Don't attach any special meaning to the numbers. Although the numbers of posts are increasing each year, you can't really say anything about the job market from these trends. The only thing we really know is that more companies used jobs.perl.org each year.

I know some people have written some things to scrape the various commercial sites for jobs, so I'd be curious to see the historical data for those if anyone has them.
