Focus GTS is a specialized tech staffing and recruitment agency; our focus on specific positions within Digital Marketing Technology, Data Science, Cloud Technology, and B.I. & Analytics gives us a lot of insight when it comes to the world of tech roles. The Focus GTS experts have crunched the numbers and weighed in, using their Cloud Computing industry knowledge to put together a helpful guide for companies looking to hire within that space. 

Do you know how long the average Cloud role is on the market before being filled? What about the top reasons Cloud professionals leave their current role for a new position? What certifications should you be looking for when vetting a new candidate?

If you want to learn about some of the trends that currently define the Cloud Computing space, this guide is the perfect place to start your journey. In it, we take a deep dive into the details of Cloud Computing positions and corresponding salaries and also take a look at the hiring process for Cloud candidates. We’ll compare entry-level positions to senior-level roles, salaries by role (and by state), and everything in between. This way, when you approach your next hire you’ll know the lay of the land and can offer a competitive salary for the role you’re looking to fill. 

The Focus GTS Salary Guide for Cloud Computing Professionals also explores the many certifications that are available for candidates to pursue and compares the different types of accreditation each role should have. We’ll show you some of the top-recommended certifications for AWS, Azure, and GCP – and we even break them down based on the candidate’s experience! This way, you’ll know exactly what to look for when bringing on a senior level Cloud professional, rather than someone who’s just getting started. 

We also investigate a new trend in the tech space: contract roles, and contract-to-hire positions. Unsure whether a contractor would be a good fit for your organization? We’ll lay out the pros and cons for you, so you can make the decision that best suits your company’s budget and staffing needs. 

As a bonus, we’ve compiled a list of some of the foremost Cloud Computing conferences. Conferences are a wonderful way to get your business more exposure, and to develop your company’s talent by learning about new trends in the Cloud space and brushing up on industry standards.
