The job market for developers continues to sizzle as companies ramp up hiring to meet expanding needs for a number of growing markets. Each week the Hired.com platform, which connects developers with job offers from top companies, analyzes the results of company engagement with developers on its platform. 

Due to the large number of companies actively recruiting on the site, the platform’s analytics provides a top barometer for trends within the developer job market.

For the first week of March, Hired.com experienced 1,445 offers on its platform. The company has created a unique interactive visualization graphic that provides the ability to look at each position offered for the previous week - including the job type, specific skills required, company type, and salary range. 

Below are numbers extracted from this analysis. For a deeper look, you can search and view details on each of the 1,445 jobs provided in the graphic as well as view other statistical information from the platform here.
