About

Today the technology sector is experiencing a boom throughout the world. There are hundreds of startups launching every day. In order to move quickly, these startups need people who are skilled at automating as much as possible. Mostly, progressive startups favor implementing completely automated DevOps pipelines from the get-go. They realize that these practices of continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) will yield tremendous benefits regarding speed and agility. The demand for these skills has been steadily rising over the last few years. AWS CodePipeline and AWS CodeDeploy is a highly scalable and configurable toolset from Amazon AWS, which enables us to build very sophisticated automated build and deployment pipelines. Jenkins is an award-winning open source toolset which enables us to build very sophisticated automated build pipelines very quickly. It has extensive community support which has augmented the core functionality of Jenkins by building and sharing hundreds of very useful plugins. Implementing continuous integration, continuous delivery and continuous deployment with these tools and frameworks can help us immensely in reducing the risk within our software development lifecycle. It catches bugs early and increases the quality of our software products. This, in turn, reduces the overall cost to develop innovative software in any environment - startups and enterprise alike. The demand for professionals who have experience with these tools has been growing steadily over the last few years. The salaries and consulting rates for these skills have also been rising and are only likely to go up as the demand for these skills remains steady or increases. Professionals with AWS and Jenkins experience can demand as much as $130K as their yearly compensation and these jobs pay more than the majority of the jobs posted on US job boards.
