Your Cloud Computing recruitment questions, answered

Is it hard to find Cloud professionals in Hong Kong SAR right now? 

Yes. The past few years have accelerated many organisations’ switch to cloud computing. This means demand for Cloud professionals – in all sectors and industries – is very high. That’s where we come in.  

What should I look for in a Cloud professional when hiring? 

Generally speaking, find out the level of experience the candidate has with your organisation’s technology stack, and try to get a thorough understanding of the projects they were involved in and to what extent.  
 
A university degree in Computer Science, Technology or similar is a nice to have for junior professionals, but practical skills in AWS, Azure or public Cloud skills, plus a few years of first-hand experience working in Cloud Computing, are more important. 
 
Equally, when looking for great DevOps engineers whose code will help your business release products and software effectively and efficiently, ensure they come from a developer background (either proprietary or open source), with an in-depth and provable understanding of developer practices. 
 
Soft skills are what really separates Cloud and DevOps professionals who will really take your business to new heights: the ability to manage technical teams, but also to communicate challenges and solutions to senior stakeholders in both technical and non-technical disciplines. 

How can I assess a Cloud professional to make sure I hire the right person? 

 
The first priority is to identify if they are technical or strategic Cloud professionals and ensure the candidate you have fits your company’s infrastructure and growth roadmap.  
 
While technical skills and qualifications are easily understood from a CV, soft skills are best assessed during an interview. Make it conversational, and ask about challenges they have overcome, solutions they have implemented and how these experiences may be transferable to your organisation. 
 
Ask if they are committed to learning about the latest Cloud developments and how they do this, to discover if they have a ‘growth mindset’.
