Recently, we’ve been doing a bit of research into the most in-demand programming languages, specifically focusing on Python, and it’s growing popularity among aspiring developers. There has been an increase in the demand for Python developers over the last few years, a trend that has gone nowhere in 2021 (and will no doubt stick around into 2022 and beyond). So, if you’ve done the work and learned the language, what next?
The beauty of Python is that it’s general, meaning that it opens up a number of possibilities in terms of employment. And when we say possibilities, not only do we mean jobs – but also cities. If you’ve learned Python, and want to move to a new city – we’re here to help.
We took a deep dive into some Jobbio data to discover the cities in Europe that are most popular in terms of job postings that require Python as a skill.
Here are the places we found…

Dublin is a thriving city right at the forefront of the third industrial revolution. In the past decade, it’s grown into a major player in the global careers market, attracting companies from around the world who are eager to base their European headquarters on the shores of the Liffey.
Why is it so popular for Python Developers? Dublin has more than 1,200 startups and 250 global tech companies. Amazingly, 80% of the world’s global tech companies have a base in Dublin, (this is more than any other city in the world!). The area around Grand Canal Docks is affectionately known as Silicon Docks because Google, Facebook, Amazon, eBay and Microsoft all have their offices there.

There are roughly 578 international tech companies in the city with big players like Netflix, Apple, LinkedIn, Google, Salesforce, and Shutterstock choosing to have offices in the Dutch capital. The Amsterdam area is also one of Europe’s most buzz-worthy startup hubs. The city has numerous accelerator and incubator programmes which attract up and coming brands from around Europe.
