Hiring for DevOps Engineers is not always so difficult.  Some companies consider a Linux Admin who has experience with automation tools like Puppet, Chef, or Ansible a DevOps Engineer.  While other businesses, which are further along the road, require their DevOps Engineers to be Software Engineers who love automation, to put it simply.

Ultimately, you are looking for someone who has the “DevOps” mindset along with the tech chops to go along with it. It’s not all about the money.  The types of problems that need to be solved and the technology available to solve them can be way more valuable to a potential new hire than just money.
