Flexiple Developers are reviewed on their experience and complexity of products built. Those who display depth and have worked on end-to-end projects are given an introductory call.
Over a call, the developer’s ability to communicate in an articulate manner is tested. A deeper understanding of the candidate’s technical experience and also motivation to freelance is achieved.
Over one or more F2F interviews, the developer’s involvement and performance in building complex software products are assessed. This sets the platform to delve deeper into technology-specific discussions.
Developers' mental agility and problem-solving abilities are tested through a coding test involving algorithmic as well as skill-specific problems. A mixture of live evaluation and timed coding tests is used.
The live experience of working with developers is verified by reaching out to past clients and/or employers. Inputs on various qualitative factors such as reliability, punctuality, communication and responsiveness are received.
Performance during each engagement is continually assessed. Our developers are expected to maintain Flexiple standards across all engagements with our customers.

Here are some of the tools generally used by developers:
1. IDEs and Code Editors
Integrated Development Environments provide everything that is needed for a developer to build a software product. Language-specific, as well as general IDEs, are available in the market. Atom, Sublime, Visual Studio Code are examples of these.
2. Inspection Tools
Code inspection tools enable developers to check how their application will perform on a browser at the user's end. The developer can then make fixes to the software if required. Chrome DevTools is a commonly used tool under this category.
These tools serve as a storage point for the software. These are particularly used for version control, where all the changes made to a piece of software are tracked. Using these, developers can access past versions of their code files with ease. GitHub is a commonly used developer tool in this category.
4. Build and Deployment
Deployment tools make it easier to distribute and update software that developers are working on. Containerization platforms like Docker allow developers to create, deploy and run apps in containers, making this process simple.
5. Stack Overflow
Stack Overflow is a large online forum for developers. Here, developers can ask any queries they have and other users answer help in finding solutions. Developers can also refer to already existing solutions for their queries.
Below are some key points that we at Flexiple have learned through trial and error - a process of filtering through over 15,000 developers.
Now that you have made a quality JD, it can still be tricky to evaluate the skills of your applicants. To help you with that, we have created a pool of questions that a good Developer should be comfortable with.
It is important to note that the ability to answer these questions doesn't imply that you have a top quality candidate. But it definitely is a big step in that direction.
To help you navigate through these questions, we’ve categorized the interview questions in 3 parts:
A. Basic concepts: Includes all basic concepts used across languages but we've focused on their significance in Development. This will give you an understanding of how strong their programming foundation is.
B. Advanced concepts: Includes all concepts that someone with higher expertise should know.
C. DS/Algorithm questions: To test the logical capability of the candidate.
