Pompliano hopes to use his influence to bring crypto-oriented firms and potential employees together.
Morgan Creek Digital co-founder Anthony Pompliano has launched a crypto jobs board with Gemini, BlockFi and Coinbase.
In a tweet on Wednesday, Pompliano disclosed that PompCryptoJobs was live and had ‘hundreds’ of jobs listings from its three launch partners.
We need as many talented people working in Bitcoin and crypto as possible.
Today I am launching a job board focused exclusively on helping people find jobs at the best organizations. 🚨

The crypto influencer, who has close to 500,000 followers on Twitter is also the host of The Pomp Podcast. He previously worked at Facebook and Snapchat, spent almost two years at Full Tilt Capital before co-founding Morgan Creek Digital with Mark Yusko and Jason Williams in 2018. He has been quite vocal about crypto, most recently endorsing PlanB’s Bitcoin Stock-to-Flow model.
He hopes to use his influence to bring crypto-oriented firms and potential employees together.
“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,” Anthony Pompliano said.
Both employers and job seekers can create accounts on PompCryptoJobs. Aspirants can set up an account for free by simply submitting their name, email and testimonial. The cost of listing jobs for companies ranges from $200 to $2500. Jobs can either be in-person or remote and applications are accepted from anywhere in the world unless otherwise specified.
With recent widespread interest in blockchain and cryptocurrencies, we can expect increased demand for people to work in the industry.
“Crypto companies are exploding with growth. They are scaling and looking to hire thousands of employees across the industry. The job candidates don’t know which companies are hiring and the corporations are having a hard time finding the right candidate”, Pompliano commented.
The recent appointment of Gary Gensler as head of the Securities Exchange Commission of the US (SEC) could be a good thing for bitcoin in particular and crypto in general. He has been described as “very pro-Bitcoin”. His reputation for strict regulation as Chairman of the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and vast knowledge of blockchain and cryptocurrencies (he recently taught a course on the subject at MIT) could result in better regulation of crypto-assets and more trust from skeptics.
