Kubernetes Dominates in IT Job Searches

43

Kubernetes was the dominant technology skill requested by IT firms in 2018, according to a new report from jobs board Dice.

The report, which scoured the site’s job postings, found that “Kubernetes” was far and away the skill most requested by IT recruiters and hiring managers. Nate Swanner, editor of Dice Insights, noted that Kubernetes – and to a lesser extent Terraform – led the demand of skill requests toward “containerization of apps and services, as well as the cloud.” Terraform is an infrastructure as code software by HashiCorp.

The Dice news followed similar findings released late last year from jobs board Indeed.

Indeed’s work found that Kubernetes had the fastest year-over-year surge in job searches among IT professionals. It also found that related job postings increased 230 percent between September 2017 and September 2018.
