A recent study by recruiting site Glassdoor found that crypto and blockchain-related job opportunities significantly increased in the U.S. this year, despite the slump in cryptocurrency prices.
As of August 2018 there were 1,775 unique blockchain-related job openings in the U.S., while at this time last year there were 446 similar job ads, which represents a 300 percent year-over-year increase.
The most in-demand blockchain roles are primarily technical and engineering, with software engineer as the clear leader, comprising 19 percent of total job listings. More broadly, engineering, technology, and science roles represent 55 percent of total job openings.
Despite the leadership of tech roles, Glassdoor notes the need for analyst relations manager, product manager, risk analyst, and marketing manager roles as well.
In August, Cointelegraph reported a 50 percent increase in the number of roles related to blockchain or cryptocurrencies in Asian markets — Australia, India, Singapore and Malaysia — since 2017.
