“Seattle companies looking for value in 2024 will be hiring mid-level workers that might not have 100% of the skills they’re looking for but come in at a lower salary and are willing to grow their skillset. As opposed to more experienced workers that might bore easily of the job, hiring these skilled but junior workers can build loyalty and keep employees engaged as they continue to grow their career.”

Rachel Klenicki

Managing Director


“While neither the employed nor their employers have the upper hand in the 2023 job market, 2024 will see job seekers and hiring managers coming to a compromise on what is most important in an employment agreement. Companies cutting costs & corners with tech talent will lose out, and candidates may need to consider a more hybrid (versus fully remote) work environment.”

Kelsey Prisby

Vice President


“In 2024, we will see tech workers and hiring managers have a better understanding of how AI tools are impacting their workflows and how to successfully implement them. Artificial Intelligence has the chance to greatly improve productivity across tech, but only if workers are trained properly on what these tools can and cannot do.”
