Mid year recruitment update: Product Management

Product management recruitment has always been associated with a rigorous and comprehensive evaluation process, due to the importance of the function, where it serves as a bridge across multiple internal functional areas.

Mid year recruitment update: Marketing, Business Development & Sales

Demand for sales and marketing talent has remained consistent throughout the first half of the year, as companies continue to see the value in investing in their go-to-market teams from an early stage. SaaS, AI, crypto, health-tech and wellness and ed-tech are some of the industries that have shown the biggest surge in hiring.

Mid year recruitment update: Finance, Business Operations & Human Resources

Recruitment activity has been high overall, particularly for accounting roles. However, there remains a notable shortage of candidates with public accounting backgrounds and between 2-6 years of accounting industry experience, so companies are having a harder time filling roles at this level.

Mid year recruitment update: Engineering

While the overall job market in the Bay Area is hot, the demand for talented software engineers is at boiling point. There’s not a tech company in the Bay Area that is not looking for experienced frontend, full stack, backend or strong mobile engineers. Health-tech, Machine Learning, Fin-Tech and Marketplaces are the sectors that have shown the biggest increases in demand as companies look to tackle real world problems with software.
