In this scenario, where shall you find them, how much the personnel will charge you, how come you trust them whether they can perform well or not. Lets find the ultimate solution to overcome these challenges in the hiring process.

Research has shown that hiring web development firm is better than hiring individual contributors for software development overall as the former one ensures team performance, work relationship and quality output.

If you want to do smaller projects that can be performed alone without assistance, you can go for individual contributors. If you want to do mediocre or bigger projects that needs graphic designer, HTML programmers, database programmers and others who can accomplish the project as a team, you can choose a development firm.

The employee you hire today may work for your competitor tomorrow. In that case, there are possibilities that he/she may leek out your confidential information. To avoid this it is always good to pick a development firm instead of solo contributors and implement advanced trade secret protection program.

Most of the web developers today are interested in hourly based payment than flat fee. So clarify with the pricing policies and the payment terms.

Limit employees access to trade secrets, beef up physical security and computer security, restrict photocopying, oversee documents before shared in the community and inform your employees about non-disclosure agreement.

The budget of project depends on who hire and what you develop. If you are an experienced hirer and have management skills, you can hire freelancers in different core and manage the project yourself. In case you are not able to oversee the development process, better hire full-time employees who can work as a group of dedicated experts.
