To someone who isn’t familiar with these roles, it’s easy to think that DevOps and systems reliability engineers (SREs) might have the same job.
Doesn’t it seem like every day there’s a new mishmash of responsibilities into a job title?
The deeper you get into the tech sphere, the more unintelligible the job titles seem to be.
The median DevOps engineer’s salary is $103,994 in base pay, with around $28,514 in additional pay through bonuses, commissions, and profit sharing according to Glassdoor.
It’s time for some speculation on my part 🔗I believe that the job duties of “back-end” and “DevOps” engineers will coalesce to include almost everything that “the user doesn’t see”.
DevOps principles, and CI/CD specifically, are generally presented as a more efficient way to run a software development organization.
“DevOps” is one of the most misunderstood terms in the software development industry. To be clear, I’m not the arbiter of truth when it comes to the definitions of words.
