Hire dedicated Golang developers
Golang (aka “Go”) is an open-source programming language designed by Google. Its syntax is similar to C, with added features like memory safety, garbage collection, and structure-based typing.
With its simplicity and efficiency, Go has gained popularity since its release in 2007, and developers use it for things like cloud-based programming, game development, and data science.
However, where should you look to hire dedicated Golang developers? The demand for devs continues to increase as Go gets even more popular, and hiring Golang developers who aren’t the right fit for your company can also cost you thousands of dollars.

How to hire Golang developers
What is Golang?
Golang (aka “Go”) is an open-source programming language developed at Google in 2007. At the time, Google was snowballing, and the code used to manage its infrastructure was also growing quickly in size and complexity.
Some Google Cloud engineers began to feel that this large and complex codebase was slowing them down, so they built a new programming language focused on simplicity and quick performance.
Go became an open-source project and was released publicly in 2012. (Also, the compiler and other programming language tools developed by Google are free and open source.) It quickly became popular and is now one of the leading modern programming languages.
Many top companies use Go, including Dropbox, Twitch, SoundCloud, AmEx, and Medium.
Who is a Golang developer?
A Golang developer is a programmer who works with the Go programming language. Because Go is a multi-purpose language, Golang developers can work on different software projects.
A Go developer specializes in building software applications using the Go programming language. Their roles and responsibilities include designing and developing applications, writing and testing code, and optimizing application performance.
They must understand software development and collaborate effectively with other teams.
What are the top Golang frameworks?
Many Golang frameworks exist to make it easier to build web apps and software. Here are some of the best:
- Gin: Gin is a popular web framework for high-performance apps. It has a fast router and supports middleware, making adding features such as authentication, logging, and caching easy.
- Echo: Echo is a lightweight web framework for building RESTful APIs and web services. It provides routing, middleware, and templating features, making it easy to build scalable and maintainable apps.
- Beego: Beego is a full-stack framework for building complex web apps. It provides ORM, caching, and session management, so it’s easy to build secure and scalable apps.
- Revel: Revel is a high-productivity framework that helps developers build web apps quickly. It provides hot code reloading, automatic code generation, and multiple template engine support.
- Buffalo: Buffalo is a modular framework that helps developers build web apps quickly. It provides asset pipeline, database migrations, and authentication, making building secure and scalable apps easy.
These are just some of the top Golang frameworks. Which one you choose will depend on your specific requirements and the type of app you’re building.
How much does it cost to hire dedicated Golang developers with Gun.io?
We get a lot of questions about how to hire Golang developers and how much they’ll cost. The short answer is this: If you have a budget, we can design a solution to suit your needs. But planning for a future headcount is much easier when you have numbers and data.
With this in mind, we don’t have standard prices on Gun.io. Instead, we offer flexible retainers based on your needs, the project, and the developers’ salary expectations. These retainers start at $5,000 per month. This price includes Gun.io’s fee, and you’ll see the total price upfront on developers’ profiles. There are no extra fees.
To help you move forward and hire dedicated Golang developers, we’ve gathered data from recent hires on the Gun.io platform. These numbers represent the averages and ranges for developer costs within their respective experience and geography bands.
This data is a great place to understand how companies you’re competing with think about their investment with each hire.
We recommend using this data as a guide. You’ll still need to consider other factors to determine the best Golang developer for hire.

Can I hire a Golang developer part-time?
Yes, you can! At Gun.io, you can hire Golang developers on a full-time, part-time, or contract-to-hire basis.
