How to Become a Freelance DevOps Engineer

Do you have a passion for programming, automation, and optimization? Do you like to get involved with complex software projects and help steer teams through the use of streamlined tools and workflows?

Find the jobs you’re looking for with freelance DevOps engineer positions on Upwork.

What does a DevOps engineer do?

Freelance DevOps engineers are very familiar with software development life cycles.

DevOps comes from the shortening of development and operations, which means that DevOps engineers are concerned with both the development of software and the operational process by which that software is developed.

A freelance DevOps engineer may have a wide range of responsibilities within a software engineering project. They may be responsible for choosing the tools and workflows for new projects, or they may be tasked with analyzing and optimizing existing toolsets and workflows to help improve developer and project efficiency.

What skills do I need to become a freelance DevOps engineer?

Freelance DevOps engineers do not typically require any formal qualifications, but candidates must have a broad base of knowledge regarding software engineering principles and programming best practices.

DevOps engineers are concerned with the build, deployment, and operation of software projects, which means they need to be familiar with a lot of technical information.

Common skills a DevOps engineer should possess include:

  • Knowledge of one or more programming languages such as Python and Java
  • Understanding of the software development workflow and toolchains such as Kubernetes, Microsoft Azure, and Jenkins
  • Knowledge of how to use tools to monitor operations and enhance performance
  • Familiarity with security and compliance procedures along with configuration management
  • Experience with open-source software provisioning with Ansible, for example
  • An account of automation tools for various aspects of development and maintenance

What are the job responsibilities of a DevOps engineer?

DevOps engineers are often responsible for several aspects of a software project.

One of the primary responsibilities will be programming, but DevOps engineers also spend time running tools to monitor and analyze operations to maintain them and find inefficiencies. DevOps engineers work as part of a larger team and are responsible for reporting their findings to other team members, depending on their role.

Typical responsibilities include:

  • Ensuring all automated tools and workflows work smoothly and fixing any that don’t
  • Cloud computing with services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Monitoring existing projects to spot any errors and report them to relevant personnel
  • Continuous integration and continuous delivery or continuous deployment (CI/CD) with DevOps tools
  • Fixing errors in the build, deployment, testing, and debugging stages of development
  • Installing, configuring, scripting, and maintaining new and existing infrastructure as required
  • Working with development teams, system administrators, and other operations teams
