When you need to hire a DevOps engineer

DevOps is a methodology for optimization of all software life cycle processes. Recruiting DevOps engineers allows dedicating a scope of tasks related to ensuring close cooperation between development teams to optimize their workflows and, as a result, helping reduce the time for which the software product gets to the end-user.

DevOps is considered a supporting option, which turns out to be a surprise for business people when they have to allocate a budget for something that isn’t a product. However, sooner or later, digital products with multiple environments will require improvements in software development productivity. System scaling or distribution is also a cause to hire a DevOps developer. Thus, experienced DevOps engineers can save time by automating repetitive manual processes related to release management, project builds, or testing by employing the centralized nature of cloud computing.

Key benefits of recruiting DevOps engineers for your business

Still not sure why you should engage DevOps professionals in your project? We have prepared some convincing arguments that will dispel your doubts.

Flexibility and reduced costs

Automated processes are faster and, as a result, less expensive. It is reasonable to recruit DevOps engineers when your digital product has launched, or at least three developers work on the project.

Business resilience

Get stability and predictability of deployment to the project. Reduce the risks of integration with third-party services and get a customized CI/CD process.

Effortless scaling

Cloudification is at the heart of most companies’ corporate objectives. Digital visioners prefer to find Java developers who will be the right fit for their implementation goals. Pre-vetted dedicated Java programmers with years of experience in Aimprosoft are ready to deliver web applications accessed from anywhere.

Security improvement

Successful use cases from our vetted DevOps engineers

Interested in learning how Aimprosoft DevOps experts participate in project creation? Luckily, we have prepared a few examples so you could explore our professionals at work.

Complex IoT-powered smart home solution

Challenge: Our specialists were hired to cover infrastructure planning and setting up in AWS

Solution: Our DevOps professionals set up in AWS using IaaC (Terraform, Terragrunt). Amazon Web Services (IoT core, AppSync, Timestream Database, IAM, Lambda, SNS, SES). As a unit testing, a bash-script was created that pulls a template from the project, checks syntax, and calls the TaskCat tool to check if the deployment was successful.

Sector Edge: analytics platform for the do-it-yourself investors

Challenge: Architecture design, the transformation of raw data, and extraction of valuable market insights for the do-it-yourself investor analytics platform. Apart from the product development, the client decided to engage our DevOps specialists to ensure a seamless development cycle.

Solution: We created AWS infrastructure using Terraform (ECS FARGATE, CloudFront, QuickSight, ElastiCache), developed CI/CD pipelines for frontend and backend microservices deployment using CodeBuild, and migrated existing infrastructure to container-based solutions with zero downtime. The project is now under Aimprosoft’s support.

SaaS solution for service inventory planning

Challenge: Our DevOps were engaged in the project as a part of the dedicated team to contribute to the transformation of the legacy system designed for inventory planning.

Solution: Aimprosoft DevOps engineers developed an AWS Cognito/Cloudfront-based solution for non-AWS users for uploading media files into a secured S3 bucket and created CodePipeline CI/CD automated deployment of further changes to the stack.

Automated CI/CD pipeline solutions (Jenkins, Bitbucket) for existing React/Python/Java microservices, CI/CD for automated tests of the UI part, and serverless AWS Lambda-based solutions for automated reporting have accelerated the system. A full-scale “lift-and-shift” migration of over 100 Linux/Windows servers from an on-premises environment into Amazon Web Services, along with their further optimization and upgrade.

HomeLike: online booking service for long rentals

Challenge: HomeLike is a corporate housing platform that allows companies and tenants to take advantage of the functionality of real estate services fully. The client opted for Aimprosoft to hire the entire dedicated team to enhance the existing project with modern technologies and extend its functionality.

Solution: We used Amazon Web Services as a cloud vendor to perform DevOps services for scaling and continuous integration. Kubernetes (EKS), EC2, WAF, Cloudwatch, Nginx, and MongoDB were used as utilities and services. AWS infrastructure was created based on Terraform. CircleCI formed the ground of CI/CD and improved current processes. Existed EKS implementation was checked and we fixed issues and conducted upgrades of EKS and underlying nodes. Created and maintained production-level AWS WAF to address numerous network traffic issues and provide full observability over incoming network flow.
