Deloitte Suddenly Placed a Bunch of Crypto Job Ads?

Deloitte "if you just follow, you'll never lead" sheep billboard

Blockworks has written about activity on LinkedIn and Google Jobs suggesting “that Deloitte is on the prowl for crypto natives to join its ranks.”

A LinkedIn search shows 331 crypto-y roles at Deloitte, almost all of them posted last week. Blockworks’ job hunter says the other Big 4 — you know who they are — show zero. How can that be, with EY’s affection for blockchain? (It’s not. EY has a couple blockchain gigs posted on Google Jobs in the last week)

Deloitte’s crypto titles include:

  • Blockchain & Digital Assets Manager (97 US locations)
  • Tax Manager, Blockchain & Cryptocurrency (18 US locations)
  • Tax Manager, Blockchain & Cryptocurrency in NFTs (three US locations)

Why is Deloitte jumping on this train now? And why so many roles?

Doing a quick check on Google Jobs, it doesn’t seem that Deloitte is looking for 97 different blockchain managers (GL with that) but rather putting the same job posting in multiple locales.

Easily finding the one near me, the job description explains their motive nicely (from the Blockchain & Digital Assets Manager position in Falls Church, VA):

We are expanding Deloitte’s Audit & Assurance Blockchain & Digital Assets practice. We are seeking professionals who want to build off their existing audit knowledge or accounting experience and use such knowledge on exciting audit and advisory projects that add great value to our clients within their finance, accounting, and operation departments. From digital asset technical accounting issues to new standard implementations; from complex transaction support to internal controls specific to blockchain and digital assets, the leaders of our practice will help you expand your experience base to further develop your career. At Deloitte, we provide services using an approach designed to provide the flexibility to serve the unique circumstances and complexities of our clients. You’ll gain exposure to a variety of industries, business models and financial accounting areas, helping your career growth and professional development.

A few more we found:

  • Blockchain & Digital Assets Senior Manager (McLean)
  • Blockchain & Digital Assets Senior (Arlington)

No associate blockchain jobs. Sorry, associates.

Does Deloitte suddenly have 331 crypto openings? Doubt. But we did find out they’re expanding the blockchain practice!
