What is a DevOps engineer?

A DevOps engineer is essentially a software engineer who practices the collaboration of software development and information technology (IT), whilst automating the process of software delivery. They tend to be experienced engineers who are skilled at working in development and operations. 

Rather than having a dedicated DevOps team, most companies will opt for one highly skilled DevOps engineer to ensure that the delivery process is efficient and automated. This can involve a lot of hard work for the engineer, as they will be solely responsible for the completion of any given tasks.

Working as a DevOps engineer will require you to help design and operate production environments. These environments need to involve fast paced developments and deployments. A DevOps engineer will often be expected to explore new technologies that will improve the overall production and development environment.

What does a DevOps engineer do?

As a DevOps engineer, you will predominately be responsible for establishing DevOps practices within the company’s Unified Data Architecture. You will be expected to aid in the design, as well as operate software in a large virtual environment. In order to achieve this, you will need to have the following skills and qualities:
  • Comfortable working with distributed teams
  • Focused on continual improvement
  • Metric driven
  • Strong expertise in a variety of technologies
  • Expert in automation
The role can vary depending on which company you choose to work for. Most DevOps engineers find that their main responsibility will involve writing the automation of the infrastructure and maintaining it. Others may have to collaborate with development teams in order to drive productivity.

It is always best to study the requirements of various DevOps engineer jobs, as you may find that some companies are looking for different specifications.

How much does a DevOps engineer earn?

If you are working as a DevOps engineer, you can expect to earn an average salary of £39,684 a year. This can vary accordingly to the level of experience you possess. 

Junior engineers usually start on a salary of approximately £27,907, whereas a senior DevOps engineer can expect an average of £55,718 per year.

How to become a DevOps engineer
In order to become a DevOps engineer, there is not necessarily a specific educational qualification that will help you follow your chosen career. Most people that take an interest in DevOps are developers or system administrators that have naturally progressed into the process of deployment and network operations. A degree in computer science can help you with roles in DevOps, but generally, it is not mandatory.

If you are looking to become a DevOps engineer in the future use job vacancies as an opportunity to learn the skills required to be a successful engineer. By doing this, you can progress in your current role, progressing naturally to a DevOps engineer.
