Coding skills are in high demand

Seven million job openings in 2015 were in occupations which value coding skills. This corresponds to 20% of “career track” jobs, defined as those which pay a national living wage of at least $15/hour.

Coding Skills are Not Just for Programmers
Coding skills are of value to candidates across five major job categories:
• Information Technology (IT) workers
• Data Analysts
• Artists and Designers
• Engineers
• Scientists

Coding skills Provide an Avenue to High-Income Jobs
Half of jobs in the top income quartile (>$57,000 per year) are in occupations which commonly require coding skills from job applicants.

Coding Jobs Pay More
Jobs requiring coding skills pay $22,000 per year more than jobs that don’t: $84,000 vs $62,000 per year. (This analysis includes only “career track” jobs.)

Coding Jobs are Growing Faster than the Job Market
Programming jobs are growing fastest, 50% faster than the market overall. In general, programming jobs are growing 12% faster than the market average.


According to the study by Burning Glass Technologies and Oracle Academy (2016), "Beyond Point and Click - the Expanding Demand for Coding Skills" based on an analysis of millions of job postings across the United States.
