    Best Contract To Hire a Java Developer at Half of the Usual Cost?

    When you are in the process of hiring a Java developer, the first challenge is isolating the technologies you will need for your project. Certified Java Developers could specialize in different areas from Architecture, Microservices, DevOps Tools, Junit & Mockito, to Spring Boot. In addition, the role crossover the three core stages of a development process: front-end, back-end, and full-stack.

    The first thing when looking for Java developers is specifying what you need from the role and the exact goals of the project. Without a defined job ad, you might risk attracting candidates with different specializations on freelancing platforms. As a result, you will slow down the hiring process while screening unsuitable CVs or interviewing inadequate candidates. With outsourcing companies, you avoid this risk. However, you never have complete control over the development process (only over the outcome). In addition, you might face difficulties in scheduling deadlines if the company has other clients.

    For this type of role, at DistantJob, we promote in-house remote full-time contracts. The reason is simple. A Java developer doesn’t take care of specific elements or component development. Mastering this language, your candidate must participate in each step of the process, collaborating with other developers and departments. Hiring with a remote position allows you to offer a convenient contract to attract top skilled candidates fluent in English and timezone friendly. We can direct you to write the right requirements and interview candidates to find the best Java developer worldwide. And our HR takes care of legal contracts, insurances, and benefits to ensure smooth onboarding before and after hiring.

    Advantages of Hiring a Java Developer for Your Business

    Android Apps & Software Products

    The first reason to choose Java for business is its popularity. It’s the most popular language to build Android Apps, games, and software products – including Hadoop, Apache, Storm, Gmail, or Atlassian. In addition, you can combine JAva with other languages like Kotlin, Scala, and Groovy because of Java Virtual Machine (JVM).

    Point-of-Sale (POS) systems

    Java is one of the best tools to build software for Point-of-Sale (POS) terminals in the Retail industry.

    OOP: Object-oriented programming

    With OOP, data are objects that you can relate together. Reducing time and resources, this method allows code reusability, easier maintenance and a more efficient development process.

    AMM: Automatic Memory Management

    AMM relates to the allocation and deallocation of memory. In short, the garbage collector isolates and removes useless objects, supporting optimization and CPU work. Finally, Java allows multi-threading to optimize CPU usage.

    Security Threats

    JVM (Java Virtual Machine) is an engine providing a runtime environment. As the first Java security mechanism, it avoids pointers to allow specific access rules for each application.

    Java Community

    Java isn’t only a common choice for enterprises. It is also in rapid evolution, adding and modifying features to improve performances. As a result, there is a vast Java community sharing updates, advice, and pieces of code.
