    There are hundreds of programming languages to choose from for your software project. But some of them are more loved by tech specialists than others, and therefore used more frequently. These preferences may change from year to year. Now, according to the PYPL rating, Python tops the list of the most popular programming languages, followed by Java and Javascript. That’s why hiring Python developers may be quite challenging for business owners all over the world.

    top programming languages

    But what is so great about Python? Actually, it can bring a lot of benefits to your project.

    First, it’s a widely-used and high-level back-end programming language, that is valued both by startups, as it allows them to build apps fast, and large companies, as it helps them make their workflows much more data-driven.

    Python is flexible, readable, and easy to use, therefore it’s used in many fields, particularly in data science. It’s used for developing complex software solutions capable of processing large volumes of data and information.

    You may think that since Python is the most popular programming language, there should be dozens of Python developers to choose from. Well, Python programmers are in high demand, and hiring skilled and qualified engineers isn’t that easy. Check out our guide below that will help you hire the best developers for your project.

    What is Python?

    Python is an all-purpose language designed by a Dutch programmer, Guido van Rossum, that was released in 1991. It is used for a variety of software development areas, including back-end development, web app development, writing system scripts, data science, Blockchain and machine learning projects. Thanks to its ability to run on nearly every type of system architecture, Python has become a universal programming language.

    You can access thousands of Python packages through software repositories, particularly through the biggest one, called PyPI or the Cheese shop. There are many Python frameworks, (like Django), or libraries, (like Mathplotlib), that allow you to implement projects of different complexity and for various fields.

    Quote about developers

     

    Let’s find out more about what people use Python for.

     

    What is Python used for?

    1. Python for web development and web apps creation

    When it comes to web development, Python is used by companies from different industries and from all over the world. Particularly, this programming language is appreciated by such prominent brands as Reddit, NASA, Google, Facebook, Disqus, Instagram, Spotify, Quora, Reddit, Netflix, and PBS.

    Python is second-to-none in terms of back-end development as it has lots of pre-built libraries and web frameworks, including Django, Pyramid, and Flask. Using libraries shortens the amount of time spent on projects and allows for deploying software solutions much faster.

     

    2. Python for Data Science and scientific computing

    Python has become a top programming language for scientific research, as well as computing. There are many Python scientific libraries, including:

    • PsychoPy for neuroscience
    • Biopython is used for biology and bioinformatics
    • Astropy for astronomy
    • A Graph-tool for statistical analysis

    Python has no rivals when it comes to parsing data. So if your software solution is meant to deal with large volumes of information, hiring Python developers is right up your alley.

     

    3. Python for Machine Learning

    Machine Learning is all about computing and mathematical algorithms allowing us to make data-driven decisions. Many programming languages are used for creating ML-based applications, but some of them are more well-suited for these purposes.

    Hire python developers applications Machine Learning

    Python is often named as the best language for ML, due to its simplicity and consistency, great selection of libraries and frameworks, as well as its good support of data science and data models.

     

    4. Python for tech startups projects

    Why should you hire Python developers for your software project?

    A vast majority of companies prefer Python due to its versatile features and fewer programming codes. Let’s find out what benefits help Python to remain such as a popular programming language.
    01

    Easy to write and read

    One of the best things about Python is its simplicity. Python reads quite like English, which makes it easier to read the code, as well as learn this language, as compared to other programming languages such as Java or C/ C++. As tech specialists say, a single line of Python code can do more than a single line of code in many other languages, which obviously helps your development team to complete the project more quickly.
    02

    High productivity

    The language has extensive support libraries and clean, object-oriented design. The following factors increase programmers’ productivity and allow them to assemble code much faster when compared to such languages as Java, C, C++, C#, VB, and Perl. Python has strong process integration features, unit testing frameworks, and enhanced control capabilities that also facilitate the increase of speed and productivity.
    03

    Interpreted language

    Python is an interpreted language, which makes the implementation of Python projects much easier than with compiled languages. It executes the code line by line, and if there is an error, it will stop further execution and report the error. Even if there are multiple errors, Python shows only one error. The following makes debugging much easier.
    04

    Type and execute

    Python finds out the type of a variable when we run the code. Then it automatically assigns the data type while executing. This means that software engineers don’t need to declare variables, as well as their data types.
    05

    Open-source programming language

    Python is free to use and distribute. It was developed under an OSI-approved open source license. You can download the source code, change it, and distribute your customized version of Python.
    06

