Why do You Need a Talented Front-end Developer?

Ensure your product always displays well

Maintain a stable and responsive product, always ready to impress new potential customers. A front-end developer can ensure your website or web app looks great on any browser and system, making it accessible to every user.

Leverage your great designs

Make full use of your stunning layout. Front-end developers can translate your web designer’s ideas into a functioning product, making sure it performs error-free and functions exactly as it should.

Rank High on Google

Secure the technical SEO side of your web product. Professional front-end developers know all the ins and outs of code-related search engine optimization and can help you make your business the online industry leader.

Get mobile-ready

Make your website or web app look stunning on every possible device. Mobile and tablet versions of a web product often need to be adjusted separately to follow all the best practices and front-end developers are the best people to take care of it.

How to Hire a Front-end Developer Perfectly Fitted to Your Project

According to a 2022 survey conducted by Stack Overflow among 60,000 developers, front-end developers are currently the third biggest group of all developers — 25.9 percent of respondents considered themselves front-end devs. Their global number is also growing constantly because most people who get interested in web development start their careers by learning all the basics of front-end, including development in JavaScript.

What does this tell a business looking to invest heavily in its digital product? 

  • There are a lot of front-end web developers for hire...
  • …but a lot of those people are not necessarily as experienced and skillful as you might want them to be.

To help you make a good decision and hire front-end developers who will get the job done in the most effective way, we’ve prepared a guide that explains everything you need to consider during the hiring process.

The main responsibilities of a front-end developer

Front-end developers are responsible for the part of a website visible to a customer — all of the design and functionality. Front-end developers are often put into opposition to back-end developers, who focus on things that are not visible to the customer, such as server maintenance and flow of data.

To truly understand the role of front-end developers on a web production team, it’s best to look at their typical responsibilities. These usually include:

  1. Building the design (or the front-end) of the website, often with the help of a web designer.
  2. Introducing new website features.
  3. Adjusting the website’s design for all popular devices (desktop, phones, tablets).
  4. Optimizing the website’s performance, often in collaboration with back-end developers.
  5. Maintaining the website by, for example, regularly updating/migrating the front-end frameworks to their most recent releases.
  6. Building mockups and prototypes.
  7. Improving design-related SEO.
  8. Testing the site.
  9. Introducing the best UX (user experience) practices to the website.
  10. Writing reusable code, internal libraries and modules/components.

The hard skills to look for in a front-end developer

When you want to hire front-end developers, it’s crucial to assess their technical skills. If they have the desired skill set, they will be able to handle all the previously mentioned responsibilities without a hassle, delivering great web products efficiently.

So what are the most important hard skills to consider when looking for a front-end web developer to hire?

  1. Proficiency in HTML, CSS and JavaScript

    These three languages are the core of front-end development. Knowing them provides the most important base for creating beautiful and user-friendly websites and web apps.

    Additionally, you might also consider looking for front-end developers with knowledge of TypeScript. It’s a superset of JavaScript that introduces a few very useful features (such as real-time code checking) and can be used with some popular front-end frameworks like Angular or React.

  2. Experience with popular front-end frameworks and library

    Is developing a great web product without frameworks and libraries possible? It sure is. But it will take significantly more time and money to write the code for a website from scratch.

    Instead, it’s common for front-developers to speed up the development process with these accessible solutions. Frameworks and libraries are often developed by industry giants like Google (Angular) or Facebook (React), so you can be sure they are trustworthy, proven tools.

  3. Knowledge of design best practices

    As a person working directly on the visuals of a website, a front-end developer must be familiar with all the best practices and current trends in the web design world. This includes experience creating data- and research-based user experience (UX) and user interface (UI).

  4. Knowledge of SEO best practices

    Search engine optimization (SEO) means adjusting the website so it ranks as high as possible on search engines such as Google. This job is partly done by copywriters, as they are the ones preparing text content for the website. But front-end developers also have a number of ways of improving the site’s SEO. If you want to make your product truly successful, it’s crucial to hire front-end developers with SEO knowledge.

The most crucial front-end developer soft skills

But a set of highly technical skills might not be enough to build a great web product in the most efficient way. Soft skills are important, as they support the whole team’s morale and improve cooperation within the company.

What soft skills should you consider when planning to hire front-end developers?

  1. Creativity

    A great eye-catching and user-friendly front-end comes from a mind that can blend engineering craftsmanship with artistic vision. Creativity is the key to building products that really stand out and make interest customers from the first look.

