Talking with HR professionals, especially the ones that are not very tech savvy, we saw a great need for identifying the right skills and job descriptions for tech roles. For that reason, we decided to create a little cheat sheet of tech roles and matching skills. In addition, if you are not familiar with all of these roles and skills, we have defined the ones that people struggle the most with. Not very familiar with tech language in general?
