The best places to find a blockchain job
Who doesn’t want to join a rocket ship?
We certainly do. It’s an incredibly exciting time to be alive. Money as we know it could one day be replaced by cryptocurrency which seemed like a ludicrous idea to most people last year. It might not be Bitcoin or any other coin/token we know of yet but it’s looking increasingly likely that blockchain as an industry is here to stay. This is damn good news! Maybe you won’t get rich from hodling bitcoin longer term but there’s a LOT of new and impactful jobs being created in this space that you could get whilst the industry is still young. Imagine being one of the first 50 employees at Facebook with stock options…
Anyway, it’s time we put our money where our mouth is. Here’s a list of places where you can apply to a load of great blockchain and crypto industry jobs. We will be updating this over time so feel free to suggest great job hubs you come across 🙂
Created by Raman Shalupau, Cryptojobslist offers a great service for both job hunters and employers alike. The user experience is very straightforward, well designed and it just does what it says on the tin! This list seems to be one of the more active job platforms out there and the story behind it is a very inspiring read for any aspiring entrepreneurs out there.
This is exclusively for engineering jobs at the moment. You can tell a lot of thought has gone into the design of this interface and is clearly positioned for the higher end of the blockchain job spectrum. However, don’t be dissuaded if you don’t have tons of experience at a big name company like Google. There are some great jobs here and if you have experience building cool products you should check this out.
Another well-designed list of opportunities! Cryptocurrencyjobs.co should be on your radar if you are on the lookout for an opportunity in the world of the blockchain. Seems to be updated most days.
Cryptojobs has a range of interesting jobs on offer as well as an “upload CV” feature where job applicants can be considered for relevant roles without having to apply every time. That’s a savvy time saver! Worth adding your CV if it literally takes a few seconds…
You will have heard of the publication but you might not know that Coindesk has a jobs portal now. There are some good opportunities on here and you can rest assured that these are going to be good quality listings.
A highly recommended one! Not everybody knows about the crypto jobs board here and there are often roles advertised here that aren’t on any other job boards. You will have to create an account to view these but it’s worth investing the time and effort. This platform covers the whole tech industry so there might be jobs that catch your eye outside of just blockchain too!
It seems everyone is starting a job board these days. Shows how much interest there is in this growing industry right?! There are some good quality job opportunities on here and the site is well designed. Worth a browse.
Apply directly to companies that aren’t publicly hiring.
This works! I’ve seen it happen lots of times. Just because a company isn’t on a job board doesn’t mean they aren’t open to hiring talent. If you decide to apply proactively make sure you clearly outline what role you could fill and what value you could bring to them. If you can convince a team that you would be a great fit for them then they will at least be interested in talking to you. Look for companies that have recently raised funding via an ICO or larger investors. These teams have money to spend and are at a perfect stage to consider expanding with the right people. Get to the job before it’s even advertised on a job board and suddenly, you don’t have to compete with anyone else!
If you’d like to add to this list please leave a comment to get our attention 🙂
Thanks for reading and best of luck on your quest to find a kickass blockchain job!
