In the grand scheme of things Devops is one of the newer phrases to the IT world but it has been one of the biggest changes for companies to adopt and the industry to adapt to.
Each website you read and each company you meet with often have a different perspective on the role of DevOps and how it should be done. All of these different perspectives make sourcing great DevOps talent…. interesting to say the least.
Over the past 3 years, DevOps has become a core part of the technical space ITR commonly recruit for across the UK and Europe and our focussed DevOps team are on hand to help find the right DevOps talent to fit within your teams.
