What tech hiring or job seeking trends
do you expect to see in 2023?

Cory Steiniger Headshot

The Dallas companies that fully embrace the hybrid office model in 2023 will be the ones that thrive. Many of the candidates we work with are looking for the flexibility of working from home the majority of the time but would like an office available to them for major projects or whiteboarding sessions. Businesses that listen to employees and create an environment that suits their needs will be the ones that get top talent.

Cory Steiniger

Managing Director


"In 2023, job seekers will be forced to improve their business IQ to find the right role to grow their career. While it's still a great time to be in tech, venture capitalists are starting to be more discerning with their money, so when deciding on a job, candidates will have to go beyond a big salary and look at a business's fundamentals to see if there are any red flags."

Phill Perkins

Vice President


"For junior-level workers in the tech community, 2023 will be the year of contracting. With some companies looking to reduce costs, contracting will become a way for those getting their start in IT to get their foot in the door and establish experience. Those that thrive in that environment will then have their options open to be full-time or to continue on as a contractor in new positions."

Vice President
