Cloud Computing

During February, more than 5,000 cloud computing job ads were posted online in the United States, according to WANTED Analytics, the leading source of real-time business intelligence for the talent marketplace.

Hiring demand for cloud skills has grown drastically, up 92% versus February 2011 and 400% compared to the same time in 2010. With the demand for cloud skills growing so quickly, the gap between hiring demand and talent supply across the United States is getting larger and causing more difficulties in sourcing candidates.

Software Engineers, Systems Engineers, and Network Administrators are the technology occupations most commonly required to have cloud computing skills. Although cloud knowledge is most commonly required of Computer Specialists, technology jobs only account for two-thirds of cloud computing hiring demand. Other fields that increasingly require this experience include Marketing Managers, Sales Managers, Management Analysts, and Financial Analysts.

Although hiring demand continues, the talent pool remains limited and companies sourcing for cloud computing jobs are likely to find them difficult-to-fill. With the volume of job ads more than doubling in the past year, hiring demand outpaces the local talent pool of qualified candidates. Employers are likely to compete heavily to attract potential candidates and experience a longer time-to-fill than other areas.
