This is true of everyone on the team, except maybe when you need a certain coding specialist that will be there for only a short time.

Do they follow procedures and keep to standards? Get[Devs] checks these things out during the interview process, but you will want to be sure as well. Never be worried that your questions maybe too close to what the applicant has already answered. Ask again! You can never be too sure that someone is perfect for a position as your developer. Your procedures and a development team’s standards are an important part of getting the job done correctly the first time.

Check their portfolio and any previous work they have done. Ask about what you are seeing and listen to how they explain the work they have done. Check over the testing and interviewing reports that Get[Devs] has done for you, either through a meeting or by reading the interview notes.
