The software cannot operate normally without proper back-end support. To ensure this, you need to have an experienced back-end developer on the team. According to research, back-end developer hiring grew by 37% in 2020. This testifies to the enormous popularity and demand for this type of developer. Hiring a freelance back-end developer is the best option if you want to receive high-quality services at an affordable rate. In this article, we will try to help you choose the best candidate who can perfectly fit into your team.
All back-end developers can be divided into three groups. The choice of which freelancer you need should be based on the complexity of the project as well as your in-house technical expertise.
In most cases, a junior back-end developer has only 0-2 years of experience and almost always works as a back-end assistant. While most junior back-end developers do not have a lot of experience, they have enough skills and knowledge to identify and address common barriers when building servers or databases.
We don’t advise hiring junior back-end freelancers if you don’t have a senior developer on your team. You can delegate repetitive tasks to juniors, however, these developers wouldn’t be able to have a complex approach to problem-solving so they need a more experienced professional to manage them.
A good middle back-end developer can analyze your business goals, project budget and suggest several alternatives for solving problems that are gradually emerging.
Middle back-end developers also have valuable experience and skills that they have been able to acquire while serving various websites, software, and database servers. They are much better versed in the development process in general than juniors, for example.
Although these professionals can successfully set up systems of medium complexity, you’d still need a senior developer for more challenging tasks.
If you need someone in your company who can manage and execute complex projects, as well as a huge set of skills and many years of experience, only a senior back-end developer is right for you. The experience of this category of developers is more than five years. This person is not only a very experienced back-end developer who can do his job quickly and efficiently but also knows how to manage your software development team to ensure that the project is completed on time.
Senior back-end developers do not require much supervision and can support the workflow on their own. It is for these reasons that senior back-end developers are immensely popular among many startups.
Before hiring a freelance backend developer, you need to understand what skills experienced back-end developers have to be able to hire a real professional. Below we have provided a list of skills that every developer should possess.
A great developer should have an in-depth understanding of at least one popular back-end technology such as Python, Ruby, PHP, Java, C, Node.js as well as be able to easily work with their libraries and frameworks.
Back-end developers are responsible for not only creating the software but also for optimizing its speed and efficiency. So a good back-end freelancer should possess experience working with popular databases such as MySQL, MongoDB, and PostgreSQL.
To establish a stable and secure data interchange between your software and other platforms, API integration is needed. A good back-end developer should have an understanding of the work principles of the popular APIs such as REST and SOAP.
An experienced back-end developer should be able to perform several specific functions. Each company has its requirements and needs, and therefore the list of responsibilities that a back-end developer must perform is very different. We have provided a few basic responsibilities that a back-end developer should be able to perform:
Hiring not only developers but also any employee is a rather complex process that requires a lot of time, which could be spent on more important tasks, for example, developing a new product.
