"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.

"Took all the hassle out of finding great talent"
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 Ubuntu developers

Due to its open-source, robust, and secure capabilities, Ubuntu has become a preferred choice for developers and end-users. Moreover, its intuitive user interface, powerful performance, and scalability can benefit many projects. This makes Ubuntu developers highly sought after by organizations looking to develop applications and software that work on the Linux platform (the operating system Ubuntu uses).

However, finding and hiring the right Ubuntu developers may require more time and effort than you anticipate. The market for Ubuntu developers is often competitive, with many companies looking to hire those with experience developing apps and software on Linux. Additionally, finding the balance between cost and quality can be a challenge.

This article will share tips for writing compelling job descriptions,  interviewing potential candidates, and ensuring you find an ideal candidate. It will also discover how Revelo can help you find and hire qualified and experienced Ubuntu developers.

What Is Ubuntu Development?

Ubuntu is an open-source and user-friendly Linux operating system based on the Debian platform. Ubuntu development involves developing and implementing applications, software, or systems on the Ubuntu operating system. This includes everything from writing code in languages such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to designing the user interface and troubleshooting any issues.

Developers and organizations use Ubuntu development for various projects, such as creating web-based applications, software, and mobile applications or building desktop applications. It is also used for developing embedded systems, such as those found in medical equipment or industrial machinery.

What Does an Ubuntu Developer Do?

Overall, the main objective of an Ubuntu developer is to ensure that applications are running optimally and efficiently on the Ubuntu platform. However, depending on your team’s specific needs, the day-to-day tasks of an Ubuntu developer may vary. Thus, hiring Ubuntu developers who can adapt to the changing demands of the job is crucial. 

However, there are some tasks that you can expect an Ubuntu developer to perform regularly, including the following:

  • Develop and maintain Ubuntu-based applications
  • Create, debug, and optimize code to run on the Ubuntu platform
  • Identify and troubleshoot bugs and errors in Ubuntu applications
  • Utilize tools such as Bash, Python, Perl, and C++ to create efficient code
  • Optimize and modify existing software to run more efficiently on the Ubuntu platform
  • Test applications for compatibility with the Ubuntu environment
  • Work with other developers and system administrators to ensure the best possible performance of Ubuntu applications

Ubuntu Developer Salary

According to Glassdoor, a mid-level Linux software engineer (a category that would include Ubuntu developers) with four to six years of experience typically earns an average salary of $157,056 in the U.S. This figure can, however, vary depending on the employer, location, and industry. 

In Latin American countries, the salary for an Ubuntu developer can be substantially lower than in the U.S. due to differences in the cost of living. Ubuntu developers with the same skill set and experience in these countries can earn as much as 30% to 50% less than U.S. developers. Revelo can connect you with these best pre-vetted Latin American developers, offering a cost-effective solution without sacrificing quality.

How to Write a Job Description for Ubuntu Developers

The first step in hiring the best Ubuntu developers is to create a job description that accurately reflects the skills and experience required for the position. Therefore, you must clearly outline job duties and expectations. Additionally, when writing your job description, it is important to consider which level of experience the position requires.

If your project involves more complex tasks, like developing software applications from scratch or debugging code, consider hiring a mid-level or senior Ubuntu developer. On the other hand, if your project involves less complex tasks, like creating user-friendly interfaces or maintaining existing software applications, consider hiring a junior Ubuntu developer.

Include the following details in your job description to attract the best talent:

  • Project scope and timeline: You should explain the objectives of the project and any milestones or deadlines you need to meet.
  • Responsibilities: List a comprehensive description of the tasks you expect the successful candidate to handle. Explain how the position will fit into the team and company structure.
  • Skills: Describe the skills, experience, and technical expertise the successful candidate should possess.
  • Compensation: Specify the salary, benefits, and other incentives you offer for this role.
  • Qualifications and experience: Specify the minimum level of education and years of experience the ideal candidate should have.
  • Company information: Include information about the company, including its mission, values, and culture.

Interview Questions for Ubuntu Developers

After creating your job description and posting it online, you must start the recruitment process by interviewing potential candidates. In the screening process, appropriate and effective interview questions will help you assess a candidate's theoretical and technical knowledge of Ubuntu software development, problem-solving abilities, creativity, and ability to work under pressure. Below are some sample interview questions for Ubuntu developers.

What is Ubuntu Advantage?

This question will help you assess the candidate's knowledge of Ubuntu and its products. The candidate should explain that Ubuntu Advantage is a package of services and support purchased to help maintain, troubleshoot, and secure an Ubuntu-supported system.

Which elements does Ubuntu cloud architecture use?

This is a technical question to test the candidate's knowledge of Ubuntu cloud architecture. The candidate should mention elements such as Cluster, Elastic block, Node, and Walrus. They should also explain how these elements interact with each other.

What are the key differences between Windows and Ubuntu?

This question assesses the candidate's understanding of operating systems and their knowledge of Ubuntu. They should mention key differences such as user interface, cost, security, installation process, and available applications. They should also explain how these differences affect user experience with each operating system.
