Top 5 Things to Consider while Hiring a Java Developer

by Tech Geekk writer
The demand for Java developers is at an all-time high, especially in companies working on the trending application projects and applets. They play a pivotal role in carrying out a multitude of activities throughout the application development lifecycle, from concept, design to right through the testing. They offer an extended arm to the team with acute problem solving and analytical skills.

And, this makes it vital that the Java developers you hire have the required software development lifecycle efficiency as the essential  prerequisite. They should also have programming skills in server and client side languages, which both can be used with Java. They must be capable of intricately evaluating the programs and applicationsthey will develop for you. Ensuring bug-free operations before delivering the applications or programs is also a must.

Here are the top 5 things you must consider while you hire Java developers for your company:

1. Java 8 Proficiency
One of the most important competency for a Java developer in present-day’s time, though being four years old and having subsequent versions released. Almost all the Java development jobs require Java 8 skills, and if the developer you hire does not have them, then it will be challenging to get advanced Java applications developed.

2. Knowledge of Spring Framework (Spring Boot)
Spring is a necessary skill a Java developer must possess these days. Most companies prefer using Spring frameworks such as Spring Cloud, Spring MVC, and Spring Boot for web application development, REST APIs, and microservices.

3. Unit Testing Skills
The common thing which distinguishes a good Java developer from an average one is having unit testing in your Java developer’s skill set. Professional developers must be able to write unit tests for their code. It has also come a long way with various unit, integration and automation testing tools available for the developers.

4. Kotlin Expertise
Not only it is an excellent language from JetBrains, the backbone of IntelliJ IDEA, but also the official Android development language as stated by Google in 2017. This proficiency of your developer will improve the company’s productivity along with assisting you in Android development. 

5. Acumen in Microservices
With the architecture of modern applications changing constantly, many Java development companies are shifting to microservices from monolithic applications. It is imperative that Java developers must have an understanding of microservices architecture. They must also know how to create microservices in Java to leverage this recent wave.

Along with all the above competencies, the developer that you select must have a vast skill set of software development tools and technology. The software services experience in Java development including J2EE, Struts, JSF, EJB, Servlets and JSP under the hood.
