How to Hire Top Developers

How to Hire Top Developers

Whether you’re building a website, a mobile app, or a software-as-a-service (SaaS) enterprise application, you’ll need a developer who is familiar with the technology and programming languages needed to bring your project to life.

So how do you hire developers? What follows are some tips for finding top development consultants on Upwork.

How to shortlist development professionals

As you’re browsing available development consultants, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the professionals you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as:

  • Technology fit. You want a developer who understands the languages, developer tools, and technologies needed to bring your software project to life.
  • Project experience. Screen candidate profiles for specific skills and experience (e.g., an ASP.NET developer experienced with microservices).
  • Feedback. Check reviews from past clients for glowing testimonials or red flags that can tell you what it’s like to work with a particular developer.

How to write an effective developer job post

With a clear picture of your ideal developer in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

Job post title

Create a simple title that describes exactly what you’re looking for. The idea is to target the keywords that your ideal candidate is likely to type into a job search bar to find your project. Here are some sample developer job post titles:

  • Seeking a React developer to build a dynamic SPA
  • Mobile developer needed for cross-platform app (Ionic)
  • Need a full-stack developer for an enterprise app built with Oracle

Developer project description

An effective developer job post should include:

  • Scope of work: From mobile apps to websites, list all the deliverables you’ll need.
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project.
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain industries, software, or developer tools, mention this here.
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

Developer responsibilities

Here are some examples of developer job responsibilities:

  • Design, develop, and deploy software
  • Test and debug code and third-party integrations
  • Translate technical specifications into functioning code
  • Update and maintain software post-production

Developer requirements and qualifications

Be sure to include any requirements and qualifications you’re looking for in a developer:

  • Proficiency in desired programming languages (e.g., PHP, Python, Java, JavaScript)
  • Experience with desired version control system (e.g., GitHub, GitLab, SourceForge)
  • Proficiency with desired software test suite (e.g., Selenium, Karma, Jira)
  • Familiarity with SDLC (software development life cycle)

Developers FAQ

What is a developer?

A developer is one who designs and builds software applications. Software development can cover everything from websites to mobile apps to the code running on embedded systems such as microcontrollers and IoT devices. That’s why it’s important to narrow your developer search to the specific technical needs of your software development project.

How much does it cost to hire a developer?

The first step to determining the cost to hire a developer will be to define your needs. Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

Cost factor #1: project scope

The first variable to consider when determining scope is the nature of the work that needs to be completed. Not all development projects are created equal. Creating a simple WordPress website for your small business will typically take less time than building a secure enterprise SaaS app that services thousands of customers.

Tip: The more accurately your job description describes the scope of your project, the easier it will be for talent to give you accurate cost estimates and proposals.

Cost factor #2: developer experience

Choosing the right level of expertise for the job is closely tied to how well you determined the scope of your project. You wouldn’t need an advanced developer to build a simple UI component for your landing page. On the other hand, adding augmented reality (AR) or virtual reality (VR) capabilities to a cross-platform mobile app will require specialized skills.

Beyond experience level, you need to consider the type of experience the talent possesses. The following table breaks down the rates of the typical types of developer you can find on Upwork.

Rates charged by developers on Upwork

Types of Developers

Description

Hourly Rate

Web developers

Front-end, back-end, or full-stack developers experienced with building websites and dynamic single-page apps (SPAs). May use site builders such as WordPress or front-end frameworks such as Angular and React.

$30-90+

Software developers

Developers experienced with building SaaS projects, enterprise apps, and desktop applications. Experienced with C#, Java, or Python and software development platforms such as ASP.NET, Oracle, and AWS.

$30-90+

Mobile developers

Developers experienced with building mobile apps for iOS, Android, or both. Experience with languages such as Swift for iOS or Java for Android and cross-platform frameworks such as React Native and Ionic.

$30-90+

Cost factor #3: location

Location is another variable that can impact a developer’s cost. It’s no secret that you can leverage differences in purchasing power between countries to gain savings on talent. But it’s also important to factor in hidden costs such as language barriers, time zones, and the logistics of managing a remote team. The real advantage to sourcing talent remotely on Upwork is the ability to scan a global talent pool for the best possible person for the job. Location is no longer an obstacle.

Cost factor #4: independent contractor vs. agency

The final variable regarding talent cost is hiring an independent contractor vs. an agency. An agency is often a “one size fits all” model, so you’ll often have access to a designer, a project manager, an engineer, and more. When hiring individuals you have total autonomy regarding who is responsible for which part of the project, but you’ll need to source each of those skills separately.

The trade-off between hiring individuals vs. hiring an agency is the level of administrative overhead you incur personally in coordinating tasks among all members of the team. Project scope and personal preference will determine which style is a better fit for your needs.

Developer Tips and Best Practices

Consider test-driven development

Encourage unit tests during development and regression testing before deployment. A well-documented test suite that grows with your application will ensure you’re able to update and maintain your application with minimal downtime and disruptions. It’s better to catch code-breaking changes before you push a build to production.

Consider adopting TDD (test-driven development), an Agile development methodology that involves writing code iteratively in three steps:

  • Red: Write a test for a software feature that fails
  • Green: Write the minimum code needed to pass the test
  • Refactor: Rewrite your passing code to best practices

Not only will TDD help you maximize your test coverage, but it will also encourage your development team to write well-documented, modular, reusable code.

Write DRY code

“Don’t repeat yourself” is generally good advice to follow no matter what type of software you are developing. If you find yourself repeating the same piece of code over and over again, it’s a good sign you could probably refactor that code into a more efficient implementation.

You can expand the DRY principle to the rest of your SDLC by automating repetitive tasks such as server provisioning and the configuration of cloud resources.

Stick to naming conventions and best practices

Whether you’re a Java developer, a Python specialist, or a C# programmer, official documentation is a good place to look for naming conventions and best practices. Naming conventions, error messaging, proper code documentation, and other best practices make collaborating across distributed teams easier.

Following common code guidelines and conventions for your developer ecosystem will make it easier for you to slide into the developer workflows of different clients and projects. This improves collaboration and prevents unnecessary conflicts and mistakes.
