Need a software developer

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm looking for a nice freelance software developer. It seems like I know which skills they should have (is everything in this article (Unlinked - SnowDrifter)  correct?)
I need a nice specialist for one long-term project. Where should I look for them? UpWork seems unprofessional. 
One more question: Which salary should I offer?

I unlinked the article but will leave this thread up on the chance OP is serious. Though I will be watching it closely.

@JasonBrenner I'm assuming you have an idea, but  have limited knowledge of software engineering, correct? Given the context of this post, I'll also assume you're working on a one-off of some variety

Put out job offers on sites such as linkedin, craigslist, google, indeed, career builder, facebook groups, etc.

You'll need to be more specific than specialist. Coding is a pretty broad field. Do you need a web programmer? Cloud? AI? Data management? Quantum? Mobile app development? Games? etc etc. Do they need to come into an office? Can this be done remotely? Are you working on a project that requires an NDA? You'll need to be really specific here. Someone who's good with mobile app development would be unproductive in an environment where your work load revolves around web programming.

Regarding salary: This one will depend on what skill level you need, and your(or their) area. The want for someone freelance tells me it's likely a one time project. Salary is an entirely inappropriate pay scale here. You'd be looking at either hourly, per-diem, one-time sum, or a portion of revenue from  your project (assuming it's revenue generating).

What I would suggest is this: You need to get in contact with a consultation firm who deals with whatever field matches your needs. They will help you in working out finite details and should have appropriate connections for you regarding things like lawyers and employee hiring.
