List of Online Platforms for finding Web3 Jobs
In this guide, we are going to share some amazing unheard-of online platforms for finding your next Web3 job. Make sure to give a thorough browse to each of these before joining and applying:
- Talent Protocol
- Crypto Jobs
Talent Protocol is one of a kind Web3 based platform for kick-starting your career in the industry. First impression of the web app might surprise you, so be sure to go through all the details.
The way it works is quite different from other jobs based platforms you might have used. I’ll try to explain the whole process sequentially:
- You sign up and create your profile.
- Own your profile as an NFT.
- Launch your own free token and let others support your career journey.
I know it sounds confusing at first. But the on-boarding process is quite intuitive. Once you start the signing up process, the rest will be easy.
One of the greatest bonuses of joining the platform is you can launch your own token and get some free tokens to start with. Not only you will be able to apply for amazing Web3 jobs through this platform but also allow other users support your journey by purchasing your custom made tokens. Until you reach your goals, you will still be earning something by letting other people sponsor your journey.
Braintrust has been making huge waves in the talent industry recently. They have built a platform that is so much more than a jobs portal. It’s more like a community. You can join their Discord channel and introduce yourself to everyone. They have a tier based system that ensures that the best opportunities are available to the most active members on the platform.
One of the best features of being a Braintrust member is that you get to keep 100% of your earnings to yourself. They only charge the commission from the employers, not the employees, unlike Upwork that takes more than 20% of your earnings.
You can apply for both short-term and long-term roles. However, you will need to get your profile approved first. You can do that by creating your profile and filling in all the details. Once it’s 100% complete, it will automatically be sent for review.
Braintrust also has some amazing learning resources and courses to help you land the best opportunities.
Crypto.Jobs is a great website for finding and applying to the latest web3 jobs in the industry. The one thing I love about this portal is the ease-of-use. It’s super simple to join the portal, create your profile and start applying for jobs right away.
This website usually has a very diverse range of job opportunities. You can apply for content writer roles, developer roles, as a community manager, graphic designer and so many others.
Some of the biggest names in the industry use this platform to post jobs including Consensys, OKEX, Coinlist, houbi, IOTA etc. You can also see how many other people have applied to the role you’re interested it.
Kleoverse has been gaining a lot of popularity recently. The main reason behind it is this application allows you to create your profile and apply for jobs in a completely decentralized way. You can sign up using your crypto wallet, claim your NFT badge and start applying for jobs.
Kleoverse offers jobs as well as Bounties. If you only interested in short-term tasks and win bounties then this is a great place to start.
You will have greater chances of success and more exposure to great opportunities if you join and participate in their Discord community.
Kleoverse also has an Ambassador program that allows you to earn money while referring other potential candidates and companies to the network. You can find more details about it on their Discord.
HireVibes is a relatively new web3 talent network that allows you to create a profile and apply for junior and senior level jobs. The best thing is, on top of the salary you will also earn a small amount in crypto rewards.
They are building a great eco-system around some of the biggest names in the blockchain industry including Ethereum, Stacks, Polkadot, Avalanche and others.
You can filter all the jobs based on salary, location, title and contract type. You can also see how many other people have applied for a specific role.
