The future for Mobile DevOps engineers is looking brighter than ever with the DevOps market being valued at $7 billion in 2021 while being projected to reach $51 billion by 2030. Mobile ad spend, new app downloads, and hours spent in-app have all increased in 2022. In fact, almost 36% of recruiters want to hire employees with DevOps skills as the need for DevOps engineer roles is predicted to rise 21% by 2028.
With mobile growing as a primary revenue mechanism, there is more need for builds and tests. Competition in the mobile space also continues to rise, causing new pressures to increase demand for the Mobile DevOps role for faster mobile deployment, better customer experience, and more reliance on DevSecOps and DevOps tools like CI/CD. One in five developers currently use CI/CD tools to automate building, testing, and deploying code for better results.
Mobile DevOps engineers who use DevOps tools are seeing greater benefit in terms of speed, quality, skill, and ROI. Companies using mobile DevOps technology are less likely to be low performers in deployment frequency, are more likely to report improved delivery performance, and are expected to be top performers in lead time for code changes.
For DevOps engineers, being able to focus more on Mobile DevOps can expand jobs, improve demand, and enhance quality of delivery.
