Check out the Hadoop Administrator job listings on Glass Door to see qualification requirements, etc.


There is no question that Hadoop is hot. It is a Java based system, so you should have familiarity with Java. There is a fairly comprehensive Hadoop tutorial on Yahoo that should give you a basic overview of what it can do, and what you need to be able to do. Good luck. http://developer.yahoo.com/hadoop/tutorial/index.html
