I’m a devops engineer with about 2-3 years of experience in devops and 12 years total IT infrastructures/support experience. Currently utilized technology include Kubernetes, Ducker, Jenkins CI/CD pipelines, Chef, AWS etc.. have AWS certification and some others. Live in NYC. How much should I be asking for to be competitive as far as salary, bonuses, stock etc? Also, any good companies recommendation that are hiring now?

    I'd suggest trying to get back into mainstream jobs using your IT and infrastructure/architecture skills. Learn what actually happens at each layer and not treat them as black boxes. I see DevOps will phase out over the next decade or will move to cheapest geos.

      Why do you think DevOps will phase out? I see the opposite pattern.

      What does a DevOps do that a bot cannot? We're filling the gap with humans until automation is completed. There will be need for DevOps in future, but that won't be same function as today's.

      I'll make a prediction: Bulk of DevOps will get laid off in US/EU in the next recession that seems imminent. Get sharp!

    DevOps importance will increase for sure in coming years and not many qualified people. If you are planning for Bay Area, there are lot of companies to consider

      Only in the short term.

    Get out of devops bro it’s a short term thing . There’s already a ton of companies who are trying to solve it for everyone , and if you look at aws release patterns - first they release something in an mvp form then they automate it out so there’s nothing needed

      Lol "devops is a short term thing". Clearly you have no idea what dev ops actually does.
