The context: Let's compare these findings to the prior year.

  • In the equivalent period for 2021, a total of 21,304 jobs were posted to Hitmarker.
  • It's worth remembering that the gaming industry boomed, as did job opportunities, due to the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns. The number of jobs posted on a monthly basis reduced as the year went on, especially after Q1 was over.
  • Interestingly, intermediate jobs made up 46.4% of the total pool in that period. However, there were fewer senior-level roles (37.4% of listings) and more junior opportunities (11.1% of listings).
