DevOps & SRE Engineer Market in Malta September 2022

There are more roles linked to System Engineering, which can be considered junior DevOps. Roles that include Docker containerization and the more intricate roles are the ones that include Kubernetes.

Nevertheless, the core technologies among these roles continue to be Cloud-based platforms, Automation, Scripting, Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) as well as TeamCity, GitLab/GitHub and containerization technologies such as Docker and/or Kubernetes.

Another fascinating observation was that the market displayed a slight increase in DevOps / SRE roles in the financial industry which was a previously noticeable trend in the iGaming industry.

Companies and hiring managers are on the lookout for ambitious DevOps engineers who are motivated to develop and willing to take on extra responsibilities such as leading specialised projects. Any candidate with strong development experiences, such as programming and scripting, is very much the desired skill set (especially programming).

There are a lot of areas for engineers to upskill and develop. A really exciting benefit that engineers will pursue is an education allowance for courses and certifications. Certified courses in AWS, Azure and Kubernetes are very appealing for DevOps candidates as the majority of them are eager to become a master of their craft.
