Cloud computing is now among the most in-demand skills in the world. Due in large part to the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for cloud-native systems and the subsequent creation of cloud computing jobs, has become all but mandatory for many businesses. According to LinkedIn’s 2020 Workplace Learning Report, cloud computing was listed as the second-most important hard skill employers require after blockchain technology.
Cloud computing jobs require a variety of skill sets/knowledge including:
- Database management and programming. Those familiar with SQL, NoSQL and Linux will have the advantage.
- Artificial intelligence and machine learning. These two technologies aid businesses’ agility and efficiency by processing and analyzing patterns, making insights based on that data, and facilitating faster, more accurate decision-making.
- Understanding and experience with cloud technologies and providers. Some of these vendors include Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure and Oracle.
