We decided to do a little digging on the startup job market to see where things stand. With all the talk of impending doom for the startup ecosystem, the amount of startup jobs could be an indicator of the health of the business.
We’ll start with Indeed Trends. Since 2012 the number of jobs that mention the word ‘startup‘ has been relatively stable. In fact, we are just coming down off numbers that we haven’t seen since 2013 according to the chart.
But we are going to go beyond what Indeed can tell us. From now on, each month we will begin tracking startup jobs across the major national job aggregators in 3 locations: New York, Austin, and San Francisco. We will use Indeed, SimplyHired, Ziprecruiter and Glassdoor for our baseline numbers.
