Recruitment agency Dice's Tech Jobs Report of third-quarter job listings suggests employers are eager to hire people "who understand the core concepts of software development and project management," and are skilled in Linux, Java, Python, and Structured Query Language (SQL).

Dice estimated SQL demand rose 5% between the second and third quarters, as companies still use SQL to manage datasets across business units.

Pandemic-fueled demand for digital services boosted interest in Java developers, while Python grows more popular within data science and artificial intelligence applications, and demand for Linux has dipped.

The Dice report observed, "Employers have been very public about their issues with securing the right kind of talent to fill open roles; there's clearly demand for technologists with particular skills, but perhaps not quite the same level as when businesses were first opening again."
