Hire Java Developers

Most organizations in the world use Java in one way or another.

According to TIOBE, Java is the 2nd most popular programming language in the world. Since 2002, it has occupied top positions in the ranking, and now it owns as much as 11.17% of the industry. Java is a proven choice and whatever ideas or tasks you might have certified developers at Echo with years of experience can deliver your projects with great devotion and meeting high standards.

The right Java development company for your project

Many software developers around the world are striving to master Java technologies and frameworks to perfection.

According to ZDNet journalist Liam Tung, there are 7.6 million Java specialists on the modern market, which is roughly 20% of all programmers on the planet. Therefore, this prevalence of Java helps to find a professional who is ideal for the project among millions of talents. You can catch a big fish only if a pond is big enough.

So, how to find a qualified Java developer with the proper knowledge and skills?

The best option is to turn to professional recruiters, who have proven channels and tools for finding tech personnel in the IT industry. But you should understand that different headhunters use different search methods, and you never know for sure if they will be really efficient and profitable in your case. And the whole process may take several months.

There is an alternative option – an independent search on hiring platforms such as:

  • Upwork. 27 Best Freelance Java Developers For Hire In August 2022.
  • Toptal. 11 Best Freelance Java Experts [Hire in 48 Hours].
  • UpStack Scaling Fast? Hire World-Class Java Developers with us.
  • Turing. Hire Java Developers Remotely with Turing  | 1 Million+ Vetted.
  • Arc.dev Hire the Best Java Engineer.
  • Guru. Hire Freelance Java Developers & Programmers Online.
  • Fiverr. Top 16 Freelance java coders for Hire.

But it also does not guarantee success. Either way, the choice is yours.

If you decide to cooperate with an IT staffing or outsourcing company, the main thing is to take a responsible approach to its choice. We advise considering three essential criteria when looking for an agency: where the company is located, what terms offer and how much its services would cost you.

Pay attention to the agencies experienced in hiring Java developers, which understand the specifics of your particular project. Numerous recommendations, including from your industry competitors, is also a good indicator of professionalism.

Echo experts, who have been in the software development and IT staffing market since 2013, are confident in the power of positive feedback. Often, such recommendations of satisfied customers lead to the establishment of a new partnership.

So, if the selected vendor has cases relevant to your projects, 5 minutes would be enough for you to understand whether its qualifications are suitable for solving your issues. For example, on the Echo website, you can find a portfolio and a detailed description of each project with an indication of partner brands. You can contact our clients anytime to get their opinion about us and make sure you are in good hands.

Current demand for Java programmers in the developed countries

The subject-matter Java experts are always valuable because they can adapt to changes in the industry and quickly master everything new.

At the same time, the situation in the IT market is not all rosy as there are only 4% of staff who are open to new work, which is catastrophically tiny. The fact that 60% of organizations require Java specialists right now explains high competition in the market.

According to the forecast of industry experts, the situation will not stabilize in the coming years, and one of the reasons for this is the massive transition of businesses to the digital world under the influence of the pandemic.

The average Java developer salary in the world

The average developer’s salary is the best indicator of the demand for their services in the market.

According to the latest data, in the United States, Java specialists receive an average of $110K annually, in the United Kingdom and Australia – $70K, in South America – $25K. However, in India, their services are the most affordable as the average salary is $12K / per year. As for Ukraine and other post-Soviet countries, a business can hire medium-level technical personnel for approximately 30 thousand dollars per year.

Keep in mind that these salary indicators are not fixed and can vary because of many factors: fluctuations in demand and supply, the geography of services (for example, in Eastern Europe and the USA, salary is calculated on an hourly or yearly basis, in the CIS — on a monthly basis), individual requirements of companies to applicants. A couple of aspects are essential in the final salary numbers: the level of professionalism of the applicants, ability to present their skills at an interview and during the probation period.

We expect the growth of demand for Java experts over the next five years. It will lead to a reassessment of values by the specialists themselves. They will become more demanding in terms of work conditions and their compensation.

Do you want to find a competent developer for a long-term project and not overpay? Then you should start your search now.

How much does it cost to hire full-time Java developers in Ukraine?

The most obvious answer is to get the real numbers from the local IT platforms or job boards like DOU. It can be $2,000, $3,500 or $6,000, which indicates the monthly salary of the developer in USD:

  • Sr Java/React Developer at Anwendo ($4500–6500).
  • Java developer at Mifort Solutions ($1500–2500).
  • Senior/Middle Java Engineer at TheRaven ($2500–5000).
  • Senior Software Engineer – Java (d/f/m) at Omio ($6000-8000).
  • Middle Java Engineer at Open Bet ($2000–3500).

But, there’s always a but, as you know.

The biggest mistake CTOs, product managers and startup founders make when hiring remotely and comparing developers is they ignore the embedded costs. In fact, there are numerous and substantial overhead costs (up to 50%) on top of the salaries mentioned above. For example:

  • Recruiting and HR management.
  • Paid vacations, public holidays and sick leaves.
  • Payroll, taxes and legal support.
  • Workplace setup, hardware and software.
  • Professional education reimbursement.

And if you choose a hard way to hire Java programmers directly on your own, you need to take care of these tasks.

As an alternative, you can work with a tech partner such as Echo and focus on your core business goals instead. Going this route will save you a considerable amount of time and energy.

OK. Let’s get started. What are the next steps?

With Echo, hiring a full-time Java developer or even the entire back-end development team is a simple process:

  1. Gathering Requirements. We start by hearing out your requirements, including project details, job descriptions, team size, workflow and cultural key points. No one-size-fits-all questionnaires.
  2. Selection and Validation. Our HR and tech experts thoroughly interview candidates. You approve each developer and give us the green light to hire them. Once all parties come to an agreement, the work starts.
  3. Launch and Ongoing Support. Our involvement in the process doesn’t end when we deliver a needed talent to you. We act as a mediator between the new hire and you to ensure a healthy and long-lasting relationship.

Unlike many of our competitors, we don’t give you any false expectations of bringing in a bunch of senior developers the very next day. Finding, validating and hiring the right candidate always takes some time. We utilize our experience, expertise and network to make it happen as soon as feasibly possible.
