Wanted Analytics recently look at cloud computing jobs in the US and found:
- Average salary range for cloud computing jobs is $90,650 to $110,800.
- There are 10,077 positions open at 1,447 employers, with the average posting period being 47 days.
- EMC (17%), Amazon.com (16%) and Salesforce.com (12%) and their partners are the leading cloud computing employers currently looking to fill positions.
As far as location of these jobs, the top places to live with mad cloud skills are Seattle, DC, and the Bay Area. No surprises there.
Clearly, there is a gap between the number of those who are seeking those with cloud computing skills, and the number of qualified candidates. However, things will likely get much worse next year.
The larger cloud computing employers are, indeed, the cloud computing providers. However, moving forward, enterprises that are looking to move to cloud computing will be seeking specific cloud computing skills in late 2014 and 2015. Their demand could surpass job openings from cloud computing providers.
