If you’re working in cloud computing, it’s a good time to be in the sector. According to the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report, “Due to the twin forces of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Covid-19 recession, day-to-day digitalization has leaped forward, with a large-scale shift to remote working and e-commerce.”
Glassdoor, the online employee review platform, says that access to working from home has nearly doubled since 2011, from 28% to 54%. All those workers need access to robust, reliable cloud solutions to do their work, create shared files and tasks, and conduct meetings and messaging with their colleagues.
What do the markets on Cloud Jobs say?
It’s no wonder the sector’s jobs are in demand, and the cloud computing space is burgeoning. Grand View Research recently published a study of emerging trends and valued the cloud computing market in 2021 at $368.97 billion. It estimates that this year, the cloud market will be worth $483.98 billion, reaching a revenue value of $1.6 trillion by 2030.
O’Reilly’s 2022 Cloud Salary Survey tracks trends for compensation, remote work, training, and more within the sector, and this year polled 778 cloud professionals to discover what they earn. The study discovered that, on average, salaries in cloud roles increased last year by 4.3%. Those who had participated in 40 or more hours of training in the past year received higher salary increases.
Twenty percent of respondents reported changing employers in the past year, and the same percentage of workers plan to look for a new job this year because of their compensation. Perhaps unsurprisingly, 63% of respondents work all the time remotely, and 94% work remotely at least once a week.
In less positive news, the average salary for women is 7% lower than the average salary for men. While the study gives averages for salaries, it also highlights top compensation markers. Sixty-eight percent of respondents earned between $100,000 and $225,000 per year, with 7% earning over $300,000 per year, and 2.4% earning over $400,000 per year.
So, what are the top average salaries in cloud computing this year?
