Top Skills in Tech Job Searches
Indeed analyzed the fastest-growing terms used by job seekers when searching for tech jobs by comparing the growth of searches in the three months that ended November 1 from the year before.
Kubernetes, an open source cloud computing tool, had the fastest growth in job searches, with a 173% increase from last year. Magento, an open source ecommerce platform written in PHP, was the second-fastest-growing skill in tech job searches, up 116%. Job searches using Google’s Go programming language, Golang, went up 81% while Facebook’s React framework rose 61% this year.
Surprised by this list? Indeed notes, "A skill with a slowing growth rate in tech job searches, or even a slight absolute decline, isn’t necessarily losing its appeal. It could simply be that the skill has matured. It can still have a large overall share of searches. For instance, searches for 'IT' are growing slowly, but it is still one of the most common search terms for tech job seekers. Hadoop, AWS, R, Spark, and Tableau are all widely used tools and will likely continue to be so for some time. But in 2018 they are no longer among the “hot” skills for tech job seekers."
