  • More and more, companies are moving their critical IT infrastructure to cloud-based environments. The reasons are pretty straight forward. Cloud-based computing allows employees to work from anywhere, increases collaboration, and centralizes software and security updates to name just a few. With all the benefits of cloud computing, it's no wonder companies are moving in this direction. And with this shift comes a need for employees who have the skills to help.
    According to Gartner, US$146,350 was the median salary for Cloud Engineers in 2018. It’s a jump of $22,050 in two years; in 2016, the median salary was US$124,300.
    This job profile is in Forbes’ list of the top 25 highest paying tech jobs.
    According to Glassdoor, this job role continues to be in high demand across US-based business enterprises with 8,215 job openings per month in the US alone.
    Gartner expects global public cloud revenue to grow by 17.5% in 2019.
    As per Forbes, 83 percent of the enterprise workloads will be in the cloud by 2020, with 41 percent of them running on the public cloud platforms, such as AWS, Azure, and GCP.
    Now, what do all of these facts indicate? Well, one thing is for sure, Cloud Engineers are taking some big bucks home! It has even been cited as one of the highest paying jobs by Forbes. Now, tell me if that doesn’t sound promising. Plus, it’s evident from Forbes’ reports that Cloud Computing is going to take over most of today’s business landscape in the coming years. Thus, it guarantees the fact that there will be a huge rise in the demand for Cloud Engineers, which is already huge enough as it is indicated by the thousands of job postings in Glassdoor. Therefore, it’s safe to say that your future is quite bright and secure in this profile.

    Technology changes quickly, however there are a few things that are especially in demand for cloud engineering candidates.
