Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) March 18, 2015
Coinality and Plug And Play Tech Center are pleased to announce the fourth syndication of the Bitcoin Job Fair which will return to Silicon Valley on Saturday, April 18th, 2015. The event will take place in the Tech Center’s auditorium from 8:30am to 6:00pm and is expected to draw hundreds of attendees. Several top bitcoin startups including BitPay, ChangeTip, ShapeShift, and BitGo will be onsite to chat with job seekers.
Mike Casey and Paul Vigna, WSJ reporters and authors of “The Age of Cryptocurrency,” will also be present to answer questions during a Q&A Panel on Saturday evening.
“As we witness the continued investment into the bitcoin space, these companies need to hire: we’re trying to expedite that process and support the ecosystem by creating a venue for job seekers to gather, network and, hopefully, get a job,” said Scott Robinson, Founder and Director of Plug and Play’s FinTech accelerator.
The inaugural Sunnyvale event in May 2014 featured 34 startups and over 400 job seekers. Several top employers were available to discuss open positions with interested candidates, including BitPay, Circle, Xapo, and Kraken.
Subsequent Bitcoin Job Fairs were held in NYC and LA during the second half of 2014.
The College Crypto Network (CCN) will also be organizing a 2-day Bitcoin Hackathon (“BitHack”) as part of the Sunnyvale Bitcoin Job Fair. The BitHack event will kick off on Thursday, April 16th and will conclude at the end of the Bitcoin Job Fair on Saturday, April 18th at the Plug And Play Tech Center. Participants in the BitHack will have their choice of 4 APIs to build on top of, including BitPay, ChangeTip, ShapeShift and BitGo. The BitHack is meant to enable remote job seekers an opportunity to exhibit their skill sets for hiring startups in search of developer and engineering talent.
