More Than 1/3 of Blockchain-Related Advertised Jobs Are Remote-Based

Last updated 31st Jan 2023
  • 36% of blockchain-related adverts encourage remote-based work.
  • The decentralized nature of Blockchain encourages staff to work virtually in remote locations.

Blockchain jobs are becoming increasingly popular as the technology underlying cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin becomes more widely adopted. And as with many other types of jobs, Blockchain jobs are increasingly going remote.

According to research by BanklessTimes.com, 36% of blockchain-related advertised positions are remote-based. That figure is more than double the projected global average of 16% across employment sectors.

Speaking on the findings, Jonathan Merry, CEO of BanklessTimes, said:

The decentralized nature of Blockchain itself makes it well-suited for remote work, as there is no need for employees to be in the same physical location in order to collaborate on projects. As the Blockchain industry continues to grow, it is likely that the trend towards remote work will continue.

Remote Working Enhances Competitiveness

There are several reasons for the growing shift towards remote jobs in the Blockchain field. For one thing, Blockchain is still a relatively new field, which means that there is a lot of flexibility regarding job descriptions and duties.

This makes it easier for employers to allow employees to work from home or other remote locations. Additionally, the global nature of Blockchain means that companies often have employees in different time zones, which makes remote work even more convenient.

Blockchain businesses must continue to prioritize remote operations to stay competitive. It is the ideal method for enlarging the talent pool and gaining access to exceptional and qualified people abroad.

Expanding the Talent Pool

A blockchain firm that embraces a work-from-anywhere culture can access a larger talent pool. Thus, allowing it to embrace staff who have primary caregiving obligations. Remote working promotes a more diverse and inclusive work environment.

To reinvent the goal of global systems, blockchain firms believe that anyone may contribute to the expansion and development of open-source networks. It can achieve this regardless of location, nation, or level of financial means.

Software Development Is the Top Crypto Job

Software development is one of the most in-demand jobs in the crypto industry. In June 2021, 44% of blockchain software development jobs were remote, compared to 31% of other jobs. That's because as the industry continues to grow, so does the need for talented developers who can create the applications and platforms that drive it forward.

With so many projects and startups competing for attention, developers specializing in cryptocurrency can command a premium salary. In addition to their coding skills, they also need to be up-to-date on the latest trends and understand how the technology works. As the industry matures, we expect to see even more demand for software developers with cryptocurrency expertise.
