How to Hire the Best Front End Developers

When it comes to developing your website, it is important to invest in the right tools and manpower to create an online platform fit for your business. As you embark on finding the right front end developer to help build your IT project, it is important to educate yourself on what front end developers do and how they can help develop your IT-based project.

 

What do such developers do? Essentially, they develop websites using web technologies, such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript, bringing websites or application design to life. The front end developer is essential to web development as they’re the ones who produce and enable users to see and interact with the website or application.

 

In order to produce a successful website or application, it is important to hire highly skilled front end developers who have a deep understanding of how web or app development works. The following information will help you understand and deliberate what you need for your IT development project.

Why should you hire a front end developer?

It is highly encouraged to hire a front end developer for your IT development project, as the techniques and tools used to build a website or application continuously changes. One has to be kept updated and take action in an efficient manner. Hiring a skilled front end developer will be highly beneficial for you and your business, as they provide the right expertise to your development needs.

 

As such, when you hire a front end developer, this means you hire someone who:

 

Creates a responsive and visually appealing interface.

A front end developer is responsible for implementing visual elements that users see and interact within a site. They also make sure that the interface of your IT development project is user-friendly and visually appealing to its users.

 

Monitors and updates web developments.

A front end developer is essential in your team as he or she needs to constantly be aware of the new developments of the field. Simply put it, a skilled front end developer ensures that your website is not behind the latest technologies and trends.

 

Ensures consistent performance.

Websites are now accessed in different devices from laptops, smartphones to tablets, front end developers also make sure that the user experience is always consistent and responsive across these devices. A front end developer considers different aspects such as various browsers, operating systems, and screen sizes when it comes to creating the site, ensuring that content displays correctly.

What are the technical skills of a front end developer?

When hiring a front end developer, it is important to assess their credentials to see if they are fit to produce the work that you need. A degree in any IT related field would not suffice. It is suggested to look into their technical skills, to deliberate whether they’re proficient in the right programming technologies for your development project.

 

The essential programming technologies that a front end developer must possess are HTML, CSS, DOM, JavaScript and HTTP/URL. They must also have the ability to run the designed website or application in a web browser, headless browser, WebView or compiled input in a native runtime environment.

 

Other technical skills that a front end developer could possess are as follows:

  • Content Management Systems (aka CMS)
  • Node.js
  • Cross-Browser Testing
  • Cross-Platform Testing
  • Unit Testing
  • Cross-Device Testing
  • Accessibility / WAI-ARIA
  • Search Engine Optimization (aka SEO)
  • Interaction or User Interface Design
  • User Experience
  • Usability
  • E-commerce Systems
  • Portal Systems
  • Wireframing

How much is the usual rate for front end developers?

In order to get an idea, it helps to look at how much it would cost to hire locally, here’s a comparison showing a front end developer’s average annual salary and hourly rate from four different Western countries. All salaries and hourly rates come from Neuvoo and PayScale.

To save up to 65%, many companies today have found offshoring to be a better alternative to hiring qualified front end developers at competitive industry rates.

What interview techniques should you use to hire the best front end developers?

Although one can tell a lot from looking at a developer’s credentials, it shouldn’t be the final step to your hiring process. It is also important to make sure that you and your potential front end developer must be on the same page all throughout the development of your project.

 

To further assess your potential front end developer it is highly encouraged to take interviews and conduct technical tests. As such, it’s best to look at recommended interview techniques and questions that employers can ask or apply to determine the best front end developer.

 

For the interview, you can ask the candidate about their previous projects, how they dealt with complications, how they rectified the situation and what the outcome was. As you interview them, you can also assess how well each candidate communicates. You can foretell how well he or she will be able to take instructions and communicate with you. It is highly important to be able to easily interact with your dedicated front end developer, as he or she must understand and adhere to your requirements and specifications throughout the development project.

 

After the interview, it is also important to conduct a technical test to see how well versed they are in programming technologies such as HTML, CSS, DOM, JavaScript and HTTP/URL. These programming technologies are the main technical skills that a front end developer must possess.

 

Here are some sample questions you can ask during the technical skills test:

 

Q: How can you clear sides of a floating element?

A: If you clear a slide of an element, floating elements will not be accepted on that side. With 'clear' set to 'left', an element will be moved below any floating element on the left side. clear is used to stop wrap of an element around a floating element.

 

Q: How can you change the direction of HTML text?

A: Use the BDO (bidirectional override) element of HTML.

<!-- Switch text direction -->
<p><bdo dir="rtl">This text will go right to left.</bdo></p>

Q: Can you apply a CSS rule to a part of an HTML document?

A: Yes, by using "scoped" in the style tag.

 

Q: What are the differences between visibility hidden and display none?

A: display: none removes the element from the normal layout flow and allow other elements to fill in. visibility: hidden tag is rendered, it takes space in the normal flow but doesn't show it.

 

Q: In JavaScript, differentiate feature detection, feature inference, and using the UA string

A:

Feature detection directly checks if a feature is applied.

if (Promise) {
 let a = Promise.resolve('hello');
}

Feature inference checks other properties to infer if a feature is applied.

if (MozSmsMessage) {
 // guess it must be Firefox...
}

The UA (UserAgent) string is natively exposed to scripts and HTTP header by a browser.

console.log(navigator.userAgent); // "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; ..."
