Editor's note: the survey has closed and we'll be highlighting results of The State of the RPA Developer 2021 report during our DevCon event on June 15-16, 2021. The virtual event is free and open to the public.
The second annual State of the RPA Developer survey is here.
What’s this State of the RPA Developer thing all about, you ask?
Quick refresher: in 2020, we ran this industry survey for robotic process automation (RPA) developers for the first time. We’d often heard from RPA devs that they wanted to better understand how their experience compared to that of their peers. And for professionals considering a career as an RPA developer, it was hard to get a clear picture of what the job looked like.
So the State of the RPA Developer was born. It aimed to provide insights into the lives and professions of RPA developers around the world. More than 1,500 of you responded to our first survey, helping us paint a picture of the RPA developer in 2020.
Among other things, we learned that the majority of RPA developers are highly satisfied, feel challenged by your work, and feel positive about the future of the industry. You also told us that COVID was accelerating RPA activity around the world. We made some surprising discoveries about how COVID-19 was affecting your work, like a clear difference between demand for RPA and the increased workload in Asia when compared to Europe.

In creating the 2021 survey, we spoke to a number of RPA developers to find out what you were interested in hearing about. You’ll find that we included many of the questions we previously asked so that we can explore some of the trends year over year. And, we’ve introduced questions to get a better pulse on how RPA developers are learning and how your ways of working have changed during the pandemic.
We’ve also added a section especially for students to answer so we can learn a little bit more about the people who are currently thinking about or progressing toward a career in RPA.
We’re excited to learn how this emerging profession continues to evolve. The survey should take around ten minutes to complete and closes on April 19, 2021.
Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts with us.
