How to Interview and Hire Node.js Developers
Popular mobile app Node.js platforms that were created using Node.js include Paypal, Netflix, Uber, LinkedIn, and Medium.
Being such a popular runtime environment means that there are lots of Node.js developers out there. The question is how do I find a great Node.js developer when there are so many?
Well, the good news is that it is not as hard as it sounds when you know how. The first choice you will have to make is what kind of platform you will use.
There are several types of platforms that will enable you to hire Node.js developers.
The best option for any startup or enterprise-level company that is looking to undertake anything but the simplest project is to hire developers from a software development company such as DevTeam.Space.
Before we delve deeper into the pros and cons of each type of platform, let’s take a closer look at the technical skills that you will need from your Node.js developer or development team.
1. Node.js programming skills
There are several key skill sets to look for in your Node.js developer:
- In-depth skills in Node.js. Node.js comes with a large library of Node.js IDEs and tools. Your developer should know about a lot of these and which ones can help your project development. A good indication of a coder who will have lots of expertise is whether or not they have contributed to the development of Node.js projects with the Node.js community.
- Good code writing skills and knowledge of the best practices.
- Experience using Node.js frameworks such as Express, Koa.js, Hapi, and Total.js.
- Knowledge of Model-View-Controller (MVC) frameworks for Node.js including Strongloop, Sinatra, and Rails.
- All Node.js programmers must have mastered front-end technologies like HTML5 and CSS3.
- A comprehensive understanding of asynchronous programming or non-blocking programming. This is still fairly new to many Node.js programmers so they need to have a total understanding of how this approach can be used most effectively.
- Experience developing using database management processes to integrate several different source databases into one system without significantly reducing its performance.
- A knowledge of RESTful APIs including the development of new ones and existing ones already available in libraries.
These are all must-have skills for any Node.js project. However, if you have a more complex project, you will need a senior-level Node.js developer.
2. Advanced skills in a senior-level Node.js developer
There are several other important skills any expert-level Node.js programmer should have.
If you are planning a more complex project then look for these skills:
- Experience using workflow automations such as Gulp, NPM tools such as these help to improve the speed of the finished application and so should be used.
- Also vital is an extensive knowledge of MVC frameworks like Meteor, Angular.js, Blaze, and React.
- Comprehensive knowledge of source code management tools.
- The skills to efficiently add scalability into web apps
3. Other software development skills required for Node.js web development
There are several additional skills that any Node.js software developer worth hiring should have mastered.
A. How to best secure apps
If your final product gets a bad reputation for security, no one is going to use it. This is why you need to make certain that you hire Node.js developers who have good knowledge in this field.
Your precise needs will depend on your project specifications. However, as a general rule, your Node.js developer should have good understanding and experience in the following:
- User authentication and authorization.
- General application vulnerabilities and how to avoid them.
- How to secure APIs.
- Experience in undertaking security tests.
- An understanding of data protection laws.
B. Error handling
Dealing with errors quickly and efficiently is the hallmark of any mid or senior level Node.js developer. The ability to quickly identify the cause of a problem and to solve it so that it does not reoccur should not be underestimated.
A good number of entry-level Node.js programmers have not yet mastered this skill. A fairly simple error can send them into a nosedive which might take them hours or even days to solve. This is why inexperienced web developers often end up costing you more.
Just as efficient error handling is the sign of an experienced developer, testing is an important quality in what makes a great Node.js developer.
While automated testing will identify many code faults very quickly. The only way to make sure that your code is as good as it should be is to get your developer to undertake regular code reviews. These are often performed at the end of each sprint in the development process.
Your developer should be reviewing all the code that they have written to check for errors and identify code vulnerabilities. A good indication of their experience level will be the number of years they have been working on Node.js application development as well as any time spent working as a code reviewer. Check all these before you hire.
D. A good track record of delivering reliable code on time
The successful collaboration between developers, testers, DevOps engineers, project managers, and the product owner is what makes effective software development possible.
All developers, no matter whether they are working in an office or remotely, must work well as part of a team. Being a reliable team player who writes good code is essential. However, the project manager also needs to know that they can rely on each member of the team to do what they are asked, as well as working well as a team.
Your Node.js developer should be able to easily fit into your team. You should look for a good communicator who is able to work on their own initiative. An example of this is the ability to raise upcoming issues regarding potential roadblocks, etc., without being asked.
Checking into what kinds of projects your developer has worked on will give you an idea of a programmer’s experience when it comes to working well in a team.
3. How to find the best Node.js developer?
Now that you understand the main skill sets that you need to look out for when hiring Node.js programmers, you can begin the hiring process.
1. Decide what kind of platform to hire Node.js developers
General purpose freelancer sites offer clients easy access to lots of Node.js developers. They leave you in full control of the hiring and management process. You can find cost-effective developers on these platforms as they tend to charge the freelancer fees rather than the client.
However, this is definitely a double-edged sword. Many charge substantial fees to freelancers which often demoralizes them, which is definitely not something you want.
These sites also don’t vet their freelancers, nor do they offer anything in the way of NDAs or client protection should a freelancer fail to do what they have agreed. Many freelancers only work part-time and will be in different time zones too.
There are a growing number of freelance platforms that only deal with software and UI developers. These software development specific freelancer sites claim to vet all their applicants and to only hire the top ones.
Keep in mind that you won’t get much in the way of project management or project management tools from these platforms. This means that you will need a competent PM who has experience managing remote developers. Hiring unmanaged developers can also be a problem if they are located in a far away country.
The best solution is to hire a developer or development team from a reputable software development company such as DevTeam.Space.
DevTeam.Sapce only has vetted developers who work with the company on a full-time basis. We guarantee the quality of their work. We don’t require any payment until you are 100% happy with the work produced.
We offer managed developers as well as access to both our PM tools and our unique development process to ensure your project management is as easy as possible.
We also ensure the security of your code and sign NDAs to protect your intellectual property.
2. Interview the shortlisted candidates
Now you have decided on your preferred hiring method, you can start the interview process. Keep in mind that if you are using a software development company then you won’t need to spend as much time interviewing as you will with freelancer sites.
Start by shortlisting the most suitable candidates and take it from there.
Set up a face to face interview and come armed with plenty of good Node.js interview questions. You should also do research into the candidate’s work history and testimonials and introduce a few questions on this.
Ask them questions on their knowledge and experience which are focused around the kind of tasks and work processes that your project will require.
3. Provide detailed information project
Once you have found your Node.js developer then it is time to bring them up to speed on all details of your application development project.
This will include:
- Project requirements including requirements, technical solutions, architectural decisions.
- Their role in the development.
- Your development approach i.e. Agile, Scrum, etc.
- Any contractual obligations including NDA.
- Introduce them to your team.
- Set up communications and the tools they need such as GitHub.
- Tasks to be completed by the first milestone/sprint.
