Questions on recruiting Front-End/JavaScript developers:

1. Are Front-End/JavaScript developers hard to find?

JavaScript has become synonymous with web development. Paired with technologies like Node.js, it is also a popular server-side solution development tool. Therefore, programmers of almost any kind should make it a point to include at least some JS experience into their resumes. At first glance, it may seem that there are many JavaScript developers. However, it takes rigorous candidate screening to find the right specialist for the task at hand.
One should make a point of analyzing the technology stack listed in the candidate's resume. Too many irrelevant skills might mean that the candidate is trying to compensate for insufficient mastery of JavaScript and related technologies with other skills.
Primarily, it's employers in the IT sector—outsourcing and product companies of various size based in Ukraine or abroad. But they are not alone: openings for specialists of this kind are available outside of IT, too, e.g. in banks and logistics companies.
We aim to conduct a thorough candidate screening, starting with public profiles/resumes and only then proceeding to interviews, which help determine whether the specialist meets the requirements and discover their motivation and values. A lot of work will be done before you table the job offer: we will contact 100–600 professionals, interview the top 15–35, and refer to you only those who are guaranteed to meet your expectations. Finding the specialist that will suit your specific needs in the vast pool of Front-End/JavaScript developers is by no means easy. However, INDIGO Tech Recruiters has enough experience under its belt to fill even the most challenging vacancies.
