What is the current state of technical screening? How many companies are looking for a JavaScript developer? How are tech stacks typically bundled together and how does that affect the technical hiring industry?

These are all relevant IT recruitment questions which are often answered based on gut feeling.

The good news, we now have the data to answer them. We do so in our latest technical screening report.

Ladies and gentlemen, we proudly present the DevSkiller Global Technical Hiring & Skills Report 2019.

What’s in our technical screening report?
