How do you recognize a good Devops engineer?
Like all good technical specialists, a Devops engineer has an inquisitive mindset and is always developing himself and improving his skills. When he talks about technology, it is not the same as talking about work. He has to balance between the interests of the customers/users and those of the development team. There for he needs to have some emphatic skills. It is also recommended that a Devops has experience as a developer and also has consultative experience. A good Devop is therefore usually an experienced technician.
Good developers have a great interest in innovations in the field of programming languages and related technology. Their interest goes beyond the programming language they happen to be working with at the time. In the same way, this also applies to Devops. They know what important developments are happening in the field of technology and tools and can also advise his stakeholders in this field.
Devops are pre-eminently involved in problem solving. A structured working method is particularly important if these problems are caused by the cooperation of different systems. Being stress resistant and able to communicate well with other stakeholders are therefore important requirements for a Devops engineer.
