Commentary on IT Banking & Financial Services Roles And Remuneration in Tokyo for 2018

Technology roles in Banking and Financial services were active in 2017, driven primarily by demand in the projects space.  We saw this demand across a number of financial services clients, as bilingual project managers, business analysts and project-related professionals were all highly sought after.  Indications are this trend should continue into 2018.  Furthermore, in the securities industry a number of traditional roles in the Java (and to a lesser extent C++) development space continued to see a small uptick in demand in 2017 versus the previous year.  Towards the latter part of 2017, we also saw increased demand for various infrastructure specialists, including Unix system administrators.

Commentary on IT in Commerce & Industry Roles and Remuneration in Tokyo for 2018

Technology roles across the Commerce space were very active this year, driven primarily by demand in two areas: technology sales as well as infrastructure support roles.  Interestingly, although the number of jobs open in tech sales did not significantly increase from 2016, we did see clients making decisions faster and offering highly competitive increases on base compensation.  In fact, 20% base salary increases were not unheard of for tech sales professionals in 2017.  Much of the demand for sales professionals was driven by a number of mergers in the Technology B-to-B space, as companies needed to upskill their teams to meet their revenue targets.

We also saw consistent job volume  for infrastructure support specialists across all industrial sectors, including the life sciences, manufacturing and technology sectors. There was particularly strong demand for bilingual network engineers, infrastructure generalists and other infrastructure administration & support specialists throughout the year.  We anticipate demand into these areas will be much the same for the year ahead.
