2013: In retrospect.
Speaking of unicorns, we asked Jessica (aforementioned Junior Unicorn) to sift through lines and lines of data from 2013. Below is the graphic she compiled, highlighting some of the more interesting stats from the year.
Note: Generalized assumptions about the web/tech/design industries should not be inferred from our data. Instead, this data is just that—our data.
That being said, here are some notable stats from the year:
- New York, San Francisco, and Chicago round out the top U.S. cities for listings posted to Authentic Jobs. London, Amsterdam, and Toronto are tops for international cities.
- Nearly one-third (31%) of all listings were posted in the front-end development category. This number is slightly higher than it might be otherwise, given employers can choose up to two categories when posting a listing.
- Dashboard designer for Mercedes-Benz. Period. Sit on that for a minute. (Envious!)
- In 2013, nearly twice as many startups posted jobs compared to 2012.
2014 is already off to a great start, and we’ve got numerous things in the works, such as Crew.is and a substantial redesign for Authentic Jobs.
And don’t forget, our annual 50% off New Year’s sale continues through January 11.
