2. Welcome to this month’s Partner Profile. Could you introduce yourself with a brief bio?
Hello! My name is Alexa Lebowitz and I manage the Partnerships Team at Hired. I joined the Business Development Team at Hired (formerly Vettery) about five years ago and later moved over to build out our Partnerships functions.
Today we partner with a wide range of organizations, with a focus on amplifying Hired’s values and giving companies and jobseekers a head start towards growth.
3. As an integrated partner of Workable, Hired helps to efficiently fill tech and sales roles across a wide array of industries. Could you elaborate on how Hired specifically does so?
We deliver a curated pool of responsive candidates directly to you, so you can spend less time sourcing and more time interviewing and hiring. Our platform gives you insight into candidates’ professional backgrounds, work preferences, and compensation, so you have the information you need to make better decisions, adjust your offers in real time if needed, and hire the best fit for your team.
As for how we partner with Workable, our main goal in integrating Hired to your Workable account is to simplify your interview process tracking and keep your current workflows. Once integrated, easily pull in any open jobs directly from your Workable account. Then once you reach out to candidates and they respond, we automatically push their profile to the right job req in your account.
This saves you loads of time versus uploading individual profiles. If you are a Hired user and haven’t linked your Hired and Workable systems yet, here’s how to get set up in just a few minutes!
4. What are some general trends you all are noticing in the hiring process?
Earlier this year we released our fifth annual State of Software Engineers, a global report of employment trends for software engineers covering remote work, salaries, and DEI. We compiled and analyzed data from our platform looking at both the full year (2022) as well as comparing averages before and after the majority of layoffs began.
To provide additional insights, we also surveyed engineering talent and employers and included graphics for companies to better understand what we’re seeing. There are so many great insights in the report worth noting but I’ll keep it brief for now and share the two that most stood out to me:
First, one big trend is local salaries have had more volatility compared to remote salaries which have been relatively flat since macroeconomic conditions worsened. Remote roles command higher salaries than local roles, especially in smaller markets.
There’s a growing disconnect between talent and employers around remote. Despite larger companies demanding a greater push for in-office employees, we continue to see the proportion of jobseekers only seeking remote roles (vs. in person or hybrid) grow.
Remote salaries remain compelling – especially for smaller tech hubs where the gap to local salaries is wider and, in the US especially, remote offers are changing compensation dynamics, especially for lower cost of living markets.
Secondly, perhaps most surprising to some, is the shift in the most in-demand coding skills and software engineering roles this year. We look at a combination of the most specialized skills and those with the highest demand from employers to determine the “hottest skills.”
Ruby and Ruby on Rails took the top spots this year in terms of hottest skills vs Go last year. With that said, Scala, Go, and React Native were close behind. NLP and Blockchain engineers had the highest salaries, unseating Security and Search engineers.
