What To Know About Working in DeFi

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of DeFi is that there are career opportunities for users of all skill sets. Here are a few areas where we recommend brushing up on before getting in touch with any of the companies listed below.

  • Composability – Whether you’re a developer who knows Solidity or someone handling business development, it’s crucial to understand how smart contracts work and their critical role in DeFi composability.
  • Twitter Presence – While certainly not required, we’ve found that most discourse regarding DeFi happens on Twitter. For a list of top accounts to follow to get caught up to speed, please reference our list of top accounts in 2020.
  • Ecosystem Overview – When going into a job interview, it’s always a plus to have knowledge about competitors in the field. To stay up on the top DeFi projects in any given sector, check out our project overviews.
