Why should you pick Ruby on Rails for your next web project?
As Ruby on Rails is distributed under the MIT license, you don’t have to pay a single dollar for it. The technology is completely free, allowing you to significantly cut costs on this important part of the development process.
Ruby on Rails developers have access to tens of thousands of the so-called gems (small scripts covering specific functionalities) and other ready-to-use solutions that speed up the website/web app building process.
The Ruby on Rails framework is a great choice for fast-paced startups. The technology can be implemented in the early days of the project and later easily scaled when things go well for your company.
Being constantly updated and supported by its huge community, Ruby on Rails is a great choice when you need to keep both your project as well as its users secured from any potential intrusions and hacks.
Being one of the most popular web development technologies, Ruby on Rails comes to the attention of many people who wish to change their career paths and become coders themselves. As the market is getting more and more crowded, it’s important to always try to find professional Ruby on Rails developers with proper experience and skills.
With this mind, we decided to prepare a short guide on how to hire Ruby on Rails developers who will perfectly fit your company and/or project.
The list of most important hard/tech skills a good Ruby on Rails developer should have includes:
With web projects not anymore being only simple websites but rather highly complicated software, web development requires now proper teamwork and isn’t necessarily a good job for loners. Even if you are just launching your startup and don’t plan to hire dozens of people at the moment, it’s important to get ready for what future brings and fill your team with Ruby on Rails web developers who can work with others well.
The list of soft skills your new dev should have included:
When you look at the CV sent to you by a Ruby on Rails developer, you should not only look at how long they have been on the market and on how many projects they have worked. It’s also important to consider how these past projects fit your company and what you want to achieve.
Most importantly, look for Ruby on Rails developers who have already worked on websites or web apps similar to yours. There are a number of devs who focus on specific industries or types of web software, be it e-commerce, fintech, travel apps, or others.
But the company fit doesn’t end there. You might also want to consider the size of your company. If you are running a rather fresh startup, you may prefer an expert who can lead the technological side of your project by themselves. Enterprises, on the other hand, can often allow themselves to hire someone less experienced to be later trained by their in-house team.
Interviewing Ruby on Rails developers might be a complicated task as some part of the process should include technical questions that will give you an idea of one’s understanding of the technology. Because of this, we highly encourage you to have an experienced dev who will help you out during the interview process. Alternatively, you can choose an IT Project Manager with experience in Ruby on Rails projects.
To get you ready for what’s coming, here are some sample questions that might be asked during the interview:
Ruby on Rails developers often use a code smell detector when working on projects. One of the most popular ones is Reek.
Even more technical, Ruby on Rails-specific interview questions can be:
If you wish to cut your spendings, you can also consider hiring a freelance Ruby on Rails developer from a country where costs of living are lower. We especially recommend having a look at Central Europe, including countries like Poland, Ukraine, and Romania. The region is full of vastly experienced and world-renowned coders who, thanks to being based in an area with relatively low costs of living, can be hired for much less than developers from Western Europe or the United States.
Even the most experienced Ruby on Rails developer won’t be able to run the project by themselves. To build a product that will bring true value to customers, you need to assemble a team of professionals from multiple fields: designers who will take care of the look and feel of your software, product owners and project managers who will watch over the whole process, and even data analytics experts who can review your users’ behavior.
To get these people on board fast, contact our team at Ideamotive. We built a pool of great talents from the IT world and we always get you in touch only with those who perfectly match your company and product.
