The Future of Mobile DevOps Engineering

The phenomenal rise of Mobile DevOps Engineering mirrors the digitization wave sweeping industries globally.  In 2021, the title ‘DevOps Engineer’ reigned supreme among job listings, signaling a growing appetite for the field.  As the Mobile DevOps market scales from $7 billion in 2021 to a projected $51 billion by 2030, the demand for skilled engineers shows no signs of abating.


Cues from 2022 reveal an 11% surge in app downloads and a 14% escalation in mobile ad spending.  Additionally, recruiters express a strong preference for candidates possessing DevOps skills (35.55%) and mobile development expertise (23.37%).  These trends point to a 21% predicted growth in DevOps engineer roles by 2028, accompanied by escalating industry expectations.


Today, businesses bank on mobile as a primary revenue stream, necessitating the need for efficient Mobile DevOps engineers.  The relentless consumer demand for speedy, error-free app deployment and heightened competition in the mobile space only amplify this need.  Given that nearly 81% of mobile apps are prone to cyberattacks, a robust DevSecOps strategy is essential, fueling the projected growth of the global DevSecOps market to $23.16 billion by 2029.


Efficient Mobile DevOps tools such as Bitrise prove pivotal in enhancing operational speed, quality, and return on investment.  With about 20% of developers employing CI/CD tools for code automation, it is clear these tools are carving a niche in the tech stack of the future.  As Barnabas Birmacher, CEO and Co-Founder of Bitrise, suggests, prioritizing Mobile DevOps may well spark job expansion, surge demand, and uplift the quality of deliverables.  The future of Mobile DevOps Engineering, thus, looks set to propel the digital journey forward.
