  • How to Hire a Great Freelance Developer?


  • Development refers to a set of computer science activities dedicated to the process of creating, designing, deploying, and supporting software. It is the process of creating a piece of software designed to perform a particular task.

    If you’re looking to hire a freelance Developer for your company, this guide is going to help you find the perfect fit. We’ve included everything you need to know about hiring a freelance Developer.

    We have broken the sections into the following parts:
    1. Let's introduce Freelance development to you.
    2. Why is Freelance development widespread?
    3. What are the tools used by Developers?
    4. Writing the job description to hire a Freelance developer
    5. Interview Questions for hiring a Freelance developer
    - Basic Questions
    - Advanced Questions
    - Data Structures/Algo Questions




    1. Let's introduce Freelance development to you

    • Origin story: The history of development began in Manchester, England in 1948. Alan Turing came up with the term in 1935.

    • Widely popular: At the end of 2021, according to the State of the Developer Nation there were about 26.8 million active developers in the world. Out of these, 6 million work on Android development only.

    • 2. Why is Freelance development widespread?

      • Development is important because specific software is needed in almost every industry, in every business, and for every function.
      • Development is used to differentiate brands and gain competitive advantage which requires proficiency with the techniques and technologies that can accelerate software deployment, quality, and efficacy.

      3. What are the tools used by Developers?

      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.

      3. Repositories

      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.


      4. Writing the job description to hire a Freelance developer

      Below are some key points that we at Flexiple have learned through trial and error - a process of filtering through over 15,000 developers.

      • Years of software development experience: Be specific about the technology you’re looking for and the number of years of experience needed. A proxy to years of experience can be the number of production-level apps worked on.

      • Type of products built in the past: Based on the type of product you are trying to build - social network, SAAS product, etc. - you can prioritize certain developers over others.

      • Exposure to specific industries: Developers who have built products in certain industries will already know key aspects of laying the foundation for a great product and will be able to predict possible problems.

      • Experience working remotely: A developer with past remote work experience is an added advantage as they would have first-hand experience of everything - right from how contracts work to streamlined communication, as well as timelines and deliverables.

      • Strong communication: An essential thing to look at when hiring a freelancer is excellent communication skills. Since all the interaction happens online, a freelancer should be able to effectively communicate to ensure a streamlined execution of all work.

      • 5. Interview Questions for hiring a Freelance developer

        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.


        A. Basic concepts


        Coming soon!


        B. Advanced concepts


        Coming soon!


        C. Data Structure/ Algorithm
