Skills to look for in a MySQL developer?

At a high level, MySQL developers should have the following skills in their arsenal:

1. Knowledge of MySQL’s underlying storage engines

A storage engine is a software module that a database management system (DBMS) utilizes to create, read, and update data from a database. Some of the storage engines supported by MySQL include MyISAM, InnoDB, CSV, Merge, Blackhole, and others.

2. Familiarity with version control systems

Software development is incomplete without the knowledge of code versioning tools. Popular versioning tools such as Git help MySQL developers control each step in the process of application development. MySQL developers who have adequate knowledge of working with such platforms can work efficiently on any project.

3. Knowledge of cloud computing services

Cloud infrastructures offer flexible resources, improved energy efficiency, innovation, and more. Cloud computing services help developers be more productive by enabling more than two users to share and work on data simultaneously. You should hire a MySQL developer who has an in-depth understanding of how cloud computing works and has hands-on experience on various cloud computing services, like AWS, Azure, GCP, among others.

4. Knowledge of NoSQL database systems

Knowledge of various types of databases can be considered as a crucial need to be a MySQL developer. The database is where all the data will be stored, and you don’t want to hire a MySQL developer who is just familiar with the relational databases. Instead, hire a MySQL developer who is familiar with various NoSQL database systems, such as MongoDB, DynamoDB, Cassandra, among others.

5. Writing clean cloud code

An experienced MySQL developer must have adequate knowledge of several programming languages used while developing software on various cloud platforms. However, you want to hire a MySQL developer who not only knows several languages but also understands the importance of writing clean codes.

6. High-level proficiency in Agile methodology

Agile is a project management methodology that helps developers improve their products’ quality by providing continual feedback and updates. An experienced MySQL developer must have proficient knowledge of how this methodology works and should know how to utilize the method.

7. Familiarity with the SQL frameworks

Frameworks are environments with tools that help applications to be more efficient while coding. Frameworks such as SQL Translation are used to migrate a client application that uses SQL statements with vendor-proprietary SQL syntax. It is common for MySQL developers to have familiarity with various databases and big data technologies. However, you don’t want to hire a developer who is just familiar with the standard tools. Instead, you want to hire someone who knows exactly what framework to choose and what features should get prioritized in the first place.

Top interview questions to hire MySQL developers.

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 MySQL developer to work on your new projects.

Currently, the stable version of MySQL is MySQL 8.0. It has several new features, such as upgrade procedure, data dictionary, atomic data definition statements (Atomic DDL), security and account management, and resource management. Developers must keep themselves updated with the latest version of tools they are using. You would want to hire MySQL developers who not only know the newly added features but can also explain the importance of the newly added features.

MySQL is a community-driven DBMS system, while PostgreSQL is an Object-Relational Database Management System. Also, MySQL supports various platforms with different languages like C, C++, PHP, Java, Python, etc. and PostgreSQL supports modern applications features. The developer’s answers will indicate their knowledge of using various databases. It will provide you with a clear picture of their usability and accessibility standards.

The answer to this question reflects the level of expertise the MySQL developer has. MySQL provides some significant advantages. This includes on-demand scalability, data security, comprehensive transactional support, flexibility, and more. Answering the benefits demonstrates that a developer is familiar with MySQL’s core design and architecture.
