The world is eagerly waiting to see how economies and industries respond to the expected recession in 2023. Even the generally robust tech industry has suffered significant losses lately thanks to layoffs at Stripe, Meta and Twitter. The good news, however, is that new research shows that globally the sector is expected to grow by 6%, with cloud computing showing particular strength.
This means that for those working in tech, they can continue to enjoy higher salaries, creative and impactful non-monetary benefits – and depending on your experience and skills, a possible pay raise as well.
Overall wage increase
Hired’s annual Technology and Sales Recruitment Market Report shows global salary increases in almost all technology roles. The report, 2022 State of Tech Salaries: Navigating an Uncertain Hiring Market, is the most comprehensive deep-dive into the state of the tech sector since before the pandemic.
It shows that while growth is to be expected across the tech sector, certain specializations and functions can expect to enjoy a fruitful 24 months. Those working in cloud computing have seen the demand for their skills jump as Covid accelerates demand, changing not only how and when we work, but also how companies are required to do business if they want to not only survive but prosper. In fact, public cloud spending is expected to more than double by 2025, with only a fraction of non-critical workloads on the cloud today.
In terms of paydays, the highest salaries in technology are reserved for those with experience in software engineering, followed closely by DevOps, design and data analysis. Engineering management topped the highest paying position in 2022. However, the best news is reserved for those starting their careers in technology or middle management, as these sectors have the most jumped in terms of salary, according to Hiring Report.
For those without direct tech experience but looking to cash in on the industry’s popularity, the report also shows that demand for digital communications experts grew by 8.5%, startups and unicorns seeking to establish themselves as serious players within the sector.
As such, marketers, communications, or public relations professionals looking to future-proof their careers would do well to look into tech companies that are hiring right now. It’s also worth noting that since the way and when we shop has changed, e-commerce has proven to be the dark horse of the tech world and offers some of the highest salaries.
So what can you do if these trends don’t match your personal experience? Moving jobs: it’s as simple as that. If your current employer can’t or won’t match your salary, know that with the right skills, there are plenty of opportunities in the tech industry.
