Expert Remote developers are superb — depending on which talents they assign to you, you can expect anything from solid to phenomenal work along the whole spectrum of software design, engineering, implementation and maintenance skills.
Expert Remote played a huge role in building our dev squad: a part-time UI/UX designer, two front-end developers, a back-end developer, and a part-time QA. We shopped around a bit with different agencies, but settled on Expert Remote due to the high-caliber of talent and affordable rates.
Expert Remote developers helped in developing apps, but also in talking through scope and need and giving ideas – which is very useful for a non-coder like myself.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are you an Agency?
Well, some clients call us a virtual agency or an agency 2.0 :)
1. Typical agencies take 50-70% from a developer salary. We take only 15-30%.
2. Agencies have 10-20 developers on their bench (available). We’ve got 300+ devs.
3. Agencies don’t allow developer buy-out. You can hire our developer in-house after 1 year for “1-month salary” fee.
Will I have a contract with a developer or with Expert Remote?
With Expert Remote.
It’s risky to have 5 contracts with 5 remote developers from 5 different countries.
You’ll have a single B2B contract with our company. So, if smth goes wrong with IP or anything, you can always sue us :)
P.S. Our company is registered in the USA and Poland.
How does the pricing work?
Each developer has their own hourly rate with our commission already included.
We take between 15% and 30% from what you pay, which is 2-3x lower than typical agency fees.
No setup fees. You only pay after you hire a developer.
2-week paid trial. If you don’t like our developer after 2 weeks, we’ll apply a 25% discount on the hours worked.
1-week notice. You can ask for a replacement or cancel the contract within a week.
Which countries are your developers located in?
We source developers across 30+ countries.
Most popular countries: Armenia, Georgia, Poland, Serbia, Albania, Azerbaijan, Turkey, North Macedonia, Romania.
We also got developers in the USA, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Estonia, Bulgaria, Netherlands, Pakistan, India, Kenya, Nigeria, etc.
What are your average rates?
Rates start from $20/h. The median average is $35-40/h.
There’s always top 10% percentile candidates who are overpriced, and bottom 10% percentile underpriced ;) But most fall into the market rate category.
The beauty of global sourcing is tapping into unknown regions. Have you heard of North Macedonia? You can find senior developers for $25/h (our fee included)!
How do you ensure developer quality?
We source developers with marketing, which is 20-30x more effective than Linkedin. This creates us a huge flood of candidates.
Then we take this top of the funnel and feed it into our proprietary vetting process. Only top 1% of candidates make it through.
Part of the process is automated, which allows us to do it at scale. For instance, our recruiters have their calendars fully booked and able to conduct 200-250 soft-skill interviews a month.
What tech stacks do you have?
We have developers across all major stacks.
Back-end: Node.js, PHP, Python, JAVA, .NET, Ruby, GoLang etc.
Front-end: React, Angular, Vue.js, etc.
Mobile: Swift, Kotlin, React native, Flutter, etc.
AI/ML/Data Science is a big stream for us: machine learning, deep learning, NLP, computer vision, etc. Technologies: TensorFlow, PyTorch, Terraform, Pandas, AzureML, OpenCV, etc.
Can I hire the whole team?
Apart from developers we’ve got UI/UX designers, QAs, Product Managers, etc.
Based on your requirements we can assemble the whole engineering team.

Hire Dedicated Golang Developers
Go is an open-source compiled multi-threaded programming language developed by Google. Often it is also called “Golang” — short for “Google language.”
Go (Golang) is considered a general-purpose language, but its main use is the development of web services and client-server applications. According to GitHub, at the end of 2022, it was about to enter the top five in-demand languages, ahead of PHP, Ruby, and C#. Also, 11.15% of the expert developers surveyed by Stack Overflow said they are using this technology on a regular basis.
The Go language is an attempt to adopt the best aspects of languages such as C++ and Java. There is only one question left: will your project benefit from Golang? Read on to see if the decision to hire Golang developer is right for you!
Golang Developers: Job Description
Golang developers can build robust and highly scalable applications and web pages. Furthermore, they test and debug existing IT products using the Go language.
But apart from the language itself, its syntax, and documentation, what does a Golang developer need to know?
Skills to Check Before You Hire Go Developers
To hire a Golang developer, you should check if the developer has most of the skills below:
- Strong knowledge of Go lang
- HTML5 and CSS
- Experience with SQL and NoSQL databases such as PostgreSQL, Redis, MongoDB, RabbitMQ, and Kafka
- Understanding of containerization principles, experience with Docker and Kubernetes
- Experience in integrating with APIs of third-party web services
- Ability to write unit and integration tests
- Excellent knowledge of REST, HTTP, JSON
- Experience in high-load Golang projects, creating scalable solutions
- Knowledge of microservice architecture
- Ability to write scripts
- Knowledge of Git
- Some DevOps experience
These are technologies and frameworks which are most commonly used with Go lang.
Responsibilities of Golang Developers
Golang developers usually cover the following tasks:
- Building Go applications
- Improvement of Golang application performance
- Testing and debugging
- Code review
- Working with microservice architecture
- Working with the file system
- Development of multithreaded applications
- Writing SQL queries and their optimization
- Application of OOP principles and common design patterns
- Building RESTful APIs
The work includes a wide range of functionalities, but in simple words, Golang developers write code and maintain it to solve specific problems.
