Remote salaries increased across all markets; Go is the most in-demand skill; security engineers have highest average salaries 
NEW YORK, March 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Hired, an AI-driven marketplace matching tech and sales talent with top companies, today released its annual report, the 2022 State of Software Engineers. The report analyzes key software engineering trends around demand, salaries, skills, and preferences, and is based on Hired’s proprietary data from over 366,000 interactions between companies and software engineers.
Key findings include an increase in remote salaries for software engineers across all markets as companies have expanded their talent search worldwide. The data also showed Canada and the U.K. seeing high salary growth, with average salaries catching up to the U.S. to be more competitive.
On the city level, Hired data showed smaller regions also saw higher salary growth versus bigger tech hubs as talent moves to smaller, lower cost of living areas. The Austin market has seen the highest average salary increase: 9% for engineers from $139,000 in 2020 to $151,000 in 2021.
“Amid the ongoing tech talent shortage, the demand for software engineers on Hired has doubled, with candidates receiving more than twice the amount of interview requests than in 2020,” said Josh Brenner, CEO at Hired. “To win top engineering talent, companies have to offer increasingly competitive salaries, flexibility, and most importantly, extend their talent pipelines outside of traditional technology hubs to other regions globally. We’ve also seen a leveling of the playing field – companies of all sizes, and not just large or notable ones – now offer highly competitive salaries, especially as they compete for remote talent. For tech job seekers, learning relevant skills is more important than ever and we see specialized skill sets leading to higher demand and salaries.”
The report found enterprises (i.e. companies with 1,001+ employees) often face increased pressure to compete with startups (1-300 employees), which have seen an unprecedented level of funding and growth. Smaller companies are quickly catching up with compelling pay and benefits to attract and hire top talent – bringing pay from startups on par with enterprises with an average annual salary of $155,000 for software engineers in 2021.
Additional key findings from the report include:
