  • Toptal 
  • Hired

It depends on your needs which option is going to be better for you. Take into account your project, timelines, budget, quality of web or app development services you’d like to get, etc. 

Now, let’s consider some of the above-mentioned options in detail. 

Custom Software Development Firm

This option is for you if you have a budget and you’d like to ensure the quality of web/app development is as good as possible. On the other hand, you don’t have the time or resources to build your in-house team of developers. 

Here’s one important thing. While choosing a company for your development project you need to make sure it’s actually worth your time and attention. 

How? Create a list of top companies that specialize in the type of development you need. For this, you can go to Google and type in the keywords related to your needs. It means if you have a design-related project, you need to look for web design companies. If you need an application, you should look for companies that specialize in app development. 

Actually, it’s not a very good idea to order design services from the app development company and vice versa. 

The next step. Create a spreadsheet and put there all the companies that you’ve found on Google. Decide on 4-5 criteria based upon which you’ll be evaluating each agency. Check the websites of all companies, their social media networks, Google My Business profiles, read reviews about them on Yelp, etc. Make notes in your spreadsheet. 

Once you do this, you’ll have a clear picture of what company is going to be a suitable choice for you. 

Find a Developer on Freelance Platforms 

If you are looking for some cheaper options and have more time, a deep understanding of web development, and suitable skills to manage the whole process on your own, this option is for you. 

There are many different freelance platforms where you can find skilled developers. As we’ve already mentioned, Hired, Gigster, Upwork, Toptal, GitHub Jobs, PeoplePerHour are some of them. 

Again, if you have time, you can register on all of them and see all the options there. Create a spreadsheet, add there all the info about all the developers you’ll find. Mention their skills, strong points, week points, portfolio, price. Analyze all the info. Make a well-informed choice. 

Find the Developers You Need on LinkedIn 

LinkedIn can be a great place to search for developers. It provides you with good tools for a very specific and targeted search. 

All you need is to go to a search bar, enter the keyword related to your needs, apply some filters like location, experience level, company, title, etc., and hit enter. LinkedIn will return you a great deal of results. Find people that meet your needs and add them to your professional network. 

Once they accept your invitation. Send them a message with your inquiry. It’s really that easy.
