Kubernetes is quickly gaining recognition as the cloud operating system, offering universality and the opportunity for numerous advantages to IT organisations and professionals. In 2017, Kubernetes saw a surge in popularity, with all the major cloud providers providing native Kubernetes services and several container orchestration solutions based on Kubernetes.

Recent research has revealed that the usage of Golang in the workplace is on the rise, with 76 percent of respondents indicating that they are currently utilising the programming language in their professional environment. Furthermore, two-thirds of these respondents acknowledged the importance of Golang for the successful operation of their organisation. Moreover, the survey results demonstrate that Golang is highly satisfactory for those who use it, with 92 percent expressing contentment. Given this widespread acceptance and satisfaction, it is no surprise that the demand for Golang development is at an all-time high. As a consequence, there is an increasing availability of remote engineering positions that focus on Kubernetes/Golang.

What are the duties and obligations of a Kubernetes/Golang engineer?

It is essential for Kubernetes engineers to understand how containers function during runtime, especially when utilising a Kubernetes orchestrator in a production environment. On the other hand, Golang engineers are looked upon to set up and maintain an operational environment with a 99.99% uptime, and to deliver technology services that are cost-effective, reliable, and of high quality to the customers. On obtaining a remote Kubernetes/Golang engineer role, the primary duties include:

  • We will create a Jenkins-based continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) system with multiple component pipelines to accommodate both regular weekly and special out-of-cycle releases. The CI/CD system will enable us to automatically build, test, and deploy software quickly and efficiently, improving our release cycle times and ensuring our software products are of the highest quality.
  • Docker-based deployments, Docker images, Docker Hub and Docker-registries, and Kubernetes experience are required.
  • Lead the move to Chef-based ‘infrastructure as code,’ which includes cookbook design and implementation.
  • Golang programmers should be able to build efficient, scalable, and modular software using the fundamental technologies.
  • The goods that are released must be bug-free; they must be tested, updated, and patched on a regular basis. Golang developers often test their code.

How does one go about becoming a Kubernetes/Golang engineer?

Acquiring the expertise and skills to become a Kubernetes/Golang developer will require a significant commitment of time, effort and patience. One of the most common pathways to get started is to take college-level courses in Kubernetes/Golang programming. However, it should be noted that a degree or certificate in computer science is not mandatory to pursue a career in Kubernetes/Golang development. If you are knowledgeable of the technical stacks, you can easily obtain remote Kubernetes/Golang engineering jobs. The best strategy is to choose a software solution to focus on and to then dedicate yourself to mastering the application of it to different areas and coding challenges.

By developing and honing your coding skills, you will be able to test your technical knowledge in real-world projects and jobs. This is a critical step if you want to demonstrate your talents as a Kubernetes/Golang developer and build a portfolio to show to potential employers. Learning on the job is a key component of this process, and it allows you to develop the necessary skills to succeed in the industry.

Let’s look at the skills and approaches required to be a good Kubernetes/Golang engineer:

Qualifications for becoming a Kubernetes/Golang engineer

In order to become a successful and highly sought-after Kubernetes and Golang engineer, it is essential to have a strong foundation of technical knowledge. To begin your journey, start by familiarising yourself with the necessary skills and understanding that are required to land a high-paying job in this field. We will now discuss the steps you should take in order to become adept with Kubernetes and Golang technologies.

  1. Programming and programming languages

    As a professional engineer, scripting is an essential tool in your toolkit for one simple reason: it enables you to automate processes and complete projects more quickly. If you are not already familiar with scripting, it is important that you begin learning it right away. Additionally, it is highly beneficial to explore other programming languages, such as Python. By employing a new approach to programming, you may find that you can achieve higher levels of productivity and more efficiently solve any issues that arise. It is a critical skill to possess when applying for a job as a remote Kubernetes/Goland engineer.
  2. Cloud architecture and design

    The days of cloud computing being simply limited to renting servers have passed; the technology has evolved to provide a straightforward (or at least comparatively easy) solution to address storage and computing needs. It is now critical to be able to integrate multiple distinct elements, particularly as multi-cloud and hybrid cloud systems become the norm and serverless technology is rapidly gaining traction among leading-edge software developers.
  3. Visit Libraries

    Working with the Go programming language can be made significantly more efficient and straightforward by leveraging the right libraries and packages. Of the most popular libraries for Go, Go Kit, GORM, Gen, and CLI each offer unique characteristics; for this reason, it is recommended to select the library that best meets the desired goals and focus on mastering it. This expertise is in high demand among employers hiring remote Kubernetes/Golang engineers, as they seek candidates who have a deep understanding of these tools.
