What Are My Work Opportunities When I Learn Python?
Having difficulty choosing a programming language to learn? The following jobs are some which you can apply to sooner rather later when you opt to train in Python first
Although created in the 1990s, Python continues to be a popular coding language. While there are now hundreds of existing programming languages for programmers and the companies they work for to choose from, almost all have played into the hands of Python.
It is a comparatively simple and clear programming language, a key reason why, according to global business data platform Statista, it is used by over 40-percent of developers worldwide. It covers several platforms and functions, and its usage is not limited to one area, be it web development, native applications, or gaming. Python is also famous for its constant evolution, serving as a coding language that is in full accordance with the quickly changing technology landscape.
Indeed, Python is among the most ideal programming languages to learn when wanting to upskill your career and the following are some of the roles you can qualify for as you develop your Python skills.
Of course, Python Developer is the most obvious role for anyone who knows or learns the Python programming language. Among the many responsibilities of a Python Developer are:
Address data analytics problems
Develop reusable, testable and efficient code
Implement security and data protection
Optimize data algorithms
A number of Python Developer opportunities are presently listed on Kalibrr by companies from various industries. These include Hunter's Hub Inc., Spectrum One IT Solutions Corp., and ZenRooms, among others.
Thanks in large to how most businesses have gone digital, so too have the demand for Data Analysts. There is a saying that “data is the new oil” as the professional analysis of data provides companies with industry/market insight which will help them make key business decisions and assist in the development of new products or services.
If finding meaning through large quantities of data appeals to you as a career, high-profile companies such as Aboitiz Power Corporation, ABS-CBN, and Robinsons Retail are presently offering opportunities to professionals who sift through large sets of data– and among the many methods of doing so is by using Python libraries such as SciPy and Pandas.
Product Managers are responsible for guiding the success of a product and leading the cross-functional team that is responsible for improving it. Particularly key in technology companies, they set the strategy, roadmap, and feature definition for a product or product line.
According to William Gill, former Product Director for Rocket Internet and former Head of Product for Nokia, knowing Python will seemingly serve Product Managers well: “Growth Product Managers and Growth ‘Hackers’ should learn to code Python: it saves time by automating reporting and analysis, and it will make you a little less dependent on your data science team and a little more confident to go looking through your analytics data yourself.”
If keen on a role that involves communicating with users and crunching numbers, becoming a Product Manager may be right up your alley, and companies such as Edukasyon.ph, Maria Health, and even us here at Kalibrr are presently on the lookout for Product Managers with Python skills.
In order for the demand for professionals with proficiency in the Python programming language to be met is the need for it to be taught extensively. While you don’t have to pursue a full-time computer science teaching role, learning and continued mastery of Python at least ensures that you have teaching and training opportunities awaiting you.
Universities, companies hosting boot camps, and online coding tutoring platforms are often in need of professionals with extensive Python experience who are also open to teaching it. Among those providing such an opportunity at present are IT companies eCloudvalley and Trends Group, Inc.
Indeed, Python is no longer just for computer programmers. Companies such as Citigroup began training their bank analysts to learn it, and it has also given rise to roles such as Data Journalism, a specialty within journalism where data is used to tell stories. Clearly, Python will be around for a while and learning it can help greatly in career expansion.
