Ever thought about working in blockchain?

OV Labs (Outlier Ventures tech team) is hosting a blockchain careers meetup on campus at UCL. For anyone considering a career in tech, learn about the single most innovative software sector: speak with industry leaders, find out who is hiring and learn key skills to get you there. You’ll also be able to network with people currently working in the space over beers and refreshments.

The agenda will include:

Careers in blockchain
Learn about blockchain roles in software, consulting and investment. Find out about the day-to-day of crypto careers, benefits, challenges, who is hiring and who they hire. Understand the interview process, learn where the industry is going and how you can influence it.

A panel with industry leaders
Led by Outlier Ventures CTO Aron van Ammers, listen to a discussion from the people driving the industry forward, talking about what it’s like to work in blockchain. Take the opportunity to ask questions and learn about the decentralised world, to assess whether it would be right for you.

10-minute workshops teaching blockchain skills
Led by professionals from software engineering and venture capital, learn how to use blockchain toolkits to build things in this new and exciting space, and learn how it compares to traditional software. Make a smart contract with Ethereum, and learn to E2E encrypt with Sovrin.

The workshops will be followed by networking over beers and refreshments where you can, introduce yourself and get the ball rolling on your own career.
