We are assuming that you are in search of a web developer since you have landed on our page. No worries. We can help you. Although hiring web developers from an offshore agency is a daunting task, keeping these tips in mind can make your job as easy as pie.
So, wait no more and follow our step-by-step guide to find the best web developer for your project within your budget.
Tip 1 – Specify your business challenges and project budget
You need to understand that all websites are different from each other and require distinct expertise and knowledge from a developer’s end. Some web projects can be very simple with a lesser number of pages, a CTA button, a contact us form, and so on. Mostly these types of websites are template-based. On the other hand, there are some projects with complicated requirements like dynamic web app development, eCommerce platform creation, chatbot integration, 3rd party API integrations, etc. For such type of project, web developers should be skilled in advanced technologies and also know cloud hosting integration. We, as a low cost web development company in Kolkata, offer web development solutions for projects of all scales and sizes. Therefore, we can help you with your project from scratch to finish.
Tip 2 – Know the developer’s skills
You may have come across the terms – front-end developers, back-end developers, and full-stack developers. These are designations given to web developers based on their coding or programming skills. You first need to understand the three types and then decide which category/categories of developers you need to hire for your project.
Back-end developers – Back-end determines how well your website loads and functions. The website infrastructure, features, and other 3rd party integrations – all are part of the back-end services. The programming languages that backend developers use are PHP, Python, Ruby, and Java.
Full-stack developers – These types of developers can build both the front-end and back-end of a website and are mostly hired by startups or low-budget companies. Though they charge higher than frontend or backend developers, hiring a full-stack developer eliminates the need for hiring two developers which is more expensive.
Tip 3 – Choose a hiring model
Generally, any website & app development company in Kolkata like us offers flexible hiring models so that it becomes easy for the clients to choose a plan that suits their project needs and budget. You can decide to hire dedicated full-time developers or part-time developers or go for project-based hiring. The dedicated hiring model is the most demanded one because here you’ll be getting a full-time website developer who will workly only on your project and you will be given complete access to manage or set project priorities.
Tip 4 – Checking the web developer’s portfolio
Before hiring a developer, the first thing you need to do is to ask for his or her years of experience and then tell him/her to share portfolio links such as Behance, Dribble, and LinkedIn. In case you hire a company, you must go to its portfolio section to check out the latest websites created by its team of developers. Taking a look at their work before hiring will help you judge their level or quality of work.
Tip 5 – Shortlist the best developers or companies
If you ask Google, “top web developers in India” or “what are the top web development companies in Kolkata”, then Google is more than happy to help. It will bring to you a list of the top companies in your selected region to narrow down your search. So, when you are planning to hire a developer or a company to build your website, the best thing is to do some thorough research and shortlist the name of the top reputed companies currently in the industry. You need to select them based on the following criteria –
- Their company website design and development since it reflects their expertise in the service. (the ones with a poor website for their own brand are not expected to deliver top-quality websites for their clients)
- Company reviews ( Google, clutch, and social media)
- Company portfolio
- Company pricing
That’s all! By keeping in mind the above 5 tips, you will surely end up hiring the best resource for your website project.