All Go Developers at Expert Remote At Least:
- Have mastered Go (Golang) core concepts (functions, structs, etc.). They are well aware that unlike in object-oriented languages like Java, the building blocks of Golang are types, functions, and packages.
- Can manage program crushes/errors smoothly and skilfully. Our Golang developers mainly use debuggers like Delve and GDB. Delve supports Go runtime concepts and built-in types, while GDB is supported through the standard Go and Gccgo compilers.
- Reuse code with packages. Go is designed as a language that encourages good engineering practices. One of the industry practices that allow you to create high-quality software is code reuse, called DRY — “Don’t Repeat Yourself”. Expert Remote’s employees reuse code to save time and resources and reduce redundancy by using assets that have already been created in one form or another during the development of a software product.
- Leverage Goroutines to create powerful software. Goroutines are lighter and cheaper than threads, which means using them allows developers to create more flexible solutions.
- Can write unit/functional/integration tests. Various types of tests ensure that the final result is optimized, works smoothly, and performs well. And there’re no bugs.
- Can create command-line programs. Command line programs help you to solve system administration tasks.
- Work with JSON REST APIs. The HTTP package in Golang makes it suitable for the effortless creation of REST APIs for client apps and data transfer.
- Never stop improving. If you hire Golang developers from Expert Remote, you can be sure that our guys are polishing their skills every single day. None of our employees considers themselves a complete expert.
What Go Developers Can Build for You
If you own a startup or small business, Golang developers can help you out with the following products:
- Cloud-based (server-side) apps. With Go, developers can handle heavy requests on the server-side with little memory usage. Its high portability also makes it an excellent choice for cloud-based solutions.
- News outlets. With Go, you can build highly efficient news outlets, and this is possible thanks to its multithreading capacity that helps save CPU memory space.
- Distributed network services. Go’s focus on concurrency and API support, together with its static compiled language design, makes it excellent for developing distributed event-handling systems that can scale.
- Media platforms. Support for multi-threading by default makes it easy to write code and add advanced features to powerful applications like media platforms. To do this, the Go programming language has goroutines and channels.
These are the most common types of apps and services built on Go (Golang). So if you didn’t find your case in the list — feel free to contact our consultants.
Hiring Process of Golang Developers
Usually, the hiring process consists of several stages:
- Identification of needs
- Determining the requirements for the position and the candidate
- Writing a job description
- Collection and sorting of responses
- Resume analysis
- Evaluation of candidates
- Final selection of candidates
- Testing (if necessary)
- Making an offer
It is advised to adjust this plan according to your business needs.
Interviewing Golang Developers
Evaluating Golang developers means not only checking their technical skills and analyzing their past experience. To hire the best candidates, it is equally important to evaluate their personal qualities.
Evaluating the Soft Skills of Go Developers
Here are some questions you can ask your candidates to figure out if they will be a good fit for your team:
1. What helps you achieve results in your work?
2. What makes you successful?
3. Do you consider yourself a leader? Why?
4. What do you find most challenging about your work?
5. What is the most rewarding part of your work?
6. What motivates you?
7. How do you solve problems in a team?
Evaluating the Hard Skills of Go Developers
Since the level of experience greatly impacts the role of an employee, we have to interview Golang developers according to their seniority levels.
Interview Questions for a Junior Golang Developer
Q: What do you like the most about Golang?
- The language has a simple syntax and structure, making it easy for beginners to learn
- It compiles very quickly, which saves time and money
- It is platform-independent and works seamlessly on multiple platforms like Windows, Linux, etc
- It is parallel, and multiple processes can easily work together
Q: What do you hate the most about it?
- There is no manual memory management tool that could cause garbage collection problems and pause the programming process
- Because the language is relatively new, many libraries are still not available to users
- Error handling in the language is inefficient
- Language safety at run time is not guaranteed
Interview Questions for a Middle Golang Developer
Q: What are structs in Go?
A: Structs are user-defined types that can group different types into one type. They are similar to classes in object-oriented languages.
Q: What is the Golang context?
A: A context is a package in Golang that is used to transfer requests, values, and signals across API boundaries to all necessary goroutines.
Interview Questions for a Senior Golang Developer
Q: How do you get input from users in Golang?
A: To get user input in Golang, you can use three functions: Scan(), Scanln(), and Scanf() — depending on what you need to do with the input afterward.
Q: What kind of garbage collection does Golang use?
A: The Go garbage collector is based on a three-color label and a cleanup algorithm. This algorithm allows Go to be garbage collected during program execution and run at the same time. This reduces the chance of stopping while the program is running. If there are any problems with the scheduler, it can be configured to run garbage collection for short periods of time.
Go Developer Salary Range in 2022
Here are the typical yearly rates of Go developers in the US based on their level of experience.
|Years of experience||Min Yearly Salary||Avg Yearly Salary||Max Yearly Salary|
The average hourly rates of Golang developers in the world range from $50 to $80. Also, if you want to hire dedicated Golang developers, note that the most expensive specialists are located in the USA while the cheapest are in India.
As you can see, Go (Golang) is a very promising technology on the rise. The support from Google and numerous unique features make this programming language a solid tool for back-end development.
At Expert Remote we can help you hire the best remote Golang developers. Our screening process is very thorough and only 1% of applicants pass through. You can be sure you are dealing with the best industry talent.
