Owen is a senior editor at ZDNet. Based in London, UK, Owen covers software development, IT workforce trends and the evolution of tech and work. As work and the workplace go digital, employees with technical know-how find themselves at a distinct advantage when it comes to moving their careers forward – regardless of what industry they work in. There are numerous factors at play here: the growth of automation, for example, means that machines and software are now able to replace routine, low-skilled tasks on factory floors and in the back office. The normalization of hybrid and remote working also means that the rules of work have changed, as have the tools and software employees interact with on a daily basis.
