What do Blockchain Developers do?
Blockchain developers create and maintain the blockchain technology that underlies cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. They work on the code that allows for secure, transparent and tamper-proof transactions between parties. They may also be called upon to develop applications that use the blockchain technology. They must have a strong understanding of cryptography and distributed ledger technology, as well as familiarity with programming languages such as C++, Python, and Solidity. They should also be up to date on best practices regarding security measures such as encryption and authentication protocols. Blockchain developers play an important role in the development and maintenance of blockchain networks because they ensure that transactions are secure and that data is accurately stored on the blockchain. They are also responsible for developing smart contracts, which are self-executing computer programs that can facilitate transactions or other agreements between parties without requiring manual input from each party. As cryptocurrency and blockchain technology become more popular, the role of a blockchain developer will become increasingly important.
Top Characteristics of successful blockchain developers
- Thorough Understanding of Cryptography, Peer-to-Peer Networking and Consensus Algorithms: Blockchain developers must have a deep knowledge of cryptography, peer-to-peer networking and consensus algorithms in order to build effective distributed ledger applications.
- Solid Programming Skills: Developers need to be able to code in Solidity or another blockchain programming language in order to build decentralised applications.
- Attention to Detail: Blockchain developers must pay close attention to the details of their code and any possible security vulnerabilities. They should also be knowledgeable about design patterns and domain-specific languages.
- Understanding of Network Security: Blockchain developers must have a thorough understanding of network security and best practices to ensure the safety and integrity of their applications.
- Excellent Problem Solving Skills: Blockchain developers must be able to think on their feet and come up with creative solutions to complex problems in a timely manner.

Finding the right people is one of, if not the most key component to an organization's success. At alphacoders it's not about quantity, but about quality. Every candidate that is introduced is always worth talking to and we have already found a lot of great colleagues through alphacoders. The short weekly exchange ensure that your ideas are understood and that you are always up to date.
With alphacoders we have found a strong partner for our tech recruiting. The feedback loops were short and efficient. Our company, our tech vision and our requirement profile were quickly understood and implemented. The management of the interview process went fabulous for us as well as for the candidates.
Working with alphacoders was our first experience with a recruiter. We particularly liked the transparent communication and the summary of the search in the form of reports and figures. This helped us to better understand the candidate market and gain deeper insights into recruitment from IT specialists. We can recommend alphacoders 100%.
Last year we worked with alphacoders for the first time. The cooperation was characterised by professional and very personal support, as well as profound contacts within our target group. What was special for us was that we were actually only looking for one PHP developer, but because of the but due to the suitable selection of candidates we directly hired 2 developers and that within only 3 months. We would recommend alphacoders at any time.
Professional and goal-oriented, I would work with alphacoders again at any time. I've recommended them both internally to other departments and to external stakeholders.
Together with alphacoders, we were looking for and hired a PL/SQL developer. Thanks to the professional support of alphacoders, we were able to fill the position in a very short time. The fact that we worked very closely with the tech recruiters and that we had the same understanding of the market and the special requirements played a major role in our success. We would recommend alphacoders at any time.

Together with alphacoders, we were looking for and hired a NAV developer. The special thing about this was the complexity of the market situation: it is a very special position with a very narrow pool of candidates and a very loyal target group. We solved it through trusting and effective communication and adjustments to the profile. One key was certainly that we opened up for a fully remote position and were thus able to find and successfully recruit the right candidate.
When looking for qualified employees, we like to rely on specialists. They know the market and the target group and can advise accordingly.
