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.
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.
