Software Engineers, Data Analysts/Scientists Most Wanted for IT Titans, Tech Disruptors

Computer Science Skill, 6-Yr Experience Most In-Demand

Software engineers, data analysts and data scientists are the most sought-after jobs in the information technology market.

This is according to a recent survey of over 8,200 job postings and over 70,000 resumés. These resumés are the ones that high-value startups and established tech companies have been looking for.

Paysa defined titans as public companies that had their initial public offering (IPO) most than 10 years ago. Titans have a current valuation of over $100 billion, according to Paysa.

It defined tech disruptors as privately held or public companies that had an IPO within the last 10 years. Disruptors have a current valuation of over $10 billion, Paysa said.

Software engineers were most in demand from both titans and tech disruptors. These include Airbnb, Facebook, Snap Inc (Snapchat), Twitter, Uber, Amazon, Apple, Google, and Oracle, according to the survey. It said the notable exception was Microsoft, which had slightly more openings for product experts and advisers.

Data and Disruptors

Job openings on positions for software engineers, data analysts and data scientists have been most in demand in four out of the five tech disruptors, and three of the titans. Paysa said all 10 tech disruptors and titans have been growing quickly. Amazon however overtook the rest in 2016 by a large margin, posting nearly six times as many jobs as Microsoft.

But it said Amazon’s high rate of talent acquisition might not actually indicate a higher rate of company growth. It said Amazon has also been known for its high employee turnover. In 2013, it ranked as having the second highest turnover rate of any Fortune 500 company.

Based on the number of employees, Amazon is also twice the size of other high-value companies analyzed. An elevated hiring rate might just be a product of normal employee turnover, Paysa said.

Python and Java

Both titans and tech startups mostly need those with mad skills in computer science and experience of about 6 years, Paysa revealed.

For tech startups, following computer science are skills in infrastructure, management, and analysis. Coding languages most often mentioned in job requirements included Python, C, and Java, the survey said. But for titans, following computer science skills specifically in Java, C, Oracle, and Python are skills in management and software development.
