Summary List Placement

As every company becomes a technology company — with needs like modernizing its app or adopting cloud computing —  there’s high demand for developers specializing in the top three programming languages: JavaScript, Python, and Java.

Developers use JavaScript largely for web development, Python for data analytics and artificial intelligence, and Java for web applications and database-driven software. Beyond traditional tech firms like IBM or ServiceNow, banks like JPMorgan Chase, telecommunications companies like Comcast, and retailers like Nike, Costco and CVS Pharmacy are all looking for developers specializing in those specific languages, too. 

Python, especially, has seen a surge, as it’s one of the fastest growing programming languages according to GitHub and one of the most loved, according to the developer Q&A site Stack Overflow. For the first time ever, Python even surpassed Java in popularity last year.

To get a sense of what companies may pay for roles using these programming skills, Business Insider dug through firms’ disclosure data with the US Office of Foreign Labor Certification. Companies are required to disclose salary (or in some cases, salary ranges) when they hire foreign workers under the H1-B visa program, giving insight into what major companies are willing to shell out for tech talent.

Business Insider looked for positions with “JavaScript,” “Python,” or “Java” in the title. Although this isn’t a comprehensive look, since it only includes data for foreign workers, it gives a rare peek at the salaries that companies pay US-based engineers and developers specializing in JavaScript, Python, and Java:
