Because a great resumé doth not always beget a great developer

FAQ

  • Why hire remote developers?

    During the last decade, the remote part of the IT labor market has been constantly on the rise. Internet speed is skyrocketing, net coverage is practically ubiquitous, and laptops are weightless. Why should you stay in the inconvenient office when you can be just as productive on the beach? — think app developers. Why should I rent an office when I can afford not to? — ponder startup owners. Hence the trend.

     

    Let’s now enumerate some clear benefits of remote software engineer jobs for employers and employees.

     

    Developers’ remote bonuses

     

    • Work-life balance. It’s important to pursue this balance daily — to have time for coding and health, recreation, and recharging. Long commute lines, traffic jams, and other uncomfortable daily work issues often boost depression development. When you suddenly realize 4 hours of your day get lost on the road, there’s a strong desire for a teleport to be invented. Until it’s not, try remote.

     

    • Autonomy. As a rule, remote developers are autonomous and don’t have to report to bosses every working hour. Results are the key to success, and discipline opens the way to good results.

     

    • Time efficiency. Remote mode allows better time management and workflow organization.

     

    • Productivity. No distractions, micromanagement, petty water cooler conflicts — what’s not to like? These favorable conditions greatly boost the remote performance of devs for hire. Unless you’re not tailored for unofficial work surroundings, that is.

     

    Employers’ remote bonuses

     

    • Cost sparing. According to the latest research, startups can save up to 1000 dollars yearly on one remote worker. Multiply that by the average company size.

     

    • Work automatization. When on the remote, you can’t avoid rationalization, digitalization, and automatization. If you handle it properly (conquer Jira and Agile, organize your documentation flow, etc.), your work will be much faster and more efficient.

     

    • Talent pool access. Looking for developers to hire onsite, you’re strangled with geography. Remote allows you to find free hands around the globe.

     

    • Flexibility. See above. No office, no strings attached; everyone works at their convenient time with some necessary overlaps.

     

    • Happier and healthier employees. They boost your company’s reputation and are more productive and committed to your startup (because you’re praising their productivity).
  • How much do remote web developers make?

    All the remote developers’ salaries depend on multiple factors at once. What can they be?

     

    • Languages of your proficiency, full-stack, front-end, or back-end specialization, years of experience.

     

    • Location (quite often, you’re tied to your country’s IT market coordinates, even if you work remotely);

     

    • Location of your company/employer;

     

    • Extra skills (soft/communication skills, language proficiency, the experience of mentorship, etc.).
  • How are Lemon.io’s remote developers different?

    Lemon.io is a talent marketplace vetting all the remote developers they offer to clients.

     

    Here’s how we vet the candidates:

     

    • reference check;

     

    • soft skills check;

     

    • hard skills check with senior engineers who we contact for screening tasks;

     

    • English proficiency check.

     

    Those who pass these checks get into our database of talent for hire. You, as a client, can contact us via the client form, and we will arrange a discovery call within 1-2 business days, where our Sales specialists will carefully jot down all your requirements and needs. In 48 to 72 hours, we will return with your first candidates — and you’ll be able to arrange an intro call with them. Typically, developers start working on their projects a week after completing all the formalities.

  • How long does it take to hire a remote developer?

    The answer can vary depending on the hiring mode, client’s budget, geography, business type, and experience level of the developer in question, as well as other factors. If you need a Middle or a Senior remote dev with solid experience, it pays off to collaborate with vetting platforms like Lemon.io, as the hiring process within such platforms can take up to a week (and that’s quite fast). We filter all the candidates and offer only specialists who’ve passed several vetting stages.

  • What happens if the developer I hire fails to work out?

    Sometimes, there’s just no chemistry between you and your contractor. However, if you hire developers with Lemon.io, you’re lucky since all the unsatisfactory candidates will be substituted by the platform as soon as possible. You just need to claim your need for substitution to the Customer Success department — and wait for the new professional to catch up after the previous one. PS. Detailed feedback about the unsatisfactory contractor will significantly ease finding a candidate more suitable for your needs.

  • How to get a remote job as a web developer?

    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the overall employment volume of web developers has grown 8% from 2019 to 2029. By 2028, nearly 75% of all teams worldwide will be predominantly remote. Web developers work remotely astoundingly often. Web engineers can organize a workplace everywhere — just give them a table, a chair, and a Wi-Fi connection.

     

    Skip the first two. If you want to secure your work and get offers frequently, try registering on vetting platforms like Lemon.io.

     

    After a series of vetting procedures (online language proficiency, soft skills, and hard skills tests), pre-vetted candidates register in the database and may expect an offer reasonably quickly. To learn more about our vibes and conditions, click here.

  • What does the vetting process look like?

    At Lemon.io, all the developers willing to join our community primarily pass four vetting stages. First, our internal specialists check professional credentials and arrange online interviews with the ones who pass the initial resume screening. The first one will be to check English language skills (that’s the lingua franca at Lemon.io since all the clients are mainly US- or UK-based) and soft skills (communication, planning, time management, empathy, remote work experience). For all who pass this trial, we offer a hard skills test. Our brightest experts arrange an online meeting with live coding sessions. After the hard skills test, only 4% of the candidates remain in our talent pool — and we start looking for a job for them. Our clients can hire a programmer online, choosing from a pool of professionals.

  • What happens if I don’t pass the vetting?

    That also can happen, and it’s certainly not a tragedy. Our vetting is quite strict (because we want to provide only top talent to our customers). If candidates don’t cope with some tech tasks, they can try to win over the Lemon.io vetting later, with more competency and competitive advantages.

  • What don’t you have to worry about when you hire remote developers?

    Remote developers are a perfect choice in our digitalized epoch when laptops are compact and quick, and every web engineer can choose a convenient workplace to their liking practically everywhere in the world. Besides, remote working mode brings employers significant cost cuts: according to recent research, startups can save up to $ 10 601 00 on remote workers. Let’s look at other benefits remote workers can bring you.

     

    Cost control. If you hire developers from countries with lower prices and cost of living, you can save your budget since their rates can be considerably lower than, for instance, in the US.

     

    Bigger talent pool. If you bet on remote developers, nothing can stop you from hiring worldwide. Don’t focus exclusively on the USA or UK: European developers have high work ethics and labor standards; they are meticulous, proficient, and way more affordable.

     

    Get the perfect match. Find a developer who will match all your business and schedule requirements. Investing in offshore engineers provides you with easier access to devs specialized in your industry and the technology you use.

     

    Achieve top productivity. Get a quick and dextrous squad of IT professionals. According to the Airtasker report, offshore employees waste less time on unproductive tasks and play hooky than they would in the office. Hire web developers remotely and enjoy their workflow
