Do You Have What It Takes?
Our ideal candidates possess stellar soft skills, including excellent communication and presentation abilities, a contagious passion and excitement for technology, and a drive that leads them to pursue projects outside the classroom or office. We want to see you participating in local tech meet-ups, making contributions to Open Source projects, or building a home lab.
The Boot Camp requires an existing set of technical skills. Most successful candidates have at least 2 years of hands-on, professional experience in Systems Administration, DevOps Engineering, and/or Software Development.
Part of the application process involves an in-depth technical interview where you will be given the chance to show what you know and demonstrate your technical chops. The key skills measured in this interview include scripting (Python, Ruby, etc.), Linux Systems, Cloud (AWS, Google Cloud, Azure), and other DevOps skills (Configuration Management, Containers, CI/CD, etc.). While you don’t need to be an expert across the board, a base-level in each is required.
“While I worked towards my learning goals Taos was taking care of finding me the right client engagement that would showcase my new skills and find continued professional success. The Taos DevOps Boot Camp has absolutely short-circuited my previous 5-year plan, putting me significantly ahead of what I thought possible.”
