Boston Web Tech Job Market | Q3 2013


Massachusetts continues to exhibit above average technology job growth.  In fact, only New Jersey has added a greater percentage of new technology jobs in the past year.  Details are available at The Dice Report.

Boston Web Tech Job Market


On a local level, the demand for Web tech professionals continues to be strong in the Boston metro area.

However...

Job demand did slow during the past three months.  This is not unexpected since the summer months are traditionally slower months for job creation.  It is likely that there will be a seasonal bounce over the next three months as employers refocus on getting back to work.

The list of Top 20 Web Technologies in Boston has been updated for the third quarter. It appears in the right-hand column and below.  The list is based on keyword searches in job postings at Indeed.com. The most in-demand keywords are listed more frequently than less in-demand keywords.

Indeed.com is a meta-search engine that offers a maximum number of search possibilities.  All searches encompass a 25-mile radius of Boston.  Search parameters can be adjusted to fit your personal needs.
