Freelance DevOps Engineer jobs at EPAM Anywhere (remote only)

DevOps Engineer work is difficult to overestimate. With DevOps, tech companies deliver their end-users value based on the combination of technology, processes, and team interaction. But it wasn't always this way. In pre-DevOps times, engineers and administrators - or operations - focused on different goals and efficiency metrics and worked in isolation from each other. When DevOps practices eventually emerged, they have basically brought together the best of two worlds.

Today it's hard to imagine an IT company without DevOps Engineers. But what areas of responsibilities do DevOps Engineers cover these days? Let's go through the list of skills and duties typically stated in DevOps Engineer vacancies, and see which freelance DevOps Engineer jobs are available on the IT market.
