Tech roles still top the list according to LinkedIn

A positive outlook for the tech industry in 2023

Tech roles are still in high demand. This is according to LinkedIn’s 2023 Jobs on the Rise list. The list highlights the 25 fastest-growing job titles over the past five years and the trends defining the future world of work. Machine Learning Engineers, Cloud Engineers, and other tech roles remain highly sought after.

With the rise of job cuts, this begs the question of whether the outlook is bleak for tech workers or does this list show that there are new opportunities for those with technical skills.

Tech learning platform O’Reilly looked at how to fill the demand and where the workforce is headed in 2023.

Laura Baldwin, President at O’Reilly, commented: “So much of the conversation over the last six months has been focussed on economic uncertainty and layoffs in the tech sector, and yet the recent Jobs on the Rise list from LinkedIn shows that there are many strong, in-demand tech and engineering roles. It’s refreshing to see the acknowledgement that the sky is not falling for tech workers. Every business is becoming a tech business in a sense, and the demand for skilled tech workers will continue to grow over the coming decade.

 “Business leaders need to be less focussed on the noise in the short-term and plan to set themselves up for long-term success. With the World Economic Forum and Korn Ferry both predicting significant shortages of skilled tech workers over the course of the next decade, leaders need to be focused on how they’ll be re-skilling or upskilling their teams to ensure they have the technology skills needed to keep their businesses competitive.”
