Linux Jobs Report 2015

With its ability to adapt faster than any other platform to new technologies and markets, Linux is today’s defacto choice for everything from open cloud operating systems like OpenStack to product innovations like Tesla automobiles—and the opportunities abound for professionals who can support these increasingly ubiquitous Linux-based systems and projects. The time is right for professionals with experience on other operating systems to learn Linux.

To better understand the clear advantage that professionals with Linux expertise have in the job market, and to learn how employers can attract and retain the best of them, Dice and The Linux Foundation surveyed both hiring managers and job candidates. The 2015 Linux Jobs Report reveals and analyzes the responses from more than 1,000 hiring managers at corporations, small and medium businesses (SMBs), government organizations, and staffing agencies across the globe—as well as responses from more than 3,400 Linux professionals worldwide.
