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.


Ryan Rice (US)

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 Node.JS developers


Why is Node.js development necessary?

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript runtime environment that allows developers to use JavaScript for server-side scripting—running scripts server-side to produce dynamic web page content before the page is sent to the user's web browser. Its non-blocking, event-driven architecture makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices. Moreover, Node.js uses a single-threaded model with event looping which helps servers respond in a non-blocking manner that makes servers highly scalable as opposed to traditional servers which create limited threads to handle requests. In essence, Node.js becomes a go-to technology when building large-scale, real-time, speed-sensitive applications.

How to hire a Node.js developer?

The process of hiring a Node.js developer involves several key steps. Firstly, it's crucial to clearly define your project requirements - this includes the technical skills required, the scope of work, and the project timeline. Once you've defined your requirements, the next step is sourcing candidates. This could involve posting job advertisements, reaching out to your network, or working with a recruitment agency. After you've sourced candidates, the screening process begins. This typically involves reviewing resumes, conducting initial interviews, and assessing candidates' technical skills. After screening, the most promising candidates are then interviewed in-depth. Interviews can provide valuable insights into a candidate's technical abilities, problem-solving skills, and cultural fit. Once the interviews are completed, the final step is making a job offer. 

It's important to note that the hiring process can be time-consuming and complex. However, if you want to skip all this hassle and immediately get help to build a team of Node.js 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 Node.js, reap the benefits of a global workforce, and achieve long-term success.

What skills should you look for when hiring top Node.js engineers?

When hiring a Node.js developer, there are several key skills to look for. 

Firstly, expertise in JavaScript is a must, as Node.js is a JavaScript runtime. A deep understanding of Node.js and its core principles, such as non-blocking I/O and event-driven programming, is also crucial. 

Additionally, experience with Express.js, a popular Node.js framework, is highly desirable. Proficiency in RESTful API integration is another key skill, as this is often a major part of Node.js development work. 

Knowledge of databases, both SQL and NoSQL, is also important, as this is where your application's data will be stored. 

Finally, a solid understanding of front-end technologies like HTML, CSS, and client-side JavaScript is essential, as the developer may need to work closely with front-end developers or even do some front-end work themselves. 

It's also worth considering the developer's soft skills, such as their communication skills, problem-solving abilities, and teamwork.

Hiring the best Node.js 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 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.

What are the main interview questions to hire Node.js developers?

The interview process for a Node.js developer typically involves a mix of technical questions and behavioral questions. Technical questions might include things like "How do you handle asynchronous operations in Node.js?" or "Can you explain the event-driven programming in Node.js?". These types of questions allow you to assess the candidate's technical knowledge and problem-solving skills. Behavioral questions, on the other hand, might include things like "Can you describe a time when you had to solve a particularly challenging problem?" or "How do you handle feedback and criticism?". These questions help you assess whether the candidate would be a good fit for your team and company culture. It's also common to ask candidates about their past projects and experiences, as this can provide valuable insights into their practical skills and abilities.

What are the tools used by Node.js developers?

Node.js developers use a variety of tools to help them code more efficiently and effectively. These can include integrated development environments (IDEs) like Visual Studio Code or Atom, which provide features like code completion and debugging. Node.js developers also frequently use package managers like npm or Yarn, which make it easy to manage project dependencies. For building web applications, frameworks like Express.js or Hapi.js are commonly used. And for interacting with databases, tools like Mongoose for MongoDB or Sequelize for SQL databases can be used. Testing tools like Mocha or Jest are also important for ensuring code quality, and version control systems like Git are essential for managing code changes and collaborating with other developers.

How to create a hiring funnel for Node.js engineers?

A hiring funnel is a way to visualize the process of turning applicants into employees.
