Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things has become something of a buzzphrase in recent times, but what’s is it referring to?

IoT describes the interconnection of your computing devices that can be configured to send and receive data. Some very obvious examples of IoT technology are wearable tech, such as smartwatches or headphones.

However, as technology increasingly becomes more integrated into our lives, technology such as washing machines, coffee makers, and even toothbrushes are now adopting this technology.

App Development

Can you remember a time without smartphones?  Studies suggest that if you are under 25, you might spend between 4-5 hours each day on your smartphone!

With businesses launching mobile-friendly platforms and relying on these to reach a younger audience, there has been a great surge in demand for app developers. Whether enhancing an existing application or developing a new one, businesses need app developers!

UI/UX Design

When UI/UX design is mentioned, the automatic response is similar to the previous point – website or app development. However, with more organisations switching to a remote work environment, online communication channels and websites have become one of the most integral parts of any business.

Companies are hiring UI/UX designers to ensure that they have an easy and intuitive interface for their employees, as well as their clients, which will help them manage hybrid and remote working in the future.

Data Science

Data Science has seen one of the biggest growths of all tech careers.  According to some studies, the demand for Data Scientists has almost doubled since 2020 with sectors such as healthcare, banking and telecommunications having the biggest demand.

The explosion of digital means there is an abundance of incoming data.

Companies need experts who can manage and optimize this data as well as offer insights that will increase revenue and profitability.

Interesting, impactful and well-paid, a career in data ticks all the boxes.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning Engineer

The shift towards automated tech services is arriving fast. Machine learning engineers use big data to create complex algorithms to ultimately program a machine to perform and carry out tasks like a human.

Perhaps the most famous example of AI and ML is Elon Musk’s self-driving cars. However, you may be surprised how much AI is integrated into our lives – such as chatbots and personalised adverts. Economic forecasting, image recognition, and natural language processing are all elements of AI and ML so that the machine can learn and improve without human interference.

Legacy sectors such as the legal and financial services are transforming how they work thanks to Generative AI and LLM. Tech careers within these sorts of institutions are booming and are fast becoming THE tech jobs of the future.
