Omna Search: State of the (startup) Union
Back again with another update from your favorite recruiting firm. It’s been a barn burner of a year so far with a war in Europe, rising interest rates, inflation at 40-year highs, and the NASDAQ down almost 20%. Despite funding announcements tanking after the news of Russia’s attack on Ukraine (Crunchbase), 2022 has seen impressive funding amounts come through for mid and late stage ventures, and Crunchbase’s Unicorn board still has more than 1200 companies on it (for context, it hit 1K for the first time ever last year). The show goes on.
Life seems like it’s been slowly transitioning back to ‘normal’ post-pandemic, but candidate and employer sentiment still signals a strong preference for a remote work environment in 2022. Over half of the jobs posted on our job board are fully remote.
