While the number of jobs in the cyber security field has exploded due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, it has become clear that the demand for web developers and programmers who use

Ruby , which is one of the programming languages, is declining. I am.

Tech Jobs in the Time of COVID-IEEE Spectrum

Dice, a job search site, compared the changes in the engineering job market between February and March 2020 and published a report summarizing the changes in the job market. The report makes it easy to understand what kind of changes occurred in the job market around March when the effects of the new coronavirus began to appear in many parts of the United States.

According to Dice, in Silicon Valley, the sanctuary of American IT companies and startups, job openings for engineers increased by double digits from February to March. This is thought to be due to an increase in demand for products and services required for remote work such as message applications, email software, and cloud platforms. In Raleigh, North Carolina, the number of job offers for engineers has increased significantly at all IT companies such as IBM, Wells Fargo , Red Hat , Deloitte Tohmatsu Group , and Lenovo.

The graph below shows the percentage of job vacancies in March 2020 that increased or decreased by region by month. The number of vacancies is increasing in many regions, with the largest increase in vacancies from the previous month in Raleigh, NC (+ 28%). Engineer jobs are increasing in 19 cities including San Diego, CA (+ 23%), Arlington, VA (+ 20%), St. Louis, MO (+ 17%), Irving, TX (+ 15%) .. In Tampa, Florida and Houston, Texas, on the other hand, job vacancies did not change, with New York, NY (down 1%), Atlanta, GA (down 4%), Columbus, Ohio (down 5%), and Boston, MA (down 6%). (Decreased), the number of vacancies has decreased compared to February.

'The new coronavirus pandemic is impacting the demands of certain jobs in the technology sector in different ways. The biggest increase was in cybersecurity, up 20% from the previous month.

.NET Demand for developers and systems engineers has also increased by double-digit percentages, in contrast, the number of job openings for front-end engineers has declined significantly, probably due to the focus on core product and infrastructure development. I will analyze.

The graph below shows the percentage change in job vacancies by type of job compared to the previous month. As Dice reported, the highest number of jobs was the cybersecurity engineer (20% increase), and the lowest number of jobs was the front-end engineer (25% decrease). According to Dice's analysis, we are seeing a decline in recruitment of engineers not related to infrastructure development such as front-end engineers, graphic designers (down 17%), business intelligence analysts (down 13%).

In addition, the technical skills required during recruitment have changed significantly. The graph below shows how much the specific technical skills required for recruitment increased or decreased compared to the previous month. Among the recruitment, the three most demanded were system engineers (up 13%),

DevOps (up 9%), and scrum (up 8%). % Down), web developers (down 25%), version control (down 23%). The strange thing is that 'Demand for .NET developers is increasing, but demand for .NET skills is decreasing (down 4%).'

Looking at the 'employment rate of engineers compared to the previous month in March' by company, Amazon showed the largest growth, followed by Cisco Walmart Parsons. The reason why the hiring of engineers at these companies is accelerating is believed to be 'increasing demand for online shopping' and 'increasing demand for remote work.'

In addition, the top 25 most demanded technical skills in job listings for the first quarter (January-March) of 2020 are: The percentages listed next to the skills show how much the skills have become more demanding compared to the first quarter 2019 job listings.
