Bangalore, India, November 22, 2021 — HackerEarth, a leading solutions provider to source, assess, upskill and engage software developer talent, today released its annual State of Developer Recruitment report. The report outlines the changing priorities for hiring professionals in the tech industry and the challenges associated with recruiting qualified candidates amid the Great Resignation and ongoing war for talent.

The 2021 State of Developer Recruitment Report is based on survey data from around 2,500 engineering managers and HR professionals from 79 countries; across industries including technology, pharmaceutical, retail, automobile, construction, banking, media, finance, and insurance. The report aims to outline the best practices for hiring professionals and developer candidates and determine what the post-pandemic hiring landscape looks like.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a record-breaking 2.9% of the workforce quit their jobs in August 2021 to seek better opportunities. Many are demanding increased flexibility in their employment search—from remote and hybrid options to more work-life balance—as companies are desperate to fill roles. HackerEarth’s report suggests that 2022 will remain a candidate’s market and that the tech industry must continue to change how it assesses candidates.

Additionally, while 2021 put a spotlight on DE&I in hiring and the workplace, HackerEarth’s report found that recruiters are slightly split between wanting to hire diverse candidates and filling roles quickly based on supply and demand. An overwhelming number of engineering managers care more about shipping code than building diverse teams.

“Last year, many companies put a pause on hiring, but that has completely changed and many hiring managers report that they are looking to fill up to 100 roles in what’s already a highly competitive market. Employers seeking to hire top developer talent will be challenged to keep their recruiting practices current or risk compromising key priorities,” said Sachin Gupta, CEO of HackerEarth. “Much of what happens in 2022 will shape the post-pandemic workforce. Engineering managers should be focused on updating outdated practices to eliminate hiring silos and increase candidate engagement.”
