The hype surrounding blockchain industry, as well as the cryptocurrency sector, may have waned a little, but a report published by TheNextWeb suggests hiring expertise in the sector still grows, courtesy of a few ‘old-school’ tech companies.
It’s a given that prominent fintech startups had it rough in the past year, having to lay off some of their staff. Still, blockchain-related job vacancies seem to pop up every now and then, with a little spot available for cryptocurrency industry. More so, the technology appears to be fascinating enough to attract veterans in the tech space. IBM tops the chart in this regard.
IBM frequented the news with developments from its enterprise-grade blockchain project, but it’s not the only one on a blockchain hiring spree. Other legacy companies, Ernst & Young (EY), Oracle, Accenture, Deloitte, PwC, and Facebook make the list of employers looking into blockchain expertise.
Vacancies include areas in tech development and marketing, with blockchain engineer, senior software engineer, and blockchain development having more prominence. An earlier report concluded that demand in blockchain engineering expertise had increased by as much as 517 percent year-over-year.
Current estimates place the job offers at around 5,711 globally. According to information obtained from Glassdoor, the US, UK, and India seem to be largely interested in blockchain expertise and have quite a sizeable share in blockchain-related job adverts. Although China has also been know as an active blockchain hub, still more prospects are envisioned for 2023 for the nation to lead the industry.
Sentiments surrounding blockchain development centers around its premature state and while many may be optimistic about the industry, it may still be early for large scale implementation of enterprise-grade blockchain solutions. However, it is possible that most legacy players are finding their way into the ecosystem to hold a stake in the future of the emerging markets of decentralized technology.
