COVID-19 put extra pressure on eCommerce developers. With so many people relying on remote and online retail almost exclusively, e-commerce developers were stretched drastically thin.

But an overwhelming 94% of developers surveyed said they don’t believe their workload will return to pre-pandemic levels, even as more people head back out to shop in person. In fact, 45% of developers think that their workload will actually increase.

PayPal retained Wakefield Research to survey 1,000 ecommerce software developers and 500 U.S. business decision-makers (BDMs) who manage them to find how organizations were impacted by the pandemic. This took into account developers in both small and large companies, full-time and contract employees and were found spread across the country. Importantly too, the survey asked how they see the future being shaped in terms of the demands placed on ecommerce software developers and their organizations.
