The concept “Internet of Things” has been around for a few years, but widespread adoption of the technology—which transforms real objects such as light bulbs or vehicles into cloud-enabled data providers — seems to be eternally dangling somewhere within the somewhat near future. However, that may not be the situation for much longer, as a survey from market research firm IDC forecasts that IoT sales will climb by over 16 percent by 2019, to roughly $357 billion.
Even so, it’s just scratching the surface. According to a survey conducted by Business Insider Intelligence, 24 billion IoT applications will be deployed by 2020. These might be anything from footwear that sends your whereabouts to Swarm to… I’m guessing, wind turbines that communicate with one another. IoT connectivity’s potential uses actually span all industries (the “Industrial Internet” has already become a reality in the energy and manufacturing sectors), which is great news for tech prospective employees looking to get some of that action.
Meanwhile, there is presently a lot of opportunity for tech geeks who want to partake in IoT projects, with more than 1,000 Internet of Things jobs ads on Monster currently.
We’ve compiled a list of Internet of Things Jobs, along with their job postings. If recent reports are to be believed, now is an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with technology that may become widespread very soon.
