Blockchain & Crypto Recruitment – Executive Search

Blockchain technology is nascent stages. Crypto is all the hype and billions are poured into blockchain/crypto/fintech projects. This is a perfect recipe for the talent gap, when demand for professionals with relevant experience by far exceeds the availability.

While a job posting provides your vacancy with a significant exposure within the relevant candidate pool of blockchain professionals, it does have one significant drawback by design. Its scope is (mostly) limited to the “active candidates” – those who do check job ads on the regular basis. A large portion of the candidate pool will never see your job ad. These are the “passive candidates”, who are currently occupied and are not actively seeking a career change. Usually, these are the best performers on the market.

Pro-actively tapping into the passive candidate pool is called executive or direct search. It is the most efficient recruitment technique for the mid, senior and executive level positions. This is how top companies hire mission critical experts and stay on the top.

We are one of the very few recruitment providers in this highly complex niche who actually understand what they are doing. Combining profound executive search experience with in-depth understanding of the blockchain & crypto space, we excel at helping startups, corporations and governments to bring the best people on board.
