This is my field of work, and just wanted to add a couple of tidbits from my own experience:

I can confirm it is near impossible to find a good engineer with this skill set. Understanding enough about systems and software at the same time is very rare. Positions have gone unfilled for months.

Also, according to Stack Overflow community surveys, DevOps specialists have among the highest job satisfaction numbers of any professional developer. Something to consider when picking a specialty!

I agree Kelly! we have had such a hard time finding qualified candidates too. We usually end up hiring a developer and teaching them about infra, or a system administrator and teach them how to write code. What do you do now in your current role?
