Yesterday I shared the full infographic for the Platform Engineering salary survey, so you can have it all in one place when asking for a salary 📈 Let’s take a closer look at the annual numbers. In the recent article about how Platform Engineering is different from DevOps and SRE @Aeris raised the question: is platform engineering just a title you can leverage for a salary bump? Leaving the “title only” for other discussions, the survey results show that platform engineers indeed make significantly more than DevOps, especially in Europe (19,4% more 😮). Still asking yourself is it worth turning your career path towards platform engineering? Numbers speak for themselves 😉

Hey Luca, thanks for sharing those insights. There is no doubt that the future of DevOps is Platform Engineering 😍 One question: can you share the number of people who responded to this survey?

Interesting how USA salaries differentiate from Europe. I never guess the gap was so pronounced.

now we've got ourselves a new name the marketers and recruiters are going to use to call system engineers
I already imagine the next recruiter "but ....do you have experience in platform engineering?!"

Whilst the gap is there, what you don't see is the lower cost of living in Europe

The cost of living... Is relative, are we comparing France to Wyoming? 😉

Nice data! Could be interesting to know “time in the industry” in addition, as that would affect the salary many places. And max, min 🙂
