How to hire a cloud engineer? Skills to look for, interview questions and more

Hiring a cloud engineer is easy, but hiring the right developer with adequate cloud experience and knowledge is difficult. Companies that wish to develop policies for cloud services, and establish secure cloud infrastructure must hire the best cloud engineers. There are several factors that need to be considered while hiring a high-experienced cloud engineer. This includes experience with database architecture, advanced analytics, ETL, big data, and others.

On the other hand, hiring an experienced cloud engineer with all the required skills is both hard and time-consuming. To ease the effort, Turing offers the best remote pre-vetted cloud engineers at half the price. Turing selects the best remote cloud engineers after testing their expertise in many areas like cloud coding languages, machine learning, cloud computing platforms, databases, and more.

If you are a non-technical manager and interested in learning more about the hiring process of a cloud engineer, we've put up an excellent resource for you.

Skills to look for in a cloud engineer

At a high level, cloud engineers should have the following skills in their arsenal:

1. Knowledge of databases

Knowledge of databases can be considered a crucial need to be an efficient developer. The database is where all the data will be stored and you don’t want to hire a cloud engineer who is just familiar with or has very little knowledge of database storage. Instead, hire a cloud engineer who has knowledge of various DBMS technologies such as MongoDB, Cassandra, Oracle, MySQL, etc.

2. Familiarity with various cloud infrastructures

Cloud infrastructures play an important role in organizations. It helps to build large-scale data analytics systems, automate the setup, handling of complex tasks, and more. While hiring cloud engineers, you must check their proficiency in working with various cloud computing systems, like AWS, GCP, Azure, etc.

3. Familiarity with version control systems

Software development is incomplete without the knowledge of code versioning tools. Popular versioning tools such as Git help cloud engineers control each and every step in the process of software development. Cloud engineers who have adequate knowledge of working with such platforms can work efficiently on any project.

4. Understanding of machine learning

Machine learning has gained much popularity among developers in the past few years. An experienced cloud engineer must have adequate knowledge of various machine learning techniques as well as how they work. A skilled cloud engineer must have proficient knowledge of how this field works and how to utilize it in various projects.

5. Familiar with computer science fundamentals

Another key aspect to look for in a cloud engineer is in-depth knowledge of computer science fundamentals. You want to hire a cloud engineer who has adequate knowledge of data structures (stack, queue, tree, graph), algorithms (searching, sorting, dynamic and greedy programming), space and time complexity, and other CS concepts.

6. Knowledge of continuous integration environments

Continuous integration helps in validating the assumptions while building a web application. It enables a layer of transparency in the process of software development. A skilled cloud engineer must have knowledge as well as hands-on experience in continuous integration environments along with other important skills.

Whether you're an IT recruiter or a project manager, you know that finding top developers is critical to the success of your project. Here are some sample interview questions to use when looking for a cloud engineer to work on your online applications.

Cloud engineers who have been working with the Hadoop environment for quite some time must be familiar with block and block scanners. In HDFS, a block is the physical representation of data and a block scanner tracks the list of blocks present on a DataNode. You want to hire experienced cloud engineers who know both the advantages and disadvantages of this property.

Due to the high demand for technologies, software trends keep changing with the needs of the industry. While hiring a cloud engineer, it is important to know whether the engineer is familiar with all the key trends in cloud engineering and big data analytics that require the attention of all businesses.

Cloud computing has become a crucial part of organizations. Some of the advantages include improved collaboration, low maintenance cost, etc. On the other hand, some of the disadvantages include data leakage, denial of service attacks, etc. You want to hire cloud engineers who can explain how cloud computing works and what are its pros and cons. The answer to this question will help you understand the level of knowledge and best practices of a cloud engineer.

Cloud engineers use APIs to access cloud services through web-based communication. The answer to this question reflects the level of expertise the cloud engineer has.

Amazon Machine Image or AMI feeds information that is required to launch an instance. However, you don’t want to hire a cloud engineer who is just familiar with the tool. Rather, you want to hire someone who knows exactly how the tool works and when not to use it.

There are three different types of cloud service models. They are Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). If a cloud engineer knows the various types as well as when to utilize these types, the developer must have a deep understanding of cloud service models and how it works.

Security is one of the important aspects of cloud computing. The most common way of cloud security management is through the use of a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB). This is one of the most asked foundational knowledge questions that help in understanding the competence and practical understanding of the important cloud computing terms.

Some of the largest cloud providers and databases include Google Bigtable, Cloud SQL, among others. This question will help in understanding the skills that the cloud engineer has mastered and how the developer has used them over the years.

Run and hosted in the cloud, a cloud-native application is a program that is designed for a cloud computing architecture. The answer to this question will help you understand the knowledge and understanding of the main characteristics of cloud computing services.

Eucalyptus is an acronym for Elastic Utility Computing Architecture for Linking Your Programs To Useful Systems. It helps in pooling compute, storage, and network resources for application workloads.
