The pandemic has resulted in a major shift in software engineers, with 8 in 10 wanting remote or hybrid work options post-pandemic.
Terminal conducted a survey of 1,108 software engineers. The respondents were primarily from Canada, Mexico and Latin America, although also included ones from the US, Europe and Asia.
According to the survey, 80% of engineers want remote work anywhere from 60 to 100% of the time post-pandemic. 83% of respondents said they wanted some kind of hybrid option, allowing them to work from both home and office.
“The rise of the remote work movement, fueled by the COVID-19 pandemic’s stay-at-home orders, has established a new era of engineer expectations,” said Clay Kellogg, CEO of Terminal. “Our findings show that overall, engineers love the flexibility and benefits that remote work offers and aren’t going back to the old ways. Business leaders risk widening the tech talent shortage at their companies if they don’t build a long-term remote work strategy that focuses on mental health, flexible schedules and team-building.”
