  Migrations to cloud took place on a greater scale than ever before and put even greater focus on the end user experience. As business leaders now devise their long-term digital strategy, you could find your development team will need to be augmented alongside investment in areas like AI and Natural Language Programming.

Your software development questions, answered

What are the biggest software development trends in 2021?

Cloud-native engineers continue to be in short supply but high demand as organisations of all sizes across the world adopt cloud at speed. Investment in AI is continuously growing as organisations want to make use of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing.
 
This means more developers will be needed to build AI functionality into software applications. Further developments in the use of VR, AR and MR will also create a need for more development expertise in these areas.

Which software development technologies are in high demand?

Competition remains high for Java and JavaScript engineers, and employers are also snapping up developers with experience in Python. Full-stack developers are especially prized by employers.
 
Requirements for those with expertise in cloud-based technologies and DevOps has seen exponential growth in recent months, causing demand for AWS, Docker, Kubernetes and GCP skills to continue to rise across several areas.

What soft skills should I look for in a software developer?

Software developers today often need to be more than just literate with multiple programming languages. As the development landscape becomes even more complex, look out for those with evidence of good problem-solving skills who will be well suited to assess an issue and choose the best solution.
 
Strong communication skills are a must-have to allow a developer to have the most impact when suggesting viable technical solutions to business needs. Creativity is another useful trait that allows innovation to flourish.

What salaries should I expect to pay for talented software developers?

The breadth of his knowledge and experience as a developer obviously has an impact on his salary. Junior developers can generally expect a salary of around €35,000 to €40,000 annually while senior developers average between €42,000 and €60,000. Technical leaders can receive salaries of up to €75,000 and development managers up to €85,000.
 
Average daily service rates will also vary. A junior web developer in service can generally earn €450, a junior front-end developer €430 per day and a junior Microsoft/Java/Opensource developer €450 per day. A senior front-end developer will earn around €640 per day and a fullstack developer up to €570. Lead devs in service can earn up to €650 per day.
 

Aside from a good salary, what can I do to attract top software developers?

The real factor that can help your organisation to stand out from the competition is being able to prove your investment in upskilling. It’s obvious how much the software development landscape is evolving and a technology or language that’s currently popular may soon become obsolete.
 
Showcase your commitment to supporting an individual’s development either through investment in training using platforms, or an LMS like Hays Thrive, offering time off for upskilling or the opportunity to get involved with different project teams to broaden their skillset.
