AngelList: Cryptocurrency-Related Job Openings Nearly Doubled In Past 6 Months

The number of openings for cryptocurrency-related jobs listed on Angel.co has nearly doubled in the past six months, as employers seek new talent to meet both technical and non-technical needs.

A report by job networking platform AngelList (sometimes referred to by its URL, Angel.co) states that cryptocurrency-related job listings on the site have nearly doubled in the past six months. It explains that “cryptocurrency companies are seeing unparalleled investment and growth in recent months” and that the field “remains one of the largest non-corporate startup opportunities.”

The site claims to feature over 2,500 listings for technical roles, some of the most prominent among them being blockchain engineers, full-stack developers, and front-end developers, and over 1,000 non-technical roles, with the highest number of listings in the operations, marketing, and UX/UI design fields. In both categories, “cryptocurrency startup salaries beat the industry norm by about 10-20%.” The report adds that “most cryptocurrency companies have great perks, including profit-sharing arrangements.”

It also quotes Matt Galligan, a product designer with blockchain firm The Picks and Shovels Co., who gushed, “Cryptocurrency employees are more likely to enjoy distributed working arrangements and are geographically disperse compared to traditional candidates,” going on to note the symmetry between the decentralizing nature of the technology and the distributed workforce.

According to a study issued early this year by the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance, “The exchanges sector has the highest number of operating entities and employs more people than any other industry sector” that the authors surveyed. At the time the research was conducted, the 51 exchanges from which data was collected spanned 27 countries and employed 1,157 people.

Finally, the Angel.co report included the observation, “From the AngelList data we looked at, in the first half of 2017 alone there was more money invested in cryptocurrency startups than in all of 2016 combined.”
