Customers love TurnKey (and we love them back!)

3 Years in a Row Best in KLAS for Ambulatory Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) Services

"TurnKey is the only offshore firm we've interacted with that really places an emphasis on retention. They seem to be the only ones that understand how important retention is to maintaining strong product development cycles. Our churn rate with TurnKey has been under 5% annually whereas we were at more than 50% with our previous vendor!"

We've hired 5 full-time software engineers through TurnKey. To date, not a single engineer has left our contract/arrangement. We worked with several U.S.-based recruitment firms, and none matched the speed and quality of candidates referred by TurnKey. Most impressive and unique about TurnKey is their willingness to reach for the perfect candidate. Our requirements are strict, and they did not compromise.

"It's been nearly two years of us working together and we have not had the need to replace a single developer. The programmers have all performed very well and TurnKey has been able to give us information that has helped to retain our key players."


Mackezie Drazan (US)

CEO of MiResource

We have hired 5 total developers including tech lead, full stack, dev ops and firmware. For each hire, a strong pipeline of candidates was provided, and the TurnKey team performed a lot of pre-screening such that those that entered the funnel were strong and relevant. They also helped with setting salary comp, and closing. Finally they continue to provide HR services as well as legal admin services associated with employment of a geographically diverse group of developers.

We started with 8 hired developers and there have been no problems with any of the hires. We are currently monitoring them as we do all engineers but there is nothing to report that would make us consider this arrangement with TurnKey anything but successful. The transparent pricing up front as well as the genuine desire to continue improving with each hire we make is a big difference maker for us.

TurnKey provided high-quality talent at a cost-effective price. We employed TurnKey to manage the hiring/HR/Legal for >80% of our entire Product team - from identifying and hiring Team Leads, to agent level support roles. I also appreciated that they were proactive in suggesting certain criteria and requirements when first starting our search for key team lead members.

Founder & CEO of ResNet AI Inc.
The Best E-Signature Software According to G2

We reviewed several similar companies and along with the cost the major deciding factor was the quality of experienced candidates TurnKey was presenting to us. The additional team members worked alongside our scrum teams delivering new feature functionality and enhancements to our platform.We're impressed with the quality of their candidates and the work ethic they demonstrate on a day-to-day basis in our agile ceremonies.


Sandy Speirs (US)

Director Of Engineering at Sertifi, Inc.

TurnKey is well versed in the startup ecosystem and really understands our needs when it comes to offshore dev, particularly how our needs may be different than the needs of a huge public company. I don’t have to explain as much to TurnKey as I have had to do with other offshore vendors—they seem to get it on the first take. But at the end of the day, all we really care about is quality, and TurnKey has delivered the goods on this front better than other firms we’ve worked with in the past.

Key Questions – and Answers! – about Full Stack developers


Why is Full Stack development popular?

Full Stack development has gained immense popularity in recent years, and there are several reasons for this. 

Firstly, a Full Stack developer has the capability to handle both front-end and back-end development. This means they have the versatility to manage all aspects of development, from designing the user interface to managing databases and server infrastructure. This broad skill set makes Full Stack developers especially valuable in small to medium-sized teams, where roles are often less defined, and more flexibility is required. 

Secondly, having a single person or team handle the entire development process can lead to more cohesive and efficient outcomes. It reduces the risk of communication gaps and misunderstandings that can occur when different people work on different parts of the project. Lastly, Full Stack developers have a holistic view of the project, which allows them to make better decisions and come up with more effective solutions. They can understand how changes in one part of the project can impact other parts, allowing them to anticipate problems and address them proactively.

How to hire a Full Stack developer?

Hiring a Full Stack developer might seem like a daunting task given the vast range of skills required, but with a systematic approach, it can be made simpler. The first step in hiring a Full Stack developer is to have a clear understanding of your project requirements and the skills needed to fulfill those requirements. You need to identify the technologies your project will use, the level of experience required, and any specific skills or knowledge that would be beneficial. 

Once you have a clear picture of what you need, you can start sourcing candidates. There are several ways to find Full Stack developers - you can post job ads on online job boards, use professional networking sites like LinkedIn, attend tech meetups and events, or use tech recruitment agencies. After receiving applications, the next step is to screen them based on their skills, experience, and portfolio. Shortlist candidates who meet your criteria and invite them for an interview. 

During the interview, assess their technical knowledge, problem-solving skills, and cultural fit. You can also give them a coding test or a small project to evaluate their practical skills. Finally, once you've found a candidate who meets all your criteria, extend a job offer. Keep in mind that hiring a Full Stack developer is not just about finding someone with the right skills - they should also be a good fit for your company culture and share your vision and values.

