The report also touches on the number of workers in the application economy in Indonesia. The number reaches 162 thousand jobs and this number is divided into direct and indirect jobs.
About 36 thousand came from direct work as application developers or other technical roles. A similar amount also comes from indirect work, such as non-tech roles at tech companies. Meanwhile, the remaining 90 thousand is spillover work.
However, he stated that this number was still very small compared to the large ecosystem in Indonesia.
“This number is still very small and can still grow. That is why it requires skills development and the need to ensure greater development,” he explained.
