IT vacancies increased by 65% in 2021

Year after year, the IT job market has been expanding and even the coronavirus pandemic hasn’t caused any disturbances on it. Because of volume of business, the supply of IT jobs is growing rapidly. On the other hand, there is still a shortage of workforce, as shown by new data from the website.

According to the latest data, last year there was an increase in the number of jobs compared to 2020 by up to 65%. “In other words, in 2021, about 11,500 IT vacancies were posted on our site, compared to just under 7,000 job ads in 2020,” says the site.

It adds that the increased number of advertised vacancies led to an increase in the number of applications too, i.e. 25% more in 2021 compared to 2020. Despite this trend, there is still a deficit of IT staff on the Serbian labour market.

As far as job requirements go, employers were mainly looking for IT personnel who knew the following programming languages: JavaScript and related frameworks (React, Node, Angular), SQL, Java, Python, C#, .NET, PHP and related frameworks Symphonies, Laravel) and C++. As a result, in 2021, employers have often advertised the following positions: JavaScript developer, Java developer, help desk/IT support, .NET developer, system administrator/engineer, front-end developer, and PHP developer.

Although we often hear that IT seniors are very rare, the data shows that the majority of ads, more than two-thirds, were for candidates who have 2 to 5 years of work experience and know certain technologies. Employers ran only 1/4 of the ads for “seniors,” while the fewest ads, only one in ten, were for “juniors.”
