"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.

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.

Tips for Hiring Google Maps developers

Google provides several development opportunities within its platform, including the Google Maps platform. Created and maintained by Google, Google Maps allows users to discover the world around them through street view, 3D mapping, turn-by-turn directions, indoor maps, and more across internet-enabled devices. It is one of the most popular mapping platforms, with over a billion people turning to Google Maps for their directional needs every month. Businesses looking to implement Google Maps into their products and services can hire a Google Maps developer to stay on par with the competition.

While hiring a Google Maps developer provides several advantages, finding and hiring talent with the right skills and experience to succeed in the Google Maps development world can be challenging.

This article outlines what Google Map development is, what responsibilities fall on a Google Map developer's shoulders, how to craft a well-written job description to attract the best talent, and what interview questions to ask potential hires. You'll also learn about Revelo's services and how we can help you hire these developers quickly and efficiently.

What Is Google Maps Development?

Google Maps development was created to help developers create and manage real-world and real-time experiences across maps, routes, and places. These maps give users directional value, giving them insights into where to go, the best routes to get to their destination, warnings about any nearby delays, and estimated arrival times. The Google Maps platform is owned and operated by Google, which allows developers worldwide to create maps and implement map features.

The Google Maps platform comes with several tools for developers, including:

  • Maps SDKs to create dynamic maps for web and mobile applications
  • Static maps that allow users to implement static maps on websites
  • Street view imagery implementation for applications and websites
  • Elevation assessment of one or more locations
  • Routes, directions, and distance matrix APIs to improve performance in these areas
  • Road formulas to use coordinates to identify nearby roads
  • Directional assistance to provide directions for various transportation modes
  • Real-time traffic information
  • APIs and SDKs to integrate Google Place details into applications
  • Geocoding capabilities to translate addresses into coordinates and vice versa
  • Geolocation services to provide approximate device location using Wi-Fi nodes and cell towers
  • Address validation metrics to help validate addresses

Hiring a Google Maps developer can benefit you if you want to implement Google Maps software on your website or mobile application. Some examples of Google Maps development include Zombie Outbreak Simulator, a game where your avatar is placed within a zombie-infested map of your location, and Weather Hopper, an app that allows users to confirm weather conditions of nearby and faraway places.

What Does a Google Map Developer Do?

Google Map developers are primarily responsible for creating and updating real-world maps and implementing maps on existing products and services. Other responsibilities may include:

  • Implementing and displaying large numbers of markers, or marker clustering, through the MarkerClustererPlus library
  • Using info windows to place informational text and images in pop-up windows above specific maps
  • Integrating Maps JavaScript API into web applications through TypeScript
  • Creating and managing custom map styles using the Google Cloud Console
  • Implementing geocoding and reverse geocoding
  • Adding place autocomplete

Google Map Developer Salary

Salaries can vary across industries, locations, and experience. However, Glassdoor figures suggest that mid-level Google Maps developers with four to six years of experience in the U.S. make an annual salary of $140,529.

While Google Map 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 helps connect you with these highly qualified, pre-vetted Latin American developers.

How to Write a Job Description for Google Maps Developers

The first step in the hiring process is crafting a compelling job description to post across job boards. The job description should be thorough and include both basic and informative information. Including an in-depth explanation of what the job entails will ensure that candidates understand what they'll be responsible for if hired and give them a snapshot of what working for your company will be like.

Besides the basic information of job title and working hours, be sure to include the following criteria:

  • Required qualifications: Developers should hold a bachelor's degree or higher in computer science or a related field. Relevant industry experience may also qualify them.
  • Desired skills: Google and other platforms are built on JavaScript, so candidates should have a strong background in using it. You can also include soft skills like collaboration, critical thinking, and communication.
  • Job responsibilities: List all duties that you intend to have your new hire responsible for. Listing required tasks and responsibilities can also help weed out those who don’t have the skills and knowledge necessary.
  • Benefits: Many companies will offer their full-time employees health and life insurance. However, consider including other attractive benefits like flexible working hours, paid parental leave, or other perks to appeal to more applicants.

You'll also need to tailor your description toward the level of seniority your project needs. Junior-level developers are great for tasks that require additional help but may not require as many skills. Alternatively, senior-level developers are better tasked to handle complicated projects and lead teams.

Interview Questions for Google Maps Developers

Interviews can help assess a candidate’s knowledge, skills, and work ethic. Though they can be tedious and time-consuming, having questions prepared in advance can help. Below are some example questions.

What are the main features of Google Maps?

This question helps determine a candidate's familiarity with Google Maps. Candidates should be able to give a brief overview of what Google Maps is and its most common features, including the ability to search nearby addresses, provide users with route directions, measure distances and ETA, display street views, and download traffic information.

Does Google Maps have APIs?

Since developers will be working with APIs and SDKs within the Google Maps platform, this question helps weed out the inexperienced from experienced developers. Candidates should be able to explain what Google Maps APIs are, how they work, and when to use them.

How do you implement and load Google Maps on web pages?

This question is something that all Google Maps developers should know how to answer, explaining in detail how Google Maps are loaded on websites. Candidates should also be able to implement Google Maps on a test webpage to demonstrate their abilities.
