Berlin/Hamburg, 16 June 2017 - Earlier this year, WIRED magazine proclaimed 2017 to be the year that the Internet of Things (IoT) would die. The security risks, hacking scandals and lack of useful technology meant that the connectivity hype would come to an end, they said. To test this view, job meta-search engine Joblift analysed the job market for IoT specialists and concluded that despite WIRED’s verdict, vacancies increased, on average, 14 times as much as the whole job market in the UK. In addition, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) dominated job postings, and IoT jobs are almost exclusively situated in the south of England.
Joblift is meta search engine for currently more than 1,000,000 jobs from over 100 partner job boards. Joblift’s customised search filters and email notifications allow users to personalise their search criteria. The company was founded in 2015 by Lukas Erlebach and Malte Widenka. At the two locations in Hamburg and Berlin, Joblift currently employs a team of around 40 employees.
