Five most popular languages for Tech Job Seekers

Information technology is a lucrative industry for Tech job seekers, but it is ever evolving. To ensure you start your technology career with the right language is a must.

We at SynergisticIT did an analysis of major Technology arears from West to east coast namely San Francisco bay Area, New York, and Dallas, Texas. This graph chart predicts the most in-demand jobs according to Indeed and Dice and number of jobs for each language namely Java, Python, Ruby on rails, C# and C++.

As per our finding java is the most popular language as per our analysis of nationwide and SF Bay Area, New York and Dallas-Texas areas.

As we can see in below pie chart, Java holds the first position, it has nearly 37% of job opportunities in nationwide IT market.

After Java, the second most popular language among employers and employees is Python, Python occupies 29% of jobs in the IT sector now and is the second most popular language.

San Francisco Bay Area is a technology hub. Companies like Google, Apple, twitter, Facebook, Intel, Cisco Systems, Tesla, Salesforce, Linkedin, Netflix and AMD are located here. Most of these companies have regular demand for Java Programmers as it is scalable, platform independent , mobile and widely implemented and also Python which is a dynamic and easy to learn and implement.  So, we can see in below Pie chart these two prominent languages are ruling most of the job demand. Even though Python covers the job percentage of 37%, Java covers 36% percent of job market in the bay area and even then we found that almost as much as 40% of Python jobs also required the knowledge of Java.

We did an analysis based on Dice and Indeed in the New York area, and we got very predictable results here too, as we can see in below pie chart, Java is again ruling the Software job market with 41% and followed by Python 31% of the job market. The other languages dominating the rest of the market are C# and C++, so we can see apart from Java and Python, C# and C++ languages are the best next option for developers to master and get highest salary jobs.

Dallas also has emerged the new technology hub in recent years. Companies like Apple, Uber, Texas Instrument (semiconductor), AT&T, Comerica bank, McAfee and many more are setting up base in and around Dallas, Texas.  The below Pie chart shows the most in-demand languages in Dallas, Texas.  Once again Java dominates with 49% with almost half of the region’s jobs, Python with 22% and C#,  C++ respectively with  17% and 11% of the job market.

So, the above graph and Pie chart attest to the fact that Java has been the most in demand programming language with maximum number of Jobs and appears to still retain its place presently and in the future.  If you are interested in knowing as to how SynergisticIT can help you achieve your career goals reach out to us .
