In the same way, the need to exploit tools such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) , Big Data , Cognitive Computing and Machine Learning , has led to Artificial Intelligence (AI) Programmers to stand out among the professional profiles most sought after by the business, as mentioned by Cecilia Barrera , Human Resources Manager at Microsoft Mexico .
“One of the trends that has become more relevant is Artificial Intelligence. Today it is possible to see how, through this technology, companies are innovating in their production processes and operations, which is why a significant increase is being perceived in the demand for AI knowledge among technology professionals. Microsoft currently has 27 vacancies and, without a doubt, this and the Data Science and Programming roles, being jobs of the future, are constantly growing. “
Indeed, Artificial Intelligence turns out to be an excellent ally for companies . So when asked what is the growth expectation in AI programmer vacancies that they expect for the next 12 months, they all indicate that they have a growth projection of 100% to 200% . A forecast that shows a bright and promising future for Mexican talent specialized in this field of computing.
Faced with this digital boom , it is important to understand that technology is not created by magic, that is why having a qualified and dynamic team is essential for companies to innovate.
So does Agustín Cruz Lozano , General Director of OpenPyme , who maintains that “ technological projects have less and less to do with technology and more with people and processes. “
Recruitment media for programmers
Regarding the medium they use to publish job offers, most companies state that they make them known through LinkedIn , through agencies, job search pages such as OCC and CompuTrabajo , and from their own websites.
Also, brands such as NDS Cognitive Labs , OpenPyme and HPE have professional internship programs in conjunction with National Universities with the possibility of hiring in the future. Similarly, Microsoft has a program for young talents called Students and Graduates at Microsoft , while Pepsico offers Degreed .
And it is that in the country there are great and talented programmers and, as Gustavo Parés Arce , CEO of NDS Cognitive Labs expresses, “in front of us we have a unique opportunity to export specialized services, driven by young people to the United States, Europe and the world. ” In other words, Mexico is a hotbed of programmer talent for tech startups.
In conclusion, we can see that all the large companies in Mexico are already looking for programming talent to successfully migrate their business model to the current technology industry .
As a programmer, the best thing is that you continue training yourself to have the necessary knowledge and develop the skills required by emerging technologies, and thus be able to aspire to the technological and programming positions offered by the different companies that operate in the national territory.
