Your assessment is accurate. That is actually the type of position I am targeting, and I have been investing a lot of time in improving my skills in those exact areas that you mentioned. With that being said, it kinda depends on the company/team. I know that very small teams might not have a dedicated DevOps teams so as a developer, you are expected to be familiar with delivery methods and cloud infrastructure. The obvious case here is startups.
Thanks for reading and commenting. I did end up getting those 3 associate certifications and so far the search has been going very well! Thank you!
