How To Get A Job In WEB3 As A Non-Dev?

Web3 Non Dev Jobs.png


Not A Techie?

Still, want to work and build in Web3?

Not a problem! Although Developers are high in demand, WEB3 is full of opportunities for everyone. It doesn't discriminate and knows no boundaries. If you have a skill that solves a problem, you are a perfect fit because WEB3 has so many problems to solve. We are still early and the ecosystem is growing exponentially every year. So far in 2022, more than $4 Billion has been poured into WEB3 Startups. This is probably the best time to start building in WEB3.

Story Time

I am pretty active on Crypto Twitter. Recently a recruiter from a Web3 media firm (from Dubai) approached me via DM and asked if I am willing to write Twitter Threads for them on a part-time basis. Topics would be Crypto, DeFi & NFTs! At first, I thought it was a scam and wondered why they chose me. I have published like 3 or maybe 4 Twitter threads in my entire life. I am in no way an expert in crypto or in writing. Don't have a huge following either to prove that my Tweets perform well. 😂 But in the end everything checked out.

She saw my comment done under a tweet by a well-known crypto influencer in India. It got a bit of activity in terms of likes and replies. The first thing she looked at in my profile was THE PINNED TWEET xD It was a thread calling out crypto content writers and explaining to them why Leo Finance is the best place to write and earn crypto.

I got my first assignment, it was about NFT Yield Farming and Lending. Delivered it in 24 hours. Got paid in crypto!

  • No interviews
  • No paperwork
  • No bullshit

The firm doesn't even know my real name. In Web3, your work is your resume. Recruiters are constantly looking for talent all around. You just need to pick a skill, master it and start getting active in the WEB3 space. Creating content around your niche on social media is the biggest way to attract those recruiters to you. They will throw work and money in exchange for your time and skill. I got the job simply because of my knowledge of crypto & ability to write Twitter threads.

Why To Work In Web3?

There are a few good reasons why you should consider working in a Web3 setup as opposed to Web2:

  • Fastest growing space
  • Remote work
  • More opportunities, fewer builders
  • Flexibility & Freedom
  • Learn as you move up the ladder
  • Higher compensation as compared to Web2
  • Get paid in crypto
  • Global setup
  • Work as an anon
  • We are still relatively early

Web3 Opportunities For A Non-Dev

Most of the crypto startups & web3 projects are looking for driven folks from all kinds of industries. They need more talent than any other space out there. Folks are leaving their high-paying jobs at the biggest of firms to build on Web3. You can go for the following non-dev roles that are high in demand currently:

  • UI/UX Designer
  • Video Editor
  • Graphic Designer
  • Digital Artist
  • Tech/Non-Tech Writer
  • Product Manager
  • Project Manager
  • Community Manager
  • Data Analyst
  • Business Developer

Don't limit yourself to this list. You can even create a new job title for yourself. 🔥 If someone finds it a fit for their business, they might get you on board.

How To Land A Job As A Non-Dev?

You are set with your work portfolio and chose the kind of work you are looking for. The million-dollar question is - Where to look? I have compiled a list of resources that you can use to find a good job depending upon your skills, thank me later:

  1. Twitter: The most underrated place to find jobs. Social media is a great reach out to clients and recruiters who are looking for talent. You just need to be actively looking out for them. If you see a problem that needs solving, solve it or at least offer a viable solution. Follow and engage with the startup or project you want to work with. They might notice your relentlessness. 😂 Twitter account for Web3 Jobs: https://twitter.com/CryptoJobsList. Not just Twitter, you can try LinkedIn & Facebook too.
  2. Job Boards: A lot of Web3 communities and influencers are running their Job Boards and they keep updating them with fresh jobs. List of top Job Boards: https://twitter.com/FusePass/status/1527866676598947846
  3. Freelance Websites: Laborx is a website for freelancers where you can get paid in crypto. It's new so very few job listings are there but hopefully, it will grow with time. There are several Web2 freelance websites where you can get the chance to work with web3 startups as well. Upwork and Fiverr are the most famous ones.
  4. Discord: That's where most crypto communities operate from. Get active in your favorite Web3 projects and start adding value using your skills. These communities are looking for managers & mods to help them run the server. You can also pitch in to fill the gaps you think need filling.
  5. Web3 Social Media: If you want to learn and work in Web3 without having a client then you can become a content creator. Web3 social media monetized your activity and you can also find people who are looking for someone like you. Just like Twitter.

It's a wrap. Now get yo ass moving and get working. xD Would you like to work in Web3 or have any plans to do it? Comment below!

Good stuff mate. I like the flexibility it gives you and getting paid in stable coin makes it much easier to invest part of your earnings.

The bear market has actually adversely affected the employing capacity of companies but overall, it is still much better to work in the web 3 side

Yeah, I've been trying to think of ways to improve my crypto income during the bear cycle and this is a good idea.

Writing, marketing, operations, etc. Good crypto projects are doing more than bringing on Devs. The competition during the bear season is going to be brutal. Building is really important, but so is visibility and market awareness.

Yes, @whatsup. Absolutely, there are different people with different skill sets involved in running any business. Web3 startups are no different. In fact web3 will create jobs that don't even exist right now.

Btw, are you doing crypto full-time? All the best, you are already doing a great job as an official LeoFinance Curator & an unofficial community builder. :)) I hope it pays off after 5 years when Leo hits $10 or something. 🤘

I'm not full time crypto, my financial life is cut in two.

I have a fiat life and a crypto life right now and they don't mix much.

I used to be able to add quite a bit of crypto using fiat, but real world issues have reduced what I can spend on that side, so I'm trying to increase my crypto efforts during the bear markets when it really matters.

You and I are pretty much in a similar situation. Good thing is that I have enough time which I can trade to do more work and acquire new skills. Let's make the best use of it. Don't want to die poor. 😿

I know it my heart that Crypto can change my life for good and I hope it does same to you and every hustler out there.

This is an awesome list, but I suspect just the tip of the iceberg. My book Cryptosocial: How Cryptocurrencies Are Changing Social Media discusses the content creation opportunity on cryptosocial platforms like Leo Finance. I'm going to check out some of these other resources you mentioned.

Thanks for mentioning it, will check it out.

Seriously, it's for anyone who care about the future of social media or is interested in crypto but doesn't know about cryptosocial media. I think there are a lot of people who could benefit from reading it.

Whatever work I do in crypto and Web3 will be new for me, but I see Web3 as a space rich in opportuities for anyone looking to start over. I can learn to be a developer, but I'm not there. So think I can earn much sooner as a writer doing either content creation or as a copywriter as I acquire the skills along the way. Tokenized blogging at LeoFinance is helping me with that.

If I want to do everything exclusively in Web3 (even the social media), where do I go? What do I do? What strategies should I employ?

That's true Magna. We all have different roles to play. Just need to choose the domain and area we would like to work in and go ahead with all hands on the deck.

Content creation is the best and easiest way to get started in WEB3. Once you have a decent portfolio of blogs and an audience, then you can start freelancing and write for others. Leo Finance is a great place to introduce yourselves to such juicy opportunities. That's where everyone should be if the want to make it in WEB3.

I'm doing more content marketing-oriented posts at LeoFinance now, along with proof of concept posts featuring the intersection of any topic with either cryptocurrency or finance. Engagement-oriented posts are part of the mix, too.
