Successful entry into the DevOps environment
How to become a Systems Architect?
One essential cornerstone is thinking outside the box of a single discipline. For working in a DevOps environment, Systems Architects need a t-shaped skill profile with deep expertise in operations, i.e. systems architecture, and general, broad development expertise, i.e. from the field of software development. But how to get such a skill set? Our jambit skill game creates your personal profile of knowledge from selected technologies and domains (currently only available in German, but we bet you'll understand all the technical terms anyway).
There are different ways to learn the profession of a Systems Architect. A typical way of education is a degree in computer science or technical computer science – but also business informatics, electrical engineering, mechatronics, or a comparable engineering discipline. Another good way is a training as IT specialist for systems integration. With a solid foundation in networking and computing, DevOps skills can be developed before entering the workforce. In your study, majors such as computer networks as well as operating systems can provide a solid theoretical foundation for this field. If you are not sure if you are interested in this field, an internship is the first way to approach this line of work. A working student job might also be a fit for you, since in addition to the theoretical studies, you can expand your practical knowledge in parallel. jambit also offers the possibility for internships in the field of DevOps or studies with in-depth practice (job ads only available in German).
However, a successful professional entry into the DevOps environment can also take place "on-the-job" after the training. If you are interested in infrastructure, you can specialize and develop further with a professional training in the direction of containers, cloud computing, security, or automation. At jambit, we believe that continuous knowledge exchange is essential for motivation and outstanding project work. Therefore, at jambit we invest in knowledge – knowledge building, knowledge sharing, and knowledge management. jambit wants its employees to always stay Top of Mind.
