Tech layoffs keep piling up, but don’t give up hope. Nearly 600 fast-growth startups are still scrambling to fill 4,679 open positions…and those numbers keep climbing.
You can discover all of these open roles—and more—on Stillhiring.fyi, The Org’s twist on buzzy tech layoff tracker Layoffs.fyi. The site officially launched on Wednesday, and it’s constantly updated to reflect new job postings listed on The Org. Hiring companies featured on the tracker run the gamut from tiny fintechs to mega nonprofits. Here’s a small sampling: Corporate credit card startup Pleo is hiring for 202 roles, Elon Musk’s brain chip firm Neuralink is hiring 135 and content management system Contentful wants 92 new employees. With almost 5,000 open roles in total, you can find jobs ranging from frontend platform engineer to e-learning curriculum designer.
The site aims to be a resource for talented tech professionals, especially those who’ve faced recent layoffs. Thousands of workers have lost their jobs since May--at miniscule startups and late-stage beasts like Klarna and Netflix. CEOs are blaming runaway inflation, cautious investors and a stock market that’s fallen more than 20% since January. (In the words of Musk: “I have a super bad feeling about the economy.”) Some tech giants like Uber, Coinbase and Twitter froze hiring or rescinded standing offers in an effort to avoid layoffs, for the time being at least.
But, as underlined by Stillhiring.fyi, it’s not all doom and gloom. U.S. employers added 390,000 jobs in May, and the overall unemployment rate remained at 3.6% for the third month in a row--slightly above a 50-year low, according to recent Labor Department data. Most job gains occurred in the leisure and hospitality industry, but the professional and business services industry also saw substantial growth.
A robust job board isn’t the only sign of a healthy startup: job-seekers can also look to recent funding rounds. Startups with fresh venture capital dollars are more likely to weather the economic storm that may wait ahead, even if investors get a bit stingier.
