Which skills should you have to be employed as a Web Developer in 2017?


I'm currently looking for work as a Web Dev. My workflow currently consists of HTML5, CSS3, SASS, Bootstrap, jQuery & WordPress as a CMS. I also use CodeKit as a compiling tool, which I find very effective. Although I find these to work efficiently - job postings seem to have varying requirements to be hired. Angular JS, View JS, REACT, Gulp, Grunt... The list goes on.

So, what are some of the most important technologies to learn in order to become employable in 2017?
