It is important that you can tell great programmers and mediocre ones apart. Here are qualities you need to look for a software developer for your team:
- Positive attitude – They should be willing to go the distance in order to complete a software. When you need to bring a product to market or need to ship a certain feature out by the deadline, the great programmer will step up and get the product released whenever possible.
- Good time and task management – They should be able to estimate the time needed to complete a task right by the deadline. Also, they need to deliver as per the deadline agreed on.
- Quick learning ability – They should be self-learners. They have the ability to learn new technologies on their own and aren't intimidated by new technologies. They are dedicated to always stay updated with the latest technology in their field.
