      Frequently Asked Questions

      • How much does it cost to hire a Kubernetes expert?

        The cost of Kubernetes consulting depends on several key factors. They include the engineer’s seniority, education, location, and current skill set. With that in mind, you can hire a senior Kubernetes developer in the US for $73 to $100 per hour.

        When working with Kubernetes consulting companies like MindK, you also have to take into account the company’s size and the type of engagement. A good range to target is between 50 and 99 USD per hour. Go lower and you’ll probably be sacrificing quality for minuscule cost savings. Above that, the increases in quality might not be worth the salt.

      • How to ensure the engineer's CV matches their real skills?

        MindK has a multi-step vetting process that eliminates 96% of candidates based on their technical and soft skills. Those who passed the final interview, go on to work with a perfect track record for 5 years on average. But you don’t have to trust our words. Feel free to run as many interviews as needed and give your own test assignments to ensure the right fit for your company. 

      • Do your Kubernetes experts developers have good English and soft skills?

        First of all, we’ve implemented a rigorous pre-vetting process to ensure all candidates have good English and soft skills. Our developers work daily on international projects, participate in Sprint plannings with clients and demo the projects to stakeholders. This helps them grow soft skills, along with regular English lessons.

        We cultivate four key values:

        • Get things done. We take initiative to offer solutions instead of passively complaining about problems.
        • Self-management. We don’t hire a boss or two for each project. Our engineers kick themselves up every day to do the job because they know how and why. 
        • Relentless strive for self-realization. Each Mindkicker strives to become a professional in their field on their own initiative, not because they are forced.
        • Positive thinking. Life is all about overcoming challenges and obstacles. A positive attitude helps us solve problems without dwelling on them.
      • Can your Kubernetes engineers join and take over mid-project?

        Sure thing!

      • How fast can you start working on my project?

        The entire process usually takes around 2 weeks from first contact to the start of work.

      • Is there a minimum term for a contract with MindK?

        There’s no minimum term for a contract when hiring Kubernetes consultants at MindK. However, if you’d like the chosen specialist to continue working full-time on your project, the minimum term can vary between 3 and 6 months.
