"Terrific partner that has been instrumental in helping us scale from an MVP to series A"
Very well-vetted, high-quality candidates, ensure that I don't waste time interviewing unqualified people. They also make payroll a breeze and allow us to offer competitive benefits packages and provide hardware to our employees. They help find solutions that work for you rather than just making up the numbers and building a funnel.

Revelo manages the entire process for you. They found candidates; responded and adjusted their search based on my feedback; scheduled interviews; etc. After spending an inordinate amount of time trying to find the talent we needed in-house -- and honestly not doing a great job of it -- they got us a developer we're thrilled with.

Tips for Hiring Cloud engineers

Cloud engineers play a crucial role in modern companies by designing, implementing, and managing cloud infrastructure solutions. If you're considering hiring a cloud engineer, you're likely aware of the scalability, cost-efficiency, and enhanced security they can bring to your company.

However, it can be challenging to find the right cloud engineer. Though most have a background in software engineering, their job duties differ widely from other software development roles.

This article will discuss effective strategies to attract and assess cloud engineering talent, the salary expectations that applicants may have, interview questions, and the best ways to streamline the hiring process via Revelo’s extensive network of vetted cloud engineers.

What Is Cloud Engineering?

Cloud engineering focuses on designing, constructing, and maintaining cloud-based infrastructure and services so businesses can store, manage, and process data and applications on remote servers accessed through the internet. Cloud engineers work with cross-functional teams to understand the company's needs and produce cloud-based solutions.

Cloud engineering encompasses cloud architecture design, deployment, integration, automation, monitoring, and optimization. Cloud engineers work with cloud service providers and use a wide range of tools and technologies, such as virtualization, containerization, serverless computing, and orchestration frameworks. Cloud computing helps companies achieve greater flexibility, agility, and cost-effectiveness in their IT infrastructure.

What Does a Cloud Engineer Do?

A cloud engineer is an IT professional who applies cloud engineering principles to a cloud environment. "Cloud engineer" is actually an umbrella term that encompasses various roles, including:

  • Cloud network engineer: These professionals manage how data is shared within a company. They're also responsible for solving network connectivity issues, providing network configuration support, and more.
  • Cloud security engineer: Cloud security engineers work with cybersecurity teams to bolster a cloud's security systems. They use Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to support cloud implementations and cloud security assessments.
  • Cloud software engineer: Cloud software engineers are software developers who specialize in cloud computing systems. They may also be responsible for upgrading existing cloud systems and designing new systems.

A cloud engineer’s daily tasks vary depending on the company they work for but generally include the following responsibilities:

  • Assisting in the transition of organizational computer systems to the cloud
  • Configuring various elements of cloud infrastructure, such as networking and security services
  • Monitoring cloud management activities and data storage
  • Developing cloud-based applications and databases

Cloud Engineer Salary

According to Glassdoor, a mid-level cloud engineer with four to six years of experience in the U.S. earns an average total pay of $131,000 per year. This varies depending on factors like location, and education.

While cloud engineers in Latin American countries are equally skilled, the lower cost of living means they usually earn 30% to 50% less than their U.S. counterparts, with salaries varying based on location and experience. Revelo connects you with highly qualified, pre-vetted Latin American developers, offering a cost-effective solution without compromising quality.

How to Write a Job Description for Cloud Engineers

Writing a compelling job description is crucial, as it sets the tone for attracting top talent. Tailor the job description to your position by including qualifications, desired years of experience, and job responsibilities.

A junior cloud engineer typically assists with tasks such as infrastructure setup, monitoring, and basic troubleshooting. Mid-level cloud engineers help design and implement cloud solutions, optimize performance, and manage security. Senior cloud engineers lead architectural design, handle complex projects, mentor team members, and provide strategic guidance for cloud initiatives.

To attract the best cloud engineers, you’ll want to include the following sections, in addition to the basics like job title and hours:

  • Required qualifications and experience: List necessary cloud engineering skills, such as familiarity with Terraform, Splunk, Kubernetes, DevOps, Azure, and AWS. Include any other qualifications or experience needed for the position as well.
  • Job responsibilities: Outline the duties the cloud engineer will be responsible for, like designing and implementing new network architecture, troubleshooting existing issues, deploying and managing virtual machines and containers, and securing the company's data in the cloud with security protocols like firewalls, encryption, and authentication.
  • Desired skills and traits: Aside from technical skills, you may seek someone who communicates and works well in a team or a remote work environment.
  • Salary and benefits: Include an expected salary range and any benefits your company provides, like paid time off, a flexible schedule, medical coverage, or regular company retreats.

Interview Questions for Cloud Engineers

Well-crafted questions can provide valuable insights into applicants’ skills, experience, work ethic, attitude, and problem-solving abilities. These sample questions are just a few you can use to assess cloud engineers’ qualifications.

How would you address a security concern you’ve never encountered before?

Experienced cloud engineers know there's no one-size-fits-all solution to problems encountered when building and scaling cloud infrastructure. You will want to find candidates with intellectual curiosity, resourcefulness, and familiarity with the latest technologies.

Key things to listen for include the following:

  • Enthusiasm for exploring the unknown and solving new problems
  • Familiarity with concepts such as big data, machine learning, and advanced analytics
  • Willingness to acquire new skills and adapt to evolving industry trends

Can you describe the different cloud service models?

This question is important because it involves fundamental knowledge you want candidates to display. Look for an answer that includes the three main cloud service models:

  1. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) enables users to access hardware resources without upfront investment or physical installation. Its high scalability is achieved through automated provisioning, ensuring that users have the precise resources they require.
  2. Software as a Service (SaaS) delivers applications to end-users through cloud platforms and subscriptions. These applications are easily accessible and do not necessitate additional installations, allowing users to access them from any location with an internet connection. This convenience makes SaaS solutions highly user-friendly.
  3. Platform as a Service (PaaS) provides a managed environment for developing and customizing cloud-based applications. Particularly beneficial when multiple developers collaborate on a project, PaaS enables individuals to contribute while working with others to achieve a shared objective. PaaS includes everything from operating systems and servers to storage, tools, middleware, and more.

What are the layers of PaaS cloud-based architecture?

Because PaaS lets end users create and use various business apps your company needs, assessing a candidate’s knowledge of its basics is essential. A candidate should explain the following layers:

  • Cloud controller: This automates the creation of virtual machines and controllers, launches applications, establishes connections to different services, and dynamically adjusts resource allocation based on user requirements.
  • Storage services: These services provide efficient storage and retrieval of different types of files, including object, NoSQL, relational, and block storage, ensuring data is securely managed and easily accessible.
  • Applications stored in storage services: These applications are designed to scale seamlessly based on user demands.
