How to hire React developers

Looking for a skilled React developer to join your tech team? Here’s some expert guidance on how and where to tap into this talent pool.

What skills to look for when hiring a React developer?

  • As React is a JavaScript framework, knowledge of JavaScript fundamentals is essential. Familiarity with TypeScript is also useful.
  • Familiarity with other popular frontend frameworks, such as Vue.js , since they share many overlapping principles.
  • React is primarily used to build interactive user interfaces and web applications. As such, a thorough knowledge of semantic HTML and CSS is important, besides experience in JavaScript.
  • Proficiency in related technologies such as HTML and CSS, that is often used to build web applications.
  • Familiarity with popular JavaScript libraries such as Redux (used for state management) and MobX.
  • Web development experience, including RESTful APIs, HTTP protocols, and browser compatibility.

How to broaden your talent pool when hiring a React developer

When hiring React developers, you can widen the net by looking for developers familiar with other front-end JavaScript frameworks, who should easily be able to pick up React. This includes Express.js, Next.js, Angular, Vue.js and less commonly Nuxt.js.

  • Can you walk me through the process of setting up a React project from scratch?
  • Have you used any testing frameworks in conjunction with React, and if so, which ones?

What is React?

React was created by Meta to meet its need for a flexible, fast and scalable JavaScript framework in the browser. Its simple mental model of one-way data binding, functional approach and component-driven architecture resonates with many companies looking for an edge. It’s particularly well-suited for building for speed at scale, allowing developers to create reusable UI components, leading to more efficient rendering and better performance.

It’s a popular choice among developers looking for a powerful front-end tool — React stormed into the lead of the framework wars and shouldn’t relinquish that anytime soon.
