New Zealand has a massive startup culture, and the industry is desperate for tech talent to step into operations and development roles. The demand is huge, and it’s not going to slow down any time soon. This has led to an influx of international talent over the years, as Kiwis have struggled to catch up to the technical skills demand. As a result, DevOps engineers in New Zealand are being very well-compensated in terms of salary and opportunities.
As IT specialists, we get it. Unlike some recruiters, we understand the nuances that come with these types of roles.

And, depending on the path that you took to get to your DevOps job, you would have picked up vastly different skills along the way. Different scripting languages, different configuration management tools, different environments, different processes…
As systems move to the cloud, and operations are focusing more toward code-based infrastructure, a lot of old skillsets have now been made irrelevant, giving way to all sorts of cool new job descriptions.
Depending on where you’re at in your career, DevOps salaries can range anywhere between $70,000 to $170,000!
And every conceivable combination of the above, and more…
