IOHK, the biggest developer house behind the Cardano blockchain, is building a new dedicated team to manage its rapidly growing community of developers, according to the firm’s marketing and communications director Tim Harrison.

Data engineer, quantitative analyst, solutions architect, and strategy consultant are among some of the positions that are open at the moment.      

Cardano is on the verge of fully unleashing the Goguen era with the Alonzo hard fork that will bring smart contracts to the sixth-largest blockchain.

Harrison claims that the anticipated advent of Alonzo is behind a huge spike in developer activity that is being observed as of now.

The main Ethereum rival has been in the lead for years, a fact that gets frequently touted by IOHK CEO Charles Hoskinson.        

However, some might argue that this is only a vanity metric since it simply tracks the number of total changes to the codebase without taking into account their usefulness.
