IT technicians (also known as Desktop Support Engineers) in most organizations are responsible for laptops, PBXs, printers, scanners, etc.

System engineers are responsible for complex IT systems design, and administrators work with the existing systems. Both are more about networks, servers, and other complex hardware.

In large organizations, the aspects of system administration are often divided into narrow specializations: networks, web administration, information security.

DevOps engineers are indispensable persons in companies with development teams and continuous integration (online games, streaming platforms, large retailers, and other services with an audience of thousands). They are responsible for smooth development, testing, and deployment.
