How to Hire the Best Full Stack Developers

Before you hire full stack developers, it is essential for employers to have a good background or knowledge of the expertise you are looking for. In this comprehensive article, we answer all the questions that you might have when you want to hire the best full stack developers.


To start off, what is a full stack developer? Regarded as a master of a wide range of technologies, a full stack developer is well-versed and well-experienced in both front-end and back-end development and its technologies.


The term “full stack” refers to all the technologies needed to complete a certain application or project. Meanwhile, the term “stack” also refers to a collection of software components that are combined to achieve a certain function without having to need other modules.


Popular stacks are:


As such, a full stack developer is able to handle all work regarding databases, systems engineering, servers, and clients. Depending on your project or business needs, you may need to hire a web stack, native application stack, or mobile stack developer.


Due to their in-depth knowledge and experience in all areas of development across multiple programming languages, full stack developers are highly in-demand. In fact, Indeed lists full stack developers as one of the most in-demand tech jobs in terms of open job postings.

Why should you hire a full stack developer?

When you hire full stack developers, your business can build a variety of easy to complex applications for web, mobile and software while having just one person expertly creating the application’s front-end and back-end. Hiring a full stack developer means you are hiring: 


An expert in web, software, or mobile development

Having mastered each stage of software development, your full stack developer can help you with a variety of simple to complex tasks at any stage of the development. They can also recommend on what technologies will suit your development to make the project more efficient and cost-effective.


An all-in-one solution to your development needs

Having a full stack developer in your team means having a full team of developers on board. The full stack developer’s expertise and experience allow him or her to quickly create prototypes, identify and solve issues at any stage of the development, provide help to other team members, and reduce overall costs. As such, instead of hiring a team of developers, one full stack developer can already effectively and expertly suffice.

What technical skills should you look for when hiring full stack developers?

When hiring full stack developers, it is important to thoroughly assess a candidate’s skills as you will hire a person who will be handling both your front-end and back-end development. Aside from having earned a degree or certification in Computer Science, Software Development, IT, or other related tech fields, here are full stack developer skills that you should look for:

  • Good foundation and solid experience on both front-end and back-end development
  • Strong skills in front-end technologies such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, AngularJS, and React, among others
  • Solid skills in various back-end technologies such as Node.js, Perl, PHP, Ruby and Python, among others
  • Experience with HTTP, REST, databases and web storage
  • Good design or UI/UX skills
  • Preferably with good project management and organisational skills, and creativity


Just a reminder that these are just recommended technical skills and this may still change depending on your project’s requirements.

Seeing the high costs that most startups and businesses experience when hiring local developers, many companies choose to outsource their software development instead.

However, in order to have a successful outsourcing partnership, it is necessary to look for the right IT outsourcing partner.

To learn more about standard industry rates, here’s a helpful article on offshore developer rates from various outsourcing locations.

What interview techniques should you use to hire the best full stack developers?

After posting full stack developers for hire, the next step to hiring developers is to carefully and properly assess their technical knowledge and experience and soft skills. To hire the best full stack developers, here are a few recommended interview techniques and questions that you can implement.


Have candidates explain their most recent project

Ask developer candidates to discuss and illustrate the latest project or application that they have finished. By having them do this, recruiters or employers can identify these two important aspects when hiring developers:


First, this exercise gives a good assessment of a candidate’s knowledge and experience in full stack development. In addition, this will allow recruiters to discover skills that a candidate may have that is not written on their resume.


Second, this exercise allows employers to evaluate whether a candidate has good communication skills which are essential to collaborating and working with a group. Can the candidate explain the technical concepts and processes easily? Would a non-tech person understand the discussion? This skill is necessary if you are searching for a lead or senior full stack developer.


Conduct technical tests

Surprisingly, many businesses still do not actually test their candidates when hiring full stack developers. A technical exam can give employers a better assessment of a candidate’s technical abilities.


Businesses can opt to use online coding tests for free or for a price to conveniently check on the candidate’s technical abilities. When you hire the best full stack developers, you should look for someone who is not only skilled and knowledgeable in full stack development, but also someone who has strong analytical and problem-solving skills.


If it’s not possible to conduct technical tests, asking your candidates to write sample codes, consisting of around five to ten lines of code, would be a better option. Two to three sample codes can already give employers an idea on a candidate’s strengths.


To help you out, here are sample tests that you can have your candidates answer to help you hire the best full stack developers. Since the programming languages and technologies for a full stack developer may differ depending on what you’re looking for, let’s use the MEAN stack as an example for the coding tests below.

config = require('./DB');

mongoose.Promise = global.Promise;
mongoose.connect(config.DB, { useNewUrlParser: true }).then(
() => {console.log('Database is connected') },
err => { console.log('Can not connect to the database'+ err)}

const app = express();
const port = process.env.PORT || 4000;

const server = app.listen(port, function(){
console.log('Listening on port ' + port);
