25 hottest skills of 2013 – according to LinkedIn

Doing quite a bit of research into ramping up my team to be the best software engineering team in the entire Caribbean and there are quite a number of interesting facts and tidbits that I’m coming across.

Here’s one that I found this morning – LinkedIn published a list that tried to answer a simple question –

Who’s getting hired and what are they doing?

Based on some analysis of their ~259 Million member profiles they came up with the following list:


Here are the top 10:

  1. Social Media Marketing
  2. Mobile Development
  3. Cloud and Distributed Computing
  4. Perl/Python/Ruby
  5. Statistical Analysis
  6. User Interface Design
  7. Digital and Online Marketing
  8. Recruiting
  9. Business Development / Relationship Management
  10. Retail Payment and Information Systems

…  Now isn’t that interesting?

Developers, we’re lower down on the list. Check it out yourself. For me this does mean that there are a number of things that I now have to ramp my team (including myself and the wider company team) up on.

Are you in the Top 10? 🙂

Hope that this was useful! – Cheers
