A report compiled by Paul Tostevin, Associate Director for Savills in London, showed that in terms of business and tech environment, city buzz, talent pools, real estate costs and mobility, New York has become the world’s leading tech city, beating both San Francisco and London. Although San Francisco still offers a slightly better tech environment and lower real estate costs, New York comes out on top with a far better business environment which has lead to the growth of many new startups.
This has given New York a reputation of being the number one location for new startups to prosper thanks to both home grown and outside talent being at an all-time availability high in New York. This has caught the attention of venture capital investments but also overseas specialists that are looking to broaden their horizons and join both existing tech giants that operate in New York and also new ambitious startups with promising room for growth.
However, this growth into the world’s leading tech city has also attracted the attention of the B2B marketplace especially as operating costs increase and competition becomes fierce. Field Engineer currently offers one of the fastest-growing global talent marketplaces in the world and is based in New York. With specialists in both engineering and tech across 190 different countries, Field Engineer is boosting the amount of available talent in telecom and internet industries by providing an on-demand workforce that is both affordable and readily available.
On-demand workforces are not a new concept, but Field Engineer’s international approach gives it a presence across the globe and not just in a confined geographic location. This has enabled Field Engineer to provide smart hands services to global retailers and software companies, delivering on-site support services such as break-fix maintenance, annual maintenance services and CPE installation services. This has opened up more opportunities for businesses in the telecoms and internet industries to partner with clients overseas without the need to invest resources into expanding into another country. Instead, with Field Engineer’s on-demand workforce, field services can come at a fraction of the price and at reduced risk.
Field Engineer’s global services have disrupted the computer systems support and telecom industry in a number of different ways.
Taking advantage of top-tier talent often involves high salaries and benefit packages due to the nature of full-time employment positions. However, this is prohibitively expensive for startups and severely reduces their chances of flourishing as a successful company. Personnel costs need to be kept low in order for a startup to prosper, and this is why Field Engineer is in a great position.
Not only is it the fastest-growing marketplace for engineering and tech talent, but Field Engineer is also a source of consistent employment opportunities for specialists around the world. This has attracted many engineering and tech experts to leave the comfort of their full-time employment and seek more opportunities to work on their own terms with a service like Field Engineer. It has also attracted global talent that was previously locked by their geographical location, enabling telecoms and internet industries to provide quality services to their customers all over the world.
With such a large pool of talent available in New York and growing opportunities for specialists around the world, Field Engineer is in a great position to offer specialist B2B marketplace services for all the ambitious startups that will be set up in New York over the next couple of years. Whether it’s an on-demand workforce or field services across the world, Field Engineer offers scalable and affordable options for growing telecoms and internet organization and will be a key factor in helping new startups proposer.
