Kong from Sept. 22 to 23, 2023, with the theme of “mining for the next bull market.”
