This month, the recruitment firm Robert Walters published a study on job offers in the digital sector in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. The market continues to grow with a 19% increase in ads for IT executives in April 2019 compared to the same period in 2018.
A dynamic that benefits network engineers / architects since the number of proposals increased by 43% last month. "With the rise of the Cloud, the role of network experts and architects becomes strategic [...] Guarantors of design, network quality and security, they are a major asset, even for companies that have outsourced their infrastructures" comments the manager of the IT and digital division of Robert Walters' Lyon office, Edouard Trackoen.
According to him, this is even more true for companies with many sites and wishing to develop an SD-WAN project. Indeed, he adds "Beyond technical expertise, companies will welcome candidates who are also able to make the link with business issues". According to this logic, the proportion of CIOs with a CTO / Infrastructure Director course would have increased at the expense of application managers.
