What is the meaning of Full Stack Developer?

Logically, a full stack developer is the person who combines the abilities of both branches and can deal with wider requirements. Having one person, which is responsible for the whole structure of the product and connects backend with frontend in a coherent way - sounds attractive! However, remember that such unification cannot be the all-in-one silver bullet.

How to define a technical stack
for your Startup?

The field of web software development is vast and requires diverse specialists to create a high-quality product. There are two major elements of every web software solution:

  • Backend. This is all about the functioning of a digital product that is not visible to users and includes an operating system, servers, and databases.
  • Frontend. This is all about the visual interaction with the user (UI and UX) and usually based on several coding languages and frameworks.

What am I get if I hire a full stack developer?

The reality of hiring a full stack developer differs from the image of Shiva, where one man has many hands and can deal with several tasks simultaneously. We should clearly understand the real needs and possibilities of business before using such a web specialist. Among the pros of having a full stack developer are:

  • responsibility of a single person for the whole web structure
  • faster dealing between the frontend and backend issues
  • budget savings

In fact, those benefits actual only for small startups and businesses as bigger scales usually require more specific tasks.

There are cons of relying on a full stack developer:

  • difficulties of finding a single specialist for different programming products and a variety of specific tasks
  • tricky assignments more often require a set of narrower engineers with a deeper understanding
  • company growth can lead to the emergence of specific roles for web specialists and highlight disadvantages of a full stack developer

Nevertheless, the cons of having a full stack developer are usually a side effect of company growth. The company’s development is a pleasant outcome compared to raised issues related to hiring another full stack developer.

Front-End vs Back-End vs Full-Stack

Creating a web product can be divided into two parts: back-end (Server Side) and front-end (User Interface). The first one is oriented on the most reliable program functioning as a technical item, while the second is focused on the visual patterns and interaction with the user. Full-stack specialist combines the abilities of both web designers and creates all the layers of a web product.

How to Hire Full Stack Developers?

The first step is to define the required skills of the potential candidates according to your demands. Write out as many specific items as you can - it is always easier to bump unwanted information rather than add something on top of it.

After skills and requirements were fully settled, pay attention to the possibilities of the supposed developer. Which programming languages do candidates should work with (NodeJS, PHP, C#, Python, Ruby)? Is he/she familiar with all core technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SCSS, SASS, LESS) and understand the difference? What about specific JavaScript libraries and frameworks (React, AngularJS, VueJS)? Additional questions about databases and operating systems are also should be included before hiring a full stack developer.

Providing specific tests

Providing specific tests with attention to particular abilities is also an obvious step. Thereafter, every company has to deal with organizational and legal issues to create stable working conditions for maximum outcomes. If the issue lies at the practical level in remote work, both outsourcing and outstaffing approaches require a detailed contract.

Good news! Almost all those steps can be skipped with the help of Orange Sputnik. We provide Staff Augmentation, which restricts annoying participation in the hiring process after the first stage. Thoughtful demands are the only task, as we accomplish other routine work instead of clients.

How to interview a Full Stack Developer?

No matter if you decided to rely on Orange Sputnik or hire a full stack web developer solely, the last step is an interview, and you should be ready for it. Generally, this phase is among the most difficult as the employer has to be satisfied by both technical skills (hard skills) and the human principles (soft skills) of the potential worker before acceptance. Personal attitude is a too specific issue to give some recommendations, but what relates to the professional side, we propose suchlike questions:

  • Which side of the project do you enjoy more: frontend or backend?
  • How hard is it to deal with both sides of the project?
  • What is your basic algorithm to accomplish full stack web development?
  • How will you organize work between backend and frontend specialists if you have grown enough to have your own team?
  • To what religious principles can you compare deadlines?
  • What is more important: quality of the product or following to deadlines? Please explain.

Even though there are no right and wrong answers to those questions, they are aimed at opening hidden sides of the potential employee.

Average Full-Stack Developer Salary
