Tips for working with and hiring Frontend Engineers

Understand your project needs

Before you start the hiring process, have a clear understanding of your project requirements. Make sure you know the specific skills and technologies your project requires, such as proficiency in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and frontend frameworks like React or Angular.

Check their technical skills

Not all frontend engineers specialize in the same technologies. It's important to verify that the freelancer has experience in the specific technologies your project requires. This can often be verified by reviewing their portfolio on Contra.

Communication is essential

Establish clear communication channels with the frontend engineer. Discuss your project's requirements, timeline, and deliverables upfront. Regular updates on the project's progress can help prevent any misunderstandings or issues that may arise. Remember to communicate through Contra's platform to keep all project details in one place.

Set clear milestones

For larger projects, it can be helpful to break the project into smaller, manageable parts or milestones. Each milestone can then be reviewed and approved separately, ensuring that the project is on the right track and that the quality of work meets your standards.

How to hire Frontend Engineers
