Platform engineers and DevOps engineers' salaries

:us: In the US, Platform Engineers make 42.5% more than DevOps Engineers​:moneybag:

This considerable difference can be attributed to the higher demand for advanced platform engineering skills that drive scalable and efficient infrastructure, reflecting the US market’s emphasis on innovation and cutting-edge technology development. :man_technologist:

:eu: Whereas in Europe, the difference is only 18.64% more for platform engineering!

This narrower gap may result from a more integrated approach to infrastructure and operations management within European companies, where the delineation between Platform engineering and DevOps is less pronounced.

European firms might prioritize cross-functional skills and collaborative practices, leading to a more equitable salary distribution. :balance_scale:
