To hire effectively, you first need to understand the role and responsibilities of a WebRTC developer. Essentially, WebRTC developers are responsible for creating and maintaining real-time communication applications, such as video conferencing tools, live chats, and peer-to-peer file-sharing systems.
WebRTC is free. It’s an open-source project that provides web browsers and mobile applications with real-time communication via simple application programming interfaces (APIs). It allows audio and video communication to work inside web pages by allowing direct peer-to-peer communication, eliminating the need to install plugins or download native apps. Supported by Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, and Opera, WebRTC is used in various applications including video conferencing and file sharing.
A competent WebRTC developer should possess a mix of specific technical and soft skills to efficiently carry out their tasks. The following table outlines some key skills to look out for:

But it’s not just about recruitment; it’s about a comprehensive solution that gives full ownership and control back to the client, ensuring a seamless integration of high-quality developers into their in-house teams. Let’s delve into the MiResource case to illustrate this:
