At Employbl we've collected publicly accessible web data on over ten thousand tech companies and startups primarily based throughought the United States. We collect data about where the company headquarters is, how much money they've raised from Venture Capitalists, Angels or Private Equity firms. We track what investors have invested in the companies and in what fundraising round (Seed, Series A, Series B etc). We store when the company was founded and even who the founder is. One thing we're building out currently is pulling in job listings. What are these companies hiring for? In this post we'll share the most popular job listings in the United States tech industry and a bit more informations about the companies themselves that are doing the hiring.

We've pulled in over 40,000 active job listings to date. Most of these job listings are pulled from a popular Applicant Tracking System (ATS) called Greenhouse that provides a publicly accessible API endpoint to fetch jobs. This means the jobs are active according to the company's own system. As we develop the product and our job listings functionality more for job seekers we'll start to pull in data from other sources but for now it's plenty of data and I think we can already gain some insights.

Without further ado here are the most in demand job titles in the tech industry right now..

🔎 About these jobs

Sales Development Representative (SDR) and Enterprise Account Executive (AE) are both sales positions responsible for bringing in new business. Customer Success Managers (CSM) are responsible for making sure existing customers are happy, using the software and will continue paying their bills. Product Managers (PM) guide the engineering team, prioritize things and think up what to build (I think. No one really knows what PMs do tbh... jk jk). Product Designers sketch wireframes and mockups of what the engineers should build, collect customer feedback and think of user flows. DevOps engineers are responsible for making sure the system keeps running "in the cloud" and can scale to handle all of the usage. Software Engineers (SWE) write code that runs on servers to make the software product a reality. Recruiters and Sourcers are responsible for finding candidates and making sure people get hired. There are a lot of job titles here and lots of opportunity. I hope you find this helpful as a snapshot of what companies in the tech industry are hiring for right now.
