JP Morgan seems to be the number one employer for its blockchain sector according to the data from Indeed.com which comes as a surprise due to the negative stance towards cryptocurrencies by Jamie Dimon-the CEO of the company. Let’s read more about it in the digital currency news below.
The list shows that among the companies who hire the most people in their blockchain sectors are Deloitte, IBM, Cisco, Microsoft, ConsenSys, Accenture, KPMG and EY.
Reading the names of exactly these companies is no surprising. However, for some it is weird that ConsenSys which is the most important element in the Ethereum space is last on the list and JP Morgan was way above it.
The number of opened blockchain job positions has increased by more than 4,000 percent since 2016 and job searches have also skyrocketed by more than 5000%. However, many job positions remain opened and empty for a long time because of the still developing sector and shortage of skilled developers.
It seems weird enough that Google and Facebook are not on the list. Facebook announced they are working on a blockchain project and are even considering launching their own stablecoin but there is still nothing new on that front. Jack Dorsey’s Cash app is also hiring blockchain engineers but there are still some opened positions left.
Microsoft banned all of the crypto ads but the company hires a great number of blockchain engineers from across the world. Microsoft has a huge involvement in the blockchanin space calling itself the ‘’blockchain workbench’’ after the launch of its Azure cloud computing environment.
Most of the blockchain jobs are listed in California. Las Angeles and San Jose are at the very bottom of the list while San Francisco is at number two. New Jersey and New York are third. In the meantime, the mayor of Chicago spoke recently on how building a blockchain friendly environment would be a good thing for the city especially since Coinbase expanded there. Ohio is also among the popular places because of the city’s strong attempts at attracting blockchain companies with the help of legislation.
California is the home of Ripple and Coinbase and many other blockchain companies which is why this state has the perfect position to becoming a blockchain developers’ hub.
