The job market is experiencing a shift, with a wave of layoffs across big tech companies forcing top talent to explore open roles at mid-sized organisations.

Big tech companies such as Twitter, Uber and Meta have paused hiring, as layoffs increase throughout the industry. This has provided an unexpected opportunity for mid-sized startups looking to recruit top tech talent who might have otherwise gone to larger companies. 

Many firms have had to re-strategise under the current investment climate. Market conditions have made many startups cheaper to invest in, and venture capitalists remain optimistic. This has led to massive opportunities for new founders and early startups. Amidst the economic uncertainty, the number of tech jobs – including web developers and software engineers – is expected to grow in the next decade. There are still tech companies of all sizes looking to fill roles, and those with open roles are very serious about hiring.

Reports on the declining tech market, a looming recession, and continuing layoffs in the technology sector have led tech workers to question whether their jobs are indeed recession-proof. However, despite signs of economic weakness in recent months, there is still demand for SaaS workers, which might be just the confidence boost tech professionals need.

At Ingenio, we are seeing Sales roles, especially those that are new business/acquisition orientated, hold up well in terms of demand, salary and competition. 

SaaS Companies Taking Advantage Of Big Tech Hiring Freeze

The tech jobs market has repeatedly outperformed in the face of both real and perceived economic weakness. The data confirms that for every layoff announcement, other employers are stepping in to take advantage of tech talent hiring opportunities.

The trend observed when we look at the hiring data in the SaaS market is that big tech layoffs could be an opportunity for SaaS companies to hire experienced IT talent.

With the Great Resignation having recently taken place, there are more employment opportunities in the tech industry than expected. 

Opportunities are still available for tech talent across many sectors. Here’s our list of top tech companies hiring in the current climate of redundancy and hiring freezes at bigger technology companies.
