As more and more companies hire developers to design and develop software, HR professionals face significant challenges finding qualified professionals. A significant shortage of developers during a time of unprecedented demand is impacting the bottom line. According to a recent survey from Gartner, IT executives see the developer shortage as a barrier to nearly 65% of all emerging technologies:
“Talent availability is cited as a leading factor inhibiting adoption among all six technology domains included in the survey – compute infrastructure and platform services, network, security, digital workplace, IT automation and storage and database.”
Unsurprisingly, many HR professionals seek multi-talented professionals to perform several development functions. The term “full stack” is increasingly popular because it implies a varied skill-set. Full stack developers are often called the “Swiss army knife” of the development world, and a majority of developers now identify as full stack web developers (as opposed to “front end” or “back end” developers).
