Top 10 Hot Tech Leadership Jobs for 2021 32% Increase in demand in 2021 over 2020

In 2020 we saw an emergence of a new economy on top of an already tight talent market. As a result, demand for tech leadership will continue to increase during 2021.


According to a study by Jeff Christian Partners based on conversations with over 100 tech leaders and recruiters, 2021 we will see a 32% increase in demand for Top Tech Leadership over 2020.
