Being a coder is turning out to be a sound career option in the UAE
Dubai: Entry level salaries for coders are set to shoot past Dh15,000 a month levels as UAE organizations compete to pick out the best talent and track-record available in the market. If retail-focused businesses were the most active last year, it’s the banking and healthcare sectors that have their eyes on coders now.
Each new app or digital service launched by a bank in the UAE is feeding demand for computer programmers, with senior UAE Government sources saying that 100 coder jobs will be created a day. If in the past, organizations were outsourcing most of their tech development, many are now bringing these skills in-house to ensure a tighter grip on cyber security.
