Senior DevOps Engineer was asked...November 15, 2013

How do you stay organized? Describe tools and techniques.

3 Answers

I use Outlook for email, contacts, calendar, and tasks in the work environment, and I use OneNote to collect and search through important notes. With my smartphone I use Google's calendar, gmail, and search. Less

Trello for managing/limiting work in progress; focusing on one task at a time. Don't use email at all if you can help it. Use Slack for team communication as it links with Trello effectively. Keep all of your code in GitHub and commit+push often to track changes. Don't be someone responsible for releasing software; be someone who enables teams to release via services or automation you provide. Work hard to keep from being a bottleneck or gatekeeper of environments. Don't keep secrets or build silos of knowledge. The mindset you adopt will enable you to uplift others and enable better communication across your team and organization. Less

Choose carefully what you put your attention on and resist the urge to multitask. Choose your top 2 or 3 skill areas and focus on cultivating them. Tools like Outlook are not helpful for DevOps. Shut it off for long periods of time each day. Less

I was asked to to participate in several thought experiments. They were cleverly designed for you to showcase your skillset.

2 Answers

I really just provided honest input during the thought experiments, and this demonstrated my proficiency with the concepts and software involved in the thought experiments. Less

Through questions like this, interviewers are mostly trying to test your skillset (and its relevance to the role) as robustly as possible, so be prepared for multiple offshoots and followups. It could be a useful exercise to do mocks with friends or colleagues in Imgur to get a real sense of what the interview is actually like. Alternatively Prepfully has a ton of Imgur Senior DevOps Engineer experts who provide mock interviews for a pretty reasonable amount. prepfully.com/practice-interviews Less

Ezoic

Are you excited about the role? (Several Times)

2 Answers

Nope.

I believe the correct answer to this is “yes!” That being said, if an interviewer asks you this once, you’re probably in trouble. If an interviewer asks you this (Several Times), it’s probably too late and your answer won’t really matter. Less
