We have one developer in our group who makes changes to the pipelines and build servers. At this point, he doesn't have much to do on a daily basis, and most of his time is devoted to regular development on our product. We have a group of about 10 developers and about 6 business analysts and 5 qa testers. The business analysts take the business feature requests and create features and pbis and write up the requirements. The business analysts keep the backlog in priority. The developers groom the backlog once or twice a week to estimate complexity. The business analysts set up the sprints and the developers determine what can get done in the sprint. Sometimes there are too many items in the sprint, and we work with business analysts to determine what to move to the next sprint and what to keep. Sometimes we can complete more work, so we try to add additional pbis to the sprint, or add some tech debt pbis (which devs have created and groomed earlier) to the sprint.

Over the years, we have added custom status to some of the dropdowns in the pbi and task items, and we have also added some custom fields we track. It's pretty easy to add these items, and the managers usually do it (either the manager of the business analysts, or the dev manager).

Setting up the build environments (build servers and configuration) and release pipelines is the biggest task, but once done, only needs a little maintenance (such as updating the build servers with updated third party libraries).

We use SQL server, WebAPI, vue.js, webpack, node and other web and other .Net Core technology stack.
