Black man working on his system, with caption top ten tech skills



Thinking of going into tech but not sure what job you should take on… here’s a list of the Top Ten Tech jobs and recommendations on where you can learn them.


Tech jobs are booming. After a slight slowdown in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, companies are hiring for tech-based roles at rates never seen before. While across the board, demand for tech jobs is high, and that’s not expected to change, some job demand is more than others.

On top of high demand and comparatively high entry-level salaries, many people may not know that these tech jobs don’t require a degree or traditional education path. Anyone can become qualified for them simply by attending a Bootcamp, whether it’s in codingcybersecurity, or data science.

With that in mind, we wanted to find out which tech jobs are the most in demand for this year. To do this, we first had to define what a tech job is. It involves someone who is a technician and works on building and maintaining hardware, software, and other forms of tech development—this left off roles that exist in a tech ecosystem or simply are at a tech company, including people managers, data analysts, content production, finance, and so on.

Armed with that information, let’s look at the 10 most in-demand tech jobs in 2022.


  1. Information Security Engineer

Among all the tech fields that are growing, none are growing faster than cybersecurity. An information security engineer is a mid-to senior-level cybersecurity position that entails building and designing systems that provide security for a company’s network and software. Generally, information security engineers have multiple years of experience in cybersecurity and have an average annual salary of $118,000, according to Glassdoor.

To be an information security engineer, you should know about Linux, UNIX, and Java systems, as well as knowledge of software writing, SSL, SSH, and SIEM systems.

  1. Full-Stack Engineer

While software and web developers are always in demand, it’s clear that employers prefer to hire the most well-rounded coders they can.

That’s why, when learning to code, you should do all you can to learn multiple stacks instead of just one. While some engineering roles are separated by individual stacks, companies are looking for developers who can be flexible and cover different stacks when needed.

Whether you’re a new coder just starting or you’ve been programming for years but just know frontend or backend, now is the perfect time to start learning more stacks to increase your career and income potential.

Fortunately, Coding Dojo’s four coding boot camps give you the option to learn more or start as a full-stack engineer right out of the box.

  1. Data Scientist

The fact that the top three positions exist in different fields and require different skills further underscores the depth and breadth of opportunity the tech industry offers as a whole.

Data science is in its relative infancy and has no end to its possibilities as machine learning and artificial intelligence continue to be improved. In the early days, data scientists were largely expected to collect, organize, and display or present data. Today’s data scientists do all that plus use machine learning to analyze multiple different business decisions for companies.

Naturally, this makes it an incredibly beneficial and in-demand position for companies in a variety of industries.

Best of all, data science is something you can learn without a degree at Coding Dojo’s 16-week data science Bootcamp

Top ten tech jobs
  1. Machine Learning Engineer

Next up on the list is what many data scientists evolve into later in their careers. A machine learning engineer is a mid-to senior-level data scientist who focuses on the artificial intelligence and machine learning aspect of the job.

While many roles on this list can be considered entry-level, a machine learning engineer bucks that trend as one of the few senior positions with as much demand as others. Few tech avenues can claim so many available jobs so late in a career path.

Machine learning engineers will have a thorough knowledge of machine learning and will be able to work within several different data structures and environments.

  1. Java Developer

As we move down the list, many of the jobs become more specific in their purview. Naturally, jobs in the top spots are broader, but it speaks to the sheer demand for tech jobs that very specific roles like Java developer are in the top five.

Even after decades as one of the top web developer programming languages, Java still reigns supreme. That’s evidenced by Java topping our 2022 list of the most in-demand programming languages. Naturally, that demand carries over to this list.

  1. Data Engineer

Sensing a pattern here? Jobs in data are highly in demand and have no prospect of cooling off anytime soon. A data engineer is the third data-specific role to crack the top 10 list.

A data engineer is effectively the person who does the rest of the tasks that a machine learning engineer doesn’t do. A data engineer will make sure data is collected, organized, and funneling through to the right places. While a data engineer and machine learning engineer are more specialized, a data scientist is essentially a composite of the two jobs.

  1. Cloud Engineer

Cloud Engineering, is a role that will become increasingly prevalent as cloud-based systems and computing continue to dominate the tech space. Not long ago the cloud was a mystifying idea to many, but today it’s used almost everywhere and companies will need engineers to support it.

What does an engineer need to know to become a cloud engineer? Most companies use Linux for cloud development, so that’s a must. Ideal programming languages for a cloud engineer to know include MySQL, SWL, Java, Python, and plenty more. Knowledge of AWS is also very helpful.

  1. Backend Engineer

If you’re hoping to graduate from a coding Bootcamp, you’ll have the necessary skills to become a backend engineer. As mentioned above, companies are looking for well-rounded coders, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have specific engineering roles depending on the technology or industry.

Backend engineers spend their time in the nuts and bolts of a website or software, whether they’re building a new product from scratch or improving a legacy software, backend engineers are some of the most coveted computer programmers out there.

  1. Salesforce Engineer

It’s a testament to how popular Salesforce is as a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform that a job specifically to manage it is so in demand. It’s also a testament to how confusing and overwhelming Salesforce can be to the layperson, ie. the people who generally use the Salesforce frontend.

A Salesforce engineer will help companies build and improve Salesforce to specifically tailor it to their CRM needs. They can help integrate third-party apps and fix any bugs that will inevitably pop up. To become a Salesforce engineer, you should know Java or C#, while there’s also a special Salesforce language called Apex.

  1. Automation Engineer

The future of quality assurance (QA) in tech is automation. No. 10 on our list is the role of an automation engineer, who works across engineering teams to find problems and issues and fixes them through automation.

An automation engineer will look across a company’s engineering structure to find opportunities for automation, while also continuing to QA new tech shipments and upgrades. Automation engineers should have some knowledge of automation testing software, some of which include LambdaTest, Rainforest, and Cypress.
