Hyre: Tech Sector In The Age Of The New Normal

Hyre Founders - Jay & Joe
Hyre Founders Sector Report

Technology has become an integral part of our day to day lives, especially in the past few months. We have experienced a lot of unexpected things and fortunately, Engineers have kept our economy moving forward as most companies transitioned online and their staff to work from home. According to The New Daily, even when the pandemic is over, almost half of the workforce will continue working remotely because they felt happier and more productive. This is mainly because people are saving lots of time by not commuting and can approach their work at their own pace with a clear state of mind.

As we see this trend continue, an increase in demand for technology resources will inevitably follow. The infrastructure to support our digital world needs software engineers to keep us all online!

E-commerce, home entertainment, pharmaceuticals/MedTech, are experiencing positive growth with much of that focused around their online presence, in turn, creating demand for engineers of all flavours. These business sectors may not completely escape potentially negative economic impacts of the pandemic but they are in a far better position than many industries. In fact, they are confident that this is a temporary slow down and will eventually become one of the handfuls of industries that will potentially stand to gain from it.

In addition, Australia is providing support and government funding to businesses. Many entrepreneurs in our sector have a unique opportunity to grow as part of a national effort to stimulate the overall economy. From this, we are and will continue to see an emerging group of innovative startups creating disruptive products in certain industry sectors and automation focused products to create increased efficiency for companies who may be moving to more of an online environment.

Great insights, we've noticed a big increase in e-commerce through our business. Plenty of our clients are looking for engineers and developers, I'm hopeful for the future in Australia.
