Cardano hires a new Sr. Product Manager

Essar said:

“I’m excited to start at IOHK and join the Cardano project - the industry is missing a third-generation blockchain platform that is built from the ground up to be the foundation for large enterprise-class applications. I’m thrilled to join this team and play a part in building it.”
