New Delhi: Hiring in tech roles between April 2020 and January 2021 was consistently above pre-pandemic levels, peaking 17 per cent in November 2020.
A study of tech job postings on job site Indeed showed tech job postings in India were up 13 per cent in January 2021 from a year ago.
Hiring for tech roles was primarily driven by IT, IT enabled Services (ITeS), financial services, e-commerce, and consulting sectors.
Indeed.com Managing Director Sashi Kumar said with the pandemic necessitating ‘remote working’ and more technology-based business operations, organisations have had to ramp up their tech hiring to support this transition.
It is expected that digitisation and ‘virtual’ operations will continue to increase in the near future, creating a strong demand for tech-related jobs across sectors, Mr Kumar said.
The site revealed that top paying tech roles in India in 2020-2021 are software architect, technical lead, cloud engineer, senior software engineer and full stack developer.
The top fastest-rising tech jobs in India include application developer, IT security specialist, salesforce developer, site reliability engineer and cloud engineer, among others.
