The Silicon Valley of India, Bengaluru, is the leading city for those seeking job opportunities in the technology sector, with 22% of all job postings in the country coming from the city.

The city is also the number one when it comes to jobs in the area of blockchain, which is considered to be the next emerging area for job creation, according to a study by a job site Indeed. 

Delhi-NCR stands second with 11% of job postings, Pune, Hyderabad and Mumbai are at 10%, 9% and 8%, respectively. This year, smaller cities such as Mohali and Ahmedabad also figure in the top 10 cities with 4% and 3% job postings respectively, the job site said.

The data for this study has been taken between May 2015 and May 2018 across the country, Indeed said.

Sashi Kumar, managing director, Indeed, said, “Today organisations must keep constantly evolving in order to keep pace with the advent of new technologies, be it artificial intelligence, machine learning, or big data analytics. New technologies bring with them opportunities for employment, as new job roles emerge in their wake. However, while there are ample jobs available in India, the need of the hour is talent that is adequately skilled to fulfil the responsibilities the job entails.”

While the actively job seeking age group of 20-29 year olds continue to show a relatively high level of interest in the technology sector – indeed, the age group is also the most actively hired.

Interestingly in this survey, senior job seekers above 55 years are also showing significant interest in the sector. Conversely, the 40-49 age group shows the least interest in the sector.

There has been consistent demand for professionals in the technology sector, with jobs outnumbering talent, due to a persistent skill gap or talent mismatch. While India produces a significant share of the world’s graduates, there is an urgent need to ensure parity between skilling programmes and industry’s requirements, the report said.