  2. Understanding of the client’s needs

    Creating a well-converting website requires tailoring it to what the customers actually want to see. A front-end developer who is able to put themselves in shoes of a non-tech-savvy person is your best bet to achieve the best results.

  3. Being approachable

    The key to building great relations with colleagues. As front-end developers often have to cooperate with other people and teams in the company (back-end developers, data scientists, product owner), being approachable is a must-have soft skill for them.

Job interview questions to ask a front-end developer

A technical interview is an important part of every developer-related hiring process. If you don’t feel comfortable enough with relevant technology, such as JavaScript or its popular frameworks, it’s best to ask someone else for help in running the interview. Consider another web developer, software consultant or an IT project manager.

To give you an idea of how such a technical interview might look, we’ve listed some of our favorite questions to ask front-end web developers for hire. Please be aware, however, that different front-end developers specialize in different areas of web development, as well as different frameworks — meaning, you should also ask each developer additional questions based on their specialization and your unique needs.

  1. What is the difference between JavaScript’s .call and .apply?
  2. What is the difference between classical inheritance and prototypal inheritance?
  3. What are some ways of hiding content visually while still making it available for screen readers?
  4. CSS pseudo-elements — what are they and what would you use them for?
  5. What is progressive rendering?
  6. Cookie vs. session storage vs. local storage — what is the difference between these three?
  7. What is the difference between the call stack and task queue?
  8. What is event bubbling?
  9. How are JavaScript’s while and do-while loops different?
  10. What are immutable objects? How can you achieve code immutability?

The importance of front-end developer company fit

The cooperation between a new front-end developer and other team members can be improved even more if you consider the company fit in your hiring process. Even if you want to hire a freelance front-end developer who won’t be present in your office, there are three areas of company fit that you should keep in mind.

  1. Industry fit

    Hiring front-end developers with previous experience in your industry gives you the advantage of having a person who already understands your target group who knows the type of web features they want to see.

  2. Product fit

    Whatever kind of web product you have in mind, there are most likely already solutions on the market that are at least partly similar to it. Use this knowledge well and hire front-end developers who previously worked on such products. They will have the necessary experience and deliver the solutions you want faster.

  3. Company culture fit

    Find a front-end developer who will blend in your company with ease. Look for people who share the same values as you and other people at the company and consider things like the preferred style of management, attitude toward remote work, focus on local/global and attitude towards diverse and inclusive work environments.

Beyond front-end

Having a front-end developer hired is only a part of the process of taking your product to the top. You will still need additional people on your team to handle other tasks, such as back-end developers to tackle all the server-side processes, data scientists to research your target group’s needs or an IT project manager who will make sure everything is delivered on time and according to the budget.

Front-end Development FAQ

Front-end developers have one shared responsibility. They should do their best to ensure that software users can easily interact with its functionality. Front-end developers do this by implementing intuitive design, testing its performance and fixing the problems found.

Front-end web developers deal with coding and creating software interface elements, which are  functions that are directly available to the end-user. It’s about creating all the elements of software that the end-user can interact with or click on.

Front-end developers should master the following technologies:

  • HyperText Markup Language (HTML)  
  • JavaScript (JS)  
  • Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) 
  • JavaScript (JS) Libraries (e.g., jQuery)
  • CSS and JS Frameworks (e.g., AngularJS, Bootstrap)  
  • CSS Preprocessors (e.g., Sass, LESS, Stylus)  
  • Performance Testing, Load Testing & Debugging    
  • Object-Oriented Programming    

Practicing front-end development can be compared to playing the bass. Not that hard to learn, but much more difficult to master. It is about much more than learning HTML and CSS. Front-end development techniques are quite difficult to learn and many nuances can only be understood with practice.

Analyze which developer you need: junior, middle or senior. Pay attention to the developer's skills and experience. Interview the candidates and draw up a list of questions that interest you. Give the developer a test task to test their skills in practice.

Front-end developers should be qualified and have deep knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery. They also need to have a deep understanding of how users think. A good developer should always strive to develop and learn something new because front-end development keeps evolving.

Some of the crucial mistakes made during front-end developer hiring include:

  1. Not conducting thorough technical testing or assessments to gauge the candidate's technical abilities.
  2. Hiring a candidate based on skills that don't align with the company's needs and goals.
  3. Overlooking the importance of cultural fit and personality compatibility.
  4. Underestimating the value of experience, even for junior developers.
  5. Neglecting to review the candidate's portfolio or real-world projects to better understand their abilities and work style.

By avoiding these common hiring mistakes, companies can increase their chances of finding the right fit for their front-end development team.
