What does the web market look like?

October 28, 2014 | By Lloyd Berry

The Melbourne web community, what does it look like at the moment?

A bit of a philosophical question perhaps, but we thought we’d give it a go, and figure out what you guys are looking for at the moment. Using a word visualisation tool from Stanford University, we plugged in the roles that you’ve asked us to fill in October and lo and behold, you guys want a lot of Senior UX Designers!

For those who haven’t seen these before – the larger words are the ones that come up a lot, and the smaller ones are the more occasional ones.

The first cloud shows what we’re being asked to fill at the moment. 2014’s graphic is dominated by requests for Designers, demonstrating businesses growing emphasis on creating gorgeous looking sites.

The second shows what we were being asked to fill in October 2013. Back then there was a bit more emphasis on development, particularly for seasoned back-end developers.

The third shows our favourite swear words.

Until next week!
