RFPs speed up the process of hiring a Front-End Developer. Non-qualified candidates are screened out, and details are made clear up front to reduce confusion. As you structure your hiring, use a scoring system to review quotes. Later, use details from the chosen proposal to write the contract.
First, go over all requirements of the Front-End Developer position. Second, review all skills involved in day-to-day. Third, acquaint candidates with the company culture and find out how they may fit in as part of the team. Always save time for follow-up questions.
