Cryptocurrencies and blockchain startups are popping up everywhere, and more people are using crypto than ever before. In 2017, up to 5.8 million people used a crypto-wallet. Getting an inside track on blockchain could be your next big break, but these jobs aren’t always easy to find.
From 2016 to 2017, the number of job listing calling for knowledge of blockchain more than tripled. Most of these position are remote, but office-based crypto jobs are also available in the US. Like most technological industries, blockchain jobs primarily go to engineers, but you don’t have to be an engineer to cash in on the trend. Crypto startups need technical writers, business developers, content marketers, and accountants, much like any other business.
Knowing a bit about the industry is a must for anyone looking for work, but crypto jobs can be a bit unique. Many positions offer tokens as part of their compensation package. These tokens are a form of equity in the company and can be traded for fiat currency after the company’s initial coin offering (ICO), but the details are often withheld from the job listing.
