While backend developers were the hardest to find in September after analyzing 130 offers from 95 companies, frontend developers with knowledge of JavaScript, HTML, or React were the easiest profiles to find.

Backend makes up the most wanted profile in Barcelona, followed by Full Stack, Frontend, Mobile, and DevOps, according to the Joppy report for November. DevOps are increasing in demand but are hard to attract.

On the pay spectrum senior talent with five years or more of experience working on Machine Learning expect the highest salaries at €60,200 while entry-level Marketers expect €28,300.

What ‘Techies’ Look For

As of October, the majority of tech talent in Barcelona is mostly interested in working on “interesting projects,” according to Joppy.

They want to work less hours and they want the flexibility to work from home, along with salary compensation.
