Technology Trends in 2018

Posted by Red Tree on 27/11/18 in In The News

With 2018 drawing to a close, Ireland’s technology sector has gone from strength to strength and 2019 is set to be no different.

With Brexit on the horizon, Ireland has been the country of choice for many technology companies looking to base their EMEA HQ.

This has also sparked an influx of skilled tech people from the UK playing with the idea of relocating to Ireland. Will this be an influential factor in driving the technology market to the next level? I believe so!

Now to GDPR

Yes, I said it! The fact is we have all seen it, heard it, on each and every website, received countless emails and the list goes on, but has this been a key factor in companies trying to utilise their data?

Aside from Brexit and GDPR, the start-up scene here in Ireland is booming. Creating a vast range of diverse and technical environments that are attracting top talent from around the globe.

Current market trends are showing that candidates with the following skills will be in high demand in 2019:

  • Data Science
  • Machine Learning Engineers
  • NLP Engineers
  • AI Engineers
  • Data Analytics
  • Software engineers

There has never been a better time to check your options on the technology market- salaries are increasing, technologies are improving, environments are becoming more challenging, and experience is becoming more valuable than ever.
