JavaScript Developer – Organizations that have development teams structured between front-end and back-end teams are hiring technologists whose strengths lie in using various JavaScript libraries and frameworks to deliver more compelling user interfaces.

Node.js Developer – Node has quickly become one of the languages of choice for companies that are moving away from monolithic code bases and leveraging microservices for their web applications.

Cybersecurity Engineer – Because of the heavy emphasis on protecting data, companies are realizing how important it is to have skilled security professionals in the organization. They are now building out bespoke career paths in security to attract security professionals.
