April 2023 Hacker News Hiring Trends
The main theme from April's Ask HN: Who is hiring? thread is that the downward trend on postings continues. April had 384 job postings, down almost 13% from March. This is the lowest total since December of 2015. Year over year, April 2023 is down 51% from April 2022.
The back to the office trend is also picking up, though still slowly, and far from pre-COVID levels. Remote jobs dropped another 2.5% in April, down to 61.7% of all job postings. Meanwhile, Onsite jobs rose from 16.6% to 18.8%.
Python, TypeScript, and Go are again 1,2,3 in the programming language rankings.
AI is arguably the hottest trend in tech, garerning a large amount of Software Developers' attention. This trend is evident in the Hacker News job postings as well. Machine Learning is up over 15% of postings and is the tenth most popular term overall while AI jumps from 2th to 14th ranking of total mentions over the past year.
