74 active results for opportunities connected to digital assets are presently available on the Fidelity job posting. These roles are in the fields of blockchains, financial analysis, customer support, accounting and finance product design, and consultancy services, including regulation.
The bulk of the postings come from the company’s New York, Colorado, Texas and Utah offices, with majority coming out of the Boston hq according to the spokesman, the new positions will be spread out across the US, the UK, and Ireland.
Fidelity’s recruiting binge comes as several of the biggest crypto-native companies, including BlockFi, Coinbase, Crypto.com and Gemini, have been on a recruiting binge, laying off 20%, 18%, and 10% of their workforces, respectively.
The significant layoffs appear to have made it easier for established companies like Fidelity to hire new crypto expertise.
Given how eager Fidelity has been providing more extensive digital asset-related solutions in response to rising investor demand, the growth of the department of the digital asset should come as no surprise.
