Nowadays, the market is flooded with beginners after short bootcamps calling themselves “web developers”. While they might be very ambitious and once turn into really good coders, they are not yet experienced enough to handle really important projects. That’s why, when you want to hire web developers, it’s important to look only for those who are able to prove their experience and value.
To make the hiring process easier for you, we decided to create this short guide on how to choose the correct devs for your next project.
What makes you see that the web developer is closer to being a beginner than an advanced expert? Their unsureness when it comes to highlighting their area of expertise. A good web developer is one that chooses and understands their own career path. One that focuses on a specific niche instead of being a coder that claims to be able to handle all the projects possible.
When planning to recruit web developers, look for those who have experience in your industry and the technology you are planning to use.
Planning to create an app for your financial service? Hire web developers who have already worked in fintech startups and/or financial institutions.
Thinking about creating a new booking platform? Look for developers who have experience in working on similar sites and can recommend to you the best ways to turn your idea into reality, possibly in multiple ways.
Or maybe you want to join the ranks of e-commerce entrepreneurs? Then hire web developers with experience in platforms such as Shopify, BigCommerce, or WooCommerce.
They obviously code, you might say. But is that really all?
What a web developer does is slightly different depending on the size of a company. A huge enterprise may be able to hire IT project managers and software consultants who will be able to recommend specific technology to be used for the project. But in smaller startups, this might be actually what web developers do themselves — advise on specific solutions based on the requirements.
In smaller companies, web developers might also play the role of a designer. This could include figuring out the look & feel of the website or web app, preparing mockups, and creating prototypes. That’s also why it’s so important to always hire web developers with an understanding of good design practices, including the basics of UX design.
If you already have an in-house team of web developers and you are just looking to hire some more, you have probably already recommended some solutions and technologies. However, if you don’t have techies at your company, you might prefer to hire a team of experienced web developers and project managers who can do everything for you, including suggesting the technology to be used.
Our recommended technologies are Ruby on Rails, React and Python. While the last one is mostly used for back-end purposes when it comes to developing web apps, the first two are just enough for most websites. Professional web developers use them to build websites and web apps that are well-performing, reliable, and come with rich user experience.
Other technical skills a good web developer should have include:
In the 2020s, data will be everything. Your new hire should, therefore, be able to incorporate any findings data may bring them in the final product.
Websites and web apps these days must be mobile responsive to serve all possible users. That’s why it’s so important for the developer to be able to work with software dedicated to multiple platforms, and not only desktops.
Those whose skill palette features both technical and non-technical skills.
Besides a few that we have already mentioned (e.g. teamwork attitude), there are also other soft skills that every good web developer should have. These are:
Understanding one’s mistakes and being able to admit something went wrong is crucial when building a successful product. Hire web developers who always strive to learn upon their mistakes and improve their skills.
Building a product (and, even more, later: maintaining it) is not an A to Z type of work. Issues come up regularly during the process, so a web developer should be able to manage their time well and adjust their schedule to what’s currently happening at the company.
A product will never look exactly like the developer wants it to look. Other teams will call for specific changes and time will run out before everything will be as polished as perfectionists want it to be. Make sure your new web developer hire understands it.
Ask them the right questions! Here are some of our most recommended ones:
You should also ask some more technical questions as well. Some examples worth recognizing are:
Think about what are the things that define how teams at your company operate. Do you report issues with a tool like Jira? Do you have an in-house team that works in an agile way, possibly with Scrum and/or Kanban methodologies implemented? Do you run daily stand-ups?
All the modern inventions in terms of organizing teams and people are very often used by web developers, even those working in remote teams. Even if you haven’t introduced those yet to your company, we highly recommend hiring web developers who already have experience with, for example, agile methodologies. They can help you implement them in your organization which would be a huge advantage for both parties.
But there are also other aspects that you might want to consider:
If your company is an enterprise, you surely have a bigger IT team and can allow yourself to hire web developers who are less experienced but can be easily trained by their colleagues. However, a small but fast-paced startup may rather need a truly experienced engineer who will lead the web development team on the later stage.
Most successful companies nowadays think globally. Some have offices around the world, some hire remote workers from multiple different countries, others simply target their products to customers from anywhere in the world. That’s why the web developers you hire should be experienced in working with multinational, multiethnic teams and be unbiased toward others.
Not everyone works efficiently at home. If you plan to run or hire a remote team, make sure your new web developer has already some experience in working that way and is motivated as much at home as in the office.
To have a web app developed that will turn random users into returning customers, you need something more than just a great coding expert. Plan your product well with industry-leading project managers and then sale it with the help of IT marketing experts.
