About Us

What is our story?

Blockgram can help your business define what type of Blockchain and FinTech professionals you need. We focus on three key services: 1) recruiting, 2) staffing and 3) talent acquisition on just those two sectors, Blockchain and FinTech.

How can Blockgram help?

Blockgram provides Blockchain and Financial Technology recruiting staffing, and talent acquisition services for companies of all sizes. The recruiting and staffing arm of Blockgram uses a proprietary human capital search platform to first locate and then screen thousands of candidates. Once that effort is complete, we then meet with the top candidates individually and choose and rank the top ones for each posting we are in the process of filling. At that point, we meet with the client once more to ensure that our proposed candidates meet the clients’ standards.

As the entire crypto technology and Blockchain industries are multidisciplinary, we look for professionals who have experience in multiple sectors. For example, this would include matching a Blockchain Engineer who has proficiency in building decentralized applications on the Ethereum or NEO smart contract platform to a company who is looking to build client-facing applications that will be used by thousands of users concurrently. Another example would include acquiring talent on a recurring basis to fill dozens of Blockchain Project Manager roles for a group of growing clients. The talent profile for each role is unique, however, generally speaking, Blockchain professionals will have some direct experience in: point of sale implementation to accept Bitcoin and Ethereum payments, transaction processing systems on different Blockchains, improving the reliability of information security protocols, building solutions using crypto technology (e.g. public, private, and hybrid Blockchains), and being well versed in multiple programming environments and languages.

Why should you use us vs. the competition?

Our team is made up of human resource professionals with over 40 years of experience working for Fortune 50 institutions, we are confident in our approach, to say the least. The majority of our careers have been focused on how to leverage technology to drive decision making, how to design and construct high performing teams that function across verticals and geo-borders, how to use human capital as a sustainable competitive differentiation, how to drive results while still having strategic objectives in mind, and finally creating environmental and social value through our partnership programs with non-profit organizations in emerging markets.

We have the largest pool of highly specialized Blockchain and FinTech resources, this is our intellectual property and we have spent years building and fostering these relationships.

What is our vision?

Being technology enthusiasts with expertise and intellectual curiosity in cryptography and distributed computing, we have been addicted to learning as much as we can about Blockchain since 2011. After reading Satoshi’s whitepaper, we were convinced of the enormous potential this technology will have and how it will be one of the most significant computing paradigms of our time, alongside the Internet, Mobile Phones, and Social Media platforms.

Blockgram’s goal is to help businesses benefit from the unique characteristics of Blockchain and Financial Technology by providing them with the best talent possible. With a strong team, the sky is the limit, you can reduce transaction processing costs astronomically, drastically improve productivity, and optimize your end to end client interactions all while experimenting with bleeding edge technologies.

For the past year or so, “Blockchain, not Bitcoin” has been a common refrain among the financial services set — meant to imply both that the technology behind Bitcoin is what’s truly revolutionary, not the currency itself, and that private Blockchains (Intranets) can be just as transformative as public ones like the Bitcoin/Ether Blockchain ( similar to the Internet). It is a technology with great potential to disrupt not just the financial industry, but many others over the course of the next few years. The decentralization properties of the Blockchain provide financial and governing independence from everyone. It can distribute the wealth in a much more effective way than the traditional banking systems, and we are proud to be a part of the movement.