    A wide range of libraries

    Python's massive collection of libraries is definitely one of the reasons why this programming language is so popular. There are over 137,000 Python libraries available.TensorFlow, Scikit-Learn, Numpy, Keras, PyTorch to name a few. Even its Standard Library contains a wide range of modules that helps to simplify the programmer's everyday work immensely. Libraries make all development processes much easier. They can save lots of time and effort that can be used on more important development aspects.
    07

    Portability

    Python is a portable programming language. This means that you don’t need to fully change the code to run the program on different operating systems, such as Linux, MAC, or Windows. Python developers write once and run the code on various Unix or Unix-like OS. Of course it doesn’t include system-dependent features.

    The Top five Python frameworks

    Libraries and frameworks were designed to make the process of software development easier for Python programmers. Although there are dozens of frameworks available on the market, check out the list below to find the ones that are most widespread:
    01

    Django

    When it comes to Python frameworks, Django is probably the most widely spoken one. This framework is often used for building complex web apps as it is known for its speed and informative documentation. Django comes fully loaded to boost the software development process with its own ORM for working with databases, a standard approach for authorization and authentication, an automatically generated admin interface, etc. It works well both for small and large software projects. Django can be easily scaled and is a good fit for high-load apps creation. For example, Mozilla and Instagram utilize the Django framework. Nevertheless, Django is focused on web app development, it can also be used for developing API-only backend applications (although it would be more convenient to do it with the Django Rest Framework).
    02

    Flask

    Flask is another popular Python framework used for the development of web apps and microservices. Flask was designed following the Ruby framework Sinatra. This framework provides a core set of functionality, including routing, templating, request handling, WSGI compliance, etc. Hence, Flask allows for building web apps easily. Thanks to its extensions, developers can integrate any storage choice, database interaction, security, authentication, and much more in just a few clicks. Flask is used for user-facing web apps, APIs, and microservices. Unlike Django, Flask is a better choice for open-ended and small software projects.
    03

    Pyramid

    Pyramid can be traced back to the Pylons project. The following framework has been actively used by Python developers as long as Django has. When compared with Django, Pyramid is less categorical. The Pyramid framework is highly flexible, and provides routing, renderers, and command-line tools required to bootstrap a software project. It offers you the ability to choose a custom database layer and template system via a wide range of plugins. Unlike Django, Pyramid allows for starting smaller and growing the complexity of your codebase when needed. The framework can be used for software projects of any size and complexity.
    04

    Masonite

    Masonite is quite a new framework, released in 2017. It shares a similar design philosophy with Django. Masonite was designed to eliminate some pain points of web app development. It allows for routing middleware, enhanced code scaffolding, and support email sending, S3 upload, and queuing. Developers from all over the world actively support Masonite. There is a separate Slack channel where Python developers can find support and useful tips from other experts. Masonite is a great choice when it comes to web apps that include features such as email management, file upload, and payment processing.
    05

    Tornado

    Tornado is a web framework and asynchronous networking library originally created by FriendFeed in 2009. The Tornado framework is the right choice for creating services that open many network connections. This small framework is perfect for developing applications, such as a bot or a web scraper, that request data from other sites and act on the returned information. Though Tornado is a moderately old framework, it’s being actively improved and updated.

    What is a Python developer?

    Obviously, a Python developer is a programmer who has knowledge of the Python programming language and uses it to build software products. They typically work with backend components, on the server-side. A Python developer works with data collection and analytics to support the business with valuable data-driven insights. Also, Python software engineers deal with scripting, data analysis, web scraping, and automation.

    Thanks to the multifunctionality of Python, Python developers are always in high demand. According to Glassdoor, there are more than 17k open job offers for Python developers.

     

    Junior, middle, or senior Python developer

    Before hiring Python developers, you have to understand what type of developer you need. Junior, middle, and senior developers differ by skills and experience with Python. It doesn’t mean that junior developers don’t know anything and can’t write a single line of code. They just have little or not enough experience to work on or lead challenging projects.

    At the same time, Senior Python developers don’t have to be experts in everything, but it’s safe to say that Senior developers are way more experienced than Middle Python developers and can handle most of the complicated tasks. Check out the table below to spot the differences between Junior, Middle, and Senior developers.

