Gap in Demand for Tech Talent

With regards to blockchain job postings, Canada had the highest growth rate of 560%. Singapore is in a distant second with a growth rate of 180%, while India’s growth rate of 145% puts it at number three. The United States and Germany, which both saw an 82% increase in the number of blockchain job postings, are tied in fourth place.

Concerning the composition of talent in the blockchain industry, the Linkedin/OKX study found finance talent to have the highest proportion of people, at 19%. Engineering talent accounts for the next highest proportion at 16%. Business development, IT, and sales talent complete the top five list with proportions of 6% each.

As to the large gap in demand for technical talent, the study’s report said:

“There is currently a large gap in demand for technical talent in the global blockchain talent pool. Up until June 2022, in terms of job postings, engineering talent tops the global demand for blockchain talent, followed by IT talent. Product management, marketing and human resources are close behind. The finance category, which currently ranks first in terms of blockchain talent, is only sixth in terms of hiring demand.”

The study report also acknowledges that one of the consequences of the demand for blockchain talent outstripping supply has been the “global blockchain talent mobility [that] is characterized by short tenure and high talent turnover.”
