In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, it’s natural to be concerned about the future of the job market. With many fields seeing job cuts, tech workers may find themselves faced with concerns about what the future holds. The good news is that in the long-term, tech jobs hold a good deal of promise.

At One Tech Engineering, our Minnesota technical and engineering recruiters specialize in staying up-to-date on tech industry hiring trends. Here’s what you need to know about the top tech jobs right now.

Industry Changes

Many technology firms will continue to grow in the long-term. But faced with the current climate of uncertainty, their hiring practices may temporarily change. This isn’t all bad news, though. Many firms will be focused on hiring within budget to get the most within a salary range rather than laying on heavy signing bonuses and benefits. While top-tier executive positions will temporarily freeze for many firms, the wheels keep turning on day-to-day operations.

Some employers may be slower to hire, focused more on filling necessary roles by working with contract employees for the purpose of scalability without long-term commitment. Fortunately, many of these contract roles may later transition to full-time positions, making working with a recruiter like One Tech a smart choice right now.

These are the top tech jobs right now:

1.   Software Jobs

Software engineers will continue to be in demand in the coming year right alongside system engineers and software architects. Firms are looking for professionals with expert-level Java and C++ knowledge. Python will also be high on the skill list for competitive software engineers.

2.   Data Scientists

Employers are beginning to use data scientists for a wider range of applications. Firms are seeking data scientists with technical proficiency in Spark, Java, Hadoop, and SQL programming.

3.   Product managers

Charged with guiding product success, product managers fill one of the most in-demand and crucial roles in tech and will continue to be in high demand in the coming years.

4.   Development roles

Employers are seeking developers, front end developers, and full-stack developers in high numbers this year.
