1. Strong knowledge of Boost & STL

One of the primary requirements for finding a high-value C developer is to look for Boost and STL experts. These work as the functional paradigm of the language. Whenever you're asked to source and hire C developers who can help drive projects, invest time in understanding the level of expertise of the applicants. Try to select someone who is familiar with designing using STL and expand them using Boost libraries.

2. Ability to work with data structures

In C, data structures are used to save and sort data in an organized manner. C uses a variety of different data structures which best suits the immediate requirements. When interviewing applicants, check if he/she is able to mention the different data structures and also explain them in detail. Here's a list of the most commonly used data structures in C:

Sucker programming is pretty flexible and can easily be implemented for general communications exchanging packets of raw data between applications.

5. Ability to identify & remove bottlenecks

When you are looking to hire C developers, always look for professionals with troubleshooting skills. A variety of problems can arise while developing applications on C that require prompt solutions. C developers with a keen understanding of troubleshooting approaches can help tackle tricky situations with confidence.

For which, while conducting interviews spend time to understand the skill set of the developers. Ask about how much he/she has been involved in undertaking such tasks in past projects.

6. Strong interpersonal skills

Regardless of the niche of expertise of a developer, interpersonal skills always take higher priority. Especially if you're looking to hire remote C developers to drive development cycles, communication becomes a defining factor. The ability to communicate and collaborate with confidence can help speed up development activities and produce flawless solutions.

Hence, spend time to vet the developer’s communication skills during the interview. See how confident he/she is while brainstorming about possible solutions.

Create a hiring funnel

Top 10 C developer interview questions

When looking to hire C developers, it is important to evaluate their skill level by asking the right set of questions. Here’s a list of interview questions you can utilize to vet developers appearing for the interview.

C works with a variety of different data types like Int, Float, Double, Char, and Void. To evaluate their level of understanding of data types you can also ask them to explain the purpose of each.

Pointers that are uninitialized in C code are referred to as Wild pointers. They can point to several arbitrary memory locations and can even result in the program crashing.

In C, ++a refers to increments that happen first on a variable and are termed as prefix increments. While a++ is referred to as a postfix increment which happens after the value of a variable is used for certain operations.

A prototype function is the declaration of functions with a certain set of information to the compiler. Declared information can include the likes of:

  • Name of function
  • Return type of function
  • Parameters list of the function

A header file (also called a library file) is used for storing definitions and prototypes of functions being used in C.

Break is used for bringing control out of code blocks in execution. See if the developer is also able to mention situations (loop or switch statement) where the break keywords appear.

Modifiers in C act as a prefix to basic data types. They are used for indicating modifications for storage allocation to a variable.

In C programming language, a developer can take advantage of five different modifiers:

  • Short
  • Long
  • Signed
  • Unsigned
  • Long long

In C programming, Null pointers can be used in three different ways:

  • In case of an error value
  • As a sentinel value
  • For terminating indirection in recursive data structures

In C, loops that run within another loop are referred to as a nested loops. In such situations, the first loop is referred to as the outer loop and the second one as the inner loop.
