Back End Developers
Web developers build, test, and maintain websites. Front-end software engineers work on the client-side view of the website: the images, text, and navigation tools that guide a user’s experience. Back-end software engineers work on the server-side programming of the website: all the components that make the front end run smoothly.
According to the recent Stack Overflow Developer Survey, 44% of all developers identify as “back-end developers” (compared to 27.42% front end developers). And according to a survey of recruiters, “back end developers top the list of the most in-demand tech jobs.”
Demand is only likely to grow in the coming years. The US Bureau of Labor and Statistics estimates a 13% growth by 2028 for all web development positions, “faster than the average for all occupations.”
Back-end developers have been a perennial need in the recruiting world for years. Many back-end development staffing agencies advertise quick turnarounds for full-time, freelance, and overseas talent to differentiate themselves.
NewConfig is a unique back-end development staffing firm. We promise quick results, but we also understand that a good hire is more important than an immediate result.
Our clients work with NewConfig because we understand the technology and the people. Our recruiters are former development professionals, and over the years, we have built an impressive roster of connections within the web development community.

Since demand is historically high for back-end developer jobs, the top professionals can pick and choose desired positions. Ensure you attract professionals with the appropriate skills and enthusiasm for your project.
Find a Great Portfolio
Most web developers build portfolios to showcase skills, passions, and successful projects. Examining portfolios is often the most effective way to assess back-end developer skills and programming languages. Yet, the portfolio will also reveal crucial insights about the candidates’ style and enthusiasm for the work.
