DevOps Engineer


DevOps is the convergence of existing IT best practices from ITIL®, Lean, Agile, and Scrum into a development and operations approach that supports automation and continuous delivery. Described as more of a mindset than a framework, DevOps aims to blur the lines between the existing IT siloes to create a more collaborative relationship between Dev and Ops allowing organizations to create greater business value with more streamlined processes, faster deployments, and more successful releases.

To guide IT practitioners on their DevOps journey, Pink Elephant offers a comprehensive DevOps portfolio of courses that provides an all-encompassing look at the DevOps framework and role-based certification courses, specific to the roles within DevOps.

  • DevOps Essentials - This certification course, provides the foundational knowledge and a new and unique perspective of DevOps through the ‘Full Stack’ of culture, practices, and automation.
  • DevOps Leadership - The DevOps Leadership certification course builds on the learnings from the DevOps Essentials certification course with a leadership perspective on the challenges inherent in implementing DevOps. These challenges, first introduced in the ‘Full Stack’ approach, span the creation and acceptance of new organizational culture, new principles, and processes, and moving the enterprise toward a new model for success.
  • NEW! DevOps Engineer – The DevOps Engineer certification course provides detailed knowledge about the key skills and tools necessary for today’s DevOps Engineer. This three-day course will be available on August 23, 2021.

DevOps Engineers and DevOps teams make sure that everything is geared toward releasing updates as efficiently as possible. Highly effective DevOps is about collaboration, effective communication, removing barriers and introducing automation wherever possible. The role of DevOps Engineer is a critical success factor, accomplished by establishing a culture of experimentation and an environment of learning that enables the building, testing and release of software to happen more rapidly, frequently, and reliably.

As enterprise after enterprise moves toward DevOps, it is essential that the traditional specialists in development and operations expand their skillset into the role of a DevOps Engineer. Simply put, an organization cannot succeed at DevOps without talented DevOps Engineers.
