Check out Nichole Forsgrin’s research on DevOps. Might help you in the direction you want to go. She doesn’t approach it from a technical perspective but a management and business perspective. Applying technology to business problems, which includes mismanagement, buzzwords, productivity, etc.
I am a Systems Engineer that focuses on developing systems for hosting big databases, high processing, and high memory usage. We have data intensive systems that are hard to predict when the bulk of our traffic will come through. My primary duties are reserved for standing up the system, automating the deployments, load balancing, and scaling, and writing software to manage our backend technologies.
I’m definitely in Dream Job territory. I’d like to go automation engineer, Site Reliability Engineer, or Research and Development.
