Online employment marketplace Hired's 2022 State of Software Engineers report assessed the most popular skills and wages, analyzing roughly 366,000 interactions between companies and software engineers and surveying another 2,000-plus engineers.

Hired found mounting cyberattacks last year raised demand for security engineers, which pushed their average salary 7.59% over 2020 levels.

Engineers with Go coding skills garnered 1.8 times as many interview requests as the average software engineer did, while Python and JavaScript were their favorite languages, cited by respondents for useful and well-maintained libraries and packages.

Average salaries for Silicon Valley-based software engineers rose 2% in 2021 to $170,000 annually, and those for remote-working Bay Area engineers increased to $168,000.
