How to Hire the Best React Developers

Before hiring React developers, it’s best for employers and recruiters to gain a good understanding of the React framework, the benefits of hiring a React developer, and how to hire the best React developers in the highly competitive tech landscape.

 

Maintained by Facebook and a community of developers and companies, React was initially released on May 29, 2015. React is a JavaScript library used for building User Interfaces (UI). There are two parts to this definition:

  • React is a library, not a framework. Developers would often need to use more or other libraries to form a solution as it is not a complete solution.
  • React is used to create really good UI. UI is the ‘front’ of the software or machine that users see and interact with. If a device that a business is going to create understands JavaScript, developers can use react to develop a UI for it.

 

Findings from the 2018 Developer Skills Report found that React has the biggest gap between the developers who are knowledgeable of React and the employers who need developers with this skill set. As such, React developers have a high demand in the market today and will continue to steadily grow in the future.

Why should you hire a React Developer?

Creating UI for a device or application is made easier and more efficient with React. Here are three benefits:

 

Declarative

Creating interactive UI is easier as you describe what to render. React will efficiently update and render the right components whenever your data changes. Code are more predictable and can be easily debugged with a declarative view.

 

Component-based

With React, developers can build encapsulated components then use it to make complex UI.

 

Applicable to any code

With React, developers can create new features without rewriting the current code. In addition, react can render on the server using mobile apps using React Native and Node.

What technical skills should you look for when hiring React developers?

When hiring React developers, recruiters and employers must evaluate a candidate’s technical skills and the candidate’s compatibility with the given responsibility. Aside from a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or any related field, here are the basic and ideal technical skills employers and recruiters should look for:

 

Firm understanding of JavaScript
A good React developer must have a solid knowledge of basic concepts in JavaScript. These ES6 are also essential:

  • Variables and scoping
  • Arrays and objects
  • Array methods
  • Functions and arrow functions
  • DOM manipulation and event handlers
  • Higher order functions and callback functions
  • Prototypal inheritance and object creation
  • ‘Class’ keyword

 

Knowledgeable in HTML and CSS
All front-end developers are familiar using HTML and CSS as these are major elements in creating the basics of front-end development and are good advantages for developing UI. React developers should then be able to:

  • Code semantic HTML tags
  • Code CSS selectors
  • Apply a CSS reset
  • Understand the CSS box model and know how to reset to border-box
  • Know the CSS flexbox layout  
  • Apply responsive web principles

 

Basic knowledge of the Android and iOS development
Hire a skilled React developer who is also knows the basics of Swift, Java, and Objective-C. Sometimes, it is also important to use tools from the native side to make an app work.

 

Broad knowledge of tools and technologies
A good React developer must know useful tools and technologies that he or she can use to create good and responsive applications. As such, it is important for a React developer to learn and keep up-to-date with the latest trends. Here are the most essential tools a React developer should know:

  • Bitrise - used for better workflows and increase automation
  • Sentry error tracking - used to fix crashes and monitor in real-time
  • Hockeyeapp - allows real-time crash reporting, manage testers, collect user feedback, and more
  • Enzyme - a set of tools used to test React applications
  • ESLint - checks if a code is written according to JavaScript patterns
  • Redux - an open-source JavaScript library used to manage the application state
  • Jest - a ready-to-use, zero-configuration tool used to test JavaScript code

How much is the usual rate for React Developers?

Here’s a quick comparison of a React developer’s salary and hourly rates based on four different countries. All salaries and hourly rates are based on IT Jobs Watch, Neuvoo, and PayScale.

 

  Average React Developer Annual Salary Average React Developer Hourly Rate
United Kingdom GBP 55,000 GBP 47.50
United States USD 112,250 USD 57.56
Canada CAD 108,625 CAD 55.71
Australia AUD 63,871 AUD 30

 

To significantly reduce hiring and operations costs, many businesses outsource their software development by partnering with trusted IT outsourcing agencies.

 

At Cloud Employee, we aim to help small to large businesses with their increasing need to find alternative solutions to expand operations without no risk and hassle. To make IT outsourcing in the UK and around the world more accessible and convenient, we offer competitive industry rates for hiring skilled offshore React developers in as fast as two weeks.

 

To give you an idea on average offshore rates, here’s a helpful guide on offshore developer rates from different outsourcing regions.

What interview techniques should you use to hire the best React developer?

When you hire skilled React developers, remember that the goal of your interview is not to intimidate candidates with difficult questions, rather it is to gain a full assessment of their skills during the limited amount of time.

 

As such, here are a few recommended interview techniques and questions that recruiters or hiring managers can apply or ask to select the best React developers from the rest.

 

Ask them to describe the structure of their recent project
Examine your candidate’s abilities by asking them to describe and explain the most recent project they have done. If needed, they may also illustrate their project using a sheet of paper or board. By having them do this, recruiters can determine two things.

 

First, recruiters can identify immediately a React developer’s knowledge and experience with React and software development. In addition, it can also show what additional skills a candidate may possess such as good leadership skills. Aside from these, you can also check the candidate’s level of involvement with the project with how they can clearly discuss their project in depth and in detail.

 

Second, recruiters can see if a candidate can clearly explain a technical concept. Is it understandable for a non-technical person? In addition, check the candidate’s non-verbal cues as well such as a confident gesture or posture to assess if a candidate good personal attributes such as public speaking and adaptability. The ability to explain technical ideas or processes to a non-tech person is a necessary skill to have especially if you are looking for someone in a leadership role.

 

Conduct technical tests
Many would think this is already part of a developer’s interview process, however, only a few companies conduct technical tests. To thoroughly screen and assess candidates, candidates must go through a technical test. Employers may opt to conduct online programming tests that give employers an idea on how a candidate thinks. When hiring React developers, it is best to always look for someone who doesn’t only know how to code, but also how to solve.

 

If you can’t give an online technical test, recruiters may ask candidates to show a sample code instead. This will give you A developer’s knowledge and expertise of the framework or language can already show with just an average of 5-10 lines of code (two or three sample codes).

 

Here are a few sample test questions that you can ask your candidate to code.

 

Q: Code the equivalent of the following code using React.createElement.

const element = (
 <h1 className="greeting">
   Hello, world!
 </h1>
);

A:

const element = React.createElement(
 'h1',
 {className: 'greeting'},
 'Hello, world!'
);

Q: Below is a sample code. How would you fix or improve the following component?

class App extends React.Component { 
constructor(props) {
super(props);
this.state = {
name: this.props.name || 'Anonymous'
}
}
render() {
return (
<p>Hello {this.state.name}</p>
);
}
}

A: There are several possible ways to solve this. A developer may remove the state and use props, implement getDerivedStateFromProps, or (preferably) change to a function components.

Q: JSX, short for JavaScript XML, is a type of file that uses JavaScript with HTML like a template syntax. The file creates robust applications and boosts its performance. Can you give a simple example of JSX?

A:

render(){
return(
<div>
<h1> Hello World </h1>
</div>
);
}

What is the dedicated hiring model?

The model enables in-house teams to easily expand or reduce team members.
