Actually, i'vent yet switched from Solution Architect to DevOpS Engineer yet but seriously considering it, the reason for it is I've learned so much in my previous title, now I like to broaden my skill set as DevOps Engineer.

Is this considered demotion move from architect to DevOps Engineer? But it's offering higher salaries than architect positions.

Is DevOps another revolution similar to when mobile development came few years back?

To me DevOps is a process, not a title. On that basis I'd be hesitant of taking a job with that title as it might be an indication that the company offering the role doesn't understand the role and therefore the expectation. On the other hand, it could be because they don't understand it that the salary is higher. Be prepared to be an Educator as much as an Engineer.

That's true. And the range of work varies extensively. Some are automation jobs. Some are more ops jobs dressed up with a buzzword.

That's very true. In the place where I work, anyone with a hint of "DevOps" in their title or role are all Ops and no Dev. So if you're hoping to be doing Development it'd be worth while asking about that in the interview.
