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

Hiring skilled talent in Java requires testing and reviewing candidates for their technical skills and proficiency in the programming language. That means a fair amount of software development experience is expected. However, if you're coming from a non-technical background and looking to hire a Java developer, we have an excellent resource for you. Here, we will help you understand what it takes to hire top Java programmers to build secure and stable Java applications.

Skills to look for in a Java developer

At a senior level, Java developers should have the following technical skills in his/her arsenal:

1. High-level proficiency in Object-Oriented Programming (OOP)

Though Java supports non-primitive data types like int, float, boolean, double, long, etc., it is mostly an object-oriented programming language because it is difficult to write any Java program without class and object. Hence, a high-level proficiency in OOP is a top criterion to hire Java developers. The OOP approach introduces the class and object style of coding, and developers use it to bind the data and the functions together to improve code stability and safety.

2. Good knowledge of wireframes, UI design and design patterns

Java is a popular programming language that is widely used in building secure and reliable web applications for different industries such as hospitality, healthcare, e-commerce, banking, education, etc. This means that when you hire Java developers, they should be capable of working on several things and need to have a good understanding of different design patterns and frameworks. Design patterns in Java are standard solutions followed to solve regular software designing problems, and a Java developer having the know-how of design can easily coordinate with designers and writers.

3. Good understanding of abstract classes and serialization

A good understanding of classes, data members, methods, and objects is mandatory for any Java developer. Leading to subsets of classes- abstract and serialization, both are essential parts of the Java programming language. On one hand, where abstraction in OOP reduces code complexity by showing only the relevant details of the objects and enhances code readability. On the other hand, serialization in Java deals with the conversion of objects into a byte stream for transporting the java objects from one Java system to the other and recreate them to the original form.

4. Familiarity with Java application containers such as JBoss and Jetty

Normally, thin multi-tier applications are difficult to write because they involve many lines of intricate codes. The component-based and platform-independent Java EE architecture makes Java EE applications easy to write because business logic is organized into reusable components. So if the developer you are hiring has a familiarity with containers, the overall time and effort the developer has to put into your project will reduce drastically. These application containers are designed to provide many functionalities such as providing user authentication, logging, or establishing a connection with the database.

5. Stronghold on Java web frameworks

Some of the most popular websites such as Google, LinkedIn, eBay, and Amazon are written extensively using Java and its frameworks. Frameworks are nothing but tools with pre-written code, which act as a template or skeleton, and are reused to create an application or website.

So, while hiring a Java developer, make sure to ask which frameworks they have used before. Some of the best frameworks are Grails, Google Web Toolkit, Spring, MVC, and Play.

6. Hand-on experience with JQuery, Ajax, CSS, HTML, JSON, Maven and Gradle

With increased competition on the internet, almost every business demands a dynamic website. By using fast, feature-rich JavaScript libraries like JQuery, Ajax, CSS, HTML, JSON, Maven and Gradle, Java developers can create dynamic web content without even sweating a drop. For a Java developer, having a better grip on web technology is essential, as it helps to understand the technique of establishing communication between multiple computer systems via markup languages. So look for a developer who knows how to operate JavaScript libraries and give more weightage to the person who has hands-on experience with the same.

7. Strong competency in testing tools such as Selenium and TestNG

As a recruiter, you would always want to hire a Java developer with strong competency in testing tools like Selenium and TestNG. Java testing tools allow developers to test their JSP pages and web applications with a separate interface where they don't have to actually launch an application onto a web browser. In addition, these testing tools support multiple activities such as planning, creating a build, test execution, defect logging, and test analysis.

Apart from these core technical skills, an experienced Java developer should be able to set up a database and interact with its APIs. He/she should be competent in writing and testing multiple codes. Lastly, he/she should be able to keep track of new related technologies and learn them to create advanced functionality and features.

The best job descriptions are engaging and inclusive because they prompt candidates who are the most appropriate based on their skills and experiences to apply. Check out how you can write the best Java developer job description to hire high-value professional Java developers.

Top interview questions to hire Java developers

Whether you're an IT recruiter or a project manager, you know that finding talented developers is critical to the success of any project. But direct interviews can help you filter these prospects. So, here are some sample questions, which you can use when looking for a Java developer to work on your latest projects.

This can be your conversation starter, as this is a pretty basic question. But still, by asking this, you can make sure that the candidate is aware of the Java environment and stays up to date with the latest versions. The candidate may answer that Java Development Kit or JDK is a software development kit; Java Runtime Environment or JRE is a software bundle that allows Java programs to run; whereas Java Virtual Machine or JVM is an environment for executing bytecode.

Now running into the coding basics, you can throw this question and ease the candidate. The candidate may answer that Static is a keyword, which when associated with a method, makes it a class-related method. However, Void is a return type, and it does not return any value.

Java uses classes to take all the properties and behaviors of an object in a program and combine them into a single template. You can find out how much the candidate knows about the Java programming language by throwing this question. He or she may answer that Objects have states and behaviours. For example, a cat has states like colour, breed, as well as behaviors like wagging the tail, barking, slouching. On the other hand, a class can be defined as an umbrella term or a template/blueprint that describes the behavior/state that the object of its type support.

This question can be a good leading question to the previous one. A java method is a set of statements to perform a task. Why developers use it is because methods allow us to reuse the code without retyping the code. A method can have the following elements in its signature:

  • Access specifier – public, private, protected etc. (Not mandatory)
  • Access modifier – static, synchronized etc. (Not mandatory)
  • Return type - Void, int, String etc. (Mandatory)
  • Method name – show() (Mandatory)
  • With or without parameters – (int number, String name); (parenthesis are mandatory)

Test the coding nuances with this question. The candidate may answer- there are five different ways to create an object in Java:

  • Java new Operator
  • Java Class.newInstance() method
  • Java newInstance() method of constructor
  • Java Object.clone() method
  • Java Object Serialization and Deserialization
