With the upsurge of blockchain and its role in more and more scenarios, blockchain related human resources have become a hot topic in the industry for many times. On March 29, a reporter from Beijing business daily combed the recruitment information of several blockchain industries and found that Internet companies, technology companies, banks and other institutions are engaged in recruitment work, among which the most popular one is still “technical post”, and the supply and demand of high-end talents in the industry are also different. Analysts suggest that practitioners should start with technology and R & D direction, and master the underlying technology and ability of blockchain in order to maintain their career.
According to the recruitment information of “senior engineer of blockchain R & D” released by SF technology on March 29, this position will be mainly responsible for the architecture design, module development and pre research of innovative technology of blockchain project products, and the job requirements will all focus on the field of professional knowledge, including familiar with cryptography encryption algorithm, public chain and alliance chain technology. For this position, SF science and technology put forward a face-to-face salary discussion.
In the recruitment information, Beijing Business Daily reporter also found the figure of the central bank’s financial technology research institute. According to the information, the Financial Technology Research Institute of the people’s Bank of China intensively released a batch of recruitment information on February 18. Among them, there are six blockchain related posts, which are needed in Beijing, Shenzhen and Suzhou. Blockchain related posts include blockchain senior solution engineer, blockchain senior technical expert, R & D Engineer and researcher. The salary level can be divided into three levels The annual salary ranges from 240000 yuan to 480000 yuan and 360000 yuan to 720000 yuan, respectively.
Han Haiting, a researcher at the Research Center for blockchain and electronic market of Copenhagen University, told Beijing Business Daily that this recruitment situation is determined by the prospect of the blockchain industry, and it is difficult for traditional enterprises to spend a lot of manpower and material resources on the research and development of blockchain. Enterprise demand is mostly reflected in the field of technology, this part of talent is also the most important component.
In fact, since the rise of the blockchain industry, “high salary” and “urgent employment” have been hot topics in the industry. In view of the public release requirements of various recruitment platforms, among the recruitment Posts released around the blockchain, the most popular one is still “technical post”.
Compared with the rumor that blockchain industry used to make millions of annual salary in the past, there is still a big gap in most posts. The salary of ordinary technical posts is mostly concentrated in the range of 20000 yuan to 50000 yuan. Only some institutions have a monthly salary of more than 50000 yuan, and only a few have a monthly salary of more than 100000 yuan. For other jobs such as operation and promotion, the salary is about 10000 yuan, which is not obviously different from other industries.
Sun Yang, director of the financial technology research center of Suning Institute of finance, believes that from the current recruitment situation, blockchain talent recruitment is more pragmatic than in previous years. From this perspective, the demand for blockchain technical talents will continue to expand in the future.
Han Haiting further introduced that compared with previous years, the number of “blockchain researcher” posts has gradually decreased, because the popular science work for blockchain business model and basic concepts has been basically completed. When the bad news is cleared, more and more enterprises gradually realize that the technical personnel are the supporters of the blockchain concept, industry and market. “An annual salary of more than one million is also a top-level technical talent. Only organizations with real talent demand will invest in this part.”
Currently, there are certification standards for blockchain technical talents. On February 22, the Ministry of human resources and social security and the Ministry of industry and information technology issued the national vocational and technical skills standards for blockchain engineering and technical personnel, which made it clear that blockchain engineering and technical personnel refer to engineering and technical personnel engaged in blockchain architecture design, underlying technology, system application, system testing, system deployment, operation and maintenance.
In addition, in terms of the imbalance between supply and demand of human resources, the reporter of Beijing business daily noticed that among the enterprises currently recruiting, there are some organizations whose recruitment information has been released for a long time but is still constantly updated, and some of them have printed the word “urgent recruitment” in the recruitment information.
For this problem, Han Haiting pointed out that it is very difficult for institutions to find qualified and ideal candidates. This is because although the blockchain has developed so far, its application scenarios are still not understood by the general public and job seekers. Even when scientific research institutes train talents, it is difficult to accurately know the market demand.
Bo Sheng, founding partner of chain stone capital, also introduced to Beijing Business Daily that at present, the demand for general talents in the industry is not strong, and the more contradictory point is that it is difficult to find middle and high-end talents.
“At present, the blockchain industry also lacks suitable and sustainable scenarios to support the long-term development of relevant talents, and some institutions are chasing the trend of fashion, lacking sustainability and specificity, which eventually further increases the mobility of talents.” Sun Yang added.
In recent years, blockchain technology has been applied in more and more fields. In the 14th five year plan for the national economic and social development of the people’s Republic of China and the outline of long-term goals for 2035, it is also explicitly mentioned that “the cultivation and expansion of emerging digital industries, such as artificial intelligence, big data, blockchain, cloud computing, network security, etc., will be strengthened”.
For blockchain personnel training, some colleges and universities have added blockchain related courses to fill this gap. Sun Yang believes that in addition to colleges and universities actively cultivating blockchain compound talents, financial institutions and financial technology companies also choose technical talents with close majors to cultivate directional talents in distributed ledger, encryption algorithm, smart contract, digital currency, etc.
