In this dynamic world where everything changes at a rapid rate, the popularity of Python never seems to cease. Today, Python Certification is one of the most sought-after skills in the entire programming domain. But have you ever wondered if it is really worth it? If yes, where can it take you? Apart from these, there are few other questions which might be bothering you. In this article, I would be answering all such questions regarding Python Career Opportunities and the growth it gifts you.

Python, as a programming language is easy and simple to learn. Python cuts development time in half with its simple to read syntax and easy compilation feature. Also, it has plenty of libraries that support data analysis, manipulation and visualization. Therefore, it has evolved as the most preferred language and considered to be the “Next Big Thing” and a “Must” for Professionals. Today, we will discuss various Python career opportunities available for a Python programmer.

Python Career Opportunities

Inclination towards being curious and hands-on is desired as Python demands that we get our hands dirty and like to fiddle around the system for errors and other issues.

In an independent 3rd party survey, it has been found that the Python programming language is currently the most popular language for Data Scientists worldwide. This claim is substantiated by IEEE, which tracks programming languages by popularity. According to them, Python tops the list of the most popular programming languages in 2018. Not only this, Python is finding its application in diverse domains, as illustrated below.

In India and other countries of the world, an alarming skill-gap is making enterprises look at talent from more expensive countries. A recent article in Times of India states: “One of India’s top software companies was faced with a tough situation”. It had won a $200 million (Rs. 1,200 crores) contract to develop an app store for a large US bank, but did not have adequate numbers of programmers who could write code in Python, the language most suited for the job. Eventually, it paid thrice the billing rate to a group of freelance Python programmers in the USA and learned a valuable lesson about the importance of a language named after the British television comedy series “Monty Python!

Thankfully, this is changing now, with developers realizing the need to add Python to their resumes, both for faster programming and lucrative global careers.

It is quite impressive that 41 large organizations in the world have adopted Python as their primary programming language in a very small span of time. Some of the big players like Quora, Facebook, YouTube, SlideShare, Dropbox, Pinterest, Reddit, and Netflix have most of their new code written in Python. It is an open secret in the developer world that Google has now adopted Python as its secondary coding language, and has committed to using it more in its new product offerings.

Edureka has specially curated a course aimed at helping developers master the Python language. The live and interactive course that is co-created by industry practitioners, covers critical aspects of Python such as integration of machine learning, Hadoop, and Web Scraping, among others.

    How it will help me to improve my Career Graph without affecting my economical graph?
    I am asking this because if I will change my platform then I have to start from the beginning

  • It’s very good.
    You have to write that how to start this program without going in computer courses .
    What is required to strat this programming language in our home computer?
    Can we learn it by online videos ???

    • Hey Abdul, thanks for the compliment. Do browse through our other blogs and stay tuned for more updates. Cheers!

  • hi
    i am a student of class 11

  • Hello, I work on SAS tools from 4 years, now have a plan to add extra miles to my strength, Hence please suggest which course would be an added advantage for me? Such as R, Python with django, Tableau

  • HI,
    Just wants a advice from you guys. Which has better career or future- python with web development or machine learning.
    Because both seems to be learn-able. And please give a detailed explanation why to and why not to.

  • Hi ,
    Can you please suggest what technologies should one learn as a package for these job profiles along with python,
    Software Engineer
    Research Analyst
    Data Analyst
    Data Scientist
    Software Developer
    for eg, for a data scientist, Python, Hadoop, SPARK, R, SQL, are a set i guess, similarly can u recommend a list for all the job roles listed above.

    • Hey Madhavi,
      Research analyst job profiles generally is very industry specific when it comes to skill set required.
      For Data Analyst, you need to learn R – Data manipulation and visualization with R, Data mining andLinear/Logistic regression.
      Data Scientist – As mentioned Pyhon, Hadoop, Spark, Scala alng with R are necessary.
      Software developer and Engineer are again a vast job profile. You need to be industry specific. But, in general you need to be well versed in OOPs concept and other similar programming languages. So, basically having a good overview of basic software is enough. The specific software and techniques used varies from company to company. So, in developers and engineer having sound knowledge of the basics is more important.
      Hope this helps :)
