Every year Linkedin publishes a new job report analyzing the market. This year, LinkedIn’s 2018 Emerging Jobs Report, shows a tremendous need for blockchain developers.
Yesterday, we wrote an article on, “A Deep Look at the Different Skill Requirements for Blockchain Developers”
Published on December 13th, the report aims to help LinkedIn users, particularly in the US to “make informed decisions” about their career by providing an insight of the jobs and skills that are growing rapidly around the country within this year alone.
On top of the list is Blockchain Developer that’s growing by 33 times compared to last year, with Solidity, blockchain, Ethereum, cryptocurrency and Node.js as the most demanded skills.
Location-wise, San Fransisco, New York City, and Atlanta are the cities that have the highest demand for the role, while company-wise, IBM, ConsenSys and Chainyard are listed as the top hiring companies. The big names hiring blockchain developers is not surprising at all since most of them are launching enterprise related blockchain services.
Regardless the current market situation, blockchain technology, including cryptocurrency is growing, although as LinkedIn said, “Only time will tell if blockchain will be a long-standing trend in the job market.”
Educational institutions are aware of this, which is shown by a report that stated that 42% of the top 50 universities in the world are offering courses on blockchain and cryptocurrency.
