5 Most In-Demand Tech Roles in 2022

The technology resourcing market has been through a huge amount of upheaval over the last two years thanks largely to the pandemic, and the situation isn’t likely to calm down in 2022.  Because the resourcing market is so volatile, it’s more important than ever to stay on top of the substantial changes and trends.

We are seeing digital transformation in organisations at an unprecedented rate. The events of the last two years have completely changed how businesses interact with their customers and each other, with much of the workforce requiring enhanced digital skills than at the start of 2020. It is not a surprise that the most in-demand tech jobs for 2022 are enablers of that accelerated digital transformation.

In this blog, we are examing the top 5 most in-demand tech roles in 2022:

Java Developer
Java developers create web applications, software, and programmes and they are involved throughout the entire development life cycle of a product. This role is always in high demand and the prediction is that plenty of companies will be hiring for this role in the new year.

The responsibilities of a Java developer will vary greatly depending on the company and specific position. Typical duties include designing, implementing, and maintaining Java applications, delivering high availability and performance, contributing in all phases of the development life cycle, writing well-designed, efficient, and testable code.

Cloud Architect
A cloud architect is an IT professional who is responsible for overseeing a company’s cloud computing strategy. This includes cloud adoption plans, cloud application design, and cloud management and monitoring. Often, Cloud Architects are also responsible for bridging the gaps between complex business problems and solutions in the cloud.

Necessary cloud architect skills will include experience with programming languages such as Python, Ruby, and Elixir, a background in IT engineering, and excellent leadership skills.

Product Manager
Product Managers oversee the development of projects from the planning stage right through to completion. Usually, they’re the glue that holds teams together and makes sure that everyone is on the right track. It’s a varied role and PMs will cover everything from supervising the task flow to holding regular meetings with staff to check-in on progress.

Successful product managers are intrinsically motivated — you are always looking for ways to improve, fill in the gaps in the organisation, and continually deliver a better product.

Cybersecurity Specialist
Cybersecurity is more important now than ever. Cybersecurity specialists are basically bodyguards that protect companies from attacks from hackers and customers from having their information stolen. Without a team of top IT security specialists, companies risk losing huge sums of money in data breaches and a headache from unhappy customers.

Cybersecurity specialists need problem-solving skills, knowledge of security across various platforms, great communication skills, and fundamental computer forensics skills.

Data Scientist
A data scientist’s job is to use machine learning to predict and analyze data. Specific tasks include things like identifying data-analytics problems, determining the correct data sets and variables, collecting large sets of data, and communicating findings to stakeholders. Data science is a growing field and one that is sure to continue to develop over the next few years.

To be eligible for this role, you’ll need to be familiar with statistical programming languages such as R, Python, and SLQ. You’ll also need to have knowledge of data mining techniques.
