We are excited to announce the publication of the Q3 Dice Tech Job Report, your source for timely updates and insights on hiring in the technology industry.
As the country continues to grapple with the impact of COVID-19, the Q3 report tells a story of stabilization in technology hiring. While overall tech job postings were down 7 percent for the quarter (in comparison to Q2), postings were virtually flat from August to September. In a promising trend for the quarter overall, more than two-thirds of top employers increased job posting volumes. In addition, senior roles gained momentum in September, a possible indication that a larger number of mid-level postings will follow in the coming months.
Get the full report and all of the data.
The data shows that hiring trends continue to shift in favor of remote jobs, as well as a rise in postings for occupations related to cybersecurity, systems and architecture. In terms of tech unemployment, the industry remains at a rate of 3.5% – far below the national unemployment rate. Overall, the third quarter data suggests that many businesses are learning how to navigate and operate in an economy and landscape dictated by the virus.
While previous reports have focused on macro trends (year-over-year data), the Q3 Tech Job Report takes a more granular look at the tech industry by comparing Q3 and Q2 of 2020. The report includes:
- Updates on tech job activity by location at the state and city level, including new insights from our partner AppCast on the cities with the highest apply rates during the quarter.
- Top employers for tech hiring in cities across the U.S.
- Tech occupations and skills experiencing growth from August to September 2020.
You can download the new report here, and you also have access to past reports and other thought leadership content via our Employer Resource Library. We hope that you will find this information useful as you plan for the coming months and 2021.
