The top 3 jobs were Full stack (backend + frontend) developer, DevOps (systems admin + shell scripting developer), and Backend Developer.
According to Paul D’Arcy, senior vice-president of Indeed, in a statement:
Canada is a “booming hub for tech innovation”.
“The first thing that surprised us was how dominant tech-related roles were. We expected it to be a more diverse list that better represented the diversity of the Canadian economy, but it turns out that there’s been a lot of growth in the tech sector in Canada.”
Because there is such a big demand, there are not enough qualified applicants to fill the roles. Companies keep the jobs open for a lot longer because they can not find the right talent.
The growth is here to stay. Canada tech industry is almost a $120b dollar industry, 7% of Canadian GDP.
