10 top companies hiring coders right now

20 Oct 2016

We hear more and more about how important coding skills are becoming. But what jobs can coders get, and who’s hiring?

We’re essentially slap-bang in the middle of Europe Code Week. Since Monday (17 October), we at have been looking at coding from a number of angles.

A big focus of our coverage has been on the learning of coding skills, and why it’s essential that more people get a grounding in code.

But what kinds of jobs can arise from a background in coding? Well, coders can head into careers in software development, app development, programming, data science and a host of other areas you might not immediately think of.

Certain roles in marketing, UI and UX, research, and white-hat hacking also involve coding.

But for coders, knowing the roles is one thing – finding one is quite another.

While there’s no shortage of coding-related jobs in the ever-expanding tech careers sphere, it can be challenging to wade through the myriad opportunities to find ones that match your skill set.
