Why hire a Kubernetes developer?

In today’s world, most companies have code-based needs that require developers to help build and maintain. For instance, if your business has a website or an app, you’ll need to keep it updated to ensure you continue to provide positive user experiences. At times, you may even need to revamp your website or app. This is where hiring a developer becomes crucial.

Depending on the stage and scale of your product and services, you may need to hire a Kubernetes developer, multiple developers, or even a full remote developer team to help keep your business running. If you’re a startup or a company running a website, your product will likely grow out of its original skeletal structure. Hiring full-time remote Kubernetes developers can help keep your website up-to-date.

How do I hire Kubernetes developers?

To hire a Kubernetes developer, you need to go through a hiring process of defining your needs, posting a job description, screening resumes, conducting interviews, testing candidates’ skills, checking references, and making an offer.

Arc offers three services to help you hire Kubernetes developers effectively and efficiently. Hire full-time Kubernetes developers from a vetted candidates pool, with new options every two weeks, and pay through prepaid packages or per hire. Alternatively, hire the top 2.3% of expert freelance Kubernetes engineers in 72 hours, with weekly payments.

If you’re not ready to commit to the paid plans, our free job posting service is for you. By posting your job on Arc, you can reach up to 250,000 developers around the world. With that said, the free plan will not give you access to pre-vetted Kubernetes developers.

Furthermore, we’ve partnered with compliance and payroll platforms Deel and Remote to make paperwork and hiring across borders easier. This way, you can focus on finding the right Kubernetes developer for your company, and let Arc handle the logistics.

Where do I hire the best remote Kubernetes developers?

There are two types of platforms you can hire Kubernetes programmers from: general and niche marketplaces. General platforms like Upwork, Fiverr, and Gigster offer a variety of non-vetted talents unlimited to developers. While you can find Kubernetes developers on general platforms, top tech talents generally avoid general marketplaces in order to escape bidding wars.

If you’re looking to hire the best remote Kubernetes developers, consider niche platforms like Arc that naturally attract and carefully vet their Kubernetes developers for hire. This way, you’ll save time and related hiring costs by only interviewing the most suitable remote Kubernetes developer candidates.

Some factors to consider when you hire Kubernetes developers include the platform’s specialty, developer’s geographical location, and the service’s customer support. Depending on your hiring budget, you may also want to compare the pricing and fee structure.

Make sure to list out all of the important factors when you compare and decide on which remote developer job board and platform to use to find Kubernetes developers for hire.

How do I write a Kubernetes developer job description?

Writing a good Kubernetes developer job description is crucial in helping you hire Kubernetes programmers that your company needs. A job description’s key elements include a clear job title, a brief company overview, a summary of the role, the required duties and responsibilities, and necessary and preferred experience. To attract top talent, it's also helpful to list other perks and benefits, such as flexible hours and health coverage.

Crafting a compelling job title is critical as it's the first thing that job seekers see. It should offer enough information to grab their attention and include details on the seniority level, type, and area or sub-field of the position.

Your company description should succinctly outline what makes your company unique to compete with other potential employers. The role summary for your remote Kubernetes developer should be concise and read like an elevator pitch for the position, while the duties and responsibilities should be outlined using bullet points that cover daily activities, tech stacks, tools, and processes used.

For a comprehensive guide on how to write an attractive job description to help you hire Kubernetes programmers, read our Software Engineer Job Description Guide & Templates.

What skills should I look for in a Kubernetes engineer?

The top five technical skills Kubernetes developers should possess include proficiency in programming languages, understanding data structures and algorithms, experience with databases, familiarity with version control systems, and knowledge of software testing and debugging.

Meanwhile, the top five soft skills are communication, problem-solving, time management, attention to detail, and adaptability. Effective communication is essential for coordinating with clients and team members, while problem-solving skills enable Kubernetes developers to analyze issues and come up with effective solutions. Time management skills are important to ensure projects are completed on schedule, while attention to detail helps to catch and correct issues before they become bigger problems. Finally, adaptability is crucial for Kubernetes developers to keep up with evolving technology and requirements.

Arc has a rigorous and transparent vetting process for all types of developers. To become a vetted Kubernetes developer for hire on Arc, developers must pass a profile screening, complete a behavioral interview, and pass a technical interview or pair programming.

While Arc has a strict vetting process for its verified Kubernetes developers, if you’re using Arc’s free job posting plan, you will only have access to non-vetted developers.

For instance, if you're looking on general marketplaces like Upwork and Fiverr, you can find Kubernetes developers for hire at as low as $10 per hour.
