TIME is seeking to hire a CFO who understands bitcoin


TIME is hiring a new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) to oversee the brand's money matters — and it would prefer someone familiar with bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, according to a job description posted on LinkedIn on Monday. 

The listing did not explain what the CFO would be doing with crypto, but included among the qualifications that TIME would like to see in job candidates is "comfort with Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies."

The new job posting comes on the same day that the brand announced it will auction three magazine covers in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The NFTs are available for purchase individually or as a collection on NFT marketplace SuperRare. The auction is now open and will run until March 24. At press time, the highest bid was at 20 ETH (about $35,000). 

The Block has reached out to TIME and we will update this story if we receive additional comments.
