Technology job roles increased by an overall 8% between February 2014 and February 2019. The last year alone (February 2018 to February 2019) saw tech job roles grow by 31%, while job searches for these roles during the same period increased by 8%. Indeed’s data also reveals that 30% of jobs requiring tech skills in India are currently ‘hard to fill’. This difference in the rate at which demand for tech talent is growing and the rate at which skilled tech talent is being made available is a possible factor contributing to jobs being ‘hard to fill’.
