When it comes to posting blockchain job ads, the“Big Four” professional consulting firms Deloitte, KPMG and EY are all in the top five. This observation is according to new data from Indeed.com. Indeed.com says that the “Big Four” Consulting firms form majority of blockchain job market.
Data covering the period from February 2018 to February 2019 was released by the employment site in April. The latest figures for job postings relating to blockchain, cryptocurrency and bitcoin in the U.S. were the basis of research.
At the top of the list was Deloitte, with IBM and KPMG in second and third place. EY and Accenture (another major consulting firm) came fourth and fifth.
The firm has been very active in the blockchain space. Also, participating in trials, developing products and offering services around the tech. Thus, Deloitte’s top placing is not surprising.
The consulting giant previously said:
“We envision that [Deloitte’s] ever-evolving and the nimble team will build upon our past success in helping our clients, which includes 92 percent of the financial service companies listed on the Fortune 500 list, to hone their blockchain-backed offerings.”
Indeed.com says that the “Big Four” Consulting firms form majority of blockchain job market. JPMorgan has placed the most ads for blockchain staff over the last year. This is according to Indeed.com’s data of all the financial firms.
No other Wall Street institutions made Indeed’s top 10.
Indeed.com’s economist, Andrew Flowers, told Forbes that it’s “notable that there’s a lack of financial and banking companies hiring for something that’s made to replace money.”
According to Indeed’s data, another couple of companies also made it to the top 10. Microsoft and ethereum development studio ConsenSys, in eighth and tenth place, respectively.
The data shows that the share of job postings per million increased by 90 percent. Searches per million on its site for roles involving blockchain, cryptocurrency and bitcoin declined by 67 percent during the period.
