When companies have software engineering positions that go unfilled for months, the problem can seem obvious. There are just not enough developers looking for jobs.
According to U.S. Labor statistics, as of December 2020, the global talent shortage amounted to 40 million skilled workers worldwide. By 2030, the global talent shortage is expected to reach 85.2 million. ?ompanies worldwide risk losing $8.4 trillion in revenue because of the lack of skilled talent.
The reality, though, is more complicated than just a shortage of developers. The problem also has a lot to do with how most companies hire developers.
BruntWork, the world’s leading provider of web developers from the Philippines, reports that it has placed hundreds of positions over the last few months. It uses coding assessments in the hiring process, often customized to the exact needs of its’ clients to fit their precise needs. Threshold or scoring parameters can also be set to give clients a better look at which candidates are meeting their exact specifications.
BruntWork reports that there are millions of people out there who have achieved an admirable skill level across various tech stacks, including WordPress, Shopify, Woocommerce and everything in between. In order to hire the best developers for it’s clients, BruntWork operates remote teams, which means the location or educational parameters most organizations are working against before are practically non-existent now.
The talent is out there. BruntWork has it in droves and is ranked number 1 by Review Rumble for having the best developers in the Philippines.
