Navigating the Future: Unleashing the Power of Mobile DevOps Engineering

“DevOps Engineer” was crowned the most coveted job in 2021, affirming the profound influence of Mobile DevOps.  The market, initially valued at $7 billion in 2021, is forecasted to soar to $51 billion by 2030, escalating the demand for Mobile DevOps engineers in line with the 24.7% CAGR.


In 2022, key indicators highlighted this rise: a surge in app downloads (11%), an upswing in mobile ad spend (14%), and a climb in in-app hours (3%).  Consequently, recruiters are now in pursuit of DevOps-skilled (35.55%) and mobile development-skilled (23.37%) individuals.  The demand for DevOps engineers is projected to rise 21% by 2028, signifying a flourishing industry.

 The Mobile Direction of Devops

As the popularity of companies’ mobile presence grows, the imperative to accelerate build, test, and release times also surges, necessitating resolute Mobile DevOps engineers.  Businesses have recognized mobile platforms as primary revenue sources, with 33% of American retailers, 42% of small businesses, and 55% of millennial-owned businesses owning apps.  However, the surge in smartphone users (up to 30 apps monthly) and the competitive mobile space (5.7 million apps) necessitate more builds and tests.


New pressures further underscore the demand for the Mobile DevOps role.  About 57% of developers now release code twice as fast, even as 80% identify a lack of automation as a potential bottleneck.  Consumer expectations also contribute to this pressure, as 60% of users delete an app after one performance issue.


Cybersecurity concerns further drive the need for Mobile DevOps, with 81% of mobile apps susceptible to cyberattacks.  This vulnerability fosters growth in the DevSecOps market, set to skyrocket from $2.59 billion to $23.16 billion by 2029 (CAGR of 31.50%).  In response, demand for DevOps tools, specifically CI/CD, has amplified.


DevOps tools significantly elevate efficiency.  According to 49% of companies, Mobile DevOps has trimmed time-to-market.  Meanwhile, 61% of developers have reported quality improvements in deliverables, and 99% have acknowledged positive organizational impacts.  Despite implementation barriers (85% of organizations), the adoption of a mobile DevOps tool can alleviate these hurdles.


Among these tools, Bitrise stands out, used by over half of all mobile unicorn startups.  It promises to reduce build times, enhance deployment frequency, and improve app stability, thus optimizing infrastructure and DevOps expenditures.  Moreover, Bitrise provides comprehensive platform support, from iOS and Android to React Native and Ionic.



Prioritizing Mobile DevOps can catalyze job expansion, intensify demand, and augment deliverable quality for DevOps engineers.  As Bitrise CEO Barnabas Birmacher affirms, being mobile-first compels companies to incessantly refine their mobile offerings and adopt technologies that streamline their development and operations, thereby advancing the future of Mobile DevOps Engineering.
