5 Ways to Find Best Software Developer in UK

Mar 21st 2015 at 2:58 AM

If you are looking for a UK-based software development company then you’re in luck, because you have many options. There are plenty of ways to find talent, and here we share 5 of the most effective. These tips should be helpful if you have a new project and need to find a British developer to execute it from the ground up, or if you are looking to subcontract some of the work.

1. Attend Local Meetups

Almost every city in the UK has some sort of meetup for certain focuses of development.

These groups welcome clients who want to pitch their ideas.

2. Attend Developer Conferences

If you have the time and the budget, then developer conferences are worth going to. They occur throughout the year and are attended by professional developers eager to work on new projects.

3. Try Twitter and

These two social networks seem to be the preference of developers. Search them for keywords that might be involved in your project (such as rails, iOS developer, etc.) and you might find the people to work with. The best developers are popular and will have a lot of followers.

4. Simply Google ‘bespoke software developer in the UK’

This should show you the websites of some of the leading British software development firms. Hit the contact button and arrange a meeting.

5. Ask Others

Do you know other people or companies who recently used a bespoke software developer? They may be able to refer you to a good contact.

Before You Go Looking…

Keep in mind that not all software companies will (or can) take on projects of any size. Bigger bespoke developers are typically only interested in larger, multi-enterprise, multi-year projects. Some smaller firms specialize in just one focus (such as enterprise systems integration or mobile media applications).

Are you on a strict deadline? For instance, is there an upcoming trade show and are you looking to show off the new software there? How much time do you have to wait for the bespoke software to get done? If your project is massive and long-running, are you comfortable waiting many months—even years? A good developer will be able to give you a realistic calendar showing how quickly the project can be developed, when it can be tested, and when it can be delivered. The bigger the project, the longer it takes to finish. Be sure to determine your goals, budget, and time frame before you go out looking for a developer.
