re: “DevOps engineer” is really just a title used to hire sysadmins? VIEW POST


My last job started hiring for a DevOps Engineer as I was leaving. It sounded to me like they were after a Sys Admin and not a DevOps Engineer. I've found that, predominantly in non-tech organisations, people are misusing the term DevOps, and falsely believe it's synonymous with Sys Admin. Despite the obvious parallels and overlap, DevOps culture and process extends way beyond just the configuration and upkeep of any ecosystem. I think the scope of DevOps is greater than that of a SysAdmin role, but unfortunately I do agree that many places are rebranding their SysAdmin role as DevOps because it sounds like they're 'keeping up with the times'.
