IT offers make up 22% of all available vacancies in the Moscow labor market. The demand for programmers has grown by one and a half times since September 2020.

The most popular employees are software-developers. More than 40% of all positions in the IT field allocated to software developers. In addition, the trend for iOS and Android mobile software operating system developers has increased by 30%. Employers are interested in specialists who write in PHP, JavaScript, 1C and Java.

It is also noted that since January 2020, the average income of experienced programmers has increased by 16%. The increase in wages rates stimulate the interest in IT education. In 2020, the number of students who chose to study IT has increased by 8%. This year, more than 100 thousand students are studying in the field of information and communication technologies. The demand for IT specialties is caused by the growing interest of citizens in new online services, as well as rising standards for existing online platforms.

"The majority of the Russian IT industry is concentrated in Moscow, so the development of this area is strategically important not only for the capital, but also for the entire digital economy of the country. The city acts as a partner of the IT business, providing companies with convenient tools for obtaining support measures, filing documentation, and finding new partners. The innovations of Moscow companies are successfully applied in the urban economy and social sphere, and become a part of a large-scale urban digital ecosystem for citizens. The result of this partnership is not only the stable growth of the industry, but also the emergence of new services that make life in Moscow even more comfortable," said Moscow Government Minister, Head of the Department of Information Technologies Eduard Lysenko.
