How to hire a great freelance R Programmer
If you're not up to date with the latest computer programming trends and sometimes feel that IT talk is like another language to you, with ‘R’ you might not be far wrong.
R is a programming language used in statistical computing, and advanced R is commonly utilized by statisticians for analyzing data drawn from a company's software, and no matter how familiar you are with R web, R website and R programming, the popularity of R is on the rise!
R takes its name from its creators - Ross Ihaka and Robert Gentleman - and is a play on the already established programming language 'S'. There are many R user interfaces available which make R programming easier to comprehend for all levels of knowledge ranging from a beginner who is looking to gain a basic understanding of R to experts looking to understand and utilise advanced R.
R is one of many programming languages in operation within the computing sector. However, it is unique in that the technical skills required to understand and more importantly, speak the language, are extremely specific and precise and require a level of professionalism in delivering the R programming language and results successfully.
If you know that an R programmer is what your company needs for your next project but your R knowledge doesn't quite meet the mark then hiring a freelancer through Freelancer.com could make the development process simple for you!
R is becoming more and more popular due to how easily an R user interface can run on differing platforms (including Windows). There are thousands of freelance R programmers to choose from on Freelancer.com, who are all highly skilled and extremely competent in R.
Rather than trawl through hundreds of applicants trying to find the right candidate you can post your job on Freelancer.com and see who responds to you with their interest - not all freelance R programmers will be available or willing to take on your job so this is a much less time-consuming way to see who is interested rather than pitching your R programming job to hundreds.
A freelance R programmer will carry out your task at a fraction of the cost you would pay for an R programmer via a specific business technology company. The nature of their work means that they often work from home so that their overheads are less, and they can pass those savings onto you. As well as this, you’ll probably find freelancer programmers are more likely to work at all times of the day and night to get your job done quickly, rather than relying on a programmer to do it during 9 to 5 hours from a traditional office environment.
R programmers hired through Freelancer.com allow you only to pay for their output, and if you agree on a timeline for the project, and it is completed within this time frame you won't incur any hidden extra charges.
If you are looking for a permanent R programmer for your company, hiring through Freelancer.com allows you to choose someone and sample their work before making a commitment to them to full-time employment - often people are hired based on skills that they say they have which they have no way of delivering when it comes to the crunch so hiring an R programming expert through Freelancer.com will wholly eliminate that risk and the cost to your company.
