The following Roles IQs were announced today:
- Security Analyst
- Server Administrator (Microsoft Windows Server)
- BI / Data Analyst (Tableau)
- Unity Game Developer
- Angular Web Developer
- React Web Developer
- Vue Web Developer
- ASP.NET Web Developer
- Node Web Developer
Pluralsight also announced three Role IQs created with help from Microsoft specifically tailored for Microsoft Azure including:
- Microsoft Azure Administrator

“Microsoft Azure is constantly adding new functionality that requires new skills.” said Jeff Sandquist, GM of Cloud and AI Developer Relations at Microsoft. “Through our collaboration with Pluralsight, Azure professionals will now have the ability to quickly and accurately measure their proficiency, stay current in their roles and become the best at what they do.”
With plans to make Role IQs available for additional technology positions, Pluralsight will continue to create roles independently and in partnership with Microsoft, Google and other industry leaders.
