Since 2016  cryptocurrency startups are the big thing, it’s one of the largest non-corporate startup opportunities. Needless to say, it is becoming an important source of profitable for technical and yes, non-technical professionals.

Money is pouring into cryptocurrency startups, as cryptocurrency companies are growing, they have achieved the ability to raise larger amounts of money at higher valuations, and that precisely is what attracts top talent.

The job listings continuously grow by extreme percentages. Not only pointing towards experienced engineers able to work in cryptocurrency projects, but the need of engineers interested in blockchain technologies continues doubling constantly.

There are also open positions needing to be filled in marketing, business development, operations, customer support, and other job functions that don’t require a technical background. Similar to any other high-growth startups, cryptocurrency companies need to hire at job functions across the entire organization, and fast.

Where is this hiring boom coming from exactly?
Since its inception, the cryptocurrency belonged to faithful early-adopters. Now it’s been open for a year and more to a mainstream audience. When Bitcoin and Etherium first ran-up, the level of interest from the investor community has continued to grow at a record high.

Cryptocurrency companies have expanded beyond traditional funding methods, now headlines of cryptocurrency projects announce millions of dollars in seconds through Initial Coin Offerings.

The large sums of money going into the cryptocurrency space has led a hiring boom at startups. Small teams find themselves capitalized in ways we’ve never seen before, money needs to be well spent at the start, and they are doing it by hiring.

The point of joining a crypto startup lies within the fact that, by knowing a little bit of the terminology, and being willing to constantly learn, your professional background “almost” doesn’t matter because cryptocurrency companies need help in design, marketing, UI, and UX, and other critical job functions. There’s a lot of room for individuals with soft skills in non-technical roles to contribute in these startups.

Benefits of joining a cryptocurrency startup:
   Better salaries: Across the board in both technical and non-technical roles, cryptocurrency startup salaries beat the industry norm by about 10-20%. It is also worth noting that most cryptocurrency companies have great perks, including profit-sharing arrangements.

   More remote flexibility: Working in the cryptocurrency industry improves your chance of being able to land a remote gig by 22 percent. This doesn’t account for numerous cryptocurrency startups who have flexible work policies where you are only required to be at the office on certain days.

About the non-technical roles:

Most of them are related to Operations, Marketing, and UX/UI Design.

This job posts may seem standard job openings in any industry though it is completely different in the sense that it will require a gigantic disposition to learn and grow, fast.
