    Where Can You Hire Java Developers?

They can be found in many places nowadays, but few can guarantee the quality of the developers you’re hiring, making you lose time and money. And although there are multiple job boards and job markets available to find your perfect match, keep in mind that a talented and skilled Java expert is probably not actively looking for jobs. Even if they are, odds are you’re competing with thousands of other companies.

    How To Hire Remote Java Developers?

    When hiring Java developers, fully remote contracts are the best way to get quality employees at affordable rates. 

    Here are some key steps you should consider when remote hiring:

    1. Create a good job description: Be mindful of the position you’re hiring for. Make a list of the main responsibilities and skill requirements, as well as a brief summary of the job.  Be descriptive, yet concise: you’ll want your candidates to find out if the job is tailored to them in the first few seconds so they will be enticed to apply.
    2. Find your candidates: After landing a good description, time to post it in appropriate job boards. While you wait for applicants, you should also make a conscious effort of looking for people by yourself as well. Many great Java experts aren’t actively looking for a job, but will consider it if the proposition is enticing for them.
    3. Assess and filter your options: Now that you have all your candidates, it’s time to conduct a thorough assessment and filter them until you have a handful of the best ones. These will be the ones you’ll get to interview and know more deeply before making the final decision.
    4. Conduct interviews: Time to test your candidates knowledge and skills! In this stage, you’ll usually want a combination of technical interviews to test their Java knowledge, as well as some coding challenges to assess their soft skills. After finding the best qualified candidate, time to make them an offer!
    5. Onboard your new hires: Congratulations! You now have a new employee ready to tackle your projects alongside the rest of your development team. Make them feel welcome and create an enticing onboarding experience that will get them started with the right foot. Maintaining an employee happy is as important, if not more so, than hiring one, and you should make the transition as painless as possible. Integrate them with their team from day one and you’ll see immediate results!

    Best Contract to Hire a Java Developer: Full-time Vs. Freelancer 

    DistantJob promotes in-house remote full-time contracts over freelance. The reason is simple: freelance developers are someone you hire when you have a small or fast project that doesn’t require a lot of support or attachment. They’ll do their job and that’s that. It ultimately doesn’t lead to a visible growth in your company.

    Full-time programmers, on the other hand, can bring a multitude of benefits:

    • You’ll have someone that can contribute to a long project or one that requires heavy support after release.
    • If you have a lot of short projects, a full-time employee can easily pivot to a new one as soon as the current one finishes without having to go through the hassle of hiring a new person.
    • A full-time developer can grow and take on other responsibilities at the company as they gain experience and seniority.
    • If you hire the right person, you’ll get someone that is heavily invested in both your projects and the company’s success.
