Silicon Roundabout

It has been reported that up to 800 jobs are going at over 100 of the “top tech startups in the UK”. Companies including Twitter & Songkick were recently handing out “free coffees” – Huddle, Wonga, Mozilla and Moshi Monsters creator Mind Candy, were apparently dishing out “free fruit”. Where was the free beer?

Stats from UK jobs agency Adzuna suggest that Objective C is still the best remunerated tech skill for graduates, with graduate Objective C coders earning an average £41,327k compared to £27,585 for graduates going into HTML jobs, but “gurus” and “ninjas” are in demand too. Currently 596 UK employers are looking for “gurus”, Adzuna reports, with over 70 seeking “ninjas” and one tech employer looking for a “Coding Jedi”.

Apparently tech giants Google, Facebook and Twitter are most likely to word their technical jobs specs with such titles.

Salaries for jobs on offer at Silicon Milkroundabout range from £21k for a junior developer to £60k for a senior Perl developer, Adzuna reports. And yes, stock options are available: apparently 25 per cent of startups currently hiring in London are offering stock to graduate tech employees – compared to 0 per cent of banks. However average wages are significantly higher in the banking sector.
