how to recruit a devops 2024

Hi, I recently participated as a guest in the podcast “Technical Recruitment for DevOps”. I was invited by Mateusz Bogolubow from Below you will find a small introduction for less technical people, some of my thoughts and of course a link to the entire recording.

Who is DevOps?

The modern technology industry is developing dynamically, and one of the key players in this area is DevOps. This concept may seem mysterious to those outside the IT world, but understanding who DevOps is and what its daily activities entail is the foundation for today’s technology enterprises.

DevOps is more than just a job position or specialization. This is a concept of cooperation between Development (software creation) and Operations (systems management) departments, aimed at improving software development and implementation processes. It is a work philosophy based on the idea of continuous integration and software delivery, eliminating barriers between teams, which contributes to faster and more efficient product development.

Under the DevOps, there are various roles and specializations. A DevOps Engineer is often a person mainly responsible for automation and infrastructure as code. However, this is not a clear-cut position, as DevOps roles may vary depending on the needs of the organization. However, the common denominator for all DevOps is the ability to solve problems and the ability to communicate effectively with other team members.

The technical interview for DevOps, both online and offline, is designed not only to assess technical knowledge, but also analytical thinking skills and approach to problem solving. Questions may concern various technical areas, such as version control, containerization, automation, networks or cloud computing. I will reveal some of them in the podcast. It is also important to communicate well in English, because DevOps often cooperates with international teams.
