The demand for software engineers is on the rise and many companies are advertising new roles daily to expand their team in light of accelerating technological advancements.

The need for software engineers is fueled by several factors which include the rapid growth of technology, digital transformation across industries, the shortage of skilled professionals, and the need for innovative solutions in a constantly evolving field.

As a result, there remains a skills shortage of available software engineering talent, with Deloitte’s 2023 Global Technology Leadership Study finding that 87% of employers surveyed say they are struggling to hire and retain the tech talent they need most.

The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) also reports that it expects employment for software developers, quality assurance analysts, and testers to grow by 25 percent by 2031. This represents a significantly higher projected growth than the average for all occupations.

Despite worries about the rise of generative AI and automation, a McKinsey study found that while one in 16 workers may have to switch occupations by 2030, crucially, new job growth will tend to concentrate on high-skill jobs such as science, technology, engineering, and math [STEM] fields.

That’s good news for those working in software development. While it is likely that parts of your job function may well be given over to automation such as debugging, identifying patterns, or generating rudimentary code, that leaves developers and engineers free for deeper, more complex tasks.

And there are other factors contributing to the rise of software developers and engineering roles too. Beyond technological advancements and digital transformation, the overall growth of the tech industry is also contributing. According to the BLS, employment in computer and IT occupations is projected to grow 13% up to 2030, and these occupations look set to add about 667,600 new jobs.

The rise of remote working too, means that for many companies, expertise is no longer location-specific, widening the pool of talent.

A Deloitte study found that software engineering professionals can not only pick and choose their employer, but they can also dictate terms when it comes to work location and flexibility around hours too.

It found that 52 percent of tech talent prefer a remote-first working model, and 46% said they would leave their current role if their employer stopped offering the flexibility to work remotely.

Software development is also an ever-evolving field, with new technologies, frameworks, programming languages, and job types emerging regularly.
