Software engineer jobs in Rhode Island climb

Sunday, April 17th, 2011

The demand for software engineering jobs in Rhode Island is ramping up.

The number of new online job ads for Computer Software Engineers posted over the past 30 days is up 12% compared to the same period last year, according to www.wantedanalytics.com, the leading source of real-time business intelligence for the talent marketplace.

Employers currently have more than 56,000 positions open for Computer Software Engineers nationwide. There are approximately 850,000 Computer Software Engineers in the United States, creating a ratio of one job ad for every 15 Computer Software Engineers. One year ago, there were 18 candidates for competing for every one job.

“Hiring demand for Computer Software Engineers continues to show steady improvement, and the competition for top talent is fierce,” said Bruce Murray, CEO and President of WANTED Technologies. “Hiring demand for Computer Software Engineers has recovered to within 3% of its four-year peak in June 2008 of 60,000 job ads.”

At the state level, California has exceeded its four-year peak with nearly 14,000 online jobs currently posted for Computer Software Engineers. This is up 34% versus the same period last year. Washington has the second highest volume of available jobs and saw a 59% improvement.

With the large volume of Computer Software Engineer positions currently available, recruiters will have challenges filling these open requisitions. Employers will have a harder time hiring Computer Software Engineers in Washington compared to other locations in the United States, according to WANTED’s Hiring Scale™.

The Hiring Scale measures conditions in the job markets by comparing hiring demand and labor supply. The Hiring Scale™ is part of the WANTED Analytics platform that offers business intelligence for the talent marketplace.
