The president of the Republic of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, has said that Indonesia will need around 9 million IT experts for 15 years ahead. The high demand for IT experts is claimed to be a domino effect from the digital transformation plan in Indonesia. In other words, Indonesia needs more professionals in digital technology for the next few years.

If right now you are interested in digital technology, you can consider these top 5 jobs that are predicted to be in high demand for the future.

Indonesia has several unicorn startups founded by Indonesian, for example; Traveloka, Tokopedia, and Bukalapak. The success story from those three unicorn startups is a motivation for young entrepreneurs to take similar steps.

Considering Indonesia does not yet have many talents in artificial intelligence, this profession seems to have a bright future with a good paycheck!

3. Data Scientist

To process operational data, business or companies needs expert data scientists. Data scientists will collect, process, and analyze various types of data to create a pattern. The data is used as guidance to predict market trends. Companies determine the steps to be taken based on recommendations from data scientists.

4. Full-stack engineer

In a professional industry, a developer with one specialization works in a team with other developers with different specializations to create software. A full-stack engineer in the future will likely be in high demand since they usually know several programming languages. In summary, the works that previously need more developers now can be done with a full-stack engineer.

5. Application Developer

Application developers in the future are also projected to be highly needed. In the digital era, you can find that there are a lot of mobile applications specially created to ease human life. Mobile apps such as financial management apps, workout apps, and work productivity apps are highly developed in the current era. All of these apps were built and developed by application developers.
