yes! The languages q and k are a great way to expand your programming skills.

In terms of how lucrative, k/q skills combined with domain knowledge is usually what is required - see some advertized jobs here (~80-100k GBP)
or
But these salaries do vary widely - e.g. combine with quant skills for higher value.
