1. UI (User interface) designer

 

Although similar to UX, this solely has to do with the design of user interfaces (connection) of a website, mobile app or software. They are concerned about how a human should interact with a computer (human-computer interaction!).

UI designers are responsible for the look and feel of a software. They take care of the visual design, wireframing, storyboards, flows, sitemaps, amongst others.

In general, they set the path to make sure the software functions as it should, with elements of the site working together as a whole.

 

2. UX (User experience) designer

 

UX designers are concerned with the experiences of the user while using a software or a platform. Hence their primary goal: increasing user satisfaction.

The field of UX is a broad one. Their job extends from user research to prototyping of products and beyond. But their responsibilities lies within their reach.

One of such responsibilities is user research which involves understanding (the preferences of software users) what users like and what they do not like through whatever method obtainable.

Another important job for the UX designer is to be in the know with Information Architecture. IA is: being informed about the latest and most effective site or app structures as times passes on.

While there are other responsibilities such as, prototyping and wireframing, the ones mentioned above stands as the top responsibilities of a UX designer.

 

3. Technical writer

 

Not all tech-related jobs have to do with crafting apps or websites with mind-blowing designs and structures. If your abilities involve creating succinct, comprehensible written works, then technical writing might be for you.

Whatsoever it is, whether, it be press releases, technical reports, software specifications, instructions for users or whatever type of document, it all falls within the arms of the technical writer.

But your writing talents isn’t just enough.
To be an efficient technical writer, you must have a full idea of what you write. Whatever it is, no matter how daunting, it should be understood to it’s full – at least basically.

 

4. Operations manager

 

Every software ought to function. An operations manager is in charge of maintaining the functioning of the software. It involves identifying malfunctions. Through the operations manager, everything can and should run smoothly.

 

5. Software tester

 

It is self-explanatory.
A Software tester checks if a software meets the guidelines and standard that the software is expected to meet, by running various tests on the software.
The job requires the tester to pre-use the site or app, checking for correct and incorrect responses. If bugs turn up, it will then be reported to and resolved by the developers.

There are various platforms to choose from to get started.

 

6. Project/program management

Busy business people with laptops hurry up to complete tasks at huge clock and hourglass.

Project managers are sort after in the tech world.
Persons occupying this office don’t need to understand coding. Instead, they carry out specific projects and monitor it’s progress to its completion.

For instance, a new feature needs to made on a software. The project manager takes charge of planning and setting up goals to reach the required target within a specified time-frame. The developers would have to work hand in hand with the PM to achieve this goal.

“A product manager is sort-after in almost all fields – including tech.”

 

7. Growth hacker

 

While developers and UI/UX designers work to bring software to life, growth hackers work is to bring the software to more eyes.

It is not a tech-rooted job, but it is necessary in the tech world.

These are the ones with the responsibility of increasing the number of users of a software. They are required to grow a website’s audience.

While it may seem “not-to-hard-to-do”, the growth hacker has to have a firm understanding of statistics and data analysis as he/she ceaselessly tests new strategies to find the most favourable way through.

The above is not all the opportunities that are available for non-coders. There are so many sort-out skills that do not involve coding when the tech industry is concerned.
The above is just the top seven(7) most sort after non-code jobs in the tech industry in 2021 and beyond.
