Python is one of the most popular computer programming languages these days. Open-source, versatile, powerful, and easy to learn, Python can be used for a variety of tasks. This includes AI and machine learning, data visualization, game development, finance, web development, and more.

Due to how flexible and accessible Python is, many have taken it upon themselves to learn this programming language. As such, there are many Python developers looking for jobs on the web. This makes hiring developers for Python projects quite difficult — with so many Python developers on the market, it can be hard to discern which Python developers are the best for your project.

Read on to learn about the crucial steps you should take for finding the best Python software developers. By the end of this article, you’ll also learn how to hire Python developers through Revelo, Latin America’s largest tech talent platform.

What is Python Used For?

Python is suited for a lot of tasks. Because it’s a general-purpose language, it can be used to create and build different programs and solutions. Typically, though, Python is used for web development and machine learning tasks.

Web development

Python is often used to develop the back end of a website — the part of the website that users don’t see. Web developers usually use it in conjunction with a front-end language, like Javascript, to construct the website.

Python can be utilized to do the following tasks for the website:

  • Process data
  • Route URLs
  • Send data to and from servers
  • Ensure and boost security
  • Create games

Machine learning, AI, and deep learning

Python is a premier choice for data analysts and coders working in this area because it offers readable and concise code. Unlike many other languages, Python can be readily understood by humans, which results in less frustration, better communication, and higher productivity.

Since Python also comes with extensive libraries full of pre-written code that developers can use for machine learning, AI, and deep learning projects, it’s also often used for these tasks. In these libraries, one finds:

  • PyTorch for machine learning, computer vision, and natural language processing
  • Keras, Scikit-learn, and TensorFlow for machine learning
  • NumPy for high-performance data analysis and scientific computing

Advantages of Using Python

Easy to learn

Python is a straightforward programming language. Unlike a lot of other languages, it’s understandable by humans. Since it uses simple syntax that’s similar to English, you don’t need to spend a lot of time understanding or fixing its syntax before running it.

Speed and productivity

It’s also highly productive. Compared to C/C++ and Java, you require fewer lines to perform the same tasks. In other words, you don’t have to write as much code if you’re coding in Python. This will give you more time and energy to get more things done.

Standard library

Python has an extensive standard library that gives you access to powerful modules straight out of the box. These include:

  • File and directory access, including built-in modules written in C that give you access to file I/O and other system functionalities that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to access
  • Modules in Python that provide standard solutions for problems that you may come across while programming
  • Data types, such as calendar-related functions, IANA time zone support, heap queue algorithm, data pretty printer, and support for enumerations
  • Numeric and mathematical modules, such as decimal arithmetic, rational numbers, statistics functions, and pseudo-random numbers
  • Structured markup processing tools, such as support for SAX2 parsers, SAX utilities, fast XML parsing with Expat, simple HTML and XHTML parser, and HyperText Markup Language support
  • Debugging and profiling, such as Dump the Python traceback and the Python Debugger
  • Unix specific services, such as the most common POSIX system calls, the shadow password database, and terminal control functions

Third-party modules

If Python’s standard library doesn’t have what you need for your project, you can install its huge pool of third-party modules. These modules form an ecosystem of their own and can be imported just like the standard library modules after they’ve been installed.

Here are some popular third-party libraries for Python:

  • Numpy: for scientific computing
  • Pandas: for data analysis and manipulation
  • Jinjia2: a web template engine
  • Cryptography: cryptographic primitives and recipes for developers
  • Pylint: source-code, bug, and quality checker
  • Pymongo: tools for working with MongoDB (a database program) through Python

Open-source & community

Python is completely free to use and distribute, which means anyone can download its code, modify it, and distribute the modified version through the internet. As such, it has a large, friendly community where people build upon each other’s work in a collaborative manner. There are also many user-created video and text tutorials, courses, and modules that you can learn from.

Python Tools and Frameworks

Python also has many tools and frameworks that can help developers execute apps and other tasks effectively and efficiently.

Here are some of the best that developers and companies should use to enhance business agility.

Django

Django is an open-source and free Python framework that enables developers to:

  • Write complex Code
  • Develop website apps
  • Develop APIs

Secure and lightning-fast, Django will empower your developers to create high-quality apps as quickly as possible. Like Python itself, Django comes with a vast assortment of libraries that come with pre-written code. This will help developers reuse and modify components, meaning they’ll spend less time writing repetitive code.

Django also has the following stand-out features:

  • Takes care of numerous web development tasks for you, such as RSS feeds, user authentication, and more
  • Possesses a built-in ORM system that enables developers to perform common debugging tasks and access any database
  • Boasts a powerful and easy-to-understand URL system
  • Helps developers define patterns for the URLs in apps
  • Has an automatic admin interface that enables the functionality of adding, editing, and deleting things

Pyramid

Minimalistic and intuitive, Pyramid makes it easy for developers to write web applications. It works in all versions of Python, and the guidance it offers makes it a great fit for experienced Python developers. As a finishing-focused framework, it encourages developers to start “small” but scale up as the application grows.

This helps developers to start quickly and finish “big” on time. It also helps developers to keep their applications finished, since Pyramid is future-proof and has a deep commitment to bug fixing and API stability.

