What is the average salary for cloud computing professionals in 2024?


The average Cloud Engineer salary in 2024 for mid-level workers is $136,794 and for senior-level workers is $156,482. These numbers can vary greatly from city to city, with regions in the west like Seattle, San Fransico and Silicon Valley having over 25% higher salaries compared to other cities in North America.


How much did Cloud Engineer Salaries increase in 2023?


Cloud Engineering salaries increased on average by 3.4% year-over-year, which was slightly above the IT industry average of 2% in 2024. 2023's stunted growth appears to be a market adjustment of years past, where a jump in hiring along with a significant lack of tech talent saw double-digit percent salary increases for many roles across tech in 2021 and 2022. Some specific titles and ranges did see bigger jumps than average, as the low end of a Cloud Engineer salary grew 6.8% in the mid-level and 8.3% at the senior level.
