Welcome to our February Newsletter

We kick off 2024 with a wave of excitement and industry developments. Last month, Maersk & Hapag Lloyd unveiled a collaborative initiative that promises to reshape communication across our markets.

In financial news, Vortexa secured an impressive $34 million in funding, and there were a number of by strategic alliances and key appointments across the maritime, energy and supply chain software space.

However, our maritime technology sector witnesses a shift, with live vacancies experiencing a 30-40% YoY decrease (insights from our bespoke job lead scraping tools, market discussions, and public LinkedIn advertisments).

Concurrently, the market sees a surge in the availability of senior executives, attributed to recent redundancies in FTSE and other publicly traded tech and market insight companies.

Amidst these changes, hiring projects are gaining momentum, especially in the realms of renewable energy, carbon monitoring, chartering tech, and offshore SaaS.

Explore the opportunities and trends shaping our industry’s landscape below and take a listen to our most recent podcast episodes.

Stay connected.
