Fresher DevOps Engineer

Fresher DevOps Engineers usually have less than two years of experience and only know the basics of the technology stack or language. Even though they can use technology to do simple jobs, they still need a lot of help and supervision because they make mistakes more often. Since this is the case, their salaries are usually between $40 and $800 (10 million and 20 million VND) per month.

Junior DevOps Engineer

Developers at this level have been working in the field for at least two to four years. They have learned a lot about their chosen programming language or technology stack and have a lot of experience with it. They can easily do simple jobs with little help, but for bigger, more difficult projects, they might still need help and direction.

As they get more experience, Junior DevOps Engineers often take on more tasks and may be asked to help guide younger developers. Their pay is usually better than that of fresher developers. Each month, they make around 30 million VND. This shows they have more knowledge and experience and can handle more difficult tasks.

Senior DevOps Engineer

Senior DevOps developers have worked as professionals for 4 to 6 years and have a lot of information and experience with their programming language or tech stack. It's easy for them to handle complicated jobs without much help, and they often help lower-level developers solve problems. 

Senior-level developers usually make over 40 million VND per month, which is 30% to 50% more than mid-senior-level developers because they have more experience and more responsibility.

DevOps Engineer Lead

Leads are often startups' and SMEs' first hires. They need knowledge to comprehend the project's scope and needs and good communication skills to work with other DevOps developers. Compared to seniors, their salaries are usually 30% to 40% more.

As software companies grow and add teams, they must pay over 60 million VND for a qualified lead or manager. They plan long-term product development and hire additional team members.
