Tech skills - comparison across cities

Recommended Posts

Andy Milner

Here is a really interesting breakdown from Stack Overflow that shows the most in use (or at least talked about) technologies across 4 different cities - London, New York, San Francisco and Bangalore.

 

It shows that in New York, and in particular London, skills on Microsoft platforms are a lot more dominant - presumably because of their association with Financial Services.

 

Thanks to @Ruben Lara for sharing this with me.

When I tell someone Stack Overflow is based in New York City, they’re often surprised: many people assume it’s in San Francisco. (I’ve even seen job applications with “I’m in New York, but willing to relocate to San...

      Really interesting article from HRB on whether Men and Women needed different kinds of networks to succeed following a study on the networks of male and female MBAs suggests that males being successful in the workforce was largely dependent on being active in a social network where as women often also sough an 'inner circle' in addition to a broader network. 
       
      Would be great to hear what our MBS/MSc members think?

      Last week was our inaugural panel session for Cass Business School where we gathered some really interesting people together to talk about the future of work in our sector. 
       
      We have mainly grown online since we launched AlgoMe Community, so it was a great experience to extend into the real world and meet students who are at the beginning of their careers and others who are already well into them, and on a path to pushing themselves further. Attending were current MBA and MSc students and alumni of Cass, and we were delighted to see such a diverse and engaged audience. We hope most, if not all, of them are now actively participating in our community. If you’re registered as a mentor, you might start receiving a few more requests.
       

       
      The purpose of the evening was to talk about the Impacts of FinTech to careers in Investment Management and marry up the insights and views of the panel with our audience and also to get a feel for what the next generation of investment management professionals had set in their sights. 
       
      To do this, we shared some of the early findings from our FinTech, Investment Management and future careers Survey (we will be releasing this shortly and doing a follow up article in the community too). This allowed us to create a truly interactive debate as we put the same questions to our audience. They were then able to give feedback via the AlgoMe Community app in real-time (and thankfully it all worked beautifully without a glitch too).
       
      The key questions we wanted to hear the views of the audience and panel on were:

      -    Are career paths less well defined due to the changes happening in the industry?
      -    What skills will be the most important to develop careers in Investment Management?
      -    Will FinTech and Innovation be positive or negative for future careers?
      -    What are the most important things to do to be successful?
       

       
      There was a general feeling both Investment and Asset Management are ripe for disruption and there as an opportunity and threat of this coming from the outside due to the slow adoption of new technologies by the industry. This led into a discussion about technology skills and a skills gap. There was consensus among the panel about career paths not being too rigid, applying skillsets to new challenges can be a highly successful strategy and also advice to 'follow the good people'. 
       
      Then panel consisted of Rob Carter (CEO, AlgoMe),  Ruben Lara, Chief Data Office, Standard Life Aberdeen, and Olivia Vinden, FinTech and Innovation Practice lead at Alpha FMC. Both Ruben and Olivia are members of the Advisory Panel for Velocity, the FinTech accelerator of the Investment Association, so their excellent insight into the way that FinTech is reshaping the Industry was extremely useful, and of course credible.  Luuk Jacobs chaired the panel, he is co-founder of AlgoMe and AlgoMe Consulting. Each panellist was able to share their unique views of the industry and Fintech and offer career tips too. We’ve had some excellent feedback from the audience about this as well.
       
      We are looking forward to an ongoing programme of panels and events over the coming months. If you would like to hold something similar with us at your place of work, we are happy to develop this with you as a breakfast, lunch session or evening event – please get in touch with any of the AlgoMe Community team for more info.
