The pay gap between men and women working on DevOps teams is slowly closing, according to a survey from IT automation company Puppet. The State of DevOps Report 2021 found that women are steadily increasing their earning status across regions, roles, and industries.

The survey included more than 2,600 technology professionals and found significant growth across high-income wage brackets. The research also shows that other countries are catching up to the U.S. in high salary pay.

Pew Research Center also found evidence of this gap closing. It analyzed Census Bureau data on pay and found that women under 30 earn the same amount as or more than their male counterparts in 22 of 250 U.S. metropolitan areas. It also found that 17% of women entered the $150,000-plus salary range in 2021 compared to 8% in 2020 and 10% in 2019.
