The 2015 Linux Jobs Report Is Out -- Strong Demand Continues

"Unstoppable Linux Job Market Shows No Signs of Slowing Down"

The Linux Foundation in cooperation with Dice released their March 2015 Linux Jobs report. In a phrase, growth for Linux professionals remains strong once again and is growing stronger. If you are looking for a new opportunity, or to expand your existing skill set, Linux is a great way to do that. As I reported in 2013, the trend line for Linux talent progressed upward from 2012 through 2013 and that remains true today. Cloud services, mobile devices, application servers, perimeter devices, security tools, smart appliances all use Linux. In fact, most pro-Windows techs utilize Linux in their daily lives and just may not realize it. The market permutations are expanding due to its quality, ease of use, and ability to work with just what you need for your task at hand (e.g. micro-installations). Plus, the price is more than reasonable too.

This year's report is available here. It is free, but you do have register for the download.
The Linux Foundation's press release is available here.
Dice's press release page is here.

Three key bullet points from the report
1. Nearly all hiring managers are looking to recruit Linux professionals in the next six months
2. The rise of open cloud platforms is creating even more demand for Linux professionals with the right expertise
3. Linux-certified professionals will be especially well positioned in the job market this year

Remember, "Employers are hungrier than ever for Linux talent." (Page 3). Don't get left behind: learn Linux and stay marketable.


Training Available
If your or your company is interested in training your ICS administrators on how Linux can work with your company, or to learn how your company save money by using Linux on some of your servers, please let me know. I have an extensive track record with Linux training and would thoroughly enjoy helping people learn Linux, and provide a perspective on decreasing costs. Thank you for your interest.
