Demand for Tech Talent Remains High


Remote work and culture are important considerations for job seekers.

Despite industry layoffs, economic challenges, and reported hiring freezes, demand for tech talent remains high, according to a recent survey from Dice, “with more than 3.8 million tech jobs posted in 2022 so far.” And, many technology professionals are still looking to change jobs. 

More than half of respondents (52%) to Dice’s 2022 Tech Sentiment Report said they were likely to switch jobs in the next year (up from 44% last year).

Employer reputation and culture are among key considerations for job seekers, as “nearly 90 percent of tech professionals feel an employer’s brand is important when considering a new employer, and nearly 8 in 10 said they would not apply for a higher paying job at a company with a bad reputation,” the Dice report says.

Respondents ranked the following factors as important in terms of employer brand:

  • Culture (85%)
  • Corporate reputation (66%)
  • Product and purpose (62%)

The ability to work remotely is also important, Dice says, as 60 percent of respondents said “100% remote” was their most desired workplace setting compared to 53 percent in 2021.
