There is no “blockchain industry”. And yours & my companies are the best places to start


Go build yourself an extremely lightweight Ethereum proof of concept on a topic you have some knowledge of. Once presentable, find a few partners and show it off. You'll land a project soon enough.


Kind of a broad statement...what exactly are you looking to do in the blockchain space?


Network and show managers that you have the skills to be on a Blockchain project. Also, join the groups available to join learning paths available


Build prototypes on Hyperledger Fabric in addition to Ethereum... HLF has the highest penetration in the enterprise space at present


@ibm: what’s your favourite successfully rolled out project on fabric?


Try for bites instead?


Definitely build some prototypes. That has always helped me in my career. And a prototype doesn’t even have to be a full fledge working product. A little code is always helpful but don’t be afraid to use wireframes. Also, showing the bigger picture, ie, the current state, challenges, solutions, etc will only help.

Microsoft just released an SDK for Blockchain development. Not sure what your dev background is but if you have any knowledge of C# I highly recommend going that route. Microsoft + Azure + their SDKs and GitHub code examples are extremely beneficial.




Development is what I'm waiting to do.

You could contribute to open source cryptocurrency projects, if you don’t mind moonlighting and probably breaking your employment agreement. It probably wouldn’t be something you could talk about at work or use to land projects at Accenture though.

Depending on your skill set and goals I can probably hook you up with a project or steer you in the right direction.

Hi Googlers, I wanted to request for some genuine advice.
I hope to work at Google within the next 3 years. My question is for PM/PgM roles what type of background has historically been more successful in the role itself (I don’t mean only from a recruitment perspective) - coming from MBB with digital transformation & previous B4 consulting experience OR coming from an industry role w/ analytics focused product/project management & previous B4 experience. DMs welcome!

Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?
