Are you looking for a job? These are the nine most demanded IT profiles

The IT industry continues to change and transform at full speed. The professional profiles most in demand a few years ago, such as app developers for mobile devices, or cloud experts, give prominence to increasingly specialized ones, such as robotics and artificial intelligence engineers, new network architects or auditors in Informatic security.

This is explained by at least one recent report by Comptyain which he explains that these are the nine most in-demand IT professions at the moment.

Integrator of multi-cloud architectures

More and more companies coexist with more than one cloud environment. The hybrid cloud is growing by leaps and bounds and there are not a few companies that are committed to distributing the different workloads between several clouds. In this scenario, the importance of the profile of the integrator of multi-cloud architectureswith sufficient knowledge about the different infrastructures and the tools that allow a “peaceful coexistence” of all of them within the company.

Data Scientist and data engineer

A “classic” profile that is often cited when talking about new IT professions is, without a doubt, that of the data scientist. From being an emerging trend, the demand for qualified personnel capable of understanding the story told by data and aligning it with business objectives has skyrocketed in recent years.

On the one hand, companies, many of the self-proclaimed “data driven” ones, are looking for people who are capable of developing machine learning models that are capable of extracting more information (although above all useful) from data that does not stop growing. On the other hand, engineers capable of building systems that optimize the use of these models.

robotics engineer

Now that a new edition of the Global Robot Expoit is worth remembering that the role of robotics expert, especially that associated with industry 4.0is and will continue to be among the most demanded in the technology sector.

The new industrial robots are however different from those that were produced just a few years ago. The most demanded profiles are those of those who not only have knowledge about the development and production of automated equipment, but also work with AI, IoT sensors, automated data analysis, etc.

Network Architect

New network architects and administrators represent two of those “classic positions” that are, however, not so easily found in the job market.

If this is so, it is mainly because companies are substantially increasing their investment in implementing new network technologies that allow them to be more efficient, work faster and obtain greater productivity.

In the short term, the deployment of WiFi 6 in organizations and in the middle of 5G, will become two vectors that will drive the demand for this type of professional.

Full Stack Engineer

A Full Stack developer is one who works with complete data structures, from the back end to the front end. Thus, the Full Stack can work anywhere regardless of dependencies, since its knowledge allows it to work with complete stacks in both fields.

In this sense, the growing popularity of technologies such as the development progressive web appsor the web itself comp main development space for mobile Apps (especially those of a business nature), are driving the demand for this type of professional, among other things valued for their knowledge of open-source development tools, more than the fact that it is tied to a single platform.

Deep learning and AI engineer

We could not make a ranking of the most demanded IT profiles and not echo the enormous expectations that have been generated and continue to be generated regarding the development of new artificial intelligence applications and deep learning models.

In this sense, the demand for engineers specialized in AI, machine learning or deep learning has not only not stabilized, but will continue to grow in double digits over the next few years. And it is that as much as the concept of AI has become a buzzword and such interesting developments as Amazon Echo or Google Duplex are being made, let us not forget that it is still a technology that is in full adolescence, in which human intervention is still very necessary.

Limiting the amount of human resources needed to train, but above all to supervise and correct the models and ensure that the algorithms are effectively capable of learning by themselves, are the next challenges.

Security analist

It’s no secret: security breaches and data leaks have multiplied in recent years. Few are the companies that have managed to remain relatively safe. Having qualified professionals in cybersecurity has become a critical requirement for many companies, increasingly aware that any disaster in this field can translate into millionaire losses.

The new cybersecurity analysts are not so much engineers capable of “stopping” any threat, but professionals with broad and diversified knowledge, capable of understanding what is happening outside the walls of their organization, who know how to think strategically and who have the necessary skills to align IT security with the rest of the company’s objectives.

IoT Engineer

IoT devices have entered through the front door of many companies, especially in the industrial sector. The development of associated technologies such as edge computing or cloud on premises have also promoted the development of a type of professional that goes beyond the management of smart sensors and tangentially is also associated with areas such as Big Data analytics or artificial intelligence.

VR/AR Developer

Despite the “broken promises” by devices such as Magic Leap or the still very “work in progress” of HoloLens could indicate that the development of AR/VR scenarios has fallen into “misfortune”, the truth is that especially in the professional sector there is still a lot of interest in promoting both technologies.

Once again, beyond the entertainment industry, it is the large companies that are showing the most interest in promoting this technology, especially in areas such as education and training of employees in technical areas and in which saving costs in this sense, can really make a difference.
