From the Hiring kit
Moving well-beyond its cryptocurrency roots, blockchain technology has quickly become a sought-after component of application development in the modern business enterprise. Unlike public blockchain applications like cryptocurrency, however, permissioned blockchain applications can be used to secure transactions and automate access control for a variety of business activities across many industries.
Because of its status as a relatively new technology, employers cannot expect to hire blockchain engineers with significant experience in the development of practical blockchain business applications. The more realistic approach is to search for candidates with advanced software engineering experience and a least some familiarity or experience with applied blockchain technology. However, because of the emerging state of the technology, and regardless of previous experience, any newly hired blockchain engineer must also be able to learn and develop additional skills through on-the-job training.
