While crypto is known for boom and bust cycles, careers in blockchain are certainly on the up. Increasingly popular with investors, businesses, and people interested in finance, as more and more people get on board, the demand for jobs in cryptocurrency is only headed one way.
Good news, crypto is not just for the software developers. While they still make up most of the job postings, there’s also room for marketers, salespeople, accounting, operations, finance and HR. Remote-friendly, fast-moving, and with decent salaries, the crypto space is not one to overlook.
