Career path for scripting? What's the best language to learn?

What is a career path for someone interested in scripting (bash, PHP, VB, etc) but not interested in web design or programming?

I'm guessing it's something to do with automation or maybe database administration?


What's the best or most useful language to learn? Instead of learning a bit of everything I'd rather spend time mastering one or two languages.

Automation scripting and other types of similar engineering are highly desired with the growth of cloud computing, analytics and the Internet of Things.

The opportunities are good for someone with a specialized skillset. For example, here is an opportunity at IBM: http://rfer.us/IBEwDl1F9a
