Hiring managers: “A good Linux-head is hard to find”
A new report shows Linux experience is in greater demand — and, hiring managers say, harder to find — than in past years.
The 2013 Linux Jobs Report, released today by the Linux Foundation, surveyed 850 hiring managers and 2,600 Linus pros and found that Linux might be a good area of focus for aspiring techsters.
Dice’s annual salary survey shows that salaries for Linux folks are rising at double the rate of other tech salaries. Yet the number of practicing Linux pros seems to be dwindling.
Hiring managers in the Linux survey said they were finding it difficult to source good Linux talent.
