Strapi, a french company, recently announced that they will temporarily stop hiring in France because of financial issues it might bring.
Created in 2016 by Pierre Burgy, Jim Laurie and Aurélien Georget, Strapi is an open-source headless content management system (CMS) that allows developers to easily build and deploy APIs for their projects. It provides a flexible and scalable framework for creating, managing, and delivering content to any platform or device.
The company is based in Paris (France) and has since has since grown to become a leading provider of open-source headless CMS solutions. I already talked about it in my first article: Directus vs Strapi.
Recently, this post was shared on social media platforms stating that Strapi has stopped recruiting in France. This information comes from an internal presentation.
Multiple reasons have been stated, mostly financial ones: reaching 50 employees in France "would cost a lot of money and time (= money)" and "taxes in France are the highest of all countries in which we are present".
