World Report

It has been 64% more searches of DevOps on the AmazingHiring platform at the end of this year compared to the beginning of 2021. Lots of companies are struggling to find DevOps engineers locally, especially since this is a type of job that cannot be fully remote.

We’ve collected some data from AmazingHiring platform to give you insights into the DevOps talent market of today (November 2021).

If you’re looking for where to source DevOps talent, this might be of help. As you can see, countries with big local market demand, such as France or UK, are leaders when it comes to employing infrastructure engineers.

 

The Top 3-6 is almost equally shared by Germany, Spain, Netherlands, and Poland. You might want to go there when searching for DevOps engineers.

Top 5 Industries employing DevOps

Information services
2

3
Financial services
4

5 Security

 

Where do DevOps engineers work? The problem with the high demand for DevOps is also that they’re not the IT workers only. They are equally essential for banks, telecommunications, and security services.

Seniority level of DevOps engineers on the EU market

Junior 1,820
Middle 6,586
Senior 53,208
Manager 10,276
Executive 1,549

 

The DevOps market has seen significant changes in the past few years. Today, there are now levels of seniority added to the profession of DevOps. We see more and more companies looking for Junior DevOps engineers, and even more — eagerly growing the talent within their current teams.


Female vs Male DevOps professionals in the EU

Female 6,652
Male 72,186

 

We cannot skip mentioning the subject of diversity when we talk about hiring DevOps engineers.

The estimation by the AmazingHiring platform says that there are 12x less female DevOps than males in the European Union. If companies want to bring more women to their cloud infrastructure teams, it’s not going to be an easy task for a recruiter to solve.

Top 5 EU countries with Female DevOps

Now if we look at the leaderboard, we notice how Sweden seems to be a country loved by female DevOps engineers. Having been #7, now Sweden is #3 best country where recruiters may source female DevOps.

1 France 3,283
