About Us

Blockgram is a recruiting firm that specializes in finding the right talent to fill key positions in companies in the financial technology and blockchain industries. More specifically, we find and place individuals with expertise in cryptocurrency technology and decentralized applications of different versions of blockchains. Blockgram was founded by experienced professionals in business and technology who believe in the potential of the blockchain to revolutionize the financial industry. Our enthusiasm for the technology informs our mission to support companies in developing blockchain’s potential by providing them with the best talent possible.

Our firm provides three services to companies of all sizes in the fintech and blockchain industries: recruiting, staffing, and talent acquisition. 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 meet with the top candidates individually and rank them 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.

Talent acquisition differs from recruiting and staffing in goals and time frame. As recruiters, we match qualified candidates to open positions. As talent acquisition specialists, we help companies plan ahead by identifying candidates with very specific skill sets for future leadership positions. Leaders in the blockchain and fintech industries typically have experience in such areas as application development, information security, crypto-technology, and management. With our connections and experience in these industries, we are able to reach out to professionals who may not be on the job market but might consider a move for the right opportunity.

Our fintech and blockchain clients tend to be innovators who are engaged in disrupting the status quo through new technology. Finding team members with highly specialized skills, knowledge of cutting edge technology, and the drive to innovate is crucial to their work. We are able to provide our clients with access to professionals with a wide variety of skills and experience. Whether our clients are preparing for an ICO, developing smart contracts, or building decentralized payment systems, we help them match the unique talent profile of the job to the best possible individual who can fill it.

Building strong teams requires not only combining the right skill sets but also putting together individuals who communicate well with each other. Along with identifying talent, we are also mindful of the need for a good fit between a job candidate and the company culture. In order to adapt well and contribute fully, a new employee needs to be able to share the company’s core values and behaviors, such as work and communication styles. Cultural fit is one of the most important factors in predicting employee retention; thus, getting to know our clients and their particular needs is a key part of our practice.
