FIRST QUARTER 2015 DIGITAL JOBS INDEX – BOSTON AND NEW YORK OFF TO A SLOWER START COMPARED TO LAST YEAR

Jul 26, 2015 | ON Blogs

ON Search Partners, a leading retained executive search firm, has compiled the results of its quarterly East Coast Digital Jobs Index. Compared to the prior three years, both cities are off to a slower start in 2015 in terms of new job creation in the digital sector. New York’s first quarter digital hiring increased 3.4% while Boston’s increased 1.6%.

ON Search Partners’ John Barrett observed: “The first half of the year is normally the strongest in terms of new job creation. Both Boston and New York City created fewer new jobs than we would have expected in the first quarter. However, we expect to see stronger numbers in the second quarter of 2015.”

New York’s Top 10 list of job creators includes for the first time ClassPass. Also, NYC’s Up And Comers List for the first time includes Bustle, Button Inc., FreeWheel, JIBE, Kickstarter and Poppin.

Boston’s Top 10 list featured only familiar names from past quarters. No new entrants made the list of Top 10 job creators. However, the Up And Comers List included newcomers Salsify, BlueSnap, SiteSpect, Redpoint Global, Booster, PillPack, Wanderu and DealerRater.

Other interesting take-aways from the first quarter Digital Jobs Index include:
