AngularJS developers are skilled JavaScript developers who are also well acquainted with some theoretical concepts of software engineering. Unlike some other JavaScript frameworks, AngularJS requires the developer to do things the “Angular” way, which is a set of rules and practices that allow developers to make the best use of the framework and build robust efficient web applications. This makes it necessary for developers to actually know AngularJS inside-out, and not just be a great JavaScript programmer.

A great JavaScript developer is good for an AngularJS based project. However, what is great is a JavaScript developer who is well versed on the best practices that are critical to building AngularJS web applications properly. When you are looking for an expert AngularJS developer, posting a generic JavaScript developer job ad will bring in numerous applications from candidates who may be strong at programming in JavaScript, but barely have any knowledge of AngularJS.

This article will provide you with a sample AngularJS developer job description that will help you write a perfect job ad, and assure that you find and hire the person that matches your specific criteria.

  • Writing non-blocking code, and resorting to advanced techniques such as multi-threading, when needed
  • Creating custom, general use modules and components which extend the elements and modules of core AngularJS
  • Experience with all levels of operation available to the front-end, such as from creating XHRs in vanilla JS to using a custom wrapper around $resource
  • Experience with building the infrastructure for serving the front-end app and assets
  • Architecting and automating the build process for production, using task runners or scripts
  • Documenting the code inline using JSDoc or other conventions
