re: What's the state of the software job market? VIEW POST


It seems like it depends heavily on who's using the product being built. Healthcare software is probably going to be fine. My company's user base is not even allowed to work right now because of stay-at-home orders, and we're still doing fine thankfully, but I know that's the not the same for all. I hope that the companies doing well continue to hire so that the people who've lost their jobs because of this can keep their careers and support their families.

It depends on what kind, too. Either hiring like mad for COVID and telemedicine projects since those devs are burnt out... or furloughing for project cuts. My project's userbase can do a smidge at home so we're still around, but the projects that require being inside patient rooms to use the software or focus with deprioritized health areas are now getting their people dispersed elsewhere.
