Due to the covid pandemic taking over the world, most of the working world has begun to take on the remote-working trend. Most companies have been struggling and rushing to find a working remote strategy as the pandemic has shut offices across the world.

With that being said, the tech industry has been using remote-working for a while and it has caught fire over the past decade. The demand for services needed to support these remote teams has grown a lot and as a result, the tech industry continues to boom even during the worldwide pandemic.

Remote work has lowered overhead costs for Silicon Valley-based tech companies. Silicon Valley as well as the greater San Francisco Bay area, have boasted about the highest cost of living in the United States. Tech companies that are based in this area are paying for tech professionals, such as Full Stack Developers, over 30% of the national average per year, according to ZipRecruter.

Secondary tech hubs have begun to sprout up across the country due to the extreme cost of living. The new tech hotspots have emerged as remote recruiting hotbeds for top tech talents. Bay Area-based companies have been able to recruit people for their companies through these secondary tech centers which include cities like Seattle, Atlanta, Astin, Denver as well as Chicago. The new recruits cost less than the recruits chosen from the local Silicon Valley talent pool.

The average European full-stack for a Ruby programmer salary is between $4,400 and $10,000 and it varies depending on experience.  Within the European Union, the highest full-stack developer salaries can be found in Denmark and Sweden.

Coding bootcamps are trending and have helped give rise to these secondary tech centers.

Coding Bootcamps

 These bootcamps have fostered the creation of the secondary tech centers away from the long-standing tech hubs of New York and San Francisco. Coding bootcamps are short-term, intensive programs that are going to help young people as well as professionals who are eyeing a career change as well as helps them break into the tech industry.

Due to the short-term nature of these coding bootcamps, students have all the necessary coding skills it takes to succeed in the tech industry without the additional irrelevant material that is common with academic degrees.

With online and self-paced options offered through schools such as Kenzie Academy, the students can finish the course in as little as 10-24 weeks.

Full Stack Development

We have noticed that one of the fastest-growing remote careers is Full Stack Development. Full Stack refers to the programming professionals that build both the Front End Web Design of the user experience as well as the Back End Web Development of the user interface which powers the website.

More companies are continuing to switch their marketing efforts to digital outlets which means that the demand from skilled web development professionals can only grow. This means that many companies are trying to cut costs due to the pandemic and they would rather hire one Full Stack Developer, or a small team of these web developing professionals instead of both a Web Designer as well as a Web Developer. Make sure that you become equipped with the right skills to ensure that you get chosen by using the bootcamps.
