Beginner's salary in DevOps

+2 votes
I just got done with computer science engineering, I was planning on starting my career in the field of DevOps. I had a few questions before I started this and it would be great if they got answered.

Firstly, is certification needed or just knowledge enough? I know knowledge and experience is all that matters but most of the company requirements include certification. So I was  bit confused.

Secondly, How long does it take to master this course?

And finally, obviously I'm worried about the salary, I would like to know the basic salary structure for a beginner and how does it change with experience.

Thank you so much!

Hello @Hannah,

Starting your career in DevOps is a great decision, there are a lot of vacancies and very few people trained, hence easier to get shortlisted and as demand increases pay obviously increases.

So, number one, Knowledge is obviously needed but certification is an added advantage and increases the chance of getting a job.

It takes almost two months to learn and practice the basic concepts of DevOps. The rest comes with hands on experience.

Finally let me guide you to the salary structure.

If you're a fresher it mainly depends on the company, you get into and your educational background.

If you've perused your studies from a known reputed college like iit, nit etc. there are chances you get placed in companies like google, Microsoft etc. and your pay would easily be 15-18LPA.

If you've studied from any other college and got placed in an MNC like TCS, Infosys, you can get up to 3-4LPA

You can get up to 7LPA in a product-based company provided you've got the required skills and knowledge.

All the best!!
