How to hire a java developer?

Skills to look for

Introduction

Java is widely known as a secure, fast and reliable platform for application development. The Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) language is designed to help programmers build web applications that have the capability to run on a single system or be distributed across servers and clients. Java is used as the server-side language for most back-end development projects, including those involving big data and Android development. Java is also commonly used for mobile app development, desktop GUI applications, game development and Big Data Technology. Companies need Java programmers to create powerful apps that can run on different operating systems and servers. The platform and the language is so popular that according to <a href="https://stackshare.io/java" target="_blank" style="color:#0057FF; text-decoration:none;">Stackshare</a> reportedly 10024 companies use Java in their tech stacks, including Uber, Airbnb, and Google.

‍

Originally developed by James Gosling at Sun Microsystems, Java was released in May 1995 as a core component of Sun Microsystems’ Java platform. Currently the latest version to be released for the Java SE platform is Java 17 LTS (long term support). 

 

Java’s write once, run anywhere (WORA) feature makes it a highly popular language. As such Java developer’s are much in demand. However, quality Java developers are difficult to hire. Only a meager 40% of Java developers actually make it past any technical round. Surveys show tech recruiters facing situations where 25% of the candidates choose to ghost the interview rounds. Compounding this issue, 35% of developers are lured away by competitors. So, even with a vast pool of applicants, finding quality Java developers is a frustrating battle.

‍

Faced with the need to hire a quality Java developer the dilemma is, do you compromise on quality for quick hiring? Or is it possible to have the best of both worlds - best closure rates and quick hiring?

‍

Default has been helping their clients hire developers in as fast as 3 days. As a result, these startups have seen their tech teams grow successfully and rapidly without sacrificing quality or time.


Must have skills

What are the skills to look for when hiring an exceptional Java developer?

1. Strong knowledge of Core Java with hands-on experience in complex systems - High-level proficiency in Core Java is a requirement when hiring Java developers. Core Java includes knowledge of OOPs (Object-Oriented Programming), Design Patterns, Interface and Serialization. Also, depending on the requirement of the client the developer should have experience in either Java 8 or Java 11.

2. Expertise in Java design patterns - Java developers need to be experienced in java design patterns. Knowing how to use the design patterns can make your code more flexible, reusable and maintainable. It is one of the most important skills to master in java because java internally follows design patterns. To become a professional software developer, you must know at least some popular solutions (i.e. design patterns) to the coding problems like - Abstract Factory pattern, Builder pattern, Singleton pattern, etc.

3. Good experience with multithreading - Java is known for its ability to execute programs on multiple threads. Multithreading in Java is commonly leveraged to improve the throughput and performance of the application, especially during CPU intensive tasks. Hence, the reason why it’s important that a Java developer is highly familiar with this skill.
 

4. Stronghold on Spring boot and microservices architecture - One of the most important skills to look for in Java developers is their knowledge of Java frameworks. It is great if the developers are familiar with the templates (pre-written codes) that are reused to create websites. In fact many companies extensively use Java frameworks for their websites, such as Amazon, eBay and many more.

5. Hands-on experience in Unix scripting language - Automating code compiling process, manipulating files or completing batch and so many repetitive tasks can be efficiently handled if a Java developer is experienced in Unix scripting language. For Java developers experience in Unix is most useful to tackle repetitive tasks that may be time consuming to execute by typing one line at a time.
