Celebrating Women In Blockchain

DanielMarch 8, 2018

Today is International Women’s Day and we at Komodo would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for all of the strong, inspiring women in our lives. We’d also like to take this chance to encourage women to apply for the positions we’re currently trying to fill here at Komodo Platform!

While we already have several amazing women in our ranks, we would love to have more women join our team. Before we tell you more about the open positions, we’d like to introduce two Komodo core team members and recognize them for all of their hard work. Here are 2 women in blockchain at Komodo Platform:

Meet Alice

Alice is Komodo’s Senior Events Manager. Based in Europe, she has been involved with cryptocurrencies and blockchain tech since 2012. She was the very first female core team member at Komodo and has been working with us for over a year now.

In that time, Alice has accomplished huge things! She represented Komodo at several important events, including the Munich Blockshow in April 2017 and the Money 2020 Conference in June. In addition, she personally organized the “Banking Meets Blockchain” event, which was held in Zurich in September. The event was an enormous success.

Conventional wisdom holds that it can be difficult for women to become a part of the tech and blockchain industries. Alice says that this narrative doesn’t reflect her personal experiences:

“I always thought it was a male-dominated industry but after visiting different events and meeting a lot of female crypto-enthusiasts and entrepreneurs, I was overwhelmed by the female presence and I also became part of it. Compared to the ‘non-crypto-world,’ I think women are preferred in crypto.” — Alice

Meet Angelina

The second team member we’d like to introduce is Angelina, who is Komodo’s new Project Manager. She’s based in Russia and, although she is just 26 years old, she has several years of experience working in the IT industry, including with clients like Procter & Gamble and The Coca-Cola Company. Angelina began working in the cryptocurrency world in August 2017 and then joined the Komodo team at the beginning of this year.

When asked about her experiences as one of the women in blockchain industry, Angelina said she has had a very pleasant experience overall and felt that women were empowered in the industry’s decentralized work environment:

“I know a lot of very smart women who are delivering results and it’s incredibly refreshing when women are being judged by their results and only that. … I really wish that there were more women in the blockchain industry. It’s an incredible place to grow, an incredible place to establish yourself as a professional.” — Angelina
