This post showcases fifty four web3 startups that are hiring right now. It shows what web3 companies have the most job openings, what the most popular web3 jobs are and where web3 companies are headquartered.
I recently published a breakdown of where web3 came from and web3 companies to look out for in 2022. In this post I'd like to cover the web3 companies that are hiring the most, the most in demand web3 jobs and what web3 jobs entail.
For the Employbl project we harvest data about thousands of tech companies and startups, primarily focusing on ones headquartered in the United States. We pull in information about funding rounds, founders, job listings and other corporate information like founded year and approximate number of employees.
Our current list of web3 companies currently has 356 companies on it ranging from big public companies like Coinbase down to new Pre Seed and Seed stage web3 startups. We're only pulling in job listings for about fifty four companies though. In the future we hope to pull in hiring data for more companies and provide a path for employers to promote their job listings. Without further ado let's get into the data.
Here is our full list of web3 companies that are hiring right now, including the amount of open jobs they are advertising, how much they've raised from investors, where their corporate headquarters is and when they were founded. I've also linked to each company's Employbl profile where you can learn more about the job listings, funding rounds and the founders of these web3 companies.

I hope this provides a guide on which companies are still actively hiring in this "crypto winter" and bear market. All of these companies have over twelve hundred jobs they're hiring for right now. Next up let's look at what these tech companies are actually hiring for.
Examining all of these jobs next up we're going to sort them out by job title. The first approach I did was to group and sort by job title. This isn't perfect though because only does an exact match on job title. A
Senior Software Engineer and
Sr. Software Engineer, Platform Team are both basically the same job title but aren't an exact match. Anyway using this naive approach we still get some interesting results. These are the most in demand job titles web3 companies are hiring for now:
|Job Title||# of open jobs|
|Senior Software Engineer||7|
|Senior Product Manager||7|
|Senior Product Designer||6|
|Principal Software Engineer||5|
|Product Marketing Manager||4|
|Senior Software Engineer - Backend||4|
|Sales Development Representative||3|
|Full Stack Engineer||3|
|Staff Software Engineer||3|
Next we're going to group similar jobs to see if we can get more signal as to what web3 companies are hiring for these days. I broke these jobs into their categories to get some counts. Overall there are:
467 jobs with the word "Engineer" in the tile at web3 companies.
154 Software Engineer jobs at web3 companies. This includes senior level software engineering roles.
69 Product Manager jobs at web3 companies, including senior level roles.
54 Design jobs at web3 companies, including senior level roles.
48 Marketing jobs at web3 companies, including senior level and director roles.
45 Sales jobs at web3 companies, including senior level and director roles.

I hope this post gives direction to people looking for jobs in web3 about what companies are hiring now and the types of jobs web3 companies are hiring for!
