Hiring Demand for Mobile Skills Remains Strong

New York, NY (PRWEB) November 01, 2011

Over the past 90 days, more than 42,000 new job ads have been placed online for Computer Specialists and Programmers with mobile application and development skills, according to WANTED Analytics (http://www.wantedanalytics.com), the leading source of real-time business intelligence for the talent marketplace. The ad volume for these skills increased more than 50% compared to the same 90-day period in 2010. After hiring slowed in June and July, demand for Programmers with mobile development skills bounced back with more than 17,000 online job ads in September. As mobile banking, mobile commerce and mobile gaming gain in popularity, this growing hiring demand signals that businesses recognize the need to connect with customers through mobile applications.

Some of the most commonly advertised Computer Programming job titles that require mobile skills include Software Engineer, Web Developer, Project Manager, Systems Administrator or Engineer, iPhone Developer, and Java Developer. Metropolitan areas with the highest hiring demand for mobile programmers during this 90-day period were New York, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, and Washington, DC. Employers and staffing firms within New York placed more than 4,200 new online job ads in the past 90 days, the most of any city at a 56% year-over-year increase. However, of these five locations with the highest demand, San Francisco experienced the highest growth from last year, up more than 80%. The national average salary for Programmers with mobile development skills is between $ 91,800 and $ 106,000.

An increasing volume of job ads for a limited talent supply has caused moderately challenging recruiting conditions, with each location experiencing varying degrees of difficulty. Of the five cities with the highest volume of job ads, Recruiters in San Francisco are likely to find these jobs the hardest to fill. According to the Hiring Scale, the talent pool in the San Francisco area is slightly smaller than average, meaning that Recruiters will need to compete more heavily to source talent for open positions and will likely see increase time-to-fill and cost-per-hire. In addition, the Hiring Scale shows that the easiest places to recruit for these occupations are Columbus, GA and Champaign-Urbana, IL.

The Hiring Scale measures conditions in local job markets by comparing hiring demand and labor supply. The Hiring Scale is part of the WANTED Analytics platform that offers business intelligence for the talent marketplace.

ZeroTurnaround joins Eclipse Foundation, releases JRebel for Eclipse

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 1, 2011

ZeroTurnaround, creators of java tooling for development and production environments, today announced both that it has become an official member of the Eclipse Foundation, and todays release of JRebel 3.6 includes support for the Eclipse Marketplace.

For years, weve seen the work that the Eclipse Foundation does to support the community, and weve always wanted to contribute, stated ZeroTurnarounds CEO, David Booth, With ZeroTurnarounds 2010 revenues growing nearly 300% Y/Y, were in a position where we can offer financial support to the cause. Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation, added, “We’re proud of all our Eclipse Foundation members. Developer tools like JRebel are great products to help Eclipse users be more productive, and valuable additions to the Eclipse ecosystem.”

JRebel is a productivity tool for Java developers that maps the project workspace directly to a running application. When a developer makes a change to any class or resource in their IDE the change is immediately reflected in the application, skipping the build and redeploy phases. Imagine a situation where you have to restart your computer every time you want to check or send an email, in order for your mail client to do its job thats similar to the pain that JRebel solves for Java developers, though it has nothing to do with emails, explains Mr. Booth, Every time a developer makes a change to the application hes working on, whether its a bug fix or adding a new feature, he has to redeploy that code to an application server, restart the app, navigate to the place where he made the change, and ensure that it works correctly. This whole process consumes 2-3 minutes on average, and occurs as often as a computer-focused business person checks or sends emails. JRebel eliminates that problem. Among other new features, JRebels 3.6 release provides easy access, installation, and configuration for Eclipse users.

Todays release of JRebel can be found in the Eclipse Marketplace, or you can go to http://www.zeroturnaround.com/jrebel/eclipse-eval/ to get a free 30-day license key and more detailed download instructions.
