Technology recruiting firm Dice's analysis of 6 million U.S. job postings last year found the single largest category of tech job openings advertised was that of software developer, while data engineering jobs saw the fastest growth in job postings.

Dice found 12% of all tech job listings in 2019 were for software developers, followed by network engineers and systems engineers.

Demand for data engineers rose 50% last year over 2018 levels, with Structured Query Language and the open source Kubernetes platform respectively representing the most in-demand and fastest-growing skills requested in job postings.

Nearly 20% of developer job postings specified familiarity with the Python programming language as a desired skill, as did 75% of data scientist listings and 64% of data engineer listings.
