Opportunities for Cloud Platforms

Professionals with expertise in cloud platform technology remain in high demand as traditional server architecture continues to migrate into cloud technologies such as AWS, Azure, and GoogleCloud. This has consequently led to the creation of numerous roles for Cloud Architects, as well as Cloud Security Engineers, to prevent these servers from being hacked.

Popular Industries for Cloud Platform jobs

With businesses across all manner of sectors migrating their data to the cloud, cloud platform specialists are in demand in almost every industry.

Recent changes in the Cloud Platform sector

As a relatively new technological development, it is only recently that cloud standards have become more heavily regulated, with compliance particularly crucial for securing these servers against data breaches. From late 2018, organisations in the finance and banking industry were required to bring in an independent CISO to manage their cloud security operations.

Future Prospects

Cloud engineers will always be needed to oversee the management of cloud systems, meaning that the roles are—for the time being—free from the risk of automation.

    Employers’ Requirements

    Employers looking for cloud platform specialists want to be sure that candidates are able to set up and configure their own unique cloud landscape, as well as demonstrating that they have experience in cloud maintenance in the relevant sector.

    CV Requirements

    With so many different cloud storage systems available to businesses, candidates will need to specify that they have the appropriate experience in the relevant system for their target company, whether that is AWS, GoogleCloud, or Azure. Employers will also want to see a CV that demonstrates the appropriate soft skills, such as problem-solving and communication, as well as a willingness and drive to keep up with the latest technology and security trends.

    Job Interview Preparation

    Jobseekers for roles relating to Cloud Platforms will typically be relatively informal, depending on how big the company itself is. Beginning with a conversation, they will often lead to a technical task which candidates can take home to prepare or complete on-site. Successful completion of these will be essential to their chances of reaching the next stage of assessment. They will also need to discuss their previous experience in cloud software and data migration, and present them in a way which demonstrates their part in the project.

    Some frequently asked questions in job interviews for cloud platform roles include:

    1. Describe a project in which you were responsible for implementing specific cloud solutions.
    2. Have you ever been faced with security concerns when migrating data to the cloud?
    3. Do you have proficiency in any web development software and, if so, which?

    Educational Requirements

    Candidates are required to have at least a Bachelors degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering, though further qualifications in related fields and certification in the use of cloud storage will also be particularly helpful.
