It’s a busy time in the employment market, especially within the tech industry: A recent KPMG poll discovered that 80% of businesses surveyed said they needed more staff with digital skills.
Another 66% of companies are having trouble finding and hiring talent and with Meta’s recent announcement that it plans to hire up to 2,500 employees for remote and in-office positions across Canada for its new engineering hub based in Toronto, it’s a good time to be looking for a new role in the sector.
Demand is high for talented workers with key digital skills – if that’s you, have a look at three companies hiring below, and there are plenty more open roles on our Job Board.
