Recruiting developers is one of the biggest challenges in the tech industry. The demand for developers continues to grow as more tech businesses spring up. While this is great for employees who now have several options to choose from, it’s rather frustrating for business owners.

Are you planning to hire a JavaScript developer for your project? Are you wondering how to select the best talent? If your answer to any of these questions is 'yes,' then you've come to the right place. Here at Cloud Employee, we work with companies looking to hire professional offshore Javascript developers in the Philippines. We've seen immense improvement in our client’s operations in terms of workforce efficiency.

That being said, this article will show you some tips for hiring the best JavaScript developer for your business.

What is JavaScript?

JavaScript is one of the most widely-used programming languages in the world of software development. It allows you to include complex features on a web page. For instance, you can store values inside variables, carry out operations on programming strings, and run code in response to specific actions on a web page.

JavaScript is at the heart of front-end development. That’s because of the crucial role it plays in User Experience and User Interface. Most new websites have JavaScript as their front layer to dynamically update the page, control multimedia, play slideshows, and animate images. Developers also love to use JavaScript because it makes websites extremely flexible, dynamic, and easy to use.

JavaScript has frameworks with code that can be used to manipulate the generic functionality of JavaScript. Frameworks are simply collections of JavaScript code libraries. Using these libraries, developers can access pre-written JavaScript code to use for routine programming tasks.

This way, there's no need to code every aspect of a website or app from scratch. In 2020, some of the most popular JavaScript frameworks are Angular, React, Vue.js, Ember.js, Meteor, Mithril.js, and Node.js. The cool thing about JavaScript is that it has frameworks for both front end and back end development- it’s a complete package for any developer.

8 Tips for Hiring the Best JavaScript Talents

1. Employer branding

Employer branding is a term that refers to a company’s reputation and popularity as the ideal place to work. It is the way that a business markets itself to job seekers and potential employees. A while ago, employer branding was not a thing. Employees had to market themselves and equally make good impressions on employers.

While that's still the case, there's presently a lot of pressure on employers to make their businesses look attractive to potential workers. One possible reason for this is that more people are becoming highly skilled workers and are less likely to accept a job "just anywhere."

Also, most industries have rapidly expanded within the last decade or so. There's a lot of competition on the market to have the best talents working for you. Because of this, a lot of employers are willing to do whatever it takes to make their companies a place that the best talents dream of working at.

If you play your cards right, you might not even have to go hunting for developers; they will probably be praying for opportunities to work with you. The key is to make your company look like a place where all the cool kids work. You can do this is by harnessing the power of social media.

Use Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, blogs, and other online communities to share your company's culture and values. If you already have some developers working for you, ask them what attracted them. Also, ask them what they perceive as the ideal workplace for any developer.

For instance, most developers like to work in places that give them the chance to experiment with new and exciting technologies, rather than doing the same old thing all the time. In all of this, aim to let the world know that your company is THE place for JavaScript developers to be.

2. Define the position

One vital aspect of the recruitment process is defining the position or role you're hiring for. First, you should take some time to clarify that role for yourself. Examine your business goals and decide what kind of person you need. Also, consider whether there is actually a gap that needs to be filled.

You don’t want to hire a developer you don't need. JavaScript developers, in particular, can be expensive to employ! Before you reach out to invite applications, make sure you have clearly defined the role. What are the requirements for the developer as an individual and as a member of the team?

This will guide your recruitment process. It’ll equally let you know where to start searching. It will help if you also defined the position clearly to potential developers. People should know what the job requirements are and whether they fit into those requirements. This way, only developers who qualify for the role will apply.

3. Hunt for the best talent

As an employer, you have to use various means to sort out the best candidates. You can't afford to limit yourself to just one method of hunting for developers. Having an employee referral program has proven to be one of the most effective recruitment strategies. Encourage your existing employees to recommend your company to any JavaScript developers they know.

Also, offer rewards or benefits for the most useful referrals. Anyone looking to hire must develop the skill of searching for potential employees on LinkedIn. These days, Slack is becoming almost as essential as LinkedIn, so you need to have an active account there as well.

Another option is to get an in-house or third-party recruitment agency to hunt for and recruit the best JavaScript developers for you.

4. Know the type of developer that you need

The next important step is to determine the kind of developer your company needs. First of all, decide whether the role requires a junior or a senior developer. A junior developer is often relatively new to the industry. They likely won't be handling coding projects from scratch but can assist in correcting errors and improving existing projects.

