With more than 2,100 organizations participating in this hiring wave, the pace of growth has exceeded expectations, painting a compelling narrative of AI’s ascent in the job market.

Analyzing the trends between September 2021 and September 2023, Deel’s data unveils significant growth:

The surge in AI hiring knows no geographical boundaries, propelled by the rapid embrace of AI technology on a global scale. This trend toward international hiring has been facilitated by emerging Employer of Record (EOR) models, fostering the cross-border integration of highly skilled AI professionals.

Moreover, since the inception of ChatGPT, AI talent’s internationalization has seen noteworthy trends:

  • India has taken the lead in creating new AI roles, spanning AI Engineer, AI Training Lead, and AI Computer Vision Engineer positions.
  • The US has been increasingly hiring AI talent from Brazil, Canada, and Argentina, while Germany, the US, and the UK have seen a substantial rise in new AI contracts.

Despite the exponential growth in AI-related roles and the technology’s integration across various sectors, the current landscape suggests that AI is not poised to supplant human roles entirely. Instead, it seems to be augmenting and complementing human capabilities, fostering a symbiotic relationship between technology and human expertise.
