Hire Developers

What is the usual rate for Node.js developers? 

There are several factors to consider when estimating the cost of your Node.js development project. Some of these factors include the complexity of your app, the project duration, and the level of expertise you need.


To give you something to start with, here is a table showing the annual salaries and hourly rates of Node.js developers from different countries. Figures and estimates are taken from PayScale.


     Average Node.js Developer Annual Salary       Average Node.js Developer Hourly Rate   
   United Kingdom    GBP 80,606 GBP 63
   United States USD 170,620 USD 98.5
   Canada CAD 133,340 CAD 58
   Australia AUD 131,348 AUD 60


Searching for Node.js developers locally is the usual route many businesses take. However, there are also companies and organisations from startups to large tech firms which are looking for other cost-efficient and quick ways to find the tech talent they need. These startups and tech firms are able to build their development teams fast and hassle-free through IT outsourcing.


Cloud Employee strives to be every startup and SME’s reliable IT outsourcing partner. We help these firms find smart and cost-effective alternatives to hiring expert Node.js developers, which, ultimately, is crucial in expanding the business. Our hiring solutions and competitive industry rates not only help you find skilled Node.js developers for hire, but it can also save you up to 65% on overhead costs.    

What interview techniques should you use to hire the best Node.js developer?

When looking for Node.js developers for hire and tech talents in general, keep in mind that the purpose of the interview is to evaluate the candidate’s ability within a limited time, and not to merely pose difficult and challenging tasks or problems.


There are a lot of readily available resources online shedding light on the best practices in hiring software developers. Some of these great practices include exploring external resources, using referrals, as well as asking the right questions.


Since you are interviewing tech talents, it only makes sense to conduct technical tests. While they have skills listed down in their CVs, witnessing first-hand how a candidate approaches and solves problems can be a better help in gauging their skills.


Here are a few questions and problems you can ask as a test:


Q: What is the difference between Node.js and Ajax?

A: Both of these technologies are the advanced implementations of JavaScript but they serve totally different purposes:


AJAX (short for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) is a client-side technology which is used primarily for updating contents or sections of a page without having to update the entire page.


Node.js, on the other hand, is a server-side technology which is used for developing server software. Node.js makes it possible to develop a database system with JS since it is executed by a server and not a browser.


Q: Explain the role of REPL in Node.js.

A: REPL (Read Eval Print Loop), is a virtual environment that, as its name suggests, performs these tasks: Read, Evaluate, Print, and Loop. The REPL in Node.js is used to execute ad-hoc JavaScript elements, as well as to test, debug, or experiment on Node.js/JavaScript code.


Q: What are “streams” in Node.js? Explain the different types of streams present in Node.js.

A: In Node.js, streams are objects allowing the reading of data from the source and the writing of data to the destination to be a continuous process.


There are four fundamental types of streams within Node.js:


  • Writable - streams that facilitate the writing operation (for example, fs.createWriteStream()).
  • Readable - streams that facilitate the reading operation (for example, fs.createReadStream()).
  • Duplex - streams that are both Readable and Writable (for example, net.Socket).
  • Transform - Duplex streams that perform computations based on the available input and can modify or transform the data as it is written and read (for example, zlib.createDeflate()).


Q: Name the types of API functions in Node.js.

A: There are two types of functions in Node.js:


#1: Blocking functions
In this function, all other code is blocked from executing until an I/O event that is being waited on occurs. Blocking functions execute synchronously. Here is an example:


const fs = require('fs');
const data = fs.readFileSync('/'); // blocks here until file is read
// moreWork(); will run after console.log


Taking a look at this code, the second line blocks the execution of additional JavaScript until the file is read. Moreover, moreWork () will only be called after console.log.


#2: Non-blocking functions
In a non-blocking operation, multiple I/O calls can be performed without having to wait for the execution of the program being halted. Non-blocking functions execute asynchronously.


Take a look at this example: 


const fs = require('fs');
fs.readFile('/', (err, data) => {
if (err) throw err;
// moreWork(); will run before console.log


fs.readFile () is non-blocking, so moreWork () does not need to wait for the file read to complete before being called.

Meanwhile, we provide your offshore Node.js developers with full IT support and fast internet connection in our modern offices. In addition, Cloud Employee looks after all administrative concerns, giving you the freedom to focus on managing your team and running your business. Our offshore Node.js developers can help you with creating and modifying web servers, generating dynamic page content, and collecting form data among many others.

What is the dedicated developer model?

Cloud Employee employs a Dedicated Developer Model that is instrumental in helping our clients avoid the risks and extra costs of traditional outsourcing.


What makes this model special? With the dedicated developer setup, the dedicated offshore Node.js developer or development team you will hire with us will be seamlessly added to your in-house team in as fast as two weeks. As their name suggests, dedicated developers work exclusively for you and use only your processes, tools, and standards.


Thanks to the hiring flexibility that it offers, this model is considered the best engagement model when outsourcing. Should you need to scale your development team according to your business’ needs at any point in the development phase, it can be easily and efficiently done with this model.


On top of this, you only pay a single sum of money. This includes the offshore team member’s monthly salary and the outsourcing provider’s fee—and nothing more.



  • The best choice for long-term projects that have a constantly changing scope and undefined project specifications
  • Ideal for projects with an indefinite project scope as long as there is a predictable budget
  • Clients have full control of the processes from recruitment to the actual management of the outsourced dedicated Node.js developer or development team. 
  • Clients personally monitor and assess the quality of performance and output of the outsourced Node.js team
  • Since the offshore dedicated Node.js team works exclusively for you, they understand your objectives, goals, standards, and expectations clearly; it is easier to engage them and motivate them compared to freelancers



  • Not ideal for projects with little to no tasks delegated to the outsourced development team.
  • Not the best model for clients who will not be able to work directly with and collaborate with their offshore Node.js developers.


In general, the dedicated hiring model suits these businesses the most:


  • Businesses which want to work with a Node.js development team that works exclusively for their project
  • Businesses which want to cut down their hiring and recruitment costs
  • Businesses which prefer flexibility and scalability, especially while in the middle of the development


Cloud Employee is trusted by more than a hundred startups and SMEs from all over the world for their JavaScript and Node.js development needs because of this convenient and client-oriented model. Through the model and the setup we offer, our developers follow our clients’ time zones; this means that they work together at the same time as if part of their in-house team. This reduces the risks and hassle of miscommunication and other inconveniences. 


We offer all of these services at competitive industry rates, which makes us the number one choice and the best IT outsourcing partner for many startups and SMEs.