A senior developer is more advanced and has a lot of experience. They can be assigned tasks to handle from start to finish. Even more, they play a supervisory role by guiding junior developers. Once you can determine the level of expertise you need, it will help to streamline your search.

5. Hire someone who understands JavaScript as a language

One of the exciting things about JavaScript is that you can do great things, even with just a few lines of code. Because of this, a lot of developers can get away with learning only a fraction of JavaScript to get a particular thing done.

You should be aware of this and frame your interview process in a way that can determine the scope of a candidate's JavaScript knowledge. Look for someone who understands JavaScript in its pure and original form – JavaScript as a programming language.

6. Hire someone with experience in JavaScript

Some candidates may indeed look impressive because they have mastered a couple of the latest and most popular JavaScript frameworks. However, this is not necessarily what you should be looking out for. Instead, seek out candidates who have practical experience using JavaScript as a language. Such people have a deep understanding of JavaScript, and that's a good foundation for them to develop other skills.

7. Hire someone with knowledge of a JavaScript framework

We mentioned earlier that JavaScript has frameworks that add more functionality to the basic JavaScript language. Frameworks make work easier and faster because you don't have to code from scratch. As you can imagine, any developer who intends to be useful in our fast-paced world needs to have mastery of at least one popular JavaScript framework (and that's just to start!)

Apart from this, a potential developer must have a personal drive to learn new frameworks and employ other technologies that may pop up over time. Software development is possibly the most evolving industry, so this quality should be ranked highly.

8. Hire someone who is continuously improving

The truth is, a one-off recruitment procedure is hardly enough to accurately determine how good a developer is. But there's a sign that can help you pick the right person. A good developer is someone who is continuously open to peer reviews and constructive criticism.

Look out for someone who’s active on GitHub or regularly contributes to Open Source projects. These are both ways to have the quality of your work reviewed by both colleagues and seniors. Any developer who doesn't share his code is not interested in getting better and is certainly not who you want to work for you.

To Summarise

In summary, the first step to hiring the best talents is to make your company a conducive environment for the best talent. Another consideration to make is the balance between experience and a desire to learn new skills. Experience is great, but only if you can use it to enhance your ability to learn new things.

Selecting the Best Talent for JavaScript Software

February 16, 2024

Recruiting developers is one of the biggest challenges in the tech industry. The demand for developers continues to grow as more tech businesses spring up. While this is great for employees who now have several options to choose from, it’s rather frustrating for business owners.

Are you planning to hire a JavaScript developer for your project? Are you wondering how to select the best talent? If your answer to any of these questions is 'yes,' then you've come to the right place. Here at Cloud Employee, we work with companies looking to hire professional offshore Javascript developers in the Philippines. We've seen immense improvement in our client’s operations in terms of workforce efficiency.

That being said, this article will show you some tips for hiring the best JavaScript developer for your business.

What is JavaScript?

JavaScript is one of the most widely-used programming languages in the world of software development. It allows you to include complex features on a web page. For instance, you can store values inside variables, carry out operations on programming strings, and run code in response to specific actions on a web page.

JavaScript is at the heart of front-end development. That’s because of the crucial role it plays in User Experience and User Interface. Most new websites have JavaScript as their front layer to dynamically update the page, control multimedia, play slideshows, and animate images. Developers also love to use JavaScript because it makes websites extremely flexible, dynamic, and easy to use.

JavaScript has frameworks with code that can be used to manipulate the generic functionality of JavaScript. Frameworks are simply collections of JavaScript code libraries. Using these libraries, developers can access pre-written JavaScript code to use for routine programming tasks.

This way, there's no need to code every aspect of a website or app from scratch. In 2020, some of the most popular JavaScript frameworks are Angular, React, Vue.js, Ember.js, Meteor, Mithril.js, and Node.js. The cool thing about JavaScript is that it has frameworks for both front end and back end development- it’s a complete package for any developer.

8 Tips for Hiring the Best JavaScript Talents

1. Employer branding

Employer branding is a term that refers to a company’s reputation and popularity as the ideal place to work. It is the way that a business markets itself to job seekers and potential employees. A while ago, employer branding was not a thing. Employees had to market themselves and equally make good impressions on employers.

While that's still the case, there's presently a lot of pressure on employers to make their businesses look attractive to potential workers. One possible reason for this is that more people are becoming highly skilled workers and are less likely to accept a job "just anywhere."

