Specialized blockchain developers are in high demand by recruiters. But, in France, the candidates are not jostling, according to LesJeudis.
France lacks blockchain developers, the decentralized transaction management technology. This is in any case the point of view of the job site Thursdays.
The birth certificate of the blockchain dates back to the creation of the bitcoin cryptocurrency in November 2008. However, for the CareerBuilder group site, the interest of recruiters increased with the emergence in 2015 of the Ethereum blockchain.
Since then, organizations have wanted to better understand the potential and risks associated with this technology. And equip themselves with talents, developers in mind, who allow them to obtain a competitive advantage or not to be left behind by the competition.
The most demanding business sectors today are, in addition to banking-finance-insurance, consulting, telecoms and industry, according to LesJeudis.
Both public sector administrations and businesses are paying attention.
Master C ++, Java and Python
The demand for technical profiles associated with the blockchain is thus on the rise. Large groups, SMEs and startups, who want to create decentralized applications via the blockchain, are seeking developers.
“Recruiters are mainly looking for profiles of English-speaking developers or engineers for this type of position, with a perfect command of C ++, Java and Python programming languages,” said Servanne Morin, communications and partnerships manager for the LesJeudis group.
“High level skills in data mining, encryption and IT security are also required,” she added. But these profiles are rare and the candidates themselves direct their research towards other specialties.
In this context, the demand for skills associated with the blockchain exceeds the supply.
Are the salaries up to par? In France, the average annual salary of blockchain developers is between 50,000 and 60,000 euros. In the United States, according to another source (Hired), it can range from $ 150,000 to $ 175,000.
