The Reason for PompCryptoJobs
Pompliano announced that by launching the jobs board, he plans to take advantage of his large followership base to bring companies and job candidates together in a talent marketplace.
He further explains that the platform seeks to create a seamless process of job search for individuals looking to enter into the crypto space. It will also help crypto employers by reducing the friction involved in choosing the best candidates possible.
The crypto industry is growing at an immense pace. As a result, it hosts a multitude of machine coders and social media scrum-half. Earlier this month, owners of CoinDesk, Digital Currency Group, posted over 60 new job vacancies. Further buttressing the fact that the industry is growing at a fast pace.
Pomp said in an interview;
I think that there is an obvious need in the market right now. You’ve got millions of Americans and people around the world that are out of work, and millions more who want to transition from their existing job. Meanwhile, cryptocurrency companies are growing and hiring very fast, but there’s no single place where the job candidates and the employers can meet each other.
The The Business Model for PompCryptoJobs
The revenue model for PompCryptoJobs involves employers paying a monthly fee to list positions, Pomp explained. Depending on the nature of the job, the number of listings, and the company, employers will be charged between $200 and $2,500 monthly to list jobs on the platform.
He expressed his delight that some leading names in the crypto industry, Gemini, Coinbase, and BlockFi, have already signed up to list jobs on the platform.
He noted that “These three firms all represent the exact types of companies that I would want my friends and family to work at, so it was natural to kick this off with them.”
