The new wave of Indian IT jobs is on the rise, with the number of software engineers in the country climbing from 10,000 to 40,000 in the past year.
In 2017, the number was 16,000, but the new jobs are coming from across the country, according to a new report by the consulting firm Technomic.
Tech job vacancies in India are higher than in the US and UK.
In the US, they rose by 1,200 positions between February and April, and by 5,600 in March.
In May, the US experienced its biggest software job growth since the financial crisis, and tech job vacancies have increased by nearly 5,000 since that time.
The trend is mirrored in India, with vacancies rising by 6,600 jobs in the last year.
While IT jobs in India have been on the upswing, the pace of new hires in India is still a little slow.
In January, there were nearly 30,000 software engineers and developers in India.
In March, the figure was slightly lower at 30,500, Technomic said.
The growth of these new hires comes as India grapples with a number of challenges, including the high number of deaths and the ongoing protests against the controversial Goods and Services Tax (GST).
The number of Indian jobs that are software engineers, and not developers, is expected to grow by around 50,000 between 2017 and 2021.
The job is highly competitive, and many engineers are leaving India to take jobs in Europe, Australia, and elsewhere, as well as other parts of the world.
However, India is not a high-tech nation, with an average annual GDP of $6.6 billion.
This means that the country’s software engineering workforce is smaller than that of the US or UK, but larger than the number in the UK or US.
