To know in depth the current situation of the technology market we have aligned ourselves with TalentUp, who are the best in data analysis on digital talent. And we have made a mess: We have made a complete report with data from Barcelona and Madrid, from salary ranges by type of employment to the most demanded positions. It sounds cool, and yes, here it is ✨.
In this article we advance you some of the most relevant data that we have detected from an analysis of more than 1.4 million professionals and 370 thousand offers during a period of time of one year. Seeing is believing 👇
A market with less supply of developers in Barcelona
One of the first data that catches the attention of the report, is the number of candidates available in each city. In Madrid there are more than eleven thousand (for almost six thousand open positions) and in Barcelona there are barely six thousand (for the same number of positions). In fact, there is a very similar number of companies with developer needs in both cities.
This implies a greater difficulty, in Barcelona, to find available developers. Luckily, since the Covid era, this problem can be solved with an increasingly common type of hiring: the full-remote. 💡
The highest paid positions
The report breaks down in great depth salary ranges by position type in each city. We want to highlight here which are the best paid positions in both cities.
In this order, in Madrid the three highest paid profiles are:
- Full-stack developer (62,6K €) 💸
- Android developer (60,3K €)
- Backend developer (58,9K €)
On the other hand, in Barcelona there is a slightly lower salary range than in the capital on average. The best paid profiles are:
- Data Engineer (58,8K €)💸
- Android developer (56,9K €)
- iOS developer (55,7K €)
The most demanded positions in Madrid and Barcelona
By calculating the number of available candidates vs. open positions according to each profile, we can find out which are the most demanded profiles at the moment in each city. That is, those that have more offers and fewer candidates available.
