Hired’s 2023 State of Software Engineers report  ↦

Hired CEO, Josh Brenner:

We create this report every year to help talent professionals and software engineers understand the hiring climate, as well as what’s top of mind for employers and engineers.

Here’s some of their key findings:

  1. Attracted to the field by new challenges and continuous learning, software engineers remain optimistic about the future.
  2. Layoffs (from May to December 2022) had the greatest impact on salaries and interview interest for junior and non-traditional engineers.
  3. Despite high-profile calls for return-to-office (RTO), demand for remote engineering talent remains high. Remote roles command higher salaries than local roles, especially in smaller markets.
  4. The most in-demand coding skills and software engineering roles shifted this year.

There’s a lot to digest here. Worth a read, especially if you’re on the market.
