SaaS is a popular software delivery system in which companies create products for online distribution. They provide access to third-party users to their products by using a subscription model. The best example of SaaS products are Netflix, Dropbox, Grammarly, the Google Drive Suite, etc - they're all software you typically don't need to install, offer some kind of service (i.e. 'software as a service' and are typically 'paid' for monthly/yearly if you're using paid versions of the tool (i.e. you don't own the tool if you use it, like a downloaded application). 

This type of software distribution has become so normalized that it’s hard to think it used to be different a couple of decades ago. In the past, if you wanted to buy software applications, you were given a CD that included the installation system. Then, you would install it, use it, and wait for the next update to be released. You would only pay for it once until you had to get an updated software version. 

SaaS freed users from having to install software, maintain it, troubleshoot it, and update it. With SaaS, the applications are updated and maintained automatically, and it’s all taken care of by the software provider. 

Being part of the SaaS industry is highly valuable these days and comes with great compensation and a positive job outlook. However, competition is also high, and you need to be able to stand out from other candidates. Learn how to do it with the following resume templates.