You may want to get Django instead of Pyramid, however, if your developers are looking for a framework that distinguishes an app from a project and doesn’t assume that every project is a single app. Unlike Django, Pyramid expects a project to be a single application with different models or views.

Pyramid has the following competitive features:

  • Comprehensive data documentation, support, and testing
  • Function decorators
  • Asset specifications
  • Renderers
  • Events and subscribers
  • Predicates

Flask

Flask is one of the most minimalistic frameworks for Python out there. This means that even developers with limited experience can start building applications using Flask.

Light and flexible, Flask also comes with:

  • Great documentation and easy-to-use API
  • HTTP request and RESTful handling
  • Fast debugger and built-in development server
  • Flexible and easy configurations
  • Two main dependencies, Jinja2 and Werkzeug, which give you templates and WSGI support, respectively

Unlike more complex tools like Django, however, Flask has weak admin features. It’s also less equipped to deal with heavy loads. Developers also have to work with different databases by using out-of-platform ORM systems such as the SQL toolkit, which can be time-consuming.

Companies Who Use Python

Python isn’t only popular amongst startups and small companies — it’s also used by big names like Intel, Facebook, Spotify, Pixar, Instagram, Netflix, and JP Morgan Chase. It’s also one of the four main programming languages used at Google. YouTube itself is mostly coded in Python.

Here’s what some of these companies have said about Python:

Google

Google has had a long history with Python. When Google was first being developed years ago, its founders primarily used Python to create the engine, only using C++ when low latency was desired and memory control was imperative.

Additionally, code in Perl or Bash was often recorded into Python due to how easy it is to understand.

Facebook

Facebook is another household name that’s a big user of Python. According to Facebook Engineering, as of May 2016, 21% of Facebook’s code is in Python, with C/C++ and Java making up the rest.

Instagram

In June 2016, the Instagram team posted that what they were deploying “features the world’s largest deployment of the Django web framework, which is written entirely in Python.” This is likely to be true today, since Instagram has grown exponentially since 2016.

Netflix

Netflix uses Python to power its data analysis on the server side. It’s a popular choice at Netflix because the company allows its developers and engineers to program in whatever language they want.

When surveyed, they said they chose Python for its community, its standard library, and the deep pool of third-party modules that give them the ability to do almost anything.

Where To Source and Hire Python Developers

If you’re wondering where to find Python developers, you’re right where you need to be. There are many places and websites to source and hire Python developers. These include:

Online communities

Online communities and forums like Reddit are an ideal place to start looking for talent. Briefly, here’s how to do this:

  • Make an account on the site.
  • Browse through different threads and note down the best responses to each question.
  • Click on the name of the users who struck you the most and read through their browsing history to see if they’re a good fit.
  • Send them a private message to ask them if they’re interested in your position.

Hackathons

Hackathons are competitive events where developers and other experts craft solutions for a specific problem within a set period of time. To solve the problem, they will have created a working prototype for a website, robot, or app by the end of the hackathon.

Running hackathons will enable you to locate the best talent for the specific positions you want to fill. It’s like creating and administering your own entrance exam for your job. Hackathons are also a good way to get to know more people in the industry in case you need more people for your projects. For example, if you think you will need to hire a team of Django developers next year, you can run a Hackathon to build this pool of talent. Get their contact information and stay in touch with these people so you can hire them for future positions that pop up.

Conferences

Conferences are basically online communities, only in person. They unite people who are passionate about a specific Python topic, such as Django, Pandas, or some other third-party module.

By hosting a conference or even being a guest speaker, you and your employees will be able to make an impression on many enthusiasts looking for their next job. Avoid sending human resources people to conferences—you need to send people who are actually interested in the specific topic to attract the talent you want.

Remote job boards

Post your job description to remote job boards like weworkremotely.com, Flexijobs, and Remote.co. These are communities dedicated to helping freelancers and remote workers find jobs, so they’re a better starting point than more generalized job boards like Indeed, LinkedIn, or ZipRecruiter.

GitHub

GitHub is one of the most well-known code hosts. Most developers should have a GitHub profile that lets them showcase their coding portfolio and experience.

Follow these steps to locate the talent you need:

  • Create an account on GitHub.
  • Once you have an account and profile, search using location, language, and followers.
  • GitHub’s “show results” default is for repositories, so use the left-hand side menu to change this to users. You now have a pool of developers you can message.

Before deciding to shoot someone a message, check to make sure that the developer you’re considering is open to recruiters. If not, move on to someone who is open.

Keep the following in mind before you contact potential hires:

  • Look through the developer’s profile to see if their work matches what you’re looking for.
  • Check their profiles on Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social media to see other aspects of their personality and online presence. Ask yourself, “Does this person fit the role I’m looking to fill?”
  • Don’t be discouraged if the profile doesn’t look like it’s updated a lot. Some developers just don’t want to share their code publicly.

StackOverflow

StackOverflow is a question-and-answer site for programmers and developers. Like GitHub, this site can help you locate future hires.

Unlike Github, however, StackOverflow isn’t really a portfolio site. This means you have to read through each potential hire’s answers, reputation scores, and user badges to determine if they’re the right fit.
