Essential Qualifications to Look for in a React JS Developer while Outsourcing

If you plan to outsource your React JS project, there are some qualifications you should always look for in in a remote React JS developer/s.

1.Experience and Visual Evidence:

First of all, It is important to understand what level of developer expertise/experience your project needs. However, don't hurry to trust the numbers of experience, go after the proof! You are always free to request a portfolio of projects that the outsourcing agency or a freelance developer has. Also try to ask for samples links. Check the functionality, features and performance. If it matches your criteria and expectations, than you are good to go.

2.Knowledge of React JS and other Frameworks.

It is easy to guess that the full-command of React JS is a must for a React JS developer, but it is not always enough. The more frameworks, libraries and programs they are familiar with, the better. For example, when outsourcing ReactJS for your SaaS app, ask them if they know the difference between the competitors of ReactJS? Are they aware of what features are only executable by ReactJS and not in Angular, or vice versa? If the web developer has a wider scope of programs they are familiar with, then it's more likely they know around all the perks and disadvantages of using one or another for a specific project .

3.Keep it Documented!

While outsourcing your project, it is crucial to take care of proper legal documentation. Agree on mutual pricing terms, deadlines, and specific services with a proper contract to avoid problematic situations in the long-run. This will prevent you in case of irresponsible management or late delivery during the course of the project. Managing projects merely with friendly agreements and promises are likely to leave you hanging in the end.. Having a binding agreement, even with a long-time partner, is the most secure route when outsourcing

How Incredo Chooses the Right React JS Developers

Being a professional SAAS Growth Agency, we put much effort into acquiring the best of talent available at the market, and if it is not available, we always train and create one! It is important to note that Incredo hires only the Top 10 % talent from Armenian and Ukraine.

Below you can see the brief procedure that INCREDO uses to select the React JS developers.

The pool of talent selected by the HR Manager undergoes the following 3 stage selection process:

Stage N.1: Our IT project manager asks about the developers previous experience to get a better understanding of the scope of projects they worked on before. Afterwards, we check their professional knowledge by asking them questions about JavaScript ECMAScript, OOP basics, React.js related questions like component life cycle methods and etc. In the end we ask about their workspace requirements. We believe that professionals deliver their best results when they feel comfortable, so we always try to understand how we can help our team players to feel comfortable.

Stage N.2: In this stage of hiring process we give the candidate a React JS task,Usually to test their understanding of React.js in action and understand their work ethic.

Stage N.3: If the candidate passes the first two stages, a probation period is set. The probation in our case can be from 2 weeks to two months. During this period, the react js engineer is supervised by our senior developers.

IF you plan to outsource your project, be prepared for research! You don't want to trust any and every company claiming to be a SAAS Growth Agency. As a client, you have the right to have access to any relevant professional information regarding the developers that the agency has hired. Not being a professional React JS developer, it is always hard to correctly assess the profile of a developer. Trying to help to make more informed decisions, Incredo presents the CVs of its Reactjs developers, who we can confidently refer to as the best talents at the market.

Please feel free to follow the link (here should be inserted the link of the landing page for developer Cvs and hiring conditions, contacts, etc) and have a talk or chat with us!
