And here I sit, at a market research facility in MN desparate to find a cloud developer for an online focus group. I need 7 of them. You fine folks are harder to find than a needle in a haystack.
The full-stack developer is a modern unicorn. Perhaps this explains the specialization and increasing team size I've noticed lately. My front-end developers tell me their job has become much more complicated even in the last 6 months. I would expect agile developers who have experience in cross-functional teams to have more exposure to the variety of skills and technologies needed for a job like this. Working closely with colleagues in multiple specialties, including business and operations, seems most natural for agilists.
If a company is looking for a cloud developer.  It would be better to hire someone that has some knowledge about it and a willingness to learn new things.  The idea of a full stack anything is odd, because a lot of devs like to learn new things to prevent burn out.
