  • How to Hire a Great Freelance Ruby on Rails Developer?

  • Ruby on Rails, or Rails, is a server-side web application framework written in Ruby which provides default structures for a database, a web service, and web pages. It comes with all the tools needed to build web apps on both the front and back end.

    If you’re looking to hire a freelance Ruby on Rails 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 Ruby on Rails developer.

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

    1. Let's introduce Ruby on Rails to you

    • Origin story: Ruby on Rails was created by David Heinemeier Hansson, while working on a project management tool at Basecamp (37Signals at the time) in 2003. Later in July 2004, it was officially released as open source code.

    • Widely popular: As of 2019, according to JetBrains, there are more than 300 thousand Ruby on Rails developers in the world and it still is among the first choices for a web development framework.

    • Top companies using Ruby on Rails: Top companies like Airbnb, Shopify, Github, Bloomberg, etc. use Ruby on Rails.

    • 2. Why is Ruby on Rails widespread?

      • Minimal error: Ruby on Rails has its own testing setup called RSec which ensures your application is tested properly. It can be used to test the functions employed in the application by separately calling them.
      • Automated Deployment: Ruby on Rails include libraries that allows the code to proceed to production with minimum effort & less time. With just one-time single line initial setup on command interface it can deploy every change you have done to the production.

      3. What are the tools used by Ruby on Rails developers?

      The following are some of the tools used by Ruby on Rails developers at various stages of development:

      1. Traceroute
      Traceroute is a route cleaning tool for Rails applications. It investigates the application's routes definition for checking which routes are mapped to nonexisting controller actions and finds out which controller actions are not reachable.

      2. RubyMine
      It is a cross-platform IDE that provides various tools to the developers from writing and debugging code to testing and deploying a completed application

      3. Brakeman
      Brakeman is a free vulnerability and security scanner specifically designed for Ruby on Rails applications. It looks at the source code of the developer's application which saves time to set up the whole application stack to use it.

      4. Rubocop
      It is a Ruby static code analyzer and code formatting tool that automatically checks if the developer's code conforms to the Ruby style guide from the Ruby community (English/Japanese), or other style guides.

      5. Pry
      Pry is an interactive shell for Ruby on Rails which can start a REPL within a running program. It features syntax highlighting, a flexible plugin architecture and runtime invocation.

      4. Writing the Job Description to hire a Ruby on Rails 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.

      • Expertise in a specific language: All languages have their peculiarities and nuances. While good Ruby on Rails developers can pick up other languages like HTML and CSS, it’s a plus point to hire a developer who already has expertise in it.

      • 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.

      • 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.

      • 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.

      • 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.

      • 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.

      5. Interview Questions for hiring an Ruby on Rails 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 Ruby on Rails 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 Ruby on Rails. 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

      Coming soon!
