“Since the inception of Mara, the Plexus team have played an instrumental role in the build out of our product, engineering, security and infrastructure arm. For every position that we have requested assistance with, Plexus have put their heart and soul in to providing us with exceptional profiles that meet our high standards. In particular, they have ensured a number of senior, niche positions have been filled in a timely manner; ranging from Lead Chain Architect, to Head of Engineering. I am incredibly grateful for the service Plexus provides, their continued efforts and provision of relevant, exceptional profiles has significantly contributed to the swift scale up of our technology teams.

Mara were looking to rapidly scale their European tech function to develop a range of cryptocurrency related products. We were tasked with resourcing a number of agile teams with engineering and product roles.
Due to the scale and speed of the hiring, we allocated an entire Delivery team to the project, headed up and coordinated by a Director. Multiple roles were covered off at once, starting with senior strategic roles before moving into multiple hands-on tech hires.
Since we started scaling their team, Mara were able to raise a $23m seed round, develop multiple product offerings, and grow headcount from single digits to over 150, across multiple continents.
