By 2019, the primary indicator for business owners when choosing developers has become in-depth expertise in a particular area. It’s crucial to pay attention to whether you share the same vision with a potential contractor, whether a company is interested in the purpose of creating your product, and whether it is ready to discuss your objectives expertly.
In this article, openGeekLab outlined five proven steps on how to find and hire top app developers for your business.
For example, your objective is to launch an ICO campaign for a startup, develop a Blockchain-based solution for a fintech project, create a fitness and healthcare app, or a web app for invoice insurance.
A contractor’s expertise in a narrow niche allows delivering custom solutions and implementing unique features—smart contracts creation, cryptocurrency implementation, crypto wallets development, invoice management, payment options, wearables integration, multi-device sync, real-time tracking, etc.
The initial goal isn’t about developing a product and closing a project as soon as possible. It’s about creating a reliable tool to achieve defined business goals—boost sales, solve users’ problems, attract a new customer base, increase brand awareness, customer loyalty.
Decide who you want to find and hire to work with—offshore software development partner, an in-house team of creators, or hire freelance app developers.
Offshore software development partnership means relocation of particular business processes outside your country.
In-house software development stands for product development taking place onsite to support your business operations.
Freelance app developers are specialists who are self-employed and mainly perform one-time tasks on specific freelance platforms.
Before you choose a particular type of a contractor as well as where to hire developers, keep in mind that the rates range may vary significantly in different regions. Rates depend not only on the application complexity, developers’ skill set or expertise but also on an image of the region and the cost of living.
You can use personal connections, randomly browse the Web, or surf through social media to find application developers for hire, but the best option is to monitor specific platforms.
Clutch and GoodFirms are considered the trusted B2B platforms among businesses to find and hire contractors due to their honest approach. You can’t leave fake reviews, as service managers carefully check all data. These services analyze and rank best app developers for hire in broad categories.
These platforms offer companies to become sponsors. In case of purchasing sponsorship packages, companies receive advanced positions in ratings, reviews, better visibility, ads, and other benefits which may mislead you while browsing categories of creators.
LinkedIn is a social network focused on business connections. Companies publish their articles and news. Individual freelancers communicate on thematic topics. But profiles that are not fully completed, can be overlooked by the interested party. Also, there are many fake accounts that can cause inconvenience when searching for contractors to hire.
Upwork, Freelancer, People Per Hour, Guru and other freelance platforms offer such business tools as online and offline time tracking, invoices, file sharing, messaging, notifications. Comments and star ratings from previous or current clients, as well as job success, can help to find and hire appropriate freelancers.
GitHub as a code hosting platform provides you with the opportunity to look through specific samples of open source code to find creators.
Look through portfolios on design platforms—Dribbble, Behance, Slideshare, 99Designs, crowdspring, etc. Good design sells, so carefully check samples and presentations published on these websites to find the perfect match.
Such platforms for competitions as Kaggle, DrivenData, DataScience, or CodaLab hold machine learning and data processing contests. The more successful creators’ accounts and projects, the more qualified mobile app developers.
You can also analyze a technical blog where a team crafts content which is useful for businesses and startups looking for developers to hire.
For an accurate analysis of potential creators, create a comparison table considering the following issues:
Ask candidates to show the samples of applications they have already created. Portfolios will give you a comprehensive understanding of the creators’ skill set.
Make sure that tech stack, functionality, and design solutions are precisely what your business needs. Consider time-and-cost effective solutions. For example, cross-platform development using React Native allows creating a mobile app both for iOS and Android, reducing costs 1.8 times, and shortening the development time.
The list of client base will also help you to weigh the pros and cons of a particular developer. You can request reviews on the work done, ask whether clients are satisfied with the result, or maybe they have suggestions on what they would like to improve.
Specify which payment model a company uses and ensure that its team completes product development under the agreement and without exceeding the budget. Time and material pricing model fits best for massive and long-term projects. Milestone payments are also widely used. Some prefer hourly payments.
Ask creators what tools they apply in their activities and how they conduct communication Jira and Trello are essential to controlling the terms of the development agreement and meeting deadlines.
Agile, Scrum, Kanban, Lean, and other methods are perfect for various projects with entirely different input sets and requirements. You can also combine these methods.
Specify how you can secure your IT-product. The proven option is to sign a confidentiality agreement (NDA), or mobile app development agreement, considering intellectual property rights, as well as ownership of an app’s source code, design, and content. Define the responsibilities, deliverables, payment structure, workflow, and deadlines.
A careful review of a company’s case studies lets you know whether a team is worth your efforts.
Choose those who strive for creating a powerful tool for your business needs. You can find and hire freelance app developers, found a team from local mobile app developers, or cooperate with an offshore team. Each type of cooperation has its pros and cons. To find the golden mean, point out all the benefits and the real business value a contractor can offer you to meet your objectives.
