2023 top employers winning tech talent

Hired's 2023 List of Top Employers Winning Tech Talent

Hired awards employers based on hiring activity and processes demonstrating equity, efficiency, and transparency; Parachute Health, Beyond Finance, Yum! Brands, and ITV among top employers.

Hired released its 2023 List of Top Employers Winning Tech Talent, ranking the top 10 small, medium, and large companies in North America and the top companies in the UK. The list is based on Hired’s proprietary platform data evaluated through the lens of three core pillars. 

The past few years in tech hiring have been challenging – and 2023 is no exception. Hired believes the most successful companies adapted and pivoted this year, guided by employer brand values and fair hiring processes. These values are key to making hiring better for everyone involved:

Equitable company cultures and hiring practices level the playing field for a diverse range of talent. Research shows varied experiences and backgrounds are key to breeding innovation, yet equity continues to be at risk. 


Efficient hiring processes streamline hiring to improve productivity and support a positive candidate experience by effectively advancing candidates through the funnel. As hiring begins to ramp up, efficiency will be key to the reboot as the change will come on quickly.

Transparency in particular shined this year. New laws around salary transparency were the first steps in closing wage gaps between underrepresented candidates and their white male counterparts. For the purpose of the List, we focused on transparency in compensation.

However, in good hiring practices, Transparency also refers to how open employers are when communicating with candidates whether it’s a clearly defined hiring process or a candidate’s status. This value helps inform and empower jobseekers, while also yielding equity and efficiency.
