The Covid-19 pandemic has fast-tracked the adoption of technology across functions in India and technology professionals are more in demand than ever before, especially with expertise in newer areas like cryptocurrency, NFTs and blockchain, according to a report by global job portal Indeed.
Here’s what we know:
The data from the report shows that crypto roles appear to be one of the biggest shares of hires in overall technology job roles, increasing from 41.22% in 2019 – 2020 to 67.48% in 2021 -2022.
“Being a technology-first economy, Indian firms are rapidly investing in technologies that will put the country at the forefront of this new digital era. Technology hubs like Bengaluru and Hyderabad continue to lead with hiring in the sector while the national capital region is also seeing a fair share of interest in the sector,” said Sashi Kumar, Head of Sales for Indeed India, in a statement.
Although “blockchain promises to be an exciting new field of work and offers tremendous scope for application, the sector is still very nascent,” Kumar added.
Some of the most in-demand roles include those for application developers, data engineers,s and full-stack developers.
The Indeed report comes at a time when the Indian government is also pushing for mass adoption of new and upcoming technologies like blockchain, 5G, and AI.
