What does a Cloud Engineer do?
Cloud engineering is a relatively new field and there is a lot of confusion about what cloud engineers actually do. In general, cloud engineers are responsible for designing, building and maintaining cloud-based systems. They work with customers to understand their needs and design solutions to meet those needs. Cloud Engineers also work with other members:inside the team to ensure that applications are properly deployed and managed, and to ensure that the system is stable and secure. In the process, troubleshooting can take up quite a bit of a cloud engineer's day.
What does a Cloud Engineer need to know?
A cloud engineer must be proficient in a variety of programming languages and have an in-depth understanding of cloud-based systems. In particular, they may have to come up with the best way to use certain programming languages when creating cloud-based applications. For example, they may have to know how to use Java to create scalable web applications. They must also be familiar with different DevOps tools to automate the deployment and management of cloud-based systems. Furthermore, they should also have a good understanding of how to use various cloud-based storage solutions, such as Amazon S3 or Google Cloud Storage. Also being familiar with different monitoring and logging tools, such as New Relic or Splunk, to troubleshoot issues with cloud-based systems is often a requirement.
Why are Cloud Engineers in such demand?
Cloud engineers are in high demand because more and more businesses are moving a lot of their operations to the cloud. Companies need experts who have the skills to manage and maintain cloud-based systems because their business relies heavily on running smoothly and reliably in the cloud. Another value cloud engineers provide is that they have experience with a variety of programming languages and tools that can be used to build cloud-based applications. As a result, they can provide valuable insights to companies that are looking to implement or improve their own cloud-based operations. And that is something usually a data scientist brings to the table.
How does alphacoders find qualified Cloud Engineers?
"What makes cloud engineers tick?" When searching for the ideal candidate, most German businesses are perplexed by this criteria. Since there are so few applicants on the market, companies are happy to use headhunters. Finding the appropriate employee requires that the recruiter understand what a potential applicant is capable of, but also what drives him or her. If you want to find a great cloud engineer, learn their language. Remember: not every cloud engineer is the same when you are looking to fill this position.

What our partners say about our cooperation
The cornerstone of the cooperation with CareerTeam was an efficient exchange and open, honest feedback. We were very satisfied with their fast and effective search.
With the help of alphacoders recruiting experts, we were able to successfully fill several challenging roles in our digitalization, IT and purchasing departments. The collaboration was always characterized by very good advice, open communication and maximum transparency. We are looking forward to the next joint projects with alphacoders!
Together with alphacoders, we were looking for and hired a NAV developer. The special thing about this was the complexity of the market situation: it is a very special position with a very narrow pool of candidates and a very loyal target group. We solved it through trusting and effective communication and adjustments to the profile. One key was certainly that we opened up for a fully remote position and were thus able to find and successfully recruit the right candidate.
We have already commissioned alphacoders twice to support us in tech recruiting and they convinced us with the first candidate for both positions (frontend & fullstack developer). The cooperation was very uncomplicated, at eye level and characterized by direct communication. We are very happy to have alphacoders on our side.
We have been working successfully with alphacoders for some time. What I personally like very much is the uncomplicated and personal exchange, as well as the quick occupation time, which has only lasted an average of 3 months so far. alphacoders understands their trade and we are very happy to have them on our team.
Professional and goal-oriented, I would work with alphacoders again at any time. I've recommended them both internally to other departments and to external stakeholders.
Working with alphacoders was our first experience with a recruiter. We particularly liked the transparent communication and the summary of the search in the form of reports and figures. This helped us to better understand the candidate market and gain deeper insights into recruitment from IT specialists. We can recommend alphacoders 100%.
We really enjoyed working with alphacoders, it was a professional collaboration on an equal footing right from the start. alphacoders puts itself very well in the client's position and thanks to the regular agreements it always ran smoothly. We have successfully recruited a senior Phyton developer with alphacoders and would recommend alphacoders to others.
When looking for qualified employees, we like to rely on specialists. They know the market and the target group and can advise accordingly. So it happens that we have been working with alphacoders since February 2020 and have been able to expand our development team several times. We have found the right service provider for us
Very professional, always transparent and honest cooperation. Extremely good understanding of the market including recommendations for action. Completely different approach than classic recruiting agencies.
Together with alphacoders, we were looking for and hired a PL/SQL developer. Thanks to the professional support of alphacoders, we were able to fill the position in a very short time. The fact that we worked very closely with the tech recruiters and that we had the same understanding of the market and the special requirements played a major role in our success. We would recommend alphacoders at any time.
Last year we worked with alphacoders for the first time. The cooperation was characterised by professional and very personal support, as well as profound contacts within our target group. What was special for us was that we were actually only looking for one PHP developer, but because of the but due to the suitable selection of candidates we directly hired 2 developers and that within only 3 months. We would recommend alphacoders at any time.
We have been working with alphacoders for more than 2 years now and have had very good experiences so far. The relationship is characterised by trust, solution-oriented advice and open communication at eye level. Through their input, we have already been able to successfully hire 2 backend developers and also rely on their expertise for further tech positions.
With alphacoders we have found a strong partner for our tech recruiting. The feedback loops were short and efficient. Our company, our tech vision and our requirement profile were quickly understood and implemented. The management of the interview process went fabulous for us as well as for the candidates.
We have commissioned alphacoders to search for 2 web developers. The challenge is that we are active in a special niche in e-commerce with the topic of equestrian sports and ideally the ideal candidate should also identify with our sport. In addition to good communication and consultation, we jointly implemented an effective hiring process. alphacoders not only managed to attract many women for this position, but we even managed to hire someone with a love for our sport. We were able to fill both positions with alphacoders and would hire them again anytime.
alphacoders has become an integral part of our tech recruiting. We have been working together for over 2 years now and have already been able to successfully fill several different positions in IT. As a startup, we very much appreciate the all-encompassing advice from profile sharpening to candidate selection and support in optimising our own internal hiring process. We are very happy to have alphacoders at our side.
