Developers are not one-size-fits-all. Skill set and language demands vary by region, and for every bootcamp advocate or open source cheerleader, there’s someone quick to debate. But we do know that continual learning is table-stakes for every successful engineer. Whether it be mastering Go because demand is so high, or giving pair programming a try because so many other engineers seem to love it, the decisions engineers make have a long-term impact on their career success and satisfaction.

At Hired, we believe that tech talent should be in control of their job search, and we understand how complicated and painful finding a job can be. From the beginning, we’ve committed to arming our candidates with the data and insights they need to make the best career decisions. Developers are a diverse group, but with this data, we hope they are empowered to find a job they love with a salary they deserve.

Hired is on a mission to get everyone a job they love, so our hope is that developers will use the findings in this report to make more informed career decisions.