However, if you want to skip all this hassle and immediately get  help to build a team of Full Stack developers that can integrate, and grow while they make a valuable contribution to your projects, partner with us and experience our unique tech staffing solutions as we live and breathe cultural integration. TurnKey is the accelerated way to unlock the full potential of Full Stack development services, reap the benefits of a global workforce, and achieve long-term success.

What skills should you look for when hiring top Full Stack engineers?

Full Stack engineers are expected to have a wide range of skills spanning both front-end and back-end technologies. On the front-end side, they should be proficient in technologies like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and front-end frameworks such as Angular, React, or Vue.js. They should be able to create clean, efficient, and responsive user interfaces that provide a seamless user experience. On the back-end side, they should be skilled in programming languages such as Node.js, Python, Ruby, PHP, or Java. They should know how to build robust and secure server-side applications, manage databases, and implement APIs. 

In addition to these, Full Stack engineers should also have a good understanding of databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, and be able to design, implement, and manage databases effectively. Knowledge of version control systems like GitHub is also crucial as it helps manage changes to the codebase and facilitates collaboration among team members. A good Full Stack engineer should also be familiar with API design principles and have experience in integrating third-party APIs. Besides these technical skills, Full Stack engineers should possess strong problem-solving abilities, attention to detail, and excellent communication skills. They should also be adaptable and willing to continuously learn and upgrade their skills to keep up with the rapidly evolving tech landscape.

Hiring the best full stack engineers for your needs is exactly where TurnKey can really help. During our recruiting process, every candidate is put through a robust screening protocol. And since our recruiting process is based on years of best practice and scientific rigor, we always find a perfect match for your company’s needs.

We are well known for having the lowest churn rate of any tech staffing agency post-hire. Here’s a sneak peek of what our typical recruiting path looks like.

We take great pride in our ability to find and hire the-match developers for top startups across various industries. Our robust screening protocol, expert recruitment team, and perfect retention program are the key pillars of our success. Our success speaks for itself – recently, we hired 16 developers for Headspace, a leading mental health startup in the US. We were able to identify the perfect-match developers who had the right technical skills and fit well with the company culture. These developers have since become an integral part of the Headspace team, contributing significantly to the company’s growth and success.

Top interview questions to hire Full Stack developers

When hiring Full Stack developers, the interview questions should cover a wide range of topics to assess their knowledge and skills in both front-end and back-end technologies. You might ask about their experience with specific languages, frameworks, databases, or APIs. For example, you could ask them to explain how they would go about building a certain feature, or how they would solve a particular problem. You could also present them with a coding problem to solve, or ask them to review a piece of code and suggest improvements. 

Questions about past projects can provide insight into their hands-on skills, how they apply their knowledge in real-world situations, and how they handle challenges. You could ask them to describe a project they're particularly proud of, or a challenging problem they had to solve, and how they went about it. In addition to technical questions, it's also important to ask questions that assess their soft skills, like communication, teamwork, and problem-solving. For instance, you could ask them to describe a situation where they had to work as part of a team to solve a problem, or a time when they had to explain a complex technical concept to a non-technical person.

What are the tools used by Full Stack developers?

Full Stack developers use a wide array of tools to do their job effectively. These can be classified into several categories. For editing and writing code, they use text editors and integrated development environments (IDEs), which provide features like syntax highlighting, code completion, and debugging. Examples of these tools include Sublime Text, Atom, and Visual Studio Code. 

For managing different versions of code, they use version control systems like Git, which helps track changes, revert to previous versions if needed, and facilitates collaboration among team members. For designing the front-end of applications, Full Stack developers use frameworks like Angular, React, or Vue.js, which provide pre-written code to handle common tasks, thus speeding up development. On the back-end side, they might use frameworks like Express.js (for Node.js), Django (for Python), or Laravel (for PHP). These frameworks help structure the back-end code and provide utilities for common server-side tasks.

For handling databases, Full Stack developers use database management systems like MySQL, PostgreSQL, or MongoDB, depending on whether the data is structured (SQL) or unstructured (NoSQL). Other tools used by Full Stack developers include package managers like npm or yarn, which automate the process of installing, updating, and managing software libraries; build tools like Webpack or Gulp, which automate tasks like minifying code or compiling source files; and testing frameworks like Jest or Mocha, which help write and run tests to ensure the code works as expected.

If you choose TurnKey Labs, we can handle the entire hiring process, from screening candidates to conducting interviews, and provide ongoing support throughout the engagement. We have a large pool of pre-vetted candidates, ensuring that you get matched with top-tier Full Stack developers who can contribute to your project's success.
