In the latest daily cryptocurrency news, we are focusing on the popularity of crypto and blockchain as industries which constantly attract new talent. Despite the slump in the prices of cryptocurrencies led by Bitcoin, it seems that the crypto and blockchain industries are attracting more specialists well-versed in these cryptocurrencies.
According to a new report by Glassdoor, the US job postings with keywords related to blockchain, Bitcoin (BTC), as well as cryptocurrencies, rose by even 300%. The company took into account all of the blockchain-related terms and excluded jobs from third-party recruiting firms.
From the 446 job openings reported in 2017, we now have 1,775 unique blockchain-related job openings in the US since August 2018, proving that the popularity of these jobs is high. Speaking of heights, the highest proportion of job openings within the US is concentrated in 15 cities, including the New York City and San Francisco, both having a 24% and 21% share of the total job ads, respectively.
The most demanded blockchain roles are mainly technical and engineering – and the most popular job is “software engineer” holding 19% of the total job openings. However, there are many other aspiring roles including the role of an analyst relations manager, product manager, risk analyst, and marketing manager roles.
