How to choose and hire the best React.js developers for your project

Regardless of how unbiased we would like to be, our first impression of any business depends on the way its front-end looks. From a company’s front-end we can judge how much does it care about the image, the importance the quality plays in the company’s values, etc. For the reason, up-market businesses don’t tend to save on “their face”. They know all the investments they have put in it will be paid off handsomely.

The statistics prove React.js to be the best-in-class among front-end frameworks. Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019 stated React.js as the most loved and wanted framework. Node Package Manager gives a total number of more than 276 million downloads between January 2019 and January 2020, leaving its opponents far behind. 148 thousand stars on Github, and the technology being used by Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tesla, and other Fortune 500 companies, make a demand for React.js developers to grow at a record pace.

Here are four steps to hiring the best React.js developers that fit your project:

Step #1. Choose a software development company

Best developers work in the best companies. To find your React.js development company, visit popular review platforms that provide customers feedback and arrange companies according to different criteria, including country (Clutch, AppFutura, etc), check the company’s portfolio paying special attention to the technology needed, and appoint a meeting with a company’s manager to get the details about the cooperation process.

A demand in React.js technology is reflected in the developers’ salary which is one of the highest among JavaScript developers. The highest average salary belongs to the USA with a $93,025 paycheck according to PayScale. Though not every business can afford such a high rate and fortunately, there are just so many other countries with excellent expertise to choose from. For example, the average rate of Ukrainian React.js developer is around $20,400 which makes Ukraine an attractive and cost-effective outsourcing destination with a large talent pool.

Step #2. Check a portfolio

An efficient candidate’s portfolio is the background for further steps of interviewing. It provides general information about their expertise. The most vital things you should concentrate on are:

  • does a candidate have enough experience working with React.js for your project?;

  • examples of SPAs being developed by them;

  • references from previous clients;

  • acquaintance with newly released features, libraries, and changes in the React interface.

Step #3. Examine soft and technical skills

You are to work with this person so make sure they are reliable, able to meet deadlines, communicate ideas clearly, and listen well to others. Whereas personal skills can be checked by you, the technical part is more challenging and is highly recommended to be conducted by a React.js developer on your side. They can check the understanding of JavaScript, React’s potential in comparison with other technologies, knowledge of architectural patterns compatible with React, etc.

Step #4. Some important interview questions not to forget

If you don’t have a React.js developer to assist then get ready to take the responsibility yourself. Prepare a list of questions for an interview and make sure you know the right answers:

  • Compare and contrast React with another JavaScript framework;

  • How different is Real and Virtual DOM?

  • What are props and how to use it?

  • What is JSX?

  • Explain the difference between pure and general components in React;

  • What are the distinctions between ES5 and ES6 syntax?

  • Compare MVC with Flux;

  • What are the limitations of React?

  • Why have you chosen React?

Final thoughts

Though the whole process might look quite challenging, the aforementioned four steps will help you to run it smoother and faster. In case you decide to check out inVerita for React.js talents, our managers will provide you with all the necessary information.
