Career options for the technology-obsessed
In this day and age, technology is embedded in our everyday life. The internet has become a life necessity and not just for entertainment. Most work tasks have become digitized. Smartphones have become indispensable. So unless you’re spending the entire day doing absolutely nothing, it’s kind of impossible to avoid technology.
While most of us cannot deny the role of technology in every little task that we undertake, some of us look at technology with googly eyes. Those of us who have a great affinity for technology immerse themselves in that world, following all news of technology advancements no matter what field it is connected to. Whether it’s a medical advancement or a consumer product launch, tech-fans are always keen to find new ways to utilize technology for improving the life of the average person. For those who are obsessed with technology and want to pursue IT careers, we have compiled a list of jobs that are available on Bayt.com, the Middle East’s #1 Job Site, and will satisfy your love for everything tech-based.
1. App Developer
When was the last time you met someone who does not carry a smartphone? You probably will remember them well, as such people are now considered the rarity. The world of smartphones has created its own platform for apps to flourish, and many companies are jumping on this wagon. This means that the need for app developers is skyrocketing. If you’re into making mobile experiences, this is the path you should be going for.
2. Security Engineer
Just because time has progressed doesn’t mean that the cyber world has become safer. In fact, ever since the world had become interconnected, hackers have had “easier” access to sensitive information. And since everything is becoming digital and the amount of data that is generated and placed online is enormous, the main concern of any company has become the security of its information. If you’re intrigued not only by technology but also by data security, then being a security engineer might be right up your alley!
3. Legal IT Manager
The fact that technology has infiltrated our lives in every single aspect means that IT companies exist in abundance. What those companies need nowadays is legal advice from law firms that are specialized in the IT field. Think, for instance, about the new streaming platforms that have contributed to a whole new experience for listening and watching all kinds of movies, TV shows, etc. Such service providers are often battling copy-right and fair use issues that they must overcome. This is where you can combine your passion for law and IT in the same place.
4. UI/UX Designer
The great thing about modern jobs is that they blur the lines between different fields and can combine your skills and passions no matter how diverse they may be. UI/UX designers are the perfect example of that. It is impossible to categorize such job as pure IT or pure design. It’s a mixture of both, and it doesn’t work any other way. If you’re obsessed with IT and have design sensibilities, then this is what you’ve been looking for.
Do you like languages? What about computer languages? Good, because working as a programmer allows you to speak those latter languages fluently. The scope of work is huge, which means whichever project you take on can provide its own exciting experience and challenges to overcome. Being a programmer is kind of like being in your own little world of creating new things using a secret language that not everyone is fluent at. If this sounds appealing to you then you have stumbled upon your career path.
6. Quality Assurance
Working in quality assurance needs perfectionists who are able to nitpick every small detail and have an eye for anything that seems off. This is vital for any product or service to create the best experience possible. Again, this is a job that will require more than a love for technology. You will be able to mold a farreaching experience and an impressive list of skills if this is the job you decide to pursue. Of course, there are many more jobs that are related to technology.
