EkoLance Upskills Web2 Professionals to Work in Web3
With the rise of blockchain technology, many Web2 professionals are looking to upskill and pivot their careers toward this emerging field. We help these professionals transition into Web3 successfully by providing them with the necessary resources and equipping them with the right skills to start working in the blockchain industry. Here is what the process looks like:
We source Web2 talents from blockchain hubs, tech hubs, universities, and from over 35+ community partners we have in the African continent, Turkey and LATAM.
We accept the best professionals through an application process where we pick the best professionals with previous experience in Web2, either technical or non-technical.
We train the accepted professionals on either technical skills ( Solidity
Development or Smart Contract Auditing) or non-technical skills (Token Researching, Content Creation, Community Management, Web3 Marketing, and Sales). The skills each talent settles for depend on their interest and strength.
After the training, we provide work opportunities for these professionals. We achieve this through partnerships with blockchain companies. We connect them with internship opportunities, entry-level positions, or even senior-level roles based on their experience and skill level.
Ekolance’s Expansion to the Thriving Turkish Blockchain Market
We are excited to announce our expansion into the thriving Turkish blockchain market. We are prepared to make a massive impact in Turkey as a company focused on equipping professionals with the knowledge and skills required to meet the unique criteria of their preferred careers in the blockchain industry.
Turkey is home to several notable blockchain projects such as Yin Yang Games, The Unfettered, BiLira, and Abrakadabra Games, among others. With this expansion, EkoLance aims to bridge the gap between the growing demand for skilled blockchain professionals and the limited supply of such talents. Through our recruitment services, we seek to accelerate the growth of the blockchain industry in Turkey, while providing great opportunities for blockchain professionals in the country.
For blockchain professionals in Turkey, joining the EkoLance community also offers them a unique opportunity to be a part of a community that values diversity and innovation in the blockchain industry.
As we continue to break new ground in the blockchain industry, our expansion to Turkey represents an exciting new chapter of making a significant impact in the global blockchain market.
Currently, we have over 150+ community members in Turkey and we have successfully partnered with 2 companies: Lytera and Coding Squad. Our founder & CEO, Maria Eneva-Olms recently traveled to Turkey to meet more potential partners.
Ongoing Smart Contract Audit Training Program by EkoLance
EkoLance is committed to providing top-notch training programs for blockchain professionals, and our current ongoing program is the Smart Contract Audit Training. This program was launched for developers who want to become Smart Contract Auditors.
Smart contracts are self-executing contracts that run on blockchain technology. They are used to automate the execution of transactions and enforce the terms of a contract. As smart contracts become more prevalent, it is essential to have blockchain professionals who know how to audit and secure them properly.
We have over 50 participants in this cohort-based online program and we have 3 corporate partners who were given speaker sessions. They will be actively hiring after the training program of 10 weeks. During the summer, we will be launching an on-demand pre-recorded course for everyone who was not able to participate in the live training but will love to take the course.
