Employees who work onsite at their organizations earn an average of $51,000 less per year than anyone else in the cloud computing profession, according to a new salary survey by technology publisher O’Reilly.
Full-time on-site employees made up just 6% of the survey pool, compared to 63% who work remotely all the time and 31% who do it one to four days a week, the researchers said “Cloud Salary Survey 2022.” Remote workers were also more likely to report receiving higher pay increases.

The average salary in cloud computing is $182,000, according to the report.
