Sitecore Developer Hiring Trends 2019

Sitecore remains one of the top leading Customer Experience Platforms (or CMS, DMS) globally and continues to grow as advances in machine learning and AI help improve customer experience and reduce costs.  It’s in an exciting market which has provided Sitecore with an increase of 35% in annual recurring revenue at the end of 2018 - but what does that mean for Sitecore developers?

We’re on the cusp of the release of version 9.2 which will bring:-

  • The collaboration of JSS and SXA along with the integration of Sitecore forms and a move away from Windows as a requirement for local development
  • Improvements to the new Sitecore host
  • Sitecore Install Assistance for XPO
  • Helix updates
  • Rainbow Library format for serialisation
  • Azure Search improvements (and the death of the Lucene Search engine)
  • Tracker improvements
  • Malicious bot detection
  • Reporting dashboard to include active personalisation

And with that release, there is likely to be a surge in demand for developers as companies upgrade their systems
