Marketplace talent resource WANTED Analytics announced on Thursday that according to The Hiring Scale, employers and staffing firms have posted more than 10,000 job ads that included requirements for cloud computing skills and experience in the past 90 days.

As part of the WANTED Analytics platform, the Hiring Scale measures conditions in local job markets by comparing hiring demand and labor supply.

According to the study, more than 2,400 companies posted job ads during this 90-day period and hiring demand grew 61 percent year-over-year.

Computer specialists and programmers are most commonly required to have cloud computing experience. But as cloud technology continues to impact other areas of business, additional fields are more commonly required to understand and work with cloud-based applications.

Other jobs that most often include these skills in job ads include marketing managers, sales managers, customer service representatives, and cargo and freight agents.

The study showed that the metropolitan area with the highest volume of job ads for cloud computing skills during the past 90 days was San Francisco, where recruiters in this area placed more than 1,000 unique job listings, representing a 95 percent year-over-year growth.

Other cities with high demand included Seattle, Washington, DC, New York, and San Jose, which was the only location to see a year-over-year decline in the volume of online job postings.
