How to hire a Unix developer? Essential skill set, interview questions, and a lot more

Unix is a powerful and widely used operating system known for its stability, security, and versatility. It provides a robust environment for developers, offering a command-line interface, a vast array of tools, and a hierarchical file system. Unix's scalability and compatibility make it ideal for managing servers, running critical applications, and handling complex tasks, making Unix developers a valuable asset for businesses seeking reliable and efficient software solutions.

The demand for Unix developers has been rising over the last few years, making roping in the right talent all the more important. If you are also looking to bring in professionals who can drive processes and workflows, this guide should assist you with recruitment.

However, hiring the right Unix developer with adequate experience and knowledge is challenging and equally time-consuming. To ease the effort, Turing offers the best remote Unix developers pre-vetted to a high standard at half the price. If you are a non-technical manager and interested in learning more about the hiring process of a Unix developer, we've put up an excellent resource for you.

Skills to look for in a Unix developer?

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

1. Well-versed with basic directory architecture

When hiring Unix developers in 2022, always look for professionals who can move the development process forward. The basic Unix directory architecture comprises a tree-like structure (drawn as an inverted tree), with a single directory at the top, called root, from which subdirectories branch out. Finding an expert with in-depth knowledge of basic architecture directories will help kickstart your project.

2. Strong shell scripting skills

One of the essential skills of Unix developers in 2023 is the ability to write shell scripts. It is a computer program specifically designed to run on the Unix shell, a command-line interpreter.
Some of the common shell scripting languages are sh, bash, csh, Perl, TCL, Python, etc.
Therefore, if you are looking for a Unix developer, be sure to include experts with high shell scripting skills in your candidate list.

3. Knowledge of commands

Unix developers often face complex situations during the development process. Debugging persistent problems can be a daunting task and requires a strong understanding of various commands. If you're looking to hire a Unix developer for your development team, look for an expert with a proven track record in technical management. Comprehensive command knowledge is an essential requirement for all Unix developers to ensure that you implement the correct code that meets your business requirements.

4. Troubleshooting and debugging skills

Applications are developed by combining different approaches, technologies, and thorough testing, but applications display errors and bugs from time to time. This is common, but identifying and resolving such errors requires technical understanding and investigative skills. Review the previous professional experience of the developer to see how well it fits your needs. So, if you're looking for a Unix developer, you can find an expert with excellent troubleshooting skills.

5. Knowledge of Unix versions

Unix runs on several distributions, with SunOS, Solaris, and ULTRIX being the most popular versions. Each version has its own set of commands that works in a unique approach requiring extensive distribution knowledge. Therefore, if you are hiring a Unix developer, look for someone who has experience working with multiple Unix versions to give you the flexibility as per the project requirements.

6. Strong interpersonal skills

One of the essential requirements in today's global market is effective communication skills. All team members must work together to meet project deadlines. Communication becomes more critical as the workspace gets remote; therefore, while hiring developers, especially remote Unix developers, look for someone who can communicate confidently.

Create a hiring funnel

Creating a hiring funnel will provide you with numerous benefits, like assisting you in identifying the top skills and identifying a Unix developer who will fit into your company's culture.

Top interview questions to hire Unix developers.

Before selecting Unix developers to join your team, it is crucial to test their level of knowledge. We've developed a list of interview questions that can help you vet applicants and select the perfect developer for the job requirement.

The kernel is the central core of the Unix OS that controls computer resources by providing an interface to the memory, processes, I/O devices, and other hardware devices. The Unix kernel does not communicate directly with the user but instead initiates a separate interactive program call shell for each user when the user logs on to the system. See if the Unix developer can explain this concept with confidence.

Unix has its own set of components like other operating systems, including the kernel, shells, GUIs, system utilities, and apps.

Some of the most common features of Unix are:

  • Machine independent
  • Portability
  • Multi-user operations
  • Unix Shells
  • Hierarchical file system
  • Pipes and filters
  • Background processors
  • Utilities
  • Development tools

The single-user system is a personal computer with an operating system designed to be operated by one user at a time. These systems are becoming more and more popular due to the availability of inexpensive hardware and a wide range of software to perform various tasks.

Shell tasks can be listed as:
Program execution,
I/O redirection,
Filename and variable replacement,
Pipeline connection,
Environmental control, and
Integrated programming language.

There are plenty of different variants of Unix used by developers around the world. The more a developer can list, the wider one's knowledge base is. Here's a list of popular Unix versions.

  • SunOS
  • Solaris
  • SCO
  • AIX
  • HP/UX
