Avg Time-To-Fill: 2 weeks

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.

As our technology capability continues to expand, I have no doubt that Plexus will continue to be a key player in the provision of exceptional talent for Mara.

Mara is a platform that is transforming the lives of Africans and empowering them to build wealth through blockchain technology.

They empower people to develop financial literacy so they can take the greatest possible advantage of the numerous opportunities available in the digital economy.


Mara engaged Plexus to help rapidly scale their European tech function as they wanted to develop a range of cryptocurrency related products.

We were tasked with recruiting a number of roles in engineering and product to create agile teams that could help build and grow their product offering.



Due to the scale and speed of hiring, we dedicated our full Delivery team to the project, overseen by a Director. As Mara wanted to expand quickly, multiple roles were recruited for at once, focusing on senior strategic roles before moving onto multiple hands-on-tech hires.



As a result of their hiring, Mara were able to raise $23m in seed funding, develop multiple product offerings with their new team and grow headcount from single digits to over 150 across multiple continents.
