Blockchain technology is the emerging darling of 2018 with hopeful industries incorporating it willingly. It has the potential to transform disruptively and every industry. However, the cryptocurrency markets shed almost 79 percent of their capital and the field is dogged by regulations and legal hurdles as of now.

The present fintech job market:

For terrible market and economic conditions, youngsters still love the fintech career in the blockchain field because of its potential and the emerging thrust for fintech industries. The crypto market from where it originated seemingly has had no impact on the hiring process and scope for the blockchain segment.

According to Glassdoor reports, the annual jump in recruitments for this field for August 17-18 was 300% and median salaries paid in India were above the national average salary by a considerable amount! Upwork states that for employers the most sought-after skill was blockchain technology.

Even venture capitalists in 2018 have boosted their investments 280% in blockchain industries. All these statistics are excellent for those who are interested in making their fintech career. Of course, finding the right stable job involves doing a course to develop your skills, researching jobs and the job market, training for interviews and much, much more. It is still worth it at the moment.

So, let us quickly look at what jobs are being the leaders for recruitments.

The required skills:

The trending tools, languages and technological suites required for a fintech career today are: 

  • C Suite languages like C and C#
  • Python suite languages
  • Java Suite languages including Java, JavaScript ES6, JSON, js and Javascript.
  • Simplicity, Serpent, Solidity, Go, Rust and such languages.
  • SQL and NoSQL
  • HyperLedger Fabric

Among the soft attributes required you must include

  • Innovation and creative thinking: These attributes are important in every evolving field where standard practices and technologies may not always be available. Remember to simplify attitudes and think afresh.
  • Intent, dedication, and passion: Understanding the intent of technology helps achieve the results for a better experience for clients who have a passion for new technologies. These attributes are a must with dollops of dedication thrown in.
  • The will to learn and humility: Emerging technologies and companies may be unstable. The will to learn helps build humility and the ability to take things in your stride in spite of hurdles.
  • Team spirit and communication skills: These attributes are non-negotiable for lean teams who are cross-functional and use Agile practices.

Basically, one must believe in the job and contribute to the company’s growth using the jumble-box of attributes and all skill sets mentioned above.
