FinTech Silicon Valley Jobs

Has the Pandemic Improved Your Chances of Landing Your Dream Job?

Tech companies are starting to realize what so many technologists have known for years: many technology jobs can be done from anywhere. Indeed, COVID-19 has upended the notion that reporting to an office every weekday is paramount to collaboration and productivity.

Even after the pandemic passes, it seems, many technologists will continue to have a reprieve from the daily commute. Firms such as Twitter have already announced that a majority of employees will work remotely on a permanent basis. Others, such as Google, have pushed back their office-reopening dates at least a year, and may institute a more flexible schedule for employees going forward.

If technology jobs are indeed becoming more remote-centric, does that change your chances of landing a particular role? If your longtime dream is to land a job at a huge Silicon Valley firm, will you need to consider moving to a city where such a company has an office, or can you stay put in your current town?

Large tech companies that are going remote will obviously offer lots of opportunities for long-term workers; however, some technology jobs may remain location-based, either because they’re tightly linked to a physical location (such as a datacenter) or because of security needs (such as jobs where work takes place in a locked-down facility). For those tech giants that haven’t offered long-term guidance on remote work, such as Apple, it’s a safe bet they’ll continue to focus much hiring around specific locations unless they suggest otherwise.
