Devops vs Backend

  1. I noticed this platform only has a DevOps option. Is there a reason for that?

2)For an early stage startup which is more essential, DevOps or Backend?

  1. Would you expand on “only has DevOps option”? I read this as you’d like Triplebyte to have a Backend track.
  2. Below is a good article that that touches on the multiple roles an engineer will play at a startup . Here’s what Stephan said, “At a startup, engineers write more code. They will require you to push it out faster, and chances are you will work on the front-end, back-end, middleware, and database. They might even do some DevOps work.”

  1. Not necessarily, I’m just curious on why devops is an option but not backend. There can be many reasons such as, maybe there is a bigger demand for devops as compared to backend. Another reason could be that maybe devops means the same thing as backend on this platform(TripleByte). I just find it interesting that its excluded on this platform and I am sure there is a good reason. Again, just curious.

Great read by the way, I really like how the article talks about a new department in Big Tech being the middle ground. Thats something i never thought of.

Unfortunately, I’m going to have to defer to @Rachel_Wolford who runs the assessments team.
