How to become a Kubernetes/Golang engineer?

Kubernetes (also known as K8s) is an open-source system for automating the deployment, scaling, and administration of containerized applications. One of the first firms to use Linux container technology was Google.

Engineers pick the appropriate programming language for a project from a wide variety of options. Because of its many built-in functions and other benefits for engineers, Golang, a programming language developed by Google, has risen to the top of the list of programming languages. Golang, which was first released in 2009, is currently a popular programming language among engineers and has gained in popularity as of 2019. Golang engineers have more career opportunities than Python engineers.

Golang is rapidly displacing Python. We'll explain why you should use Golang and how to get remote Kubernetes/Golang engineer jobs in this part. Before making a final selection, it is critical to have a deeper understanding of the language.

What is the scope in Kubernetes/Golang engineering?

Due to the advancement of applications and the acceptance of Kubernetes, it has now become the primary flow. It's not only about modernizing the architecture; it's also about altering how software is distributed and run. Kubernetes is rapidly gaining traction as the cloud's operating system, bringing with it universality and the potential for major advantages for IT firms and engineers. Kubernetes gained a lot of traction and adoption in 2017, with all major cloud providers now offering native Kubernetes services and numerous container orchestration solutions rebuilt on top of Kubernetes.

In the workplace and in businesses, Golang is becoming more popular. 76 percent of respondents use Go at work, and 66 percent believe it is essential to their company's success. Go has a high level of overall satisfaction: 92 percent of respondents are happy with it. The scope of Golang development in the digital industry is at an all-time high, according to these statistics. Hence, you can see a rise in remote Kubernetes/Golang engineer jobs.

What are the roles and responsibilities of a Kubernetes/Golang engineer?

While building and deploying containerized apps may eliminate the need for distinct development environments, understanding how containers function at runtime is crucial for Kubernetes engineer tasks. This is especially true when using a Kubernetes orchestrator and in production.
Golang engineers, on the other hand, are primarily responsible for creating a high-quality, error-free technology infrastructure, establishing and maintaining an effective operational environment with 99.99 percent uptime, and delivering high-quality, prompt, cost-effective, and reliable technology services to provide customers with the best impossible experience possible.
The following are the main tasks after landing remote Kubernetes/Golang engineer jobs:

  • Create a Jenkins-based continuous build-test-deployment (CI/CD) system with several component pipelines to accommodate weekly and out-of-cycle releases as needed.
  • Experience with Docker-based deployments, Docker images, Docker Hub and Docker-registries, and Kubernetes.
  • Lead the transition to Chef-based 'infrastructure as code,' including cookbook design and execution.
  • Using the essential technologies, Golang engineers should be able to construct streamlined, scalable, and modular software.
  • The products that are published must be bug-free; they must be constantly tested, updated, and patched. Golang engineers test their code on a regular basis.

How to become a Kubernetes/Golang engineer?

You'll need a lot of experience, effort, and patience to become a Kubernetes/Golang engineer. Taking college-level Kubernetes/Golang programming courses is the most apparent way to get started. Computer science is the most popular program for college graduates who want to become engineers. It's crucial to note, however, that a computer science degree or diploma isn't required to work as a Kubernetes/Golang engineer. It's simple to get remote Kubernetes/Golang engineer jobs if you're familiar with the technology stacks. Choose a software solution to work on, then practice as much as possible to become proficient at applying it to various jobs and coding projects.

Understanding how to use codes to apply your technical knowledge in real-world assignments and tasks tests your talents while also allowing you to learn as you go. This is critical if you want to establish a portfolio as a Kubernetes/Golang engineer that you can show to potential employers.

Let's take a look at the talents and techniques you'll need to become a successful Kubernetes/Golang engineer:

Skills required to become a Kubernetes/Golang engineer

The first step is to begin studying the critical skills that will help you land high-paying Kubernetes/Golang engineer jobs. Let's take a look at what you'll need to know to work with Kubernetes and Golang.

1. Scripting and scripting languages

Scripting is a key tool in the toolbox of many engineers. The reasons for this are self-evident: they allow you to automate tasks and finish projects more quickly. If you're not familiar with scripting, you should start learning it right away. Even if you do, it's worthwhile to experiment with several programming languages. If you primarily use Python, you could find that using a new method makes you more productive or helps you to solve problems faster than previously. It is one of the important skills to master before applying for remote Kubernetes/Goland engineer jobs.

2. Cloud Design and architecture

The days of cloud computing being nothing more than a leased server are long gone. Its days of offering a straightforward (or at least somewhat simple) answer to storage and computing problems are long gone. Being able to put together several diverse components is critical, especially as multi and hybrid clouds become the norm and serverless gains traction at the cutting edge of software development.

3. Go Libraries

Go Kit, GORM, Gen, and CLI are the most widely used Go libraries. Working with Go will be significantly easier if you use decent libraries and packages. Each has its own distinct qualities, so picking one that best fits your objectives and working on it is a smart idea. Employers look for candidates having an understanding of this skill in remote Kubernetes/Golang engineer jobs.

4. Error handling

It is a vital component of writing code that is strong, dependable, and maintainable. Self-programming might assist you in adapting to new surroundings. Error handling is an important aspect of developing strong, stable, and trustworthy code when writing libraries or packages for people to utilize.

5. Testing

Testing software programs is likely the most crucial task a software engineer can undertake. An engineer can have a high level of confidence that a program will operate by testing the intended functionality of the code. Furthermore, anytime an engineer makes a code change, he or she may run tests with the assurance that no mistakes or regressions have been introduced. An engineer can also specify the intended behavior of a program through software testing.


The JSON file is another fundamental and probably more important component in Golang. You must produce JSON files as a Golang engineer. Simply said, it organizes and maintains package data and dependencies, as well as the project's script. If you ever need to verify what packages or dependencies to utilize in the application, you can quickly access this file and review the details. To land remote Kubernetes/Golang engineer jobs, make sure you have a thorough understanding of this skill.

7. Databases

For an engineer, knowing how to work with databases is a must-have ability. engineers must be able to do a wide range of tasks, including saving records, generating, adding, updating, and removing data. It is necessary to have familiarity with relational databases such as PostgreSQL or MySQL in order to construct any form of application or program. Knowledge of log frames, with Zap being the most significant for Go, might also be beneficial.

How to get remote Kubernetes/Golang engineer jobs?

Because of Kubernetes/Go infrastructure, Kubernetes/Golang engineers are among the most in-demand professionals in the IT sector. They may assist enterprises in a variety of ways by utilizing Kubernetes/Go's dynamic characteristics. They must, however, put in sufficient effort to achieve that professional level of software development. In this regard, engineers should concentrate on two key things in order to reach this level: help from someone with more expertise and more effective approaches in the field when practicing. It's critical to know how much to practice as an engineer. As a result, make sure you assemble a team that can aid and leads you through the development process!
