Beyond LinkedIn: Crypto and Blockchain Job Listings

December 6, 2021

Here is an important resource for anyone seeking employment in the budding fields of crypto currency and blockchain technology—CryptoJobsList. The site currently hosts over four thousand opportunities for crypto currency and blockchain professionals. Each listing specifies at a glance the employer, the location (many are remote), how long the post has been up, how many applicants it has gotten, and whether it pays in crypto currency. Clicking on each, of course, leads to more details and an application link. Scrolling all the way to the bottom of the page reveals options to browse by role or by location. There is also a link for employers seeking workers; listings cost a mere $1.99 each. Between the listings and those features, founder Raman Shalupau shares a few words about his site:

“I’ve started this job board back in end of September 2017, when I was looking for engineering jobs in crypto currency companies myself. I had to jump from site to site, looking for positions in various exchanges, wallets, and research projects. Opportunities were scattered all over the place and pretty hard to come by. So I thought it would be cool to have a centralized (the irony) site with all the positions. I thought no one will care about the job board and it’ll die off in a week, but, apparently more and more people cared enough about it to start applying to jobs, sharing Crypto Jobs List with friends and, of course, companies started listing their job posts. Today I hope you are enjoying the site, applying to jobs and getting response from hundreds of crypto startups that have listings on CJL to day. I strongly believe that blockchain technology and crypto currencies are still in their infancy stages, almost like the internet in 1990s. The ‘Facebooks’ and ‘Googles’ of crypto-era are yet to be founded and I believe that the only way to grow this industry is to stop checking coin prices every morning, and start building the technology, products and companies that will fuel the coin market growth.”

The author goes on to explain the differences between the terms blockchain, crypto currency, and crypto, so check that out if the distinctions are still murky to you. In terms of employment, “blockchain” positions can involve a more broad range of applications, like supply chains for example. Jobs in “crypto currency” tend to be at crypto currency-focused startups. If Shalupau is correct and the crypto field is still in its infancy, this site could lead to one’s chance to get in on the ground floor.
