How to hire a Golang developer? Skills to look for, interview questions, and more

Golang is one of the fastest-rising technologies that companies use for developing modern software solutions and scalable servers. It adds features like the safety of memory, garbage collection, structure-based typing, and CSP-style concurrency.

As there is no dearth of availability in a variety of platforms and accessibility of a robust well-documented library, developers can focus on Golang development principles. But, Golang developers must also master concepts like functions, pointers, structs, and interfaces to be considered a reliable choice for hire.

However, hiring expert Golang developers is difficult. Countless companies compete to hire from the limited talent pool, making it costly and time-consuming to hire remote Golang developers. But, Turing simplifies this process with our AI-powered deep-vetting talent platform, which leverages global reach to source high-quality developers in 4 days.

Our AI-powered talent cloud selects developers after testing their communication skills and technical expertise in core Golang fundamentals, Go frameworks, RESTful API development, Go library, and other key areas.

Skills to look for in a Golang developer?

Recruiting professionals requires a lot of industry or skill-specific knowledge. If you do not have any prior experience in hiring for technical profiles, especially Golang developers, this blog should help you out. Shortlist experienced applicants and try professionals who check off all or most of these listed points.

1. Well-versed with Golang core concepts

A reliable and experienced Golang developer must have complete clarity of the language's fundamentals. They must be able to understand concepts like types, variables, functions, and control structures. This will ensure that the developer has a thorough understanding of the Go programming language and can help in working with different paradigms and constructs.

2. Solid understanding of the Go library

The Go standard library offers a rich set of packages for multiple purposes. Expert Golang developers are familiar with the standard library packages and their implementing to streamline common programming tasks, like networking, encoding/decoding, file handling, and concurrency.

3. Well-versed with Goroutine

Golang comes with a special feature called Goroutines. This is a set of functions that can be deployed independently or even simultaneously to work in tandem with other functions mentioned in the codes. Almost all Go programs contain at least one Goroutine which is tagged as the main Goroutine. These processes keep working in the background and if the primary Goroutine execution is terminated all connected Goroutines will also follow the same path. When vetting candidates to hire Golang developers, make sure they have enough expertise in Goroutines to work comfortably on your software projects.

4. Knowledge of Go channel patterns

Golang channels can be of great help when it comes to resolving issues with communication within the process. Patterns like fan-in, fan-out, pipelines, rate limiters, and load balancers are some of the most often deployed. Professionals with a significant number of years of experience and expertise in Golang should be able to explain Go channel patterns without much difficulty. So, when shortlisting Golang developers, check resumes referring to expertise with the same.

5. Strong knowledge of Go frameworks

With Go frameworks, the Golang developers can jump right into writing APIs and web services. Frameworks help in drastically minimizing the time required to develop large-scale production-level applications by assisting with coding and troubleshooting for bugs. It provides additional features which can be used by the entire team to add similar functionalities to the product removing the need for writing full-fledged codes. Here are some of the more popular Golang frameworks used by developers: fasthttp, kit, echo, beego, gin, and Revel.

6. Proficiency in RESTful API development

RESTful APIs are a common requirement for most modern applications, including Golang. Hence, skilled Golang developers must know how to use Go to design and implement RESTful APIs. They must be familiar with concepts like status codes, request and response handling, error handling, input validation, and API documentation.

7. Knowledge of Go templating

Go templates offer a wide range of options for customizing outputs. There are two operating packages when it comes to Go templates; a text/template and another html/template both use the same interface while their functions differ. If you wish to test the developer about his/her knowledge related to Go templates, you can ask questions related to the functions and benefits of using the two.

Top interview questions to hire Golang developers

Whether you're an IT recruiter or a project manager, you know that finding top developers is critical to the success of your project. Here are some sample interview questions to use when looking for a new Golang developer to work on your online applications.

Gopath environment variables are used to define the location of Go workspaces. Try to see if the applicant is able to answer such simple questions without much thinking.

In Golang, interfaces are developed to define object behaviors. These are created using the command 'type' followed by a name and keyword interface. Showcasing in-depth knowledge of Go interfaces should give a fair idea about one's expertise.

These are function values that can reference values from outside its body. It can even access and assign values to referenced variables. Try to vet developers by asking him/her to show or state examples related to the matter.

This can be a trick question that you can use. Golang offers only one loop construct, i.e. the 'for' loop with 3 different components.

No, not really as Golang does not offer inheritance functionalities as it does not work with classes. Check if the developer answering the question can mention the workaround of mimicking inheritance behavior using composition for using existing struct objects for defining starting behavior of new objects.
