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.
