Top Companies Hiring for Containerization Jobs

By running applications in isolated user spaces, containerization offers a secure and scalable form of virtualization. Containerization packages software code together with the requisite libraries, frameworks, and dependencies, so deployment is consistent for applications, no matter the environment or infrastructure.

Though many tech job titles specify containerization, many of the open container-related positions are familiar roles to other IT disciplines. Positions in this field feature a median salary of $137,735 for senior software engineers.
