"Terrific partner that has been instrumental in helping us scale from an MVP to series A"
Very well-vetted, high-quality candidates, ensure that I don't waste time interviewing unqualified people. They also make payroll a breeze and allow us to offer competitive benefits packages and provide hardware to our employees. They help find solutions that work for you rather than just making up the numbers and building a funnel.

"Took all the hassle out of finding great talent"
Revelo manages the entire process for you. They found candidates; responded and adjusted their search based on my feedback; scheduled interviews; etc. After spending an inordinate amount of time trying to find the talent we needed in-house -- and honestly not doing a great job of it -- they got us a developer we're thrilled with.

"Helped us find engineers quickly - great communication with our team"
The speed at which they were able to source engineers. We were able to find fullstack engineers that will stay with our company just like regular full-time employees. They come at a competitive price-point compared to other agencies.

Tips for Hiring Golang developers

Golang is a powerful, high-level programming language created by Google’s Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson. It’s more commonly known as Go and was designed to be syntactically comparable to the C programming language. However, Golang has many features that C lacks, including memory safety, structural typing, garbage collection, and CSP-style concurrency. Due to these robust features, many companies are looking to spearhead their programming projects by hiring these developers.

Hiring Golang developers can benefit any technology-focused business, but finding the right talent for the job can be challenging. The highly competitive technology market means finding and hiring these developers with the necessary skills and experience can present unique difficulties for hiring managers and team leads.

This article covers what Golang development is and what to look for when hiring Golang developers. It also provides interview questions to ask, tips on writing an attractive job description and discusses how Revelo can help you hire top talent for your team. 

What Is Golang Development?

Golang is an open-source and easy-to-learn programming language with several powerful features, such as built-in concurrency, an impressive standard library, and a large ecosystem of partners, communities, and tools. Golang also has an active and growing community and easy-to-read documentation. It has helped many big-name companies create powerful applications, including Google, PayPal, Capital One, Meta, Microsoft, Netflix, and Riot Games.

Golang was initially created with cloud-based programming in mind, meaning it is the perfect tool for creating and maintaining cloud services. If you work in a cloud programming environment, consider hiring a Golang developer. However, because Golang is a multipurpose language, you can use it to supplement many project types, including web development, DevOps support, data science, and more.  

What Does a Golang Developer Do?

The responsibilities of a Golang developer differ and are often determined by their specific company, position, and project. However, there are a few standard responsibilities that most Golang developers have, including:

  • Building applications that are optimized, scalable, and modular
  • Developing and coding on the back end to create components
  • Connecting web applications and web services
  • Troubleshooting and debugging issues to optimize performance
  • Staying current in technology solutions
  • Providing technical documents with code documentation and other inputs
  • Participating in code reviews

Golang Developer Salary

Costs to hire Golang developers can vary depending on education, experience, and other external and internal factors. Glassdoor's annual average salary for a mid-level Golang developer with four to six years of experience in the U.S. is $103,452. 

While developers in Latin American countries are equally skilled, the lower cost of living means they usually earn 30% to 50% less than their U.S. counterparts, with salaries varying based on location and experience. Revelo provides a cost-effective solution while offering highly qualified, pre-vetted Latin American developers.

How to Write a Job Description for Golang Developers

A well-crafted job description can ensure that you find and hire the best Golang developers for your project. Job descriptions should include basic information, including the job title, responsibilities, and work hours, but it’s also important to include more in-depth information. This can include:

  • Required qualifications and experience: Golang development requires proficiency in the Golang programming language, knowledge of templating and other tools, good written and verbal communication skills, strong attention to detail, and some knowledge of Java and Python. Candidates should also have at least two years of experience, strong analytical skills, and a portfolio to showcase past work.
  • Desired skills and traits: Include a bulleted list of technical, hard, and soft skills, which may include problem-solving, collaboration, and the ability to work in a team.
  • Job responsibilities: Provide a skimmable list of expected duties, which may include working within a cloud environment, troubleshooting issues, and more.
  • Benefits:  Cover 401(k), pension plans, medical coverage, flexible working hours, and vacation time. The more robust your benefits package is, the more attractive the job.

Your job description should match the skills and experience you require for your project. For example, if your project is simple and requires only a few standard Golang developer skills, you should hire an entry-level developer. Hire an intermediate- or senior-level developer if your project is more complex and requires a stronger skillset.

Interview Questions for Golang Developers

Paired with a well-crafted job description, knowing the right interview questions to ask will help you find and hire the best Golang developers. Ask questions about a candidate’s background, education, experience, and those that test their hard and soft skills. Below are a few examples of what you should ask and why.  

What are the benefits of Golang over other languages?

This question gauges a candidate’s familiarity with Golang, their passion for the language, and why they chose to learn it over other languages. This question will also help you determine a candidate’s commitment to Golang and career advancement. 

Your candidate should be able to give you an in-depth outline of Golang’s features and what sets it apart from similar programming languages. For example, Golang has many features C lacks, including garbage collection, structural typing, and concurrency support.

What are Golang interfaces?

Golang interfaces are an essential feature that any candidate should be familiar with. Asking this question will further test your candidate’s familiarity with Golang. Your candidate should provide an in-depth answer about Golang interfaces, what they are, how they’re created, and how they’re used.

Tell me about a time you were stuck and how you managed to figure things out.

This question assesses a candidate’s problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, which are important in Golang development. Look out for candidates who place the blame on others and take no responsibility for their shortcomings. Instead, your candidate should be confident in their response and be able to answer truthfully, even if they had to ask for help with solving their problem.

These questions can be a great starting point in your interview process. However, your interview should thoroughly examine your candidate’s background and other aspects of their experience.
