Haven’t heard of kdb+ before? Most graduates haven’t. Even though it’s in high demand, it’s rarely taught at university. This means people who work in the area are highly sought after, making it a massive area of opportunity for graduates starting careers in tech.
Kdb+ is a programming language and integrated database. Built to handle huge amounts of data, it’s used by the likes of Red Bull Formula 1 Racing Team and the top investment banks to store, analyse, process, and retrieve large data sets at lightning speed.
Banks use kdb+ to manage the terabytes of data that’s created by high-frequency trading. It’s referred to as the ‘hottest coding language in finance’, and offers a great opportunity for graduates who are looking to start a career in technology.
