The surprising increase of the number of job postings

Wait, really?

According to the data we’ve collected, the number of job openings increased by 40% in Q1 2023 compared to the previous quarter, reaching a total of 32,876. That’s quite a significant increase, isn’t it?

You might be wondering how this is possible, especially considering the prevailing economic crisis, recession, and widespread layoffs that affected numerous tech workers.

Let us explain what really happened here:

Michał Gąszczyk


Unfortunately, for the first time in the history of the report, we have come across a case of significant market manipulation.

According to the collected data, this number has increased by 40% quarter to quarter, a doubtful figure, given that the market has been clearly slowing down for some time now, with software houses reducing their headcount and more candidates competing to be employed by suppliers of technologies. 

We have decided to demonstrate this increase in our report, as we wanted it to be consistent with the methodology employed since its first edition. 

For a few years, we have been calculating this figure on the basis of the absolute number of all published jobs. For a job posting to be recognized as a single recruitment process, it must be unique in terms of: the recruiting company, the title of the job, and the location. So, if a given company is hiring in two cities for the same post, our report would identify these job postings as separate recruitment processes.

Fierce competition for the attention and money of the clients of job boards has resulted in a situation where job postings advertising remote work are multiplied as their on-site alternatives available in a few cities. This, in turn, has inflated the number of analyzed jobs.

Now comes the question: “If not 40%, then how much, really?”

It’s hard to tell but we estimate that the number of jobs in Q1 2023 was similar to that in the last quarter of 2022 (23,475 jobs).
