How to hire Terraform developers? Skills to look for, interview questions, and more

Terraform is a popular open-source Infrastructure as code (IaC) tool, used by DevOps teams to automate infrastructure tasks. It allows automation, building, changing, and versioning of infrastructure using infrastructure as a code technique.

As a result of several multi-tasking features of the tool, the demand for hiring remote Terraform developers is rising among companies globally. However, hiring talented Terraform developers is not as easy as it looks. The process is tedious and time-consuming, especially If you lack adequate technical knowledge.

To help you get a fair idea of what it takes to hire professional Terraform developers and what skills to look for, we’ve created a thorough guide. Browse through the list of mentioned qualities and interview questions to properly hire applicants.

Skills to look for in a Terraform developer?

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

1. Skilled in change management

A lot of times, cloud and infrastructural environments can be extremely fluid and unstable. This means that Terraform developers and experts are more comfortable functioning in such an atmosphere and they can constantly stay on top of these changes to the underlying infrastructure including databases, servers, and network connections. So, when you hire Terraform developers always look for professionals that are well versed in dealing with rapid changes in the cloud.

2. Proficiency in Terraform

When hiring Terraform developers, it is crucial to find candidates who possess a deep understanding of Terraform's core concepts. They should be well-versed in resource provisioning, managing the state of infrastructure deployments, utilizing modules for reusable configurations, and effectively working with variables. Look for individuals who are confident in their ability to write and maintain Terraform configurations to ensure smooth infrastructure management and deployment processes.

3. Knowledge of cloud platforms

When hiring Terraform developers, it is important to seek candidates who are familiar with leading cloud platforms such as AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud. Look for individuals who have hands-on experience deploying and managing cloud resources using Terraform. They should be adept at leveraging Terraform to provision infrastructure resources in these cloud environments, ensuring compatibility and efficient utilization of cloud services for optimal application deployment and scalability.

4. Understanding of Infrastructure-as-code concepts

When hiring Terraform developers, it is crucial to find candidates with experience in working with Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) principles. Look for candidates who have practical hands-on experience using Terraform to provision and manage infrastructure resources. Their familiarity with IaC and Terraform will ensure efficient and reproducible infrastructure deployments, improved collaboration, and version control.

5. Thorough understanding of software development and operations (DevOps)

In today's infrastructure and cloud environments, DevOps is practiced to harmonize and integrate development activities throughout the entire software lifecycle including the design, development, and production support. This is an essential skill to check for in Terraform developers as the approach significantly reduces time to market for applications and eliminates unnecessary bottlenecks.

6. Familiarity with various programming languages

The knowledge of popular programming languages and the ability to write code to build, deploy and manage applications quickly are core capabilities for Terraform developers. Certain programming languages, such as Java, JavaScript, Go, PHP, Python, etc., are well-suited for cloud-based software and infrastructures.

7. Ability to communicate effectively with teams

For any developer job, including remote Terraform developers, communication skills are a must-have for successful onboarding and collaboration with colleagues and cross-functional teams. Interpersonal skills are not just crucial for one’s career development but in order to help organizations fine-tune the development processes periodically. While considering candidates for hire, look for Terraform developers who are confident enough to work with different teams and can communicate effectively.

Top interview questions to hire Terraform developers.

When looking to hire Terraform developers, it is important to test their knowledge with the right set of questions. Here’s a list of interview questions you can utilize to hire developers.

Though this is a pretty basic question, the way the candidate answers can give an idea about his/her experience. The answer might be like this- Terraform is an open-source tool used to create, change and version the infrastructure using a declarative configuration language, HashiCorp Configuration Language (HCL), or optionally JSON. It is a very popular DevOps tool across the world as it can handle very complex ‘infrastructure as a code’ with ease.

This can be a good follow-up question from the first one. Ensure to look out for developers who are capable of listing out various common Terraform features. They may include:

  • Generates execution graphs to tell the operators about the sequence of steps terraform will perform to add or change the configurations.
  • It translates HashiCorp Configuration Language configuration code into JSON
  • It offers support for multiple cloud platforms like AWS, Azure, and GCP through Terraform providers
  • Provides simplified custom syntax and helps in improving efficiency
  • Organizes and maintains configurations easily by breaking them into smaller parts

With this question, you can check to ensure the developers give a concise and thorough explanation of the plugins. They may answer that the providers and provisioners in Terraform are basically the Plugins. They are executable binaries that are written in the Go programming language. Providers are the most popular plugins used by Terraform to extend its capabilities and manage more types of infrastructure. Terraform has multiple built-in plugins, the SDK of Terraform plugin currently supports providers type terraform plugin.

You can test the developer’s knowledge in specific Terraform concepts. The candidate may answer that the login and logout command aids in handling CLI authentications on Terraform cloud. These commands help to automate the process of getting an API token for the Terraform Cloud user account. The Terraform login command automatically obtains and saves an API token for the Terraform cloud, Terraform enterprise, or any other Terraform service host. On the other hand, the logout command removes the Terraform login credentials which were stored.

IaC stands for Infrastructure as Code. In IaC, one can perform configurations, manage, and deploy IT infrastructures using code. With Terraform, it is possible to spin hundreds of servers for different service providers like AWS, Azure, or GCP. Terraform also enables programming in HashiCorp Configuration Language, which is very easy to read. Codes are written for the desired state in the configuration you want and Terraform will execute the required steps to reach that state. This question will help you gain an insight into the candidate’s level of expertise in various aspects of Terraform development.
