It's not coding. DevOps/IT is different from coding.

With coding you learn syntax and start coding projects and learning frameworks/libraries.
It's easier to start but you are constantly grinding. Easier to start, harder to become adequate, constant grind afterwards.

DevOps/IT is much harder in the beginning because you just need to memorize a lot of shit. But you have certifications that can land you a job. Hard to start, moderate effort to be adequate, cheap certs. It does not take a lot to stay relevant or get better.

I mentioned python because you need some scripting language for automation and general understanding

After a couple of years you'll get tsp for retirement ( which i lost $2000 last 2 months because they everything on a mediocre L 2050 fund)
You'll get medical right away when hired
I guess the downsides are that as a CCA you'll work Sundays because Amazon have us grabbed by the balls (unless there's a warehouse and delivery in your city)

Won't be specific to which companies for obv reasons, but QA has to be easiest at the company at (from what I know it's just payload validations, if you know even a little bit of backend, this is a really simple one) and content management is pretty easy (typically just landing page building with enterprise page builders).

If you're willing to move, here's some advice. My dad has been a mechanical engineer for over 30 years. Spent his entire life living in metro detroit and working for the big 3. He's told me many times that all of them are hiring EEs right out of college with starting salaries of $100k due to EVs being pushed and cars are slowly getting every part connected to a computer, as well as assisted or autonomous driving. You could probably be making over $150k if you stay a while. Most of the mechanical engineering jobs are being underbid by pajeets and EE is where the money is at here.
