LinkedIn has recently released a 2019 list of ‘the companies which people most desire to work for’. Naturally, this list is comprised of many household names. A promising entry resides at #35 out of 50 – Coinbase.
Those that follow the world of crypto/blockchain will surely recognize the name. This ranking was obtained, as those behind LinkedIn analyzed a years’ worth of data obtained through its platform. Broken down simply, they evaluated 4 main areas to determine a company’s desirability.
- Interest in the Company
- Engagement with Company Employees
- Job Demand
- Employee Retention
In residing at #35, Coinbase sits directly above Twitter, and Intel on the list.
Others comprising the List
While Coinbase is the only blockchain affiliated company to have made the ranking this year, it is important to note the lofty status the others on the list maintain. Here are a few of the other companies which made the list – you made have heard of them before.
Arguably the most well-known name in all of crypto/blockchain, Coinbase has become an industry giant. They are often the public’s first interaction with the world of crypto, with their growth reflecting this.
Under the watch of CEO, Brian Armstrong, Coinbase has developed and released a variety of services tailored towards establishing industry wide fundamentals. This development ranges from services such as custodial solutions, to basic and advanced trading platforms.
Whether they are loved or not, Coinbase has grown to assume the role of a predominant influencer within the industry. As a result of their efforts, the Seattle based company is now valued at over $8 billion.
While Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and the plethora of social media outlets have become wildly popular for connecting with others, there is one popular offering that has found a niche – LinkedIn. Pulling up a Facebook feed will greet you with non-stop memes, comical videos, and pointless day-to-day on goings of family and friends. LinkedIn, on the other hand, markets themselves towards the business professional. It is a platform that is relatively free of memes and similar content. It is a platform that facilitates the dissemination of industry specific news, among likeminded individuals, all the while allowing for those individuals to connect.
By capitalizing on this niche area, LinkedIn has grown to accumulate over 600 million users.
