From January to June this year, the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Macrosector, on average, hired around 12,700 professionals per month throughout Brazil. In total, 76,340 new jobs were created. This is a crescent that has not stopped since June 2020.

The data are from Brasscom's Jobs and Salaries Monitor, a monthly report by the entity, which tracks the movements of the technology job market. Hiring in the first half represents a growth of 4% in relation to the total number of people who were employed at the end of 2021 – there were 1.9 million.

The increase in ICT Macrosector is significantly higher than the rest of the Brazilian economy. From the close of 2021 to June 2022, national jobs grew by 2.7%. Tech salaries also remain above average, with a difference of 118% from the national average salary.

The ICT Macrosector is formed by the ICT sector itself (technology companies), the Telecom sector (telecommunications operators) and IT in House, which refers to the hiring of technology professionals by companies from other sectors (banks, electronic etc.).

“The numbers show the resilience of the ICT sector”, says the president of Brasscom, Sergio Paulo Gallindo. “At the same time, they are the result of the great movement undertaken by technology companies to be able to meet the needs of other sectors, which, due to the pandemic, had to type even faster”.

Between June 2020 and June 2022, the ICT Macrosector recorded monthly only positive balances in terms of hiring talent. In 2020, more than 50 thousand jobs were created. In 2021, the number was almost four times higher – at 198,600. “If the positive trend continues in the second semester, the expectation is that the Macrosector will exceed the 2 million workers mark by the end of 2022”, announces Gallindo.
