RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – Tech job openings have declined across North Carolina but that’s not the case among the 50 companies in the Triangle that are tracked for TechWire’s exclusive weekly jobs report. Collectively, these firms added more than 30 positions last week, lifting total openings to more than 2,500.

But there’s no doubt the state’s tech sector is hurting, according to the latest unemployment data released last week.

He also notes that some 1,300 jobs were cut in the tech sector while more traditional jobs grew – a flip of what happened during the COVID pandemic.

“Maybe the most interesting part of the report is where jobs are being created and what sectors are cutting jobs.  The information sector (tech), which boomed during the pandemic, is clearly retreating, with a cut of 1300 jobs in the State in February,” N.C. State economist Dr. Mike Walden told WRAL TechWire.

In fact, 48 of 50 companies have openings. ChannelAdvisor lists no openings locally but is hiring outside the Triangle, the company says.

Here’s a snapshot of who’s hiring in the list of the Triangle’s top 50 employers:
