DevOps Interview Warmup Questions

19 Comments



There are a few basic kinds of open-ended warmup questions that tech interviewers like to ask. These are the most popular ones that I’ve used (and had used on me).

      My preferred distribution is probably Linux Mint in a 64-bit and I prefer the terminal emulator to go into the basement of what I call the root and to do some modifications and my background is in Network Administration with Windows NT. Since that time I've been a diehard Linux user. I was also used UNIX where it was the only OS that if you threw a telephone book at the keyboard you'd come up with a valid command..

      One of my favorite warm-up questions is "Describe your favorite situation, when you're totally fucked up?"

      Let's be honest, we all have at least one ๐Ÿ™‚

      The question I got asked was "Do you have experience building infrastructure", like wtf kind of question is that I wouldn't be here applying for this job If I didn't. I don't what that question is supposed to entail.

      As I have found over the years I'm really more interested in the people part of IT like training and policies. I also do love problem solving but I'm struggling to get interested in coding like I was in my youth. I mostly just script and write SQL

      I can attest to all these questions. I just did a bunch of rounds of interviews for various companies in various industries targeting Dev Ops Engineer or SRE roles. Currently, I just started an SRE role at a SaaS company. All of these questions came up in at least one of the interviews I had. Great content! The accuracy is spot on.
