Sendmail professionals

This week we look at Sendmail jobs, the last profile in a four-week series on the open source occupational outlook (see our previous open source charts on Apache server professionals, Linux professionals, and Perl professionals). Actually, the decision to present data on Sendmail has been a source of contention at Datamation this past week. The problem is that there are only 84 Sendmail job openings listed on our sister site, dice.com, the largest Internet-based job board for IT professionals. That's too few to rely on for averages. In the end, we decided to go ahead and run charts on the number of Sendmail jobs by city and by job type to let our readers know what's out there.

At first, the apparent lack of demand for Sendmail know-how is a little baffling. After all, Sendmail provides the open source and commercial software that powers 75% of Internet e-mail servers worldwide. Dan Orzech, a contributing editor for Open Source IT, a Web site devoted to issues in the open source community, suggests that sometimes Sendmail is an unspoken prerequisite. He says, "Mail programs are usually considered a standard part of a systems administrator's job description... so they might not be listed as separate jobs." In other words, there may be more Sendmail jobs out there than we think, specifically for systems administrators. The data supports this theory, since 59 of an overall 84 Sendmail openings listed on dice.com are for this job type.

Data came from available jobs listed during Jan. 2000 on dice.com. Results are based on averages or totals from the following information on dice.com: salary, job type, job skills, and location.

  • Job title with the most demand:
    Systems administrator, 59 jobs

  • Region with the most demand:
    Silicon Valley, 47 jobs

  • Open source comparison and update: Perl, Linux, Apache, Sendmail (number of jobs)
