Software development is the process of creating an application to do specific tasks on a computer or another device. This includes the research, design, programming, and testing of the software. We're talking programming – the wrangling of code. Sometimes this can mean some front-end web development, or a bit of back-end work with your servers and databases. If you're a complete layperson to this sector, we should probably explain that there's no one unified language out there for software developers to use. There are dozens of coding languages available that your expert might need to be fluent in (though to be fair one can get away with knowing just one or two of the most popular/modern ones).

How to hire a great freelance Software Developer
In today’s world, we’re using software every day for a range of reasons whether it be for business, pleasure or our day-to-day life. If you’re looking to hire a talented IT specialist who is experienced and trained in software development, website development, software design or software engineering you’ll be spoilt for choice, particularly in the freelance world.
The term software covers the multitude of programs that you use every day on your laptop, PC, iPad or any form of electronic device. A software designer is the creative inspiration behind your online banking program and is instrumental in helping your local supermarket release the most recent version of their shopping app. Everywhere we look software and those who create and maintain it is, in some form or another, all around us.
While using software is an everyday occurrence for most, the skills required to develop, design and engineer software are so specific that software experts are highly sought after. To succeed in the software development industry individuals need to be committed and prepared to study hard.
Because of the precise knowledge that a software expert holds corporations charge you top dollar for their services; whether you’re looking for a mobile application developer to create an app that can take your company to the next level or work with an existing program that's already in place - a software expert hired from a software company does not come cheap.
Freelancer.com gives you access to the profiles of thousands of software developers, software designers and software engineers who are all highly skilled and qualified in web software and have a whole range of experience in many different areas and tools of software development and design so you can choose the right person for your job for a fraction of the cost.
If your company needs a full-time software expert and you are looking to recruit for a permanent position rather than a temporary software developer or designer, then Freelancer.com will allow you to 'try before you buy'. Not all freelance software designers are looking for full-time work so hiring a freelancer on a temporary job-by-job basis will allow you to build a relationship first (because let's face it, how much can you really tell from a 20-minute interview?) whilst getting your specific software job completed and deciding if your freelancer is right for your company.
Freelance software development hones in a wide range of skills containing a variety of industry-specific technical knowledge. By engaging a freelancer focused on software development, you’ll enjoy cost savings and enjoy the flexibility and availability of a software freelancer for your next software development job.
Software development isn’t always a 9 to 5 job; freelance software developers can be available when you need them at a rate that suits you. When you need their skills and someone who is not governed by Monday to Friday office hours you can enjoy the quicker support and a fresh and up to date skill set specific to your needs.
Here’s a list of reasons why you should hire a freelance software developer for your next custom software development job:
Broad range of software experience Flexibility to work when you want A fraction of the cost of IT consultant Try out freelancers skills before recruiting a permanent software developer Intricate knowledge of a large range of software programs and technologies Available to do your job immediately No contracts - you pay once the job is complete and are not committed to continuing paying for time not used Affordable
