Job Changes Mean Higher Salaries for Cloud Professionals


Survey of US workers shows changing jobs is more lucrative than staying in current positions.

O’Reilly’s 2022 Cloud Salary Survey indicates that changing jobs can result in a significant salary increase — of 20 percent or more — for cloud professionals, reports FOSSlife.

Other results include:

  • Survey respondents earn an average salary of $182,000.
  • 20% of respondents reported changing employers within the past year.
  • 63% of respondents work remotely full time.
  • 94% work remotely at least one day a week.

This year’s survey was limited to U.S. participants and compared salary results by state, education level, age, job title, and certifications earned, among other things.
