Demand for IoT talent surges 300% in 3 years

The demand for IoT (Internet of Things) talent has surged by 304%, between 2014 and 2017, with companies like Cisco, IBM, Intel and Qualcomm counting as top employers in the segment, according to a recent report.


The report by predictive outbound hiring solution Belong’s Talent Supply Index measures how competitive the market is for a given job by dividing the total number of people with relevant skills by the total number of active opportunities for that job.

According to the report, demand vastly outstrips supply for core AI, IoT and cloud talent. Managerial roles like engineering managers and Technology leads score a supply-negative 0.6 on the TSI, indicating companies will struggle to attract leadership talent and scale teams.
