Job listings for various roles based in Kuala Lumpur for Binance have appeared in a few platforms online. The eye-catching detail is the opening for a Country Manager for Malaysia, which suggests that the world’s largest digital assets exchange is looking to set up a local office here.
In the job listing, it appears Binance is quite serious in setting up its presence in Malaysia – and if the JD is to be believed, Malaysia is a “key market” for Binance globally. Among other responsibilities, the Country Manager is expected to lead expansion plans for the market, launch new services, lead local key marketing activities, and of course, represent Binance in the local events, media, and in communications with external stakeholders.
The listing was created on 31 July, and can be found on a few job listing platforms – though curiously, this role is not listed in Binance’s official website nor on its official LinkedIn page. Besides the Country Manager/Director role, there is an open position posted two days ago for an Office Administrator which explicitly states that applicants must be based in Malaysia.
The timings of these postings are notable, as the Securities Commission’s announcement of enforcement actions against Binance was made on 30 July – just before these job openings were posted.
As we approach the halfway mark of the SC’s 14-business-day notice to cease operations, Binance still has not issued a statement to its Malaysian users. Its website and app function as usual, and its official Telegram channel is still running; everything seems to be BAU (Business As Usual).
