Moreover, and according to the Dice’s 2019 Tech Salary Report, the DevOps Engineer role has one of the top-ranking salaries among all tech salaries.”

The company provides IT professionals with three enterprise level DevOps certifications: DevOps Foundation, SRE Foundation, DevOps Practitioner and DevOps/Agile Service Management.

DevOps Institute CEO Jayne Groll says, “We are delighted to announce our expanded Global Education Partner program and to recognise in particular our Elite Partners like DDLS who have fully embraced the advancement of the Humans of DevOps through DevOps Institute’s SKIL Framework.”
