According to a new Seen By Indeed study, crypto and blockchain job postings have risen 26% since 2018, with four-year growth in job postings at 1,457%. This is despite a drop in job searches for crypto and blockchain jobs, which peaked around the major Bitcoin rally in late 2017 and has been steadily dropping since then.
Apparently the top 5 jobs in the crypto and blockchain sector are software engineer, senior software engineer, software architect, full stack developer, and front end developer. Essentially, the top jobs in the crypto and blockchain field involve programming according to this study, rather than trading or investing.
This study also found that the top 15 companies which are hiring in the crypto and blockchain sector are Deloitte, IBM, Accenture, Cisco, Collins Aerospace, Ernst & Young, Coinbase, Overstock, Ripple, Verizon, Circle, Kraken, ConsenSys, JPMorgan Chase, and Signature Bank. It is notable how the top 15 employers in the field are a mix of well-known crypto and blockchain companies as well as major corporations and banks that are not typically associated with crypto.
Overall, this study reveals that the crypto and blockchain sector continues to be a flourishing field, and it is impressive that job opportunities rose throughout 2018 despite the bear market.
