Over 30% of Jobs Openings in Creator Economy Startups Are for Engineering Roles in 2024

The creator economy will be worth an estimated $480 billion by 2027 according to Goldman Sachs, but this has to do with more than just the creators who represent the face of the industry. In spite of the fact that this is the case, there have been widespread layoffs in the industry that are quite similar to the layoffs seen in other industries around the world.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that engineering jobs in creator economy startups are still in high demand. According to a new report released by Creator Economy Jobs, 30.3% of the jobs that were posted in the first quarter of 2024 were engineering roles. The rise of AI might have something or the other to do with this.

The second highest number of job openings was for sales roles, which represented 16.1% with all things having been considered and taken into account. Marketing roles also comprised 12.7% of the sum total. It bears mentioning that a significant proportion of the jobs that are available in the creator economy are mid-level roles. 43.8% of the positions that were listed in the first quarter of 2024 adhered to the mid-level label, with 22.5% being experienced roles.

21.8% were for managerial positions, whereas 5.8% were for directors. Interestingly enough, entry level positions were some of the lowest out there, with just 4.6% offering roles to people who are still rather new to the industry.

Another fact that was presented within these findings was that 40% of all jobs came from the US. The second highest proportion came from remote roles, or 11.5% to be precise. After that, Germany and the UK tied for second place with 5%. As for the city that had the highest percentage of jobs in the creator economy, San Francisco came out on top with 7.6%, followed by Los Angeles with 6.5%. New York came in third with 4.2%, followed by London with 4.1%, and then Jakarta rounded off the top 5 with 3.2%.
