CyberCoders analyzed more than 10,000 tech companies and their hiring requirements to compile the list of the hottest skills in the tech space. Data from CyberCoders reveals that candidates who have experience with iOS development, cloud computing programming and front-end development skills are most in demand in today’s tech career landscape.

CyberCoders Top Ten Tech Skills for 2013

  1. Mobile Development (iOS, Android)
  2. Cloud Computing (AWS, Azure)
  3. Front End Development (HTML5, CSS3, Javascript)
  4. UX/UI Design
  5. Big Data (Hadoop, MongoDB, NoSQL)
  6. C#
  7. Ruby on Rails
  8. Java
  9. PHP
  10. Linux

“A common theme among these technology skills is the need for open source, mobile, cloud or big data technologies, like iOS, Azure and Hadoop,” says Matt Miller CTO of CyberCoders.

“Everyday we see the engineers with these skills getting an average of four to five job offers,” says CEO and Founder of CyberCoders, Heidi Golledge. “Companies that provide cutting edge technology, great salaries and a positive company culture, will have a better chance at getting the tech candidates they need to compete in the ever changing social, data and mobile workplace,” says Golledge.

Front-end development for mobile applications and websites remains a top priority for companies. Developers who are coding with some of the new mobile optimized languages such as CSS3 and HTML5 are vital to tech companies that are looking to build content-rich pages with relatively light code.

UX/UI designers are in strong demand as companies appreciate the importance for creating compelling and engaging user experiences – these experiences result in an engaged and returning user base.

iOS and Android development remains one of the most in demand skills in technology. As more and more companies see the necessity to have a presence on native mobile apps, like iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android. Anyone looking to have a presence on these devices, or distribution in Apple’s AppStore needs to be able to develop for iOS.

“This is an incredible time for those who have tech skills or are willing to learn them. Unlike the dot-com bubble of the last decade, our need for continually improving technology is constant due to our improved processes and every day enjoyment of our smart phones and big data,” says Golledge.

    Interesting read. I’m currently recruiting on roles involving each of the top five skills. I agree that these are crucial skill sets, with mobile dev and cloud computing folks being the toughest to find.
