What is the process of getting hired? Every development company is looking for passionate programmers. You should have a little bit knowledge of how the project works and how to work with the team as well. The most important thing is that it’s a full-time job, so you should be available for hiring. The companies will always prefer candidates who are:
- develop user interfaces (UI) for modern rich Internet application with the latest front-end technologies;
- experience of developing web pages using HTML, CSS;
- coordinate and work with back-end developers; you should understand some of the back-end technologies to efficiently design applications;
- complete client side service implementations;
- have a basic knowledge of implement a complete user interface in the form of a mobile and desktop web applications;
- design HTML templates using AngularJS.
Above I described an AngularJS job, which is inherent in almost every development company, and now you have a question: how to get such a job? First, you have to understand the job description and its responsibilities. For example, when reading any advertisement with a hired developer, the employer indicates the requirements, what can be your advantage and of course the responsibilities. Experience is almost always one of the main requirements, but there are others that cannot be turned a blind eye: spoken and written English at intermediate level and above, designing agile architecture and implementing reliable solutions, understanding how to find a balance between quality and performance, passion for clean code (standardjs, eslint, flow). What will be your advantage? Higher technical education; knowledge of testing basics and tools; ability to write technical documentation; knowledge in development with React and Vue also. If we talk about responsibilities, they are usually as written above, but we can add more participation in the implementation, maintenance and improvement of existing products; participation in technical discussions with the development team; code review, test writing. Thank God, the employer always indicates not only what is required of you, but also what he or she offers. That is, participation in work on promising international projects; competitive salary; flexible schedule and the ability to distance working; the highest standard of development; professional team. Such promises fascinate every developer and he or she is ready to fulfill all the conditions of employment. Usually hiring consists of 2 stages: a small test task and an interview. There are some focused areas in AngularJS by interviewing: creating custom directives, Angular concepts, routing, REST exposure, creating custom services, working with different controllers. I advise you to make sure you know this information for a successful interview.
