Copado Launches DevOps Talent Center
September 03, 2020

Copado introduced the Copado DevOps Talent Center to connect businesses with leading Salesforce DevOps talent.

This website is a resource for Salesforce DevOps training, certification, and staffing to address the growing skills gap and demand for Salesforce DevOps expertise.

Through a partnership with Salesforce recruitment leaders Mason Frank International and Salesforce talent creators Revolent, the Copado DevOps Talent Center offers a single place for businesses in search of DevOps skills to find professionals with a broad skill set to accelerate their Salesforce projects. Copado will be able to connect the right talent with the right teams. As DevOps talent spreads across the Salesforce ecosystem, more businesses will be able to successfully deliver projects on time and on budget.

James Lloyd-Townshend, Chairman and CEO of Mason Frank, said: “DevOps is one of the fastest-growing areas of demand for Salesforce professionals and finding skilled workers who can add genuine value to organizations is becoming increasingly difficult for them. This partnership will allow us to connect more businesses with the world-leading talent that we have access to.”

IDC reports that 4.2 million new Salesforce jobs will be created by 2024 and 30% of jobs in emerging technologies will go unfilled by 2022. Finding and retaining skilled DevOps talent is one of the biggest hurdles facing Salesforce teams. Well-oiled DevOps processes unlock rapid delivery, delivering valuable applications to the business faster.

“This is an incredibly exciting partnership for us to become involved with,” added Nabila Salem, President at Revolent. “We’ve already been able to inject the Salesforce ecosystem with a diverse range of net new talent. Our partnership with the Copado DevOps Talent Center enables us to deliver our world-leading training with a focus on an area that the platform really needs.”

The DevOps Talent Center includes three new certifications on Copado Academy -- DevOps Consultants, Advanced Consultant and Architect. These new tracks will define and deliver deeper DevOps experience that will prepare consultants to both implement and optimize large scale Salesforce projects.

Additionally, Copado created two new official Salesforce Trailhead Modules on DevOps and Continuous Innovation, the first ever from a Salesforce ISV. Copado has already trained more than 10,000 Salesforce DevOps specialists in the first half of 2020 and is on track to certify 20,000 by the end of the year.

“As companies pivot to virtual workforces and accelerate their digital transformation strategies, Copado is providing the training, certification and now the staffing needed to close the DevOps skills gap,” said Sanjay Gidwani, COO at Copado. “Businesses need the right talent and the right skills to achieve rapid delivery and rapid ROI in their Salesforce investments. Partnering with Mason Frank and Revolent is the natural next step to help Copado-certified DevOps professionals find their dream job.”
