CyberCoders Top Ten Tech Skills of 2013
CyberCoders (www.CyberCoders.com), a recruiting firm, says new data reveals the tech skills in the most demand for the highest paying technology jobs.
CyberCoders analyzed more than 10,000 tech companies and their hiring requirements to compile the list of the hottest skills in the tech space. Data from CyberCoders reveals that candidates who have experience with iOS development, cloud computing programming and front-end development skills are most in demand in today’s tech career landscape.
"A common theme among these technology skills is the need for open source, mobile, cloud or big data technologies, like iOS, Azure and Hadoop," says Matt Miller, chief technical officer of CyberCoders.
"Everyday we see the engineers with these skills getting an average of four to five job offers," adds CEO and founder of CyberCoders, Heidi Golledge. "Companies that provide cutting edge technology, great salaries and a positive company culture, will have a better chance at getting the tech candidates they need to compete in the ever changing social, data and mobile workplace."
Front-end development for mobile applications and websites remains a top priority for companies. Developers who are coding with some of the new mobile optimized languages such as CSS3 and HTML5 are vital to tech companies that are looking to build content-rich pages with relatively light code.
UX/UI designers are in strong demand as companies appreciate the importance for creating compelling and engaging user experiences, according to CyberCoders. iOS and Android development remains one of the most in demand skills in technology as more and more companies see the necessity to have a presence on native mobile apps, like iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android.
"This is an incredible time for those who have tech skills or are willing to learn them. Unlike the dot-com bubble of the last decade, our need for continually improving technology is constant due to our improved processes and every day enjoyment of our smart phones and big data," says Golledge.
