Tech industry layoffs shifted employer demand in 2022 to candidates with more experience, with senior talent landing more interview requests and higher salary increases than junior talent, according to Hired's 2023 State of Software Engineers report.

The report also found that remote roles commanded higher salaries than local roles, especially in smaller markets. Remote roles paid more in every market except London at the end of December 2022.

More engineers are feeling the pressure to work more hours. More than half of respondents feel the push to work more hours or that the request is imminent.

Back-end engineers saw the highest demand, receiving 59% of all interview requests on Hired's platform, up 3% from 2021. That's higher than full-stack engineers (56%) and front-end engineers (25%). Forty-one percent of surveyed employers said that the most difficult roles to fill over the last six months were back-end engineers, 38% said engineering managers, and 27% said full-stack engineers.
