PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Puppet, the standard for automating the delivery and operation of the software that powers everything around us, today released the findings of its fifth annual DevOps Salary Report. The report, based on over 3,000 responses collected through the 2018 State of DevOps survey, examines a myriad of factors impacting salary levels including region, role, demographics, industry and size of an organization.
Underscored in the report is the fact the IT jobs landscape is changing, with larger businesses with more complex technology infrastructure paying more for more experience and diverse skill sets. For example, at organizations with over $2B in revenue, the vast majority of IT jobs (79 percent) pay $75,000 or above. Comparatively, less than half (47 percent) of IT jobs at organizations with less than $50M in annual revenue pay within the same range.
“Companies are increasingly changing the way they deliver IT services and software across the globe, which means businesses are in need of the right talent who can adapt to this shift, raise the bar for software delivery and play an integral role in innovation,” said Alanna Brown, director of product marketing, Puppet. “This year’s report underscores that as more organizations prioritize DevOps, they are putting more resources into finding the best talent that can support their IT strategies and objectives, especially as more complex technology infrastructures require diverse skill sets.”
The State of DevOps survey is the largest, most comprehensive and longest-running study on the topics of DevOps, IT performance and organizational performance. The survey includes responses from professionals across six continents.
