Future-proof your career: Blockchain

by | Jun 24, 2018 | Blockchain | 0 comments

Where there is a lot of money, there will be a lot of Jobs.

In 2017 alone, the market cap of all cryptocurrencies has increased over $180,000,000,000.

There are so many blockchain companies dying for good help, and there aren’t many experienced people out there to fill this gap. Having 3 years of experience in this space is extremely rare. Right now with 6 months of hard work and research you can contribute heavily to the space, because there is that much demand for knowledge.

Here are the areas we think have the biggest gaps and the companies who are hiring.

Here are some of gaps we know need to be filled at blockchain companies:

  • A lot of blockchain companies need user experience help. The act of actually buying, selling, and storing cryptocurrency is difficult. There is a ton of work that needs to be done in this sector to make it available to more people, similar to how the early days of the internet were not user friendly.

  • Many blockchain companies badly need sales, marketing, and communications help.

  • Development work for creating smart contracts, with programming language Solidity. Learning how to code smart contracts has quickly become a high paying job, and although an experienced programmer has an advantage over a brand new programmer, the playing field is much more level. Six months of Solidity experience is enough to land a job right now.