    Junior Middle Senior
    0-3 years 3+ years of experience with Python 4+ years of experience with Python

    Top hard skills for Python developers


    Python is a cross-discipline programming language used in various business and scientific domains, including Data Science, Web App Development, and Machine Learning, just to name a few. This section will highlight which tech or hard skills are essential for Python developers.

     

    Core Python

    Core concepts lays a foundation for further Python skills development, such as using frameworks and libraries. Python developers should first be proficient in various core concepts of this programming language, including variables and data types, data structure, exception handling, file handling, object-oriented programming, etc.

     

    Python frameworks

    Frameworks make the life of Python coders much easier. They save time and therefore help to speed up the development process. When it comes to protocols, threads, or sockets, there is no need to worry about them as they are conveniently built into the frameworks. There are several basic frameworks that python developers often work with, including Django, Flask, Web2Py, Bottle, and more.

    The following frameworks can simplify the process of software development once Python developers get the hang of them. Frameworks are used for the quick and efficient development of MVPs and prototypes since they eliminate the need to retype the code. Python frameworks can be used for multiple domains

     

    Python libraries

    A vast collection of libraries is one of the biggest advantages of Python. This programming language features over 296k projects, according to the Python Package Index.

    Python developers can take advantage of existing code lines and simplify the development process significantly. Developers should be able to find, study, and implement libraries provided by the Python ecosystem.

     

    Basic knowledge of frontend technologies

    Python developers don’t work only with backend technologies. Sometimes they also work with frontend technologies and have to ensure the full match between the client-side (frontend) and the server-side (backend) of the product. Experience with frontend technologies allows Python software engineers to see the big picture of how the app works.

    In other words, a basic knowledge of frontend technologies, such as CSS, HTML, or JavaScript will definitely come in handy for both in-house or freelance Python programmers. On the one hand, not all projects need Python developers to work with the frontend, and on the other hand, it’s more than useful in building a vast majority of software products.

     

    Understanding of AI, ML, and DL concepts

    There is much hype around AI and Machine Learning over the past few years. Both AI and ML projects are in high demand today, so it would be great for Python developers to have a clear understanding of their main concepts and algorithms. Python engineers may have some knowledge of Machine Learning, which is used for building recommendation systems, natural language processing, image recognition, image restoration, automatic speech recognition based on Machine Learning, etc.

    If the software project deals with large volumes of data, it’s vital for Python software developers to be proficient in Data Science as well.

     

    Experience with ORM libraries

    Object-Relational Mappers or ORMs are a particular class of libraries used for the transfer of data from a database to Python objects. Developers can leverage these libraries to change the data stored in the database by just using Python code instead of a SQL.

    ORM libraries provide significant benefits while developing software products with Python. They help abstract away some complexities of the process and save a significant chunk of the development time.

     

    Version control

    Regardless of the programming language, any software product undergoes a myriad of changes and versions during its development phases. Version controlling helps software engineers keep track of the changes. It becomes highly important when there is a large development team working on the software product.

    Python developers need to know how to work with a version control tool. Git, Mercurial, and Apache Subversion are some of the examples of version control tools that are used by thousands of developers worldwide.

     

    Solid understanding of multi-process architecture

    While building web apps, Python developers need to pick a development architecture or framework to detach the internal work of the app from the users. Nowadays, Python developers choose between the Model View Controller or the Model View Template architecture.

    Soft skills vital for Python developers

    Being excellent at writing code in Python is not enough for being an excellent Python developer. Soft skills can be a decisive factor when hiring Python programmers. Soft skills are vital for software engineers as they need to communicate with other team members, including PMs, QAs, designers, and sometimes even with clients.

    Here are some of the examples of characteristics that make a programmer a fit for your team:

    • Communication skills
    • Empathy
    • Patience
    • Flexibility and open-mindedness
    • Analytical thinking
    • Confidence
    • Time management skills
    • Teamwork and collaboration

    Besides being proficient in Python, the best Python programmers should be able to identify the issues and look for the right solutions on their own.

    How much does it cost to hire Python developers?

    The cost of hiring a developer depends on a wide variety of factors, including the complexity of the project, location, seniority level (junior, middle, or senior) of programmers, their expertise, and often, even their knowledge of the English language.

    When comparing Python freelance rates and Python developer salaries, it’s too difficult to say which option is more cost-effective. According to Clutch.com, the Python programmer hourly rate ranges between $25-140, depending on the country and their English level.

    At DOIT Software you can hire experienced Python developers for $40-50 per hour depending on your project complexity. Just contact us to find Python programmers available for hiring.

