Offshore Frontend Developers and their qualities to look for
Offshore frontend developers should have a strong portfolio (work samples). They should have worked on variety of projects. They should have worked on B2B, B2C applications, new products development, SaaS applications etc.
Offshore frontend developers should have relevant specialization similar to the frontend platform your company is using. You should not choose someone generalists who tries to do everything. Specialists will do things quickly and without error.
Frontend developers are required to communicate with designers, junior frontend developers, backend developers, product architects etc. If they cannot communicate effectively they will end up misinterpreting and incorrectly implementing.
Frontend frameworks are evolving and changing at a rapid pace (EmberJS, VueJS, ValueJS, MeteorJS etc) so a frontend developer should be able to adapt quickly to latest frameworks and work on them successfully.
Strong in creativity & technical:
Frontend developers should have strong technical skills to be able to translate designs into functional user interfaces and a strong creativity to be able to develop beautiful, practical and user-friendly applications. Without a creative skill, they cannot produce aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly applications. And without technical mastery of the platform, language and frameworks, they will not be able to produce a user interface that performs well and is perfect.
Good Frontend developers shouldn’t be the one who simply do exactly what they are told to. They should be able to conceptualize the goals of the story or feature that’s being pushed and then make adjustments to achieve that goal.
Sense of UI/UX:
For a good frontend developer the most critical aspect comes down to their UI/UX sensibility. It may seem surprising because they’re going to code your product, not design it, but without the UI/UX sensibility they will end up with something that may be technically correct but not what you had in mind.
