If you choose back-end developers for hire, you should first decide on your business needs, technology requirements, and project budget.

While many tools are available for building a server infrastructure, choosing the right tools for your specific needs is essential to make the process efficient.
What are the main tasks and responsibilities of back-end developers?
There are specific requirements you should prepare to find professional back-end developers for hire. When hiring back-end developers, we focus on back-end developers’ solid technical expertise, analytical thinking, and collaboration skills. However, every experienced back-end developer performs a number of tasks and responsibilities daily, such as:
- Build and maintain websites and decide how best to develop intuitive and user-friendly prototypes and turn them into websites
- Understand cross-platform functionality and compatibility
- Write clean and easily maintainable code to produce sustainable apps
- Perform QA testing to ensure UI/UX optimization
- Assess website performance and scalability, adjusting code as necessary
- Troubleshoot and debug
- Ensure ongoing support and provide mentorship for junior developers
How do you ensure proper back-end developers’ management?
We focus on transparent and direct customer-to-team communication. Thus, we always assign our reliable PMs to participate in your internal project, who will control the process from start to finish. We also build team spirit, motivate and help the back-end developers with all work-specific issues.
With our extensive expertise in the IT industry, we provide the most workable practices to ensure smooth and continuous work with consistent results. We work iteratively, so we plan ahead and eliminate all potential bottlenecks early. So, if you decide to hire back-end developers at Northell, please note that even if you don’t have the management skills or time to oversee everything, we will take care of efficient management and take this task on our shoulders.
What is the best collaboration model for hiring back-end developers?
The choice of collaboration model depends on your unique project size, the scope of work, and available resources. For example, if you outsource full-cycle product development, you will have a shared team of specialists with direct management and flexible pricing (fixed or hourly). This model is best suited for small and large-scale projects with or without a clear vision of future project goals.
If you choose team augmentation, you can assign specific specialists for your ongoing project to fulfill the particular scope of tasks. This model best suits mid-size and large projects with no clearly defined scope. The customer usually pays the developer’s salary and vendor fee for this model.
Where can I find backend developers for hire if I’m on a tight budget?
The best way to find cost-effective back-end developers without compromising on the quality of work is to outsource software development to reputable software development companies offshore with a reasonable quality-to-cost ratio.
At Northell, we ensure flexible collaboration models to provide suitable cooperation terms within your budget and timeline (product development outsourcing and team augmentation) with several contract types (dedicated team, fixed price, time & material). We are ready to consult you on the best option based on a project timeline, requirements, and budget. Moreover, we choose the most cost-efficient technologies and development practices during software development to ensure a budget-friendly development process.
