The number one position on Upworks US skills index is now blockchain expertise, making these the most sought-after positions with current employers, writes Forbes.

The Upworks index is a strong indicator of the rising need within the US professional’s employment market for employees with blockchain experience and also is a gauge which indicates that blockchain has arrived and it is clearly not going away any time soon. According to Burning Glass Technologies, there were more than 5,743 jobs posted needing blockchain skills in the last 12 months.

As Bitcoin News has reported, multinationals such as IBM and Samsung have shown the world the value of the new technologies by embracing blockchain wholeheartedly. Companies such as Walmart are updating their supply chains and state governments in the US are increasingly turning to the technology to streamline government departments and state law.

What kind of blockchain related positions become available very much depends on demand. Blockchain developers, or engineers are top of the tree, being in high demand due to these positions highly technical nature. The whole process of developing a blockchain platform very much relies on the expertise that these professionals can bring to the project.

Blockchain project managers and designers are also in demand. The manager is responsible for tying technical aspects of the blockchain to the company’s actual business requirements. The job calls on standard management skills that might have been earned in other industries, using this ability to communicate to customers who may not have the tech skills nor vocabulary, but while still having the technical know-how themselves to communicate with staff.

One aspect of the tech that is becoming increasingly important, and perhaps is illustrated quite graphically by the recent Italian court case involving BitGrail, is the need for companies to employ a blockchain attorney or legal consultant in order to tackle the legal ramifications of using blockchain.

It is likely that the need for these professionals will swell over the next two years as blockchain takes on a more mainstream profile across sectors. Bernard Marr, writing in Forbes, suggests, “Blockchain has become what the “cloud” was in the mid-2000s, poised to be the most highly talked about technology and one that offers tremendous professional opportunity.”
