HashiCorp -- Vault, Terraform And Consul Certifications

This startup's open source DevOps tools are earning respect across the industry.

Among them Vault, which secures tokens, certificates, and passwords; Terraform, an infrastructure management tool; and Consul for service discovery and configuration.

"We are seeing demand for their tools increase, with numerous customers of ours seeking engineers with enterprise-grade skills in HashiCorp Vault and Terraform," said Aater Suleman, CEO of Flux7, a systems integrator based in Austin, Texas. that specializes in DevOps technologies.

"As with any new technology seeing wide adoption, a skills shortage is likely to follow," Suleman said.

That dearth of expertise is motivating IT firms to hire staff who have validated their knowledge of HashiCorp solutions, adding importance to the professional certifications the company recently debuted that codify best practices and validate the tools are used correctly and securely.

CRN couldn't find any specific compensation data for HashiCorp certified engineers, but, on average, DevOps engineers in the US take home more than $123,000, according to Indeed.
