Hire Web Developers for Your Next Project

Web developers are programmers who develop websites and other applications used on the internet and other server networks.Developers use programming languages like HTML/CSS, C#, Ruby, and PHP to complete their various projects.

Web developers can be categorized into 3 types- front-end, back-end, and full-stack. Front-end developers are responsible for the areas of a web application that users see and interact with. Back-end developers look into the codes that control how a web application loads and runs, and Full-stack developers work with both- front and back ends.

Why Should You Hire Web Developers? 

Hiring a freelance web developer will ensure that your company website or business application is professionally developed and that it creates the best user experience. Whether you want to build a small website to explain your business or you want an elaborate e-commerce store, hire a freelance web developer who can get the job done efficiently and cost-effectively. Hiring a freelancer will give you greater flexibility and more input on the development project.

What to Look for in a Freelance Web Developer

If you're unsure which web developers to hire, it helps to have a good idea about the skills, experience, and specialties of each developer who responds to your job post.

A lot depends on the work you have planned, the programming language your website, app, or game is written in, and whether you need a front-end developer with a comprehensive knowledge of UX or a problem-solving developer who can unpick glitches and fix bugs.

Some of the most important attributes to prioritize when hiring a developer include the following:

  • Clear communication: your selected developer should be happy to listen to your project specifications, provide input, recommend solutions, and be easy to collaborate with to ensure a successful development project.

  • Excellent reviews: Guru profiles give you a great insight into how a developer has performed on previous jobs, assuring that your selected developer can deliver the project on time and within budget.

  • Relevant abilities and talent: the world of web development is vast, so your developer must have the right capabilities and technical know-how to fulfill your project objectives and be well-versed in JavaScript, CSS, and HTML.

Posting a job is the easiest way to ensure you're only hiring developers with appropriate expertise. By sharing a clear, detailed brief of the development project, you can narrow down your shortlist and invite professional freelancers with the necessary knowledge, talent, and experience to respond with a quotation.

How to Write a Great Job Post to Hire Web Developers

Guru provides access to thousands of qualified web developers, so whichever project you are hiring for, the detail and clarity in your job post can make it considerably easier to match your requirements with a developer who is the perfect fit!

Here are some of the things we'd recommend you mention:

  • Who you are: some developers love to work in certain sectors or niches. Need an interactive app for an e-commerce business? Looking for a game developer to hunt down the error in your code? After support with a responsive recruitment site? Cover this in your post so you connect with the right freelancers.

  • Budget: you don't necessarily need to hire a top-tier developer if your project is relatively simple, and junior developers can offer amazing value for money, with the opportunity to add a new piece of work to their portfolio. If you have a maximum budget, be sure to include it.

  • Timescales: most businesses need to hire a developer to complete a task or project within a finite time, but it's important to disclose deadlines from the outset. That saves you from discussing your project with a developer only to find they don't have the availability, particularly if you are in a rush.

  • Coding languages: experienced developers will be proficient in all the major programming languages your code is likely written in (e.g., HTML CSS, JavaScript, Python, or Java). If you know the programming language, you can state this in your project brief.

If you're unsure which development language you're using, you can mention that too - developers appreciate that not all business owners are tech-savvy! However, any specialist code in a non-standard language could require a developer with more specific expertise.
