Salary Survey 2021 for IT and Data – Malta

Despite the current global COVID-19 pandemic, Malta has proven again that she can navigate through a global crisis steadily and safely without any major disturbances on the local IT jobs market. Regardless of the current situation, the Maltese market is displaying signs of prosperity and growth in 2021.

Over the last 5 years, Malta has experienced a steady increase in increase in salaries for software developers and other IT professions. There has been some minor skills shortages (in certain areas) and excellent availability of career opportunities for candidates. Organisations in the hospitality and retail industry have taken a hit and, in some cases, they have suspended recruitment plans. Most international and local Maltese organisations that are technology-oriented, haven’t experienced a major financial impact from this crisis and are showing signs of strength. They have increased their recruitment efforts to find the right IT profile for their teams.

People are readily available to participate in remote interview processes and some really talented people are available for a career move. Even though Malta never adopted strict restrictions in the movement of people and travel, we expect a significant rise in recruitment when all travel is fully operational and some kind of normality is restored. Malta remains an attractive location for skilled IT talent. It appears remote onboarding, online interviews and remote work with flexible hours will become a part of the natural recruitment process for companies going forward.
