PyCon 2014-2015 Remote Hiring Survey

This data was collected at PyCon 2014 and 2015 in Montreal, Quebec. Companies were asked if they were open to hiring remote developers (outside any of their offices).

The CSV file included provides the company name, the city the company provided as their headquarters, and their response.

Description of Data

  • -1 - Company expressed no interest in hiring any remote developers
  • 0 - Company expressed interest with limitations
  • 1 - Company expressed interest in remote developers
  • If the status is blank, then I was not able to get any information about the company.

Summary of 2014 Data

The average company at PyCon is slightly more disposed towards only hiring on-site developers (with an average response of -0.022).
