Introducing the First Report on the State of Tech Hiring Around the World

Written By Aditi Chandrasekar | June 7, 2021

HackerRank's 2021 Innovator Report details the state of tech hiring around the world

The pandemic forced many companies to quickly pivot their business strategies. From QR codes at restaurants, touchless checkout at grocery stores, to beefed-up eCommerce experiences, all of these anticipated innovations happened all at once—at a single inflection point. 

The fact is, every company is now prioritizing one thing: Innovation. 

This makes it an incredibly hot market for hiring top developers. Every company—regardless of industry—is now a competitor in the war for tech talent… and a sophisticated hiring process will be your secret sauce in hiring the best talent out there.

In an effort to better understand the tech hiring landscape, we asked over 1,000 companies across over 50 countries about their tech hiring maturity and shared the results in our first-ever 2021 HackerRank Innovator Report.

In this report, you will learn:

  • Does company size give you a leg up in your hiring maturity?
  • What it takes to be a Hiring Innovator
  • The prevalence of unconscious bias in hiring tech
  • How engineering and HR teams differ in the views of their hiring maturity
