13 Booming Tech Companies Hiring Right Now
Companies on the up, with no signs of slowing down!
2022, what a year it was. The tech industry was in full bloom and quick expansion to meet the needs of users who were becoming totally dependent on technology during and after COVID-19.
However, after most booms then comes a bust. In this case, the last quarter of 2022 led to having to confront revenue loss and massive layoffs. To add some numbers to what we’re saying, according to Layoffs.fyi (an online tracker that keeps tabs on job losses in the tech sector) 152,542 employees from 993 global tech companies were laid off in 2022. Ouch.
While it might feel like all hope is lost, Xena is here to remind you that it’s not the case. Actually, we have some good news for you – especially if you’re a woman in tech.
So, what can we predict for 2023?
While some industries are facing record-breaking hardship, others are growing faster than ever! We must be aware that a wave of uncertainty is heading everyone’s way but a consistent lifesaver will be the need for diversity– it is so strong that nothing will wash it away.
Not only do companies have a corporate social responsibility, but internal initiatives are often in place to ensure more women, ethnic minorities and underrepresented people have a place secured in the workforce.
At Xena, we are proud to be partnering with businesses that are committed to their D&I goals and to the progression of women in tech.