Also, most industries have rapidly expanded within the last decade or so. There's a lot of competition on the market to have the best talents working for you. Because of this, a lot of employers are willing to do whatever it takes to make their companies a place that the best talents dream of working at.

If you play your cards right, you might not even have to go hunting for developers; they will probably be praying for opportunities to work with you. The key is to make your company look like a place where all the cool kids work. You can do this is by harnessing the power of social media.

Use Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, blogs, and other online communities to share your company's culture and values. If you already have some developers working for you, ask them what attracted them. Also, ask them what they perceive as the ideal workplace for any developer.

For instance, most developers like to work in places that give them the chance to experiment with new and exciting technologies, rather than doing the same old thing all the time. In all of this, aim to let the world know that your company is THE place for JavaScript developers to be.

2. Define the position

One vital aspect of the recruitment process is defining the position or role you're hiring for. First, you should take some time to clarify that role for yourself. Examine your business goals and decide what kind of person you need. Also, consider whether there is actually a gap that needs to be filled.

You don’t want to hire a developer you don't need. JavaScript developers, in particular, can be expensive to employ! Before you reach out to invite applications, make sure you have clearly defined the role. What are the requirements for the developer as an individual and as a member of the team?

This will guide your recruitment process. It’ll equally let you know where to start searching. It will help if you also defined the position clearly to potential developers. People should know what the job requirements are and whether they fit into those requirements. This way, only developers who qualify for the role will apply.

3. Hunt for the best talent

As an employer, you have to use various means to sort out the best candidates. You can't afford to limit yourself to just one method of hunting for developers. Having an employee referral program has proven to be one of the most effective recruitment strategies. Encourage your existing employees to recommend your company to any JavaScript developers they know.

Also, offer rewards or benefits for the most useful referrals. Anyone looking to hire must develop the skill of searching for potential employees on LinkedIn. These days, Slack is becoming almost as essential as LinkedIn, so you need to have an active account there as well.

Another option is to get an in-house or third-party recruitment agency to hunt for and recruit the best JavaScript developers for you.

4. Know the type of developer that you need

The next important step is to determine the kind of developer your company needs. First of all, decide whether the role requires a junior or a senior developer. A junior developer is often relatively new to the industry. They likely won't be handling coding projects from scratch but can assist in correcting errors and improving existing projects.

A senior developer is more advanced and has a lot of experience. They can be assigned tasks to handle from start to finish. Even more, they play a supervisory role by guiding junior developers. Once you can determine the level of expertise you need, it will help to streamline your search.

5. Hire someone who understands JavaScript as a language

One of the exciting things about JavaScript is that you can do great things, even with just a few lines of code. Because of this, a lot of developers can get away with learning only a fraction of JavaScript to get a particular thing done.

You should be aware of this and frame your interview process in a way that can determine the scope of a candidate's JavaScript knowledge. Look for someone who understands JavaScript in its pure and original form – JavaScript as a programming language.

6. Hire someone with experience in JavaScript

Some candidates may indeed look impressive because they have mastered a couple of the latest and most popular JavaScript frameworks. However, this is not necessarily what you should be looking out for. Instead, seek out candidates who have practical experience using JavaScript as a language. Such people have a deep understanding of JavaScript, and that's a good foundation for them to develop other skills.

7. Hire someone with knowledge of a JavaScript framework

We mentioned earlier that JavaScript has frameworks that add more functionality to the basic JavaScript language. Frameworks make work easier and faster because you don't have to code from scratch. As you can imagine, any developer who intends to be useful in our fast-paced world needs to have mastery of at least one popular JavaScript framework (and that's just to start!)

Apart from this, a potential developer must have a personal drive to learn new frameworks and employ other technologies that may pop up over time. Software development is possibly the most evolving industry, so this quality should be ranked highly.

8. Hire someone who is continuously improving

The truth is, a one-off recruitment procedure is hardly enough to accurately determine how good a developer is. But there's a sign that can help you pick the right person. A good developer is someone who is continuously open to peer reviews and constructive criticism.

Look out for someone who’s active on GitHub or regularly contributes to Open Source projects. These are both ways to have the quality of your work reviewed by both colleagues and seniors. Any developer who doesn't share his code is not interested in getting better and is certainly not who you want to work for you.

To Summarise

In summary, the first step to hiring the best talents is to make your company a conducive environment for the best talent. Another consideration to make is the balance between experience and a desire to learn new skills. Experience is great, but only if you can use it to enhance your ability to learn new things.
