Python for Decision Makers and Business Leaders Transcripts
Chapter: Hiring and jobs in the Python space
Lecture: Python jobs according to Stackoverflow Careers
0:00 Let's round out this chapter
0:01 by coming back to an old friend, Stack Overflow.
0:03 We saw Stack Overflow has that cool graphs
0:06 about languages and demand interest
0:08 in just interacting with languages.
0:10 They also have this thing called Stack Overflow Careers
0:13 and if you go there, you can ask how many jobs you have
0:16 that are Java jobs or Python jobs or Rust.
0:19 This graph looks surprisingly different
0:22 compared to Indeed, but you know, that's fine.
0:24 Multiple data sources give you more perspective.
0:28 It surprised me how low .NET was
0:30 on the Stack Overflow Careers.
0:32 Right now, there's 253 open positions there.
0:34 I kind of expected it to be higher
0:36 because Stack Overflow originated
0:38 as almost a pure C# .NET space.
0:41 Whatever, make whatever out of that whatever you want.
0:44 Then we have C++ is a little bit higher this time
0:47 instead of lower than .NET.
0:49 Over in Java, we have Java winning the race here.
0:52 Java's over a thousand.
0:54 But Python, while not beating Java this time
0:56 you know, it's still kind of neck and neck.
0:58 It's up there with Java.
1:00 And then Rust, yeah, Rust is even less represented here.
1:03 I think, for example, there's 80 times
1:06 the number of Python jobs instead of just 50.
1:08 Either way, Rust is way, way, way down there.
1:11 What do you think?
1:12 What do you make of these numbers?
1:13 Certainly there's two major takeaways here
1:15 that I think are clear.
1:17 There are many, many Python jobs available
1:20 and that probably means
1:21 there are many, many Python developers out there.
1:24 Second, Python developers are paid pretty well.
1:27 When we compared it against all those different languages
1:28 on Indeed, they were at least comparable
1:30 if not even a little bit higher than all of the others.
1:34 That's the Python job and hiring space.
