Chinese mining giant Bitmain is preparing to open a data center in Texas (USA). This conclusion made from the vacancies published by the company.
In particular, Bitmain is looking for a project manager and data center site manager for a new venture in a small town of Rockdale. Local residents have already expressed the hope that the new business will bring new jobs to the region that is in decline.
In 2014, local smelting plant was closed, and this year the coal-fired power plant stopped operating in the town, resulting in a reduction in jobs at a nearby mine.
Local residents hope that the new data center will bring Rockdale high-skilled jobs. However, as the unnamed specialist of the branch noted, mining requires a lot of capital and few people.
In addition to Rockdale, Bitmain is looking for staff in Chandler (Arizona), as well as in two cities in Washington State - Malaga and Wenatchee.
Chinese company received the profit of $ 1.1 billion for the I quarter of 2018. Also, recently Bitmain noted that it contols 4% of Bitcoin's network hashing power.