    You might think that a freelance Python developer salary is much lower, and that’s why it’s better to find freelancers who are programming Python. You’d be surprised that Python freelance rates are not that affordable. They range between $61-80. This means that hiring freelancers is more expensive than hiring with DOIT Software.

    How to find and hire Python developers?

    The process of hiring Python developers can be a real challenge. The higher the demand is, the more complicated the process gets for an HR person who hires Python programmers. Here are some useful tips to consider while searching for Python programmers for hire.

     

    Create an in-depth job ad

    It’s vital to mention all the technologies and specific skills necessary to bring your software idea to life. Before drafting a job ad, consider the following points:

    • Your business goal
    • Milestones for the development team
    • Target market
    • Tech requirements
    • Scaling strategies
    • Budget for software development and maintenance

     

    Start an active search

    Browse various platforms, ask your friends, and take advantage of social networks as well. Of course, a tweet doesn’t sound like a real hiring strategy, but your friends may know a few skilled and talented Python programmers available for hire.

     

    Choose candidates with relevant experience

    A candidates’ experience is the first thing you need to pay attention to when hiring Python developers. Conduct in-depth research of the tools and languages that Python programmers should work with.

    If you’re going to build a niche-specific product, it’s better to hire Python developers who have worked in this area before, thus, have relevant experience and knowledge. For example, if your goal is to build a factoring solution, your development team is better to have some successfully implemented projects in the fintech industry.

     

    Conduct an interview

    An interview is an essential part of the hiring process. Even if there is no opportunity to meet with a candidate in person, you can always have a Skype or Zoom-meeting. Inviting a technical specialist to the interview is always a great idea, especially when you’re not a developer yourself. Here are some points to discuss when hiring Python developers.

    • Their experience with languages and frameworks as well as what tech stack they’ve already worked with.
    • Their portfolio and projects they’ve developed.
    • Their challenges and obstacles related to development, and how they have solved them in the previous projects.

     

    Assign a test task

    A technical interview isn’t enough to validate your Python developer. Creating a detailed task is the best way to check the skills and knowledge when hiring Python developers. Test tasks help to reveal the developers’ skills and their ability to deal with complex projects. No one wants to hire unqualified Python developers and waste time and money.

     

    Pay attention to soft skills

    Superb tech skills are a decisive factor when it comes to validating Python software engineers, but soft skills are also important. While conducting an interview, pay attention to whether a candidate listens to you attentively and how he or she answers your questions. If a programmer asks lots of relevant questions – it is a great sign as it means that he or she is interested in your company and your project.

    Don’t forget to ask your candidate about their experience and role in the development process. This will help you figure out whether the candidate is a team player or prefers to work autonomously. Motivation is also a great thing to ask about while hiring Python developers. When you know what motivates your candidates, you can adjust your retention policies to match their needs, for example, either remuneration, new challenging projects, or career growth.

    Hiring Python developers is a multistage process and takes lots of time and effort. By staff augmenting Python programmers with DOIT Software, you don’t need to spend your resources on the exhausting search. Contact us to find out how you can hire Python developers fast and stress-free!

    Mistakes to avoid while hiring Python developers

    When it comes to searching and hiring software engineers, it’s better to know all the obstacles beforehand. Hiring unqualified Python developers may cost you a pretty penny and take lots of your precious time. Here are some mistakes a vast majority of business owners make when searching for a Python programmer for hire.

     

    Do not practice active recruiting

    There are two types of recruiting to distinguish between – active and passive. Passive recruiting is when an HR places a job application on various platforms and waits for the candidates to apply. Of course in some cases it works. When you limit yourself to passive recruiting, you can miss out on many talented candidates.

    Nowadays, active recruiting works best when hiring Python developers. It means actively monitoring and hiring developers on various platforms and tracking the projects they’re working on. The more time and resources you spend on your search, the better candidates you’ll find for your software project.

     

    Don’t use test tasks to validate the skills and knowledge of Python programmers

    It’s better to provide your candidates with a test task to validate their experience and skills. When hiring Python developers, it’s necessary to verify both technical and practical knowledge. The test task should show whether your candidates are skilled enough to become a part of your team or whether you should keep searching.

     

    Ignore soft skills

    Employers are likely to pay more attention to what software engineers know rather than how they interact with other people. In reality though, soft skills are also important since miscommunication and the inability to work on a team can burden or even stop the development process.
