How to hire DevOps engineers

Looking for a skilled DevOps engineer to join your tech team? Here’s some expert guidance on how and where to tap into this talent pool.

DevOps engineers typically have experience in:

  • Deploying applications and services using containerisation and orchestration technologies, such as Docker and Kubernetes.
  • Creating continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines with tools such as Gitlab and Github Actions.
  • Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) tools such as Terraform, Ansible or Chef, or directly with the cloud providers such as AWS CDK, Azure Resource Manager, Google Deployment Manager.
  • Cloud platforms, such as Amazon Web Service, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure.
  • YAML
  • Sysadmin fundamentals.
  • Mastery of *nix (Linux, macOS, FreeBSD) and/or Windows shells.
  • Version control systems, such as Git.
  • Networking and security principles.
  • Agile methodologies.

How to broaden your talent pool when hiring a DevOps engineer

Backend engineers often do aspects of DevOps work as part of their roles — especially when companies don’t have dedicated DevOps Engineers on their team. This means you could broaden your net to search for backend engineers, who could have the experience and skills you’re looking for.

Site reliability engineers often have a lot of overlap with DevOps engineers. However, their skill set is generally more scarce.
