The dynamics of the growth of the IT labor market in Ukraine

Studies show that with the growth of scientific and technological progress, automation of labor is increasing. In order to get a job in the future, a person needs to develop new tools in a timely manner, seek out non-standard solutions, and work in the sphere where the creative and scientific approach is most valued. An engineer is probably one of the most sought after professions in the future. The largest IT companies in the world are already putting their programming strategies and engineering into their strategies.

Answering the numerous questions of students and their parents, we have collected some information about positions and approximate salaries for these areas.

    Developers/Engineers (software - SW, hardware - HW Developer or Engineer). Within this directions there are positions such as junior (Junior), lead (Middle), senior engineers (Senior), project managers (Principal).

    Junior Engineers - Senior students (since III year of education) of leading technical universities in SW, IT, ACS specialties.

    Programmers and software engineers - experts, who constitute the majority of the staff of any software developing company. Except developers, there are business analysts who also participate in the process of designing and have nothing in common with system. Business analysts are engaged in gathering and formulation of requirements relevant to particular software. There are also quality assurance engineers (QA Engineers – testers). Generally there are 5 quality assurance engineers on 10 software developers. Such a specialist is usually a graduate of a technical university with work experience about 3-5 years.
