State of the Automation Professional Survey 2023

In its fifth year, the State of the Automation Professional survey is designed to highlight main aspects of your working environment. From biggest satisfactions and frustrations to discovering career path transitions. What defines the automation developers and professionals role? What are the major trends in AI product usage? What are the biggest challenges that ‌community members face in the automation industry? What are the learning needs of the different roles that are present and active in our community? What are the main learning resources used? What is the community sense of belonging? What are the main UiPath products that our members are experts in?

These are a couple of questions that we aim to take a closer look at this year. Join the movement! Complete the survey! Let’s find out together what shapes the dynamic automation industry. The survey data collection will be open until June 9. By participating, you’ll have the chance to enter our raffle and win one of 50 vouchers; each voucher is worth $50 towards UiPath goodies.

This research aims to support customers, partners, and automation developers and professionals in the industry with valuable insights about the level of satisfaction and competence. Another important objective is to expand and improve our ability to help professionals in their automation learning journeys.

From last year’s report, we’ve learned that most automation developers and professionals are highly satisfied with their roles and they have a strong sense of community belonging. Eighty-two percent of ‌UiPath users consider themselves to be part of the UiPath Community, a trend increasing year-over-year.

Automation developers and professionals play a significant role in influencing which technology their companies use. Seventy-five percent of developers use an AI-based tool for their automation projects, with optical character recognition and document understanding being the most prevalent features. The UiPath AI-powered products that the respondents are interested in building expertise are: UiPath Studio product family, UiPath AI Center™, and UiPath Document Understanding.

Read key takeaways and last year's report.

The data will be compiled into an insightful report available to all those that complete the survey. Fifteen minutes is the estimated completion time. Automation professionals' community near you is essential, so please share the news among your peers on social networks.

Recognizing the diverse expansion of our audience, we have crafted three survey pathways. One is tailored for automation developers, another for business automation roles, and a third aimed at students aspiring to pursue careers in automation.
