Cloud Engineer

Cloud engineers are IT professionals who design, implement, and manage cloud-based systems for businesses. They develop and implement cloud-applications, migrate existing on-premise applications to the cloud, and debug cloud stacks.

Cloud engineers in all roles must have proficiency
in the following areas:

Linux

Cloud engineers should have a strong understanding of the Linux operating system, which companies frequently use for cloud development. Cloud engineers should understand the architecture, maintenance and administration of Linux servers.

Database skills

Cloud engineers should have cloud database management skills and knowledge of MySQL and Hadoop.

Programming

Cloud engineers should have strong general programming skills, along with knowledge of programming languages such as SQL, Java, Python, Ruby, Golang, PHP and .NET.

Security and recovery

Cloud security is a growing priority among providers and knowledge of cybersecurity in the context of the cloud is a valuable asset.

Collaborative skills

Part of the daily tasks of a Cloud Engineer is to work with cross-functional teams (Product Owners, Scrum Masters, Developers, Designers, and Business Analysts), so it is vital that they can work in a team-driven environment.

Communication skills

The cloud engineer works with people, including IT professionals and non-IT experts, so it is crucial that they have an exceptional verbal, presentation, and written communications skills to convey information clearly to the different audience.

Open to learning

Cloud technologies become advanced over time, so an essential ingredient that most recruiters look out for in cloud engineers is their willingness to learn and work with new and emerging technologies.
